I NEED YOUR HELP!
I can't decide if i want DD-7, or Carbon copy.
I'd like to be able to play songs like big sur moon, the echo song, and I'd like to have a delay to just make my tone sound "fuller". I can get the delay on my solid state practice amp, and I can achieve nearly the same sound on my tube amp, all i'm missing is the echo. ):

I really like the Carbon Copy, but the DD-7 will give a lot more options.
I have a huge fear if rays.

You can get delay but not echo? I'm confused. I'd go DD-3 over both of those.

Hey, I have a DD-7 and it's great (one of the few BOSS pedals I like). I use the loop feature alot and it overall is a great pedal. I think I have a short clip on my profile of it. I haven't played the carbon copy although I've been thinking about getting one in the future. DD-7 is an overall great pedal though.

Carbon Copy! Its Analog


Which doesn't automatically make it better. And I don't really like the Carbon Copy.

I meant that I get delay on my practice amp, but not on my Crate V33 tube amp.

I have a DD-7 it's good, and has a decent analog model delay on it. plus the looping is awesome.

Can you do the oscillations like the carbon copy can do ?

So much fail in this thread. The DD7 is the clear winner here because TS would need tap tempo to play the echo song. Analog is not necessarily better than digital, people.

+1 Dr. Pain. I have not noticed much tone loss if any at all. The analog feature is quite good and the more delay time is also nice to have. If you want a more versatile delay, definitely the DD-7

Awesome! Thanks so much guys! I know i'll be getting the DD-7 now. Also the loop feature sounds sweet! Can jam alone ! All I gotta do is get the rest of the cash... got about $80 right now.

The Boss's buffer isn't as bad as everyone makes it out to be. It keeps your signal strong and crisp.

Get one used. Pedals are so overpriced it's absurd.

yeah by using chinese chips - which the new, super cheap memory boy/toy use

Have they released pricing on those yet? I couldn't find it on their site. I want something to compliment my DD-3, a little washier, and more subtle. I'd like to have one delay on the board for reverby, subtle delays, and one for over the top slapbacks... Suggestions?

I use the DD-6, its a great pedal, it does everything the DD-7 does, except for the looper time being less, and the lack of an external tap tempo. The DD-6 has a looper but its pretty worthless, its only like 6 seconds, and it also has a tap tempo but it is built in. 65 dollars is a good price.

I've owned both pedals, but I currently only own the DD-7.

THe Carbon Copy is a fantastic pedal. I couldn't believe the quality of the delay. The only problem is it's not very versatile.

If you need anything other than that short, natural, analogue delay, you're out of luck with the Carbon Copy. The DD-7, however, does have an analogue delay modeler, which sounds decent enough to get you by if you really need that.

Get a Nova repeater or a Hardwire Delay.

Yes you can, it has instructions in the booklet for a setting that can accomplish that.

I own a DD-7...I'm completely happy with it. Wouldn't think about buying another delay unless I were to put together a second pedalboard altogether with just a handful of true-bypass pedals like a Memory Man or CC, Fuzz Face, and Wah (for David Gilmour's Live In Pompeii tone w00t...I love to dream).
