    the rest of my delay is the POD.

    I've used a DD-3 for years with great results.
    They're dependable units and I can honestly say say the delays are great, and it's never given me a day of problems.
    I used a DD-5, but found there was a lot more than I needed, and found the DD-3 to do really well in live situations. I don't use reverb, so the delay on these boxes does just fine, whether it's in the loop or straight in.
    I found the pod to be good for recording, but at full volume it sounded washed out and had a cold solid state sound to it.

    What tribb said.

    What would a person need with that reverse feature? It's a cool idea, but I would think in a live situation that's a formula for disaster, and in the studio, they're kind of a lightweight.

    I have a DD3 too. It is a great delay box. I just got a Danelctro DanEcho and this is the best Delay pedal I've owned. This isn't one of those mini dano jobs. Its the one in the bigger metal casing, and the sound is the closest to a tape delay I've ever heard in a stomp box. The cool thing about it is that is the treble cut knob that allows to set the repeats as warm or as digital as you want them. If you like how non digital that the DD-3 sounds(even though its called digital) then you'll love the warmth of the DanEcho.

    I tried the DanEcho at one time. My marshall head's modded pretty hot, and on that head I use my delay in the loop only. I found the DanEcho to be too noisy, although the delay was ok.
    On my fender amp I use the DD 3 right into the front cause it doesn't have a loop,(not yet anyway), and the DD 3 sounds just as good there.

    I don't own a DD-5 cause I use my Line6 amp for all delay! However, I have played them and know people who use them and it will give you pretty much any VH delay you need. I have heard it do-- Cathedral, Humans Being, Eruption, Ain't Talkin Bout Love just great. Can't get much better in my opinion unless you get some expensive rack effects like the Eventide or something!

    I've heard about this too, and I think the Dan Echo's are hit or miss. I hear of a lot of people having noise and distortion issues with it, but I've run mine in the loop of my 5150 at gig level with zero noise, and I got a H&K Redbox yesterday to use as a line out on my Super Lead to feed my effects and I ran the Dan Echo after the Marshall into the redbox and then into the power section of my 5150 and still no noise. BTW the Redbox is awesome. It let's me run my echo chorus and flanger after the power tube saturation of the marshall into two 2x12 cabs(powered by the 5150 power section) and the other speaker jack goes straight into my 4x12 cab, so I get a wet/dry/wet setup with all Super Lead tone.

    I own the DD-5 and it does have alot more than i need but it does have decent sounding delay. Here's some settings
    Cathedral E-level= 3 oclock
    F-back= 10 oclock
    Delay time= 2 oclock
    Mode- 3 (200-800 ms)

    You can also get the univox echo chamber sound at the end of eruption with the DD-3 if you put it on 200-800 ms with two or three repeats and after you hit the note slow the delay time from the 12 oclock position to about the 3 or 4 oclock position. this only works on the DD-3, thats what sucks about the dd-5
