  • TC Electronics Flashback Delay After BOSS DD-7

    I bought BOSS DD-7 from Internet.

    I've been using it for a while. I think there is nothing special about this pedal. It exactly copy the sounds and replay with delay. The delay sound doesn't have some ambient quality at all.

    Flashback sounds like there is reverb with delays or and it has some kind of ambient quality.

    Actually the person who sold me this pedal had both pedals and he chose Flashback to keep.

    What do you think should I sell it and buy a Flashback?

    Probably sell it.

    Should have got the Boss RV3, it does reverb & delay together or individually.

    The Flashback does not do reverb+delay, it does do variety of modulation (vib/chorus/flange) delay stuff though.

      Well, that's typically what digital delays do - clean repeats with no degradation - so if it's not doing it for you, sell it! The TC has some great emulations, and very flexible too.

        i like to have two delays on my board. one digital with nice clean repeats like the boss and one analog with some modulation like a boss dm2 or ibanez ad9

          If you don't tell us what use you have in mind it's difficult to recommend. We're just going to tell you whatever we personally like which might not be what you need.

          They are both digital delays that have some analog emulation modes. The Flashback is more flexible in theory thanks to toneprints but they are quite similar.

          Like Jeremy and others, I have two delays: an analog one (DMM) and a digital (flashback mini but could have bought a dd7).

            I have a flashback. It's essentially a modeling unit. To my ears, the analog setting is quite distinct from the digital one. I like it. And if you don't, they fetch a decent price on the second-hand market.
