BOSS DM-2 Analog Delay Pedal Review

BOSS DM-2 Analog Delay Pedal Review

This video demo is for the BOSS DM-2 Analog Delay Pedal.  This retro/discontinued pedal is made in Japan is highly sought after by many guitar players due to it’s warm and wonderful sounds.  My first impression of this pedal was “how good can it be?”. I am not sure why I didn’t give it the benefit of the doubt, but it’s probably because I am so happy with the BOSS DD-7 that I didn’t think that the BOSS DM-2 would live up to it’s newer counterpart.  Although the DD-7 is a Digital pedal, it also has an analog delay setting that is usable and musical but to be honest falls short compared to the BOSS DM-2.  This pedal commands high dollars on eBay these days and if you’re lucky enough to have one, hold onto it.  I’m sure there’s a bunch of analog delay pedals that are just as good, but there’s not many that does what the DM-2 does and so easily.

While the newer DD-7 does a great job on the Analog setting, the DM-2 is a no-frills approach to a simple pedal, with zero hiss or crackle/noise in the circuit, so guitar nerds will enjoy the noise free goodness and warm analog settings that is so highly sought after.

These are definetely worth checking out but don’t pay too much for it – as I mentioned they are selling for a lot of money on eBay.

(4.8 / 5)
I give the BOSS FRV-1 Reverb pedal a 4.8/5
This is a fantastic pedal from Boss in conjunction with Fender.  It’s by far the best Reverb pedal I have had a chance to use over the years.  If you’re into your Fender Reverb sound, this is as good as it gets in a nice, small and compact package.
