Released in 2002, the DD-6 expanded on Boss' popular line of Digital Delay pedals by offering the first true stereo delay and panning effects. In addition to the way-cool stereo features, the DD-6 also has built-in Tap Tempo, so you don't need a remote FS-5U pedal as with the DD-5. It has a total delay/hold time of just over 5 seconds (5,200 ms). With built-in subdivisions of delay time, it's really easy to dial in the right delay sound, too. Plus, it has a trippy Reverse delay mode, and it was the first Boss pedal to offer the wicked "Warp" mode which creates ethereal delay effects on the fly.
Starting with the DD-3, Boss' line of Digital Delay pedals have been popular because they are reliable and easy to use, and they produce clean, musical delay effects. The DD-6 is loaded with features, so it gives you a ton of versatility. If you've never delved into the world of delay, the DD-6 has plenty of sounds to whet your appetite. For some, it can be a cost-effective foray into discovering new sounds, but for many, the DD-6 may be all the delay you ever need.
This 2003 Boss DD-6 is pretty dang clean. There are a few scuffs on the input side of the enclosure (see photos), so we're going to call it "Very Good" instead of "Excellent." It functions 100% as it should, and unfortunately it doesn't include the box or any paperwork.
