boss-dd6 (dd-3 even, if youre not picky about extra options), or the line 6 DL4 (might be a bit more expensive i think)

the boss dd-3 or dd-6, it all depends on how much delay you want. you could probly get a used giga delay for that price

does anyone know which delay pedal Tom Delonge uses for "The Adventure" by Angels and Airwaves?


Honestly no i dont But im sure if you check the site his gear is probably listed. But in actuality you could use any of the for mentioned delays and be fine as they are all pretty good and could handle the job you are intedning it for. Though my personal favorite is the Boss DD-3

As i see in your sig you seem to be a fan of Digitech so i say to follow suit just get the digidelay i dont consider it to be as good as The Boss pedals but its cheaper and still pretty decent.

just a question. with any of the boss pedals are you able to create spaceship sounds? (fans of yngwie malmsteen will know what i'm talking about) i know with one of the ibanez tone-lok pedals when you crank the pedal all the way you get the crazy self oscilating sounds that sound like flying saucers.

ya if your selling your pedals i suggest the Boss DD-3 my fav.

And as for the Spaceship thing dude i have no idea good luck with that

EDIT i did some quick research and came up with this he uses a synth processor so that explains his weird sounds

i have a DD-6 and can get pretty good spacey stuff
i set my reverb up high, put the delay on max on the 300ms setting, some overdrive, add a phaser if you really want to.
alot of the spacey sounds have to do with picking style
doing staccatto notes to accentuate the delay and doing stuff like pick scrapes.

just mess around with it

bends, scrapes behind the nut, bends behind the nut, if you can get a volume pedal, you could use that too for dynamics and stuff

if you get a decent delay like a DD-3 or DD-6, you should be fine


and mine doesnt color my sound too much

Go with a Line 6 DL-4. You could probably get the same delay an on top of that, it's easily the best delay pedal out there right now. 16 different delays and a 14 second loop feature. If you wanna save some money, go with a Boss DD-6. But if you spend the extra $50 on the DL-4, you will NOT regret it. It comes complete with filter effects and if you set the delay time on zero with the filter on, you can get some shallow filter effects.

Boss dd-6 or digitech digi delay.

the only thing i dislike about the DD-6 is how long it takes to turn it on and off if you want to use tap tempo.
you have to hold for 3 seconds to turn it on, and then 3 seconds to turn it off. makes it a pain if youve got parts of a song with delay and parts with out

if you want the DD-6, get the digidelay, it's the EXACT same thing but a lot cheaper. they're practically identical except the digidelay is wired better.
