    Hey guys. The DigiDelay has always had a special place in my heart. I thought it looked cool and had tons of features, so after trying a DD-3 for a few months, and my first DE-7 broke, I sprung for this little guy and used it for quite awhile.

    The delays are crisp but not harsh. They are similar to a DD-3 but colored slightly different. (It's hard to explain. If a guy was a delay freak he'd own both of the pedals for different slight colorations on songs.) The reverse mode is cool, but not exactly what I was expecting as I wanted to solo in reverse in real time. Not so. You will play notes, and depending on the mix they might be silent, then return back to you in a couple hundred milliseconds backwards (not the phrase, the notes only).

    You'll find that Ping Pong (normal) mode is king. That setting had me reeling for hours. Bounce. And while "Tape" mode was a nice addition, it was only slightly warmer but still obviously digital. "A warmer color" is more of a description. Still an excellent alternative to the digital mode, and it may become your mainstay.

    Mod Delay in my opinion is unique and phrasy, but is best when used sparingly. A little too "out of the box" (flangy delay) but still a worthy alternative to the line-up (much like EHX's "Flerb" on the Holy Grail). Oh, and we have slap back. Purely digital metallic slap, as if you were in a metal chamber the size of a gymnasium. Very metallic yet still somewhat natural.

    The chassis (on all of these Digitech stomps) are solid like a brick. Overall this pedal is a worthy investment, and I'd give you a high-five if you got one. HOWEVER There's only one contender that beats out the DigiDelay for me : the DE-7. But it is prone to breaking so a re-house may be in order. If only the Ibanez pedals had the reliability and solid chassis this DigiDelay did...

    This was my first delay pedal, and I honestly am glad that I got it. It was cheap, it was easy to become familiar with, and I learned some pretty cool stuff from using it. However, a couple years have passed. I've used some higher-end equipment. I now have the ability to compare and contrast, and when using this next to my other delays, this one just seems to fade in comparison.

    My biggest gripe is that the delayed signal has a tendency to clip or distort when the incoming signal is deemed too high. This could be either if I strum hard or if I stack delays (which I do quite often for swells). The digital delay showed this the most, actually. The one thing that I hoped it would be able to do best was what showed its flaw the most. The digitally repeated signal just colored and distorted my original signal too much for what I wanted. While I recognize that this interaction may be interesting to a few, a digital delay is intended to recreate the signal flawlessly as opposed to an analog or tape delay.

    Another issue that I came across is that this pedal may have too many features. Sure, the multiple delay times for the digital delay is nice. Yeah, the analog emulation is decent. The ping pong delay and the reverse delay are fun. But... a 4 second looper? The idea of having a looper and a delay in the same pedal in this price range sounds appealing, but you ultimately get what you pay for. Because of such a short amount of time to work with, it's almost unusable unless you have a short (and I mean short) riff that you want played over and over. Another thing that I noticed was that there's a tap tempo option with this pedal. I didn't know this until I had owned the thing for two years, and I only stumbled upon it when I accidentally held the pedal down longer than I wanted. Granted, this is a nice feature, but it's not very accessible. And in the end, I begin to wonder if there might be so many features that Digitech tried to pack into one pedal that it might have detracted from what the effect could have been if they instead focused on putting out just one really good pedal.

    Maybe I'm whining about something that isn't worth complaining about. But three years down the road, I'm looking to get rid of this pedal. It was nice to start with, but looking back, I wish I had saved an extra couple money so I could get something a bit nicer.

      Comments about DigiTech DigiDelay Digital Delay Pedal:

      Im on my second one-first one fried on me within 2 years.I don't know what it is about this pedal but I like it and it has become part of my sound in spite of its shortcomings.It is not a pristine delay by any means-loop is useless,and when on the the most extreme delay settings it starts to "growl" or "whine" when you bend a note(folks that own this pedal will know what I mean)I only use 3 settings on the knob:classic delay,reverby delay,and for effect sometimes the reverse delay.I actually modded this pedal with an "adjustment wheel"so I can change modes with my foot,I know it sounds crazy but it works for me.I have had this one for about 4 years now and it's still going strong.This is not the best delay you can buy,but it suits my needs and if it broke I would probably throw it against the wall and go buy another new one.

