OVERVIEW

Perfection in a compact digital delay.

Just what is so great about the Guyatone MD-3? Quite simply, the Micro Digital Delay Pedal offers the most authentic note reproduction of any delay device available, period. Notes come back exactly as you played them: Not rounder, harsher, warmer, colder, or altered in any manner whatsoever. If you've ever played a tape echo, you know that their tone is not dark sounding like some people claim, but actually quite bright and clear. The MD-3 gives the user the crispness and clarity of a tape echo combined with the longer delay time of a digital device, while its controls react like an analog unit. 30-2600 milliseconds of delay time are available; more than enough to create an entire range of classic delay effects from rockabilly slapback to arena-rock washes of excess and everything in between. At higher feedback setting (above 3 o'clock) the MD-3 will self-oscillate like an analog delay, creating cacophonous cascades of repeats, UFO-landings, ray guns, and other bizarre sound effects. At lower feedback settings (around 2 o'clock) the MD-3 digital effects pedal can be used for multi-layering of short parts, creating beautiful, ethereal soundscapes that slowly fade into infinity. In addition, the MD-3 Delay has a lower current draw than other digital units, which means you'll spend less time changing batteries and more time playing!

I love this delay. I've been playing for close to 20 years and this is by far the best I've every used. I've had it for a couple of years now. It's so versatile. Slap backs, dotted eighths, long delays - you can do pretty much anything with this pedal. Sounds amazing in an effects loop, as well as in front of an amp (I'm playing through a Fender Super-Sonic). I only wish there was a MD3+ or something like that with a tap tempo feature. I'm actually seriously considering getting a second one to set two different delay times. Only thing negative is that mines eats batteries, but it's now on a powered pedalboard, so that's not an issue. And, it's got a tiny footprint. Buy this delay if you're in the market for one.

This pedal generates an unacceptable level of noise even when used with a regulated power supply. Some people say it's not the pedal's fault and one should check the power supply he/she uses with it. I tried it with two different pro level regulated adaptors. The pedal is useless. Please note that the noise is not on the dry signal. It appears only on the delayed signal which supports further the fact that the processing circuit of the pedal is responsible for the noise. Rubber band to hold the bottom together and other "innovative" design features make this pedal the ultimate p.o.s.I have exchanged my MD-3 already for a real delay pedal.

Perfect Size

By DBean

from Artesia, NM

This pedal is the perfect size for any pedal board. It is small yall! Very small, but the sound is really good. To me it is a perfect delay. It does not have an over powering sound, more of a soft accent. I love it!!!!

Poorly built horrible sounding pedal

By Nawlins Picker

from New Orleans

First of all, this pedal is VERY SMALL, the knobs are flimsy, the jacks are plastic, the stomp switch is flimsy, and the sound is grittingly icy and treble-yFurthermore, the bottom is held on with a RUBBER BAND, I am NOT kidding, A RUBBER BAND !!!SAve your money and get a better brand of pedal. This one is a MUST AVOID. The people giving this thing a good review obviously don't gig, and don't know what good pedals look and sound like.

Transparent and Pristine

By Ozzie G

from Oregon

I had one of these little units and loved it. I play a Strat with sweet pickups, and it was a perfect match for this pedal. I like how the basic tonality of the guitar is not altered...very transparent, pristine delay.Love the self-oscillating feature. I've turned a few heads goofing around with it. Nice range of delay times, too.Definitely get a power unit to plug this thing in...goes thru batteries quickly and not much fun to change. I will rebuild my pedal board soon, and one of these will be on it. I love the small footprint, too. It's a sturdy little bugger, too.A point off for no tap tempo function, but love the transparency of the sound.

exactly what it says!

By Hollywood

from Austin

extremely compact, simple to use, very crisp digital sound (if you want warm analog this isn't for you)adds some noise to the signal, but nothing major. rated a 4 for features because there is no tap tempo feature and because the delay feedbacks stop once you stomp the pedal off. some of the boss delays fade out the remaining notes which is my preference. im 50/50 on whether i would buy the pedal again, simply because of the features

OK

No bells and whistles. But it is small and felt solid. I have the Guyatone trem that I've used for about a year w/ no issues. This pedal was ok. Nothing special but when you kicked it in it would let out whatever was stored in the ram which kinda stinks. Quiet and fairly priced. Just not my thing.

A small Godsend

By x_bruce

from Chicago, IL

Although digital, the Guyatone MD3 delay is warm and designed to act like a vintage delay. It is competitive with everything in and well beyond its price-range.Right now it takes up a tiny amount of space on my pedal rack but has also been taped to my guitar strap.Its not an Eventide or t.c. electronic device, but it's nowhere near the cost whilst still doing a fine job. In a lot of ways it reminds me of an Electro-Harmonix product except cleaner and built better.I'm not sure why some people have been dealing with shoddy workmanship, but the two I own never have caused a lick of trouble and have great battery life.

I love it

By Cottonwoody

from Portland, OR

This pedal supplies a great deal of quality delay. There are plenty of settings and shtuff to mess around with. Sound quality is great unless you use really long repeating delays. After about 8 or 9 if the feedback is turned all the way up (note that) it will begin to sound distorted, but if the feedback is at 9 o'clock or less the sound quality is very good. I love it. It's small and it fit right into my pedal board. Makes no noise if used with a One Spot. I have my daisy chain full and I hear no noise of any kind. I would definitely recommend it.

Not for serious players, overpriced.

By Vince-MtP_e

from Albany, NY

I needed a simple delay pedal that would sit on top of my amp so I could run it thru the fx loop. I'd always have it on and use it to add a bit of dimension to my sound. The first time I used it a brand new Duracell only lasted about an hour or two. The battery does not fit in the casing properly, and the rubber ring is a tedious joke to get back on. When iot's working, this delay sounds terrific. I didn't bother with a power supply, it's just too inconvenient. I'm returning this for something more standardized and reliable. I expect the battery to last at least 4 or 5 hours, otherwise there's not much point in using a battery at all.
