BOSS has announced the availability of the DD-500 digital delay pedal.

BOSS DD-500 wide

Filled with newly developed BOSS technology, it offers 12 distinctive delay modes and extraordinary audio quality, along with deep editing controls, a graphic display, patch memories, MIDI and more. Small in size and massive in creative potential, the DD-500 allows musicians to create any delay sound they can imagine.

The DD-500 delivers sophisticated sound-making capabilities in a compact design that fits easily on any pedalboard. Each delay mode has been carefully crafted for a unique sonic personality and highly musical tones at every setting, realized by high-powered DSP running at 32-bit/96 kHz.

Included among the DD-500’s 12 modes are basic delays, warm analog and tape echo types, pattern-based effects, and complex modern delay lines that employ pitch shifting, filtering and other unique processing. The pedal’s Vintage Digital mode offers BOSS’s first emulations of sought-after classics from the 1980s, including the legendary SDE-2000 and SDE-3000 rack units from Roland and the BOSS DD-2, the first stompbox digital delay.

  • Studio-level stereo sound with 32-bit/96 kHz processing throughout.