          Comments about DigiTech DigiDelay Digital Delay Pedal:

          This is an excellent delay pedal. I've never used an analog delay, so I don't know if I'd prefer it to digital delay, but this pedal really sounds awesome if you ask me. It sure does for all the music I play anyway (mostly metal, punk, and alternative). Also, I've had no noticeable noise from this pedal, even recording through a PC, unless I max out the level knob (which I never do anyway, I just wanted to see if it would make any noise).

          A lot of the cheaper delay pedals that I was looking at all had less than 1 second of maximum delay time, and I thought I may need more, so I decided to try this one. This pedal has more delay time than I will ever use. I have not found a use for the reverse mode yet, but I've been having a lot of fun with the loop mode.

          This pedal is very easy to use, but the loop mode takes a little getting used to. To use the loop mode you hold the pedal down while you play the riff you want looped and then let it back up when you're done playing it. If you do not immediately start playing that riff as soon as you press the pedal down, or you don't let the pedal back up as soon as you're done playing it, the loop will not smoothly play over and over and you will get some empty space in your recording. I guess it should have been obvious that it would do that though. Once you get used to it it's not too hard, and unless you're using it in a live situation you can just try again if you mess up the recording. You can record only up to 4 seconds, which is not always enough, but it's still a very neat feature that's a lot of fun to fool around with and it does come in very handy sometimes, even when you're playing live. I kind of wish it had a "note freeze" function, but if you do it right the loop function will kind of do that.

          The only "issue" you should be aware of is that if you put the level knob past the 2 o'clock position, the first repeat is louder than the original signal. Personally I don't consider this to be a bad thing because every other pedal I have will also increase the signal volume if I turn up the level too much, so I'm not in the habit of having my level knobs up very high.

          Anyway, this is a very awesome delay pedal. Lots of features, more delay than most people will ever use, and it's built like a tank. I would not worry about needing a backup. I bought my pedal used so I did not pay the price of a new one, but if something ever happened to this pedal I would go buy a new one ASAP at full price without hesitation because it is totally worth it and I wouldn't want to have to take the time to find another used one in good shape. If I could only have two pedals, this would be one of them (the other would be a distortion pedal). Needless to say, I would recommend this pedal to everyone.

          DigiDelay Digital Delay Pedal I was dissapointed, I had bought this pedal a few years back and this was it's second go around with me. I needed something that I could use for the reverse note effect and this pedal just did not work for me. It is good as far as a dely goes.

              This does the job. The digital sound coloration is present but you need to listen closely to hear it. This was the first delay I bought in 2001 and I still use it to this day for recording and gigs. If delay is integral to your sound (for example, U2 delay) than you should get EvenTide, Memory Man or a pedal like those. But if you are looking for some basic delay sounds and versatility at a good price than this is the one to get.

              Lot's of Options and Great Sound!

              By Michael homan

              from New Oxford, PA

              Comments about DigiTech DigiDelay Digital Delay Pedal:

              Overall I think the Digitech delay is a great buy for cost, performance, and its well constructed style... made of metal, not plastic!
              I had one of these pedals years ago and sold it when I thought I was going to give up playing. Well, I did not stop playing, and ended up buying my second DigiDelay. I like the different options or settings. For a single pedal it is well worth the price. I would recommend this effects pedal to anyone that is serious about having a good delay pedal for leads and solo's. I have several DigiTech pedals and find them all every bit worth what I paid for them.
              The quality of most Digitech pedals is solid and well constructed. I never had one of their pedals break or stop working on me in my twenty years of owning them.
              As for digital delays, I think the price was well worth it. I had a few other dlays over the years, some costing much more, yet they were not better. I rate the value of this pedal as very good.
