BOSS DM-2 Delay

DM-2 Delay

Ever since being discontinued way back in 1984, the BOSS DM-2 Delay pedal has remained highly sought after by players everywhere for its warm, โ€œbucket brigadeโ€ analog delay tone.

Style

The DM-2 seems to work best suited for rock and blues however it would work very well for other genres too. This is because of the warm natural sound which can be desirable anywhere a crisp digital delay is too much.

Being a BOSS pedal you already know how it looks. The plum red color is very distinct making it easy to spot on any pedalboard.

DM-2 Features

The DM-2 doesn’t just delay, like most analog delays it:

  • feature 1 – act as a warm reverb with the delay time very low
  • feature 2 – add a little more delay time for doubling & slap-back effects
  • feature 3 – The coveted stomp uses 100-per cent analog circuitry with lush sound and a 20-300 ms delay range.

Vintage/Modern/contemporary

The main fx heritage of the DM-2 is the amount of use it received in the 80s. The pedal was so popular that BOSS re-released it as the DM-2W Waza craft edition. This new version has extra features and can be found on TonePedia.com

Used by Dave Grohl, John Frusciante, Kurt Cobain, Joe Satriani, Cliff Burton, Prince, Mike McCready, Gary Moore, Beck, John 5 and many more.
