So, Christmas is coming up and I've been looking into delay pedals to ask for.
I've got it down to either the DD-7 or DD-6.
I've used both and can't find that much of a difference in them sound-wise.

I'd be using a delay mostly just to 'fatten' up my sound,
and occasionally to do like a 'double-picking' thing.
Suggestions?

dd-7 has a better a loop, reverse delay, and a wider delay range. if you dont need those things, go with the dd-6

sir, i would like to inform you that you are now my favorite UGer. Not only did you use the word y'all, which is native to my homeland, but you correctly punctuated it using the apostrophe.

I'd get the DD-7 over the 6 simply because it has more features at a very similar price.

Also, delicious tap tempo, which you can't get with an analog delay such as the MXR Carbon Copy or EHX Memory Man.

Did you look at the Line-6 Echo Park? It's got a lot of extra features if you're interested (different delay rhythms, reverse).

If you're sure you want a DD-7 or DD-6, it really depends what you want. If you're wanting huge time delays, DD-7 all the way. If you don't need as much, and won't use the extra features, then the DD-6 is worth every penny.

Okay, so the DD-6 is supposedly better for shorter delays?
That's what I'd need more.
And I'd prefer having a tap tempo, so no Carbon Copy.

I use my dd-6 all the time, never failed on me.

Basically the 7 is the 6 with an analog model and some extended times and such.

The DD-7 has 40 seconds of "hold" time whereas the DD-6 has 5.2.

To engage the DD-6's tap tempo, you first have to hold down the pedal for 2 seconds and then tap. The DD-7 let's you tap right away, even in bypass.

Those are the two main advantages.

So is the DD-6 better for short delay?
Or is it the same and the 7 has better long delay?

Carbon Copy.


Noo!! the Carbon Copy is worth the money, but it doesn't give you a tap tempo. You can find something way better for a little more. There so much hype about it.

The DD-6, DD-7, DD-20, and my favorite the Eventide TimeFactor.

If you want high-end stuff go with the DD-20 or the TimeFactor. The DD-7 to play it safe altogether. The DD-6 for the best bang for the buck.

Yeah, I was considering the DD-20 but its a little expensive and I don't think I really need all of its features.
The DD-6 and 7 are the same price everywhere I look, so I'm still trying to find out if one is better than the other :/

yeah, i'm also trying to decide between mxr carbon copy, dd3, dd6 and dd7. i really need to get into the local gc and try them out.


My mind is going. I can feel it.

i like the DD-7 a little more than the 6 because you can plug an external footswitch into it for tap tempo stuff, which i think is very handy.
