DeltaLab's DD1 Digital Delay is a pedal for electric guitar or other electronic instruments. I've used the pedal with electric guitar, so that's the application I'll be focusing on here in this review. As far as basic characteristics go, the pedal has a 1/4" input and two 1/4" outputs for using the pedal in stereo if you so choose. The pedal is of course a digital one as stated by the name, and requires power from either a nine volt battery or power supply. It's also got true bypass and isn't rack mountable in any way.


The make up of the DeltaLab DD1 Digital Delay is really about as simple as you can make it. The pedal simply has three knobs for parameters that control time, the number of repeats, and effect level. There's also a button to turn the pedal on and off, but that's really everything you need to know about the pedal in terms of utilization. For this reason, a manual shouldn't be necessary.


While not the most impressive sounding digital delay pedal, the overall sound of the DeltaLab DD1 Digital Delay is really quite clean. There aren't all that much different sounds you can get with this pedal when compared to some of the other digital delay pedals, but it's certainly got an adequate amount of tones here. Of course it won't match the sound of an analog delay pedal, but no digital delay really will. Keeping this in mind, the DD1 is a very solid sounding delay pedal.


For the price, the DeltaLab DD1 Digital Delay is one of the best delay pedals I've used. To me, it's the perfect delay pedal for the player looking to just started with delay without spending much money at all. Don't be fooled however, as this isn't a toy and is definitely a legitimate delay pedal. If you're looking to get some serious bang for your buck, stop the buck here and check out the DD1.
