    Anyone had a chance to try the new Boss DD-6 delay? Supposedly it has built in tap tempo and delay times of up to 5.2 seconds. How's the quality? I like the compact size.

    I am looking for another delay to replace my DOD DFX9, preferably something small (to fit on my pedalboard) and with built in tap tempo. Wonder if the DD-6 is the answer.

    I don't have any experience with the DD-6, but I have used Boss delay pedals (in my guitar rigs - I haven't wanted a delay in my bass rig yet), and I think they're great! IMO, you would have to go rackmount to get anything better, and in a live situation, you probably couldn't tell the difference.

    if it sounds like the dd5 i used to have, i'm guess it'll be a very nice delay. the dd6 also features sound on sound overdubbing and a reverse mode where you can kill the direct signal. i hear the tap tempo is cumbersome because you've got to hold down on the pedal for two seconds, then tap out the tempo.
