About This Listing

Here is a used (with visible cosmetic wear - but it works fine) Boss DD-3 Digital Delay, DD-3(A).

NOTE: Based on REVERB'S condition criteria - I put its condition as GOOD (instead of Fair). This is because the cosmetic wear does NO affect the performance of this pedal). But using one's own condition criteria - some people might feel that the condition is Fair or in between Fair and Good.

NOTE: The DD-3 pedal for sale in this listing is made in 1994 (Blue Label Taiwan) and it is also referred to as DD-3 version 2A.  

Entered Serial: EG01483
Your pedal was made in Mar, 1994 (March 1994)
