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.

    Excellent functionality for a digital delay. The options for reverse delay and up to 4 second loop recorder are fantastic. I have found it quite versatile and easily adjustable. Very happy with this.

      Comments about DigiTech DigiDelay Digital Delay Pedal:

      I remembered loving this when It first came out. I also borrowed it from a friend to compare with Boss' version.

      When a friend posted the SDOTD on this, I couldn't pass it up! And I didn't realize it had a reverse feature all this time, even better than I bargained for!

      Highly recommended!

      Wouldn't do a 3 hour job with one battery. You really need a power supply for this one our you'll go broke paying for batteries. Unit performed well and added NO noise.

      Comments about DigiTech DigiDelay Digital Delay Pedal:

      It's a great pedal. It's basically a stripped down version of the Hardwire DL-8. Limited memory with only the 4 Second loop time, but if you're not into that, it's a great delay. The single pedal Tap Tempo integration is great too. The best design I've seen on a single pedal delay.

      This delay pedal has a nice set of delays and is easy to use. The built-in 4-second looped is handy for building phrases. Plan to use an AC supply because a 9V battery won't last long.

              I use this in conjunction w/a Boss DD-6 for multiple pre-set delays as well as the different tones between the two. This one has a very 80's tone & vibe for all those great songs of that era. Sounds great!
