Don't make a Lyre out of me!

Yes, it's yet another bad pun from the YAMS webmaster - all to point out that YAMS carries a good selection of lyres for all sorts of band instruments. I know - those things are most needed during marching band season, but Fall will be here before you know it! Go ahead and get ahead of the game - pick up your lyre before the band director finds out you don't have one!

Swing by and check out our Lyre selection - and you'll see I'm not lyin'!

(Sorry, I just couldn't help myself).

Come check out the DD-7 delay pedal at YAMS! 


The Next Step in Compact Delay

Even with the best-selling delays in compact-pedal history, BOSS continues to push the envelope and innovate. The new DD-7 takes the best features from its predecessors and expands the creative potential with Modulation Delay mode, classic modeled Analog Delay mode, External pedal control options, longer delay time, and more.

  • Expanded delay time, up to 6.4 seconds

  • Modulation Delay mode offers natural, chorus-type sounds

  • Analog Delay mode models the classic warm BOSS DM-2 analog delay sound

  • Tap tempo controllable via external footswitch

  • Delay time, feedback, and effect level can be controlled via external Expression pedal (sold separately)

  • Up to 40 seconds of recording for sound on sound (Hold mode)

The Next Step in Compact Delay

Expanded Delay Time
Up to 6.4 seconds of delay time is available with the DD-7, a marked increase from its predecessor. In addition, Hold mode allows up to 40 seconds of input to be recorded for creating “sound on sound” performances.

New Delay Modes
The DD-7 is equipped with two innovative new delay modes. Modulation Delay provides chorus-flavored sounds. Analog Delay offers a modeled simulation of the classic BOSS DM-2, beloved for its characteristic warmth.

External Control
For hands-free control of the DD-7, an external footswitch and Expression pedal (sold separately) can be used. Tap tempo can be controlled from an external footswitch, while delay time, feedback, and effect level can be changed on the fly via Expression pedal.

Stereo Output
Create amazing effects with the DD-7’s stereo output, such as spatial audio sweeps via true stereo panning. You can also use the stereo outputs to create separate dry and wet signal paths — handy for recording and live-performance control.
