Show full description »

There are some great delay pedals out there, but Boss created the DD-500 to be the daddy of them all. Boss considers this the most powerful and versatile delay available, and who'd disagree? Packed with tons of features and 12 different delay modes, the DD500 offers everything you may wish from a delay, and then some!

From basic echo to dead-on emulations of classic delays to incredibly lush spatial textures that take your breath away, the DD-500 will launch your music places you never thought possible.

Main Features:

  • Studio-level stereo sound with 32-bit/96 kHz processing throughout
  • 12 versatile delay modes from vintage to modern deliver unlimited creative possibilities
  • Unrivaled real-time expression with customizable control settings for onboard and external switches
  • Graphic LCD for easy, intuitive operation while performing and editing
  • Onboard patch memories and hands-on controls
  • Equipped with a built-in Phrase Looper, MIDI, USB, and more
  • Selectable buffered or true-bypass operation
  • Runs on four AA-size batteries or PSA-series AC adapter

Twelve Versatile Delay Modes and Deep Editing Options

With the DD-500’s 12 delay modes, you can create any delay sound you can imagine, and then some. Everything you need is here, from warm, gritty vintage delays and tape echo to complex modern delay lines that employ pitch shifting, filtering, and other unique processing. With the hands-on knobs, it’s easy to shape essential parameters and create great sounds immediately. Each delay type also includes a semi-parametric four-band EQ, modulation, ducking, and many other parameters, allowing you to dive deep and refine tones with maximum precision.

Unparalleled Sound Quality

In the DD-500, every 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. And while the DD-500’s delay effects are high-end digital, your straight guitar tone remains 100-percent analog at all times, with your choice of buffered or true-bypass operation. In addition to strengthening the analog dry signal, buffered bypass has the added benefit of enabling carryover, so delay trails are not cut off unnaturally when the effect is switched off.

Advanced Features for Stage and Studio Use

In the world of sophisticated delay stomps, the DD-500 stands alone in practical usability. The large, integrated LCD fully supports the pedal’s immense capabilities, giving you clear visibility of delay time, patch ID, and more on one screen, plus sane navigation for detailed parameter tweaks, naming, and system management. And via USB, it’s simple to connect to your computer for patch backup and MIDI control with your favorite DAW.

Intensive Real-Time Control

With its freely assignable controls, the DD-500 delivers unmatched creative expression and performance flexibility. By default, the A, B, and TAP/CTL switches offer intuitive control for two patches, bypass, bank selection, tap tempo, and more. However, they can be customized to operate in alternate ways, such as providing top-level access to three different delay patches, or allowing you to use two patches at once for layered delay sounds. Instead of tap tempo, you’re able to assign the TAP/CTL switch to various real-time functions like Warp or Twist for a wide range of expressive effects. Even more parameters can be manipulated via an optional expression pedal or external switches, and MIDI I/O opens up many additional control options with advanced setups.

DD-500 Delay Modes

  • Standard—Clear digital delay.
  • Analog—Emulates classic analog “BBD” delays like the BOSS DM series.
  • Tape—Emulates the warm sound of tape-based delay units, including the Maestro Echoplex and legendary Roland RE-201 Space Echo.
  • Vintage Digital—Emulations of early digital delays from the 1980s, including Roland’s famous SDE-2000 and SDE-3000 rack units and the BOSS DD-2, the original stompbox digital delay.
  • Dual—Two different delay lines that can be connected in series or parallel.
  • Pattern—Sixteen different delay lines that can be set independently for all types of unique rhythmic effects.
  • Reverse—Backwards delay for cool psychedelic effects and other unique tones.
  • SFX—“Special effects” delay with a highly unique sound character.
  • Shimmer—Pitch-shifted delays for lush, heavenly textures.
  • Filter—Delay with a sweeping filter.
  • Slow Attack—Ethereal delays that fade in with playing dynamics.
  • Tera Echo—Spacious, animated ambience effect derived from the innovative BOSS TE-2 pedal.

DD-500 Assignable Control Functions

The following functions can be assigned to the DD-500’s onboard TAP/CTL switch and/or optional external footswitches. These assignments are stored as part of a patch.

  • Tap—Set the delay in time with a song’s tempo.
  • Hold—The delay’s feedback is held continuously while the switch is pressed.
  • Warp—Increases the delay’s feedback and level simultaneously for powerful expressive effects.
  • Twist—Adjusts multiple delay parameters with a single press, creating wild sounds similar to twisting the panel knobs in real time.
  • Moment—Outputs the delay sound only when you hold down the switch.
  • Roll 1/2—Cuts the delay time to 1/2 of the current setting when you hold down the switch.
  • Roll 1/4—Cuts the delay time to 1/4 of the current setting when you hold down the switch.
  • Roll 1/8—Cuts the delay time to 1/8 of the current setting when you hold down the switch.
  • Fade In—Fades in the delay sound.
  • Fade Out—Fades out the delay sound.
  • Assign 1-8—Allows you to assign and control up to eight different delay parameters at once.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
