However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days

  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Twelve Studio Quality Delay Modes

Featuring twelve different delay modes the DD-500 provides all the tools to create anything from standard digital delays to vintage delays and even psychedelic reversed delay tones. With a combination of vintage and modern delay types and advanced control parameters its extremely simple to create and store a range of delay tones for your full live set or use in the studio. Each delay type also incorporates a semi parametric EQ four adjustable EQ bands allowing you to fine tune your effect and create studio quality delays on the go.

Unbeatable Sound Quality

Running a high powered digital sound processor the DD-500 is capable of creating professional delays with an audio resolution of 32-bit/96 kHz in a wide stereo image. Although operating through a digital signal process the DD-500 ensures it does not filter or alter your original analog guitar tone allowing you to retain your guitar tone and simply adding stunning digital delay to the output mix. Additionally the buffered bypass means you can enable delay carryover when switching the pedal on and off so delay trails are never cut abrubtly.

Impressive Features and Real-Time Control

With a large LCD screen at the heart of the DD-500 gives you real-time visualisation of your current effects settings and stored bank so you never accidentally use the wrong tone. Furthermore the added USB port to the rear of the unit allows patch backup and storage on your Mac or PC so you never lose your favourite delay settings. By default, the A, B, and TAP/CTL switches offer intuitive control for two patches, bypass, bank selection, tap tempo, and more. However, they can be customized to operate in alternate ways, such as providing top-level access to three different delay patches, or allowing you to use two patches at once for layered delay sounds. Instead of tap tempo, you're able to assign the TAP/CTL switch to various real-time functions like Warp or Twist for a wide range of expressive effects.
