Description

Arriving soon…

In excellent condition, with original rack ears. Vintage Digital Delay from Boss / Roland. A partner to the wonderful CE-300 Super Chorus, the DE-200 Digital Delay is a characterful early-digital device similar to the Lexicon PCM-41, and Deltalab Effectron

The DE-200 has the typical X2 button which doubles delay time at the expense of bandwidth. This sounds like a bad idea but, in practice, the resulting low-pass filtering sounds great and is a key part of the attraction of these early digital units. Like the Effectron, the DE-200 has a sampling feature which will loop a section of audio

The DE-200 will go into oscillation at maximum feedback, giving the opportunity for great dub effects. It’s a a bit of a sleeper, the DE-200 – quite rare in the UK, it sounds awesome

“Boss DE-200..is it me, or is this the best delay ever?”

“The delay time fine knob, as well as the modulation rate and depth knobs, can all be time-warped and adjusted smoothly without any “stepping” at all.. “

“I love the ability to hold a delay and take the loop speed way down to create a crunchy ambient background. The 2X button is awesome too. I thought I was the only one that loved this unit”

“In the chain, coming before it is the Boss CE-300. These units look super good together. They sound tremendous together. The only thing, and I hope I’m missing something, is the fact that I want to hear the chorus in stereo and then have that sound delayed by this beautiful unit but it is mono. The CE-300 still adds an amazing glaze to the signal in mono but I want to hear it in stereo with that delay”

In very good, vintage condition with minor case marks. Photos to follow
