"Yesterday I was in a real bind. I needed a Yamaha PA30 for my company's soundboard for this Memorial Day weekend. I called and talked to a very professional as well as friendly sales rep, he not only took the order but asked me to let him call me back so he could research and make sure he was sending me the right item. He called me back within 15 minutes, informed me he had the part verified and in stock and would rush to get the order in so as to make the next day delivery. He even said he "would love to chat but really have to get on this so it will be shipped out today". He did just that with just minutes to spare. It arrived 10 minutes ago." - Donny, MO
"The shipping was excellent, driver was very courteous, and there was no damage to the packages. The keyboard was received in time for us to use in a wedding and 20 shows in the next few weeks. If we need any other equipment, the purchase will be made from you. Thanks for all your help." - Genny, GA
The rack-mounted SDD-3000 which appeared in 1982 was a classic digital delay that dominated the world thanks to its peerless sonic character. The classic delay effect that s central to the guitar sounds in world-class rock bands owe a great deal to the SDD-3000, which has been the driving force behind numerous famous songs over the years.
Eight different delay types give you a wide range of variety
At the core of your sound-shaping, you can choose from a total of eight delay types. In addition to the original SDD-3000 delay, there's also analog delay modeling that provides the warmth of a BBD device, a TAPE model that reproduces a tape echo, the clean MODERN delay sound, the fantasy-like KOSMIC delay which adds pitch change to the reverb sound, REVERSE which plays the delay sound backward, PITCH, which places a pitch shifter placed before the delay, and PANNING which controls the stereo position of the output. A wide range of delay effects can be produced with this single unit. In addition, there's a ducking function that lets you apply delay only when the input is at a low level.
A faithful replication of the original SDD-3000's preamp
The SDD-3000's premp was one of the most important factors in cementing its status as a legendary effect unit. The thick, present sound that distinguished the SDD-3000 was a decisive aspect of its character. Many musicians even used the SDD-3000 in a bypassed state simply as a preamp in order to obtain this effect. It goes without saying that the SDD-3000 PEDAL faithfully replicates this preamp. Ample gain and headroom are maintained, and input/output attenuators are also provided. This lets you set the input/output levels optimally when using this unit, meaning that in addition to guitar, you can use it with a variety of instruments including analog synthesizers, keyboards, and vintage effects, and be confident that the SDD-3000 PEDAL's potential will be maximized for any audio source.
Two bypass modes to suit your needs
For the bypassed sound, you can choose either the direct sound that has been routed through the cherished preamp circuit and adjusted by the gain setting to an appropriate level, or you can choose a true bypass sound where relay switches connect the signal lines directly without passing the signal through any electronic circuitry whatsoever, thus ensuring that the unit does not affect the sound in any way.
A filter circuit that modifies the feedback sound
A low-cut/high-cut filter can be applied to each delay repeat, allowing a range of effects from a natural softening to a harder emphasis. By using the inverter to reverse the phase of the delay sound, you can also obtain flanging effects.
Five types of modulation waveforms to shape various delay parameters
One of the characteristics of the SDD-3000 was its modulation capability. This function dramatically expands the range of delay sounds, giving you even more expressive power. The SDD-3000 PEDAL gives you a choice of five new waveforms, allowing you to generate complex sounds such as chorus, vibrato, doubling, wow/flutter, and Doppler effects, giving this unit a variety of possibilities that go beyond the bounds of existing delay effect units.
Sync mode lets you specify the delay time as a note value
In addition to using the tap function to set the delay time intuitively, you can use the Sync mode to specify the setting in terms of a note value. You can choose from 11 note values ranging from whole notes to 32nd notes, making it easy to set up those signature sounds of world-class rock bands known for their delay sounds, such as a rhythmic "dotted eighth note" delay.
LCR function lets you obtain multi-tap delay effects at a single touch
The LCR function provides right, center, left, and feedback settings that can be set independently, letting you obtain multi-tap delay effects instantly.
A total of 80 programs (40 banks x 2 channels) can be saved
A total of 80 different delay sounds that you've created on the SDD-3000 PEDAL can be saved as programs. It comes from the factory with 40 stage-ready programs already housed in the internal memory, ranging from standard delays to more unique types, as well as song presets that recreate the delay sounds used in famous songs.
Use an optional expression pedal to enhance your performance
By using an optional expression pedal, you can easily control various parameters of the delay with your foot. You'll be able to control multiple parameters simultaneously, so that even complex delay effects can be obtained effortlessly.
