"Warm, inviting analog sound!"

After years of searching, I finally found one of these Boss Analog Delay pedals! While Boss's digital delay is it's more popular cousin, I find myself going back for the analog tones quite a bit. This pedal is one of the best Boss has ever made and it's easy to see why.
It has a 1/4" connection and an input for a power supply. It's an analog pedal and can't really be controlled with any computer or MIDI devices. It's also not rackable as it's a foot pedal.


This pedal is really easy to use, as I've found most of the great classic pedals are. This one has some interesting controls for a delay, I haven't really seen them on any of Boss's digital counterparts, but it's still pretty easy once you get the hang of it. There are three knobs for repeat, intensity, and echo. While the terms are unfamiliar the basic function will make itself obvious to anyone who uses it for more than a minute. Thus the need for a manual is pretty minimal, I didn't have one and I had no problems using it.


This is one of the best sounding delays I've used. I love how warm it is compared with the DD-2's iciness. That being said it doesn't muddy up the signal too much like other analog delays I've used. It in fact tends to make lead lines clearer and more prominent when jamming with a full band, which is one of the reasons I really wanted to get it. It can do anything from a mild support of tone to a full on spacey, trippy sound like Pink Floyd, or even My Bloody Valentine if you've got enough distortion. It's really pretty versatile and never annoying like the sometimes overbearing digital delay that Boss makes.


This is a pretty awesome analog delay. It's really not cut out for anything crazy, so if you're looking for crazy noise effects or spaceship sounds, this is probably not the best one for you. You can get some mild wackiness out of it but overall it's more straight forward. That being said, the tone is phenomenal and it really complements your sounds nicely. It's not easy to find an original copy of this nowadays, I happened to find one at a used music shop for a decent price but I don't think most people will have such luck. If you can find one of these and can afford it, by all means, get it! Even if you don't like it you'll probably find someone who will and will pay good money for it!
