    If so, what are your thoughts?
  2. I am interested in hearing anything about this pedal too. I would like to have a delay pedal to play around with, but for now I really can't justify dropping over $100 on one.

    the behringer says it delays up to 1.8 secs, how does that rate against the dd3/5/6?
  3. Haven't yet tried one, but I will be buying one at some point.

    The Behringer Delay (1800ms) sits in front of the DD-3 (800ms) and just behind the DD-5 (2000ms) and DD-6 (2600ms)

    Yup.. I had one. It worked fine for messin with around the house, a little harsh sounding for a gig.

    I ended up getting a digidelay.

    My Guitarist has one. It sounds OK but it's nothing special. I wouldn't exactly class it as gig worthy, anyway.

    You buy a really cheap effect, it'll come back to bite you in the ass when you least expect it.

    I bought it specifically for the harshness, but it broke in less than an hour. I bought another one, and it was already broke when I got it. That was the end of my quest.

    One Behringer pedal down:rolleyes:....

    100 more to go!:D
  9. Get a DD3. Simple to use and good quality.
  10. A used digidelay is also a good choice.
  11. The one i borrowed worked ok for guitar. But on bass it was a miserable failure of the highest order. After a few minutes of mucking around it would just repeat a bell like pattern loudly that had nothing to do with any of the settings it was set to and the only way to stop it would to unplug it. Then if i re-plugged it back in within a few minutes of this problem - it would start making this sound immediately BEFORE I HAD EVEN PLUCKED A STRING.

    I eventually bought myself a DD20 and couldn't be happier. I recommend the boss DD's for digital delay.

    I have a Behringer Digital Delay and I find it a really clean sounding quality Pedal.

    OK it is in a plastic case and does need to be treated a little bit gently (unlike the Metal clad Boss pedals) but for a solid state pedal, for under £20! really is a good deal!
  13. I had a Behringer delay DD-100. At the beginning I was ok with it, but increasingly I had noise issues, untill they were untolerable. on/of, didn't matter, the pedal was very very noise. Also the hold function never really worked. I upgraded to a DD-20, but there are some boss clones which are just a tad more expensive and a lot better quality than the behringer delay.

    I must add though that I do have also a behringer bass chorus and bass overdrive, and while they are no where nere great, they do the job ok, considering the price.

    How do you mean "least"? I sit and wait for my cheap ones to break (w00t for redundancy on the board) and am pleasantly surprised when they don't. That said, I'm not gonna touch a Behringer with a twelve-foot pole.

    I don't remember how much delay time is on the DD-3, but the DD-6 gets up to 5.2 sec and the DD-20 gets 20-something I think.
