I need a cheap good souding digital delay for my small pedalboard that is going to replace my Nova System (already sold). I already have a GE-7 with Monte Allums mods for a little EQ and boost and a RV-7 for some Hall Lexicon reverbs - the delay will be the last item on the pedalboard.
I don't care much for analog settings and I will use this pedal in a digital setting it for adding space to reverb à la Rosenwinkel / Kreisberg / etc... I will go the used route - so Boss is the only option (otherwise TC Flashback and HW DL-8 would be my options; in fact I have the Flashback in the big pedalboard and love it).
I have three options:
1) DD-3 Japan for 80€ (he wasn't sure if a friend would kepp the pedal)
2) DD-5 for 75€
3) DD-7 for 90€
Anyone has experience with all these pedals? The DD-3 fits the bill nicely but I am affraid of the 800ms limitations for some possible other uses in the future. The DD-7 does a lot more than the DD-5 for more 15e but I would just use the expression pedal function (and I have read about the DD-5 souding better). I know Kreisberg used the DD-3, Lage Lund the DD-5 and Gilad Hekselman the DD-7 so they all should fit the bill nicely but I would like to make the best purchase.
All opinions are welcome, thanks in advanced!
