Filled with newly developed BOSS technology, the DD-500 is the most powerful and versatile stompbox delay ever created. This incredible sound-creation toolbox offers 12 distinctive delay modes with exceptional audio quality, plus deep editing controls, a graphic display, patch memories, MIDI, and much more. From basic echo to dead-on emulations of classic delays to incredibly lush spatial textures that take your breath away, the DD-500 will launch your music places you never thought possible.
Twelve Versatile Delay Modes and Deep Editing Options
With the DD-500’s 12 delay modes, you can create any delay sound you can imagine, and then some. Everything you need is here, from warm, gritty vintage delays and tape echo to complex modern delay lines that employ pitch shifting, filtering, and other unique processing. With the hands-on knobs, it’s easy to shape essential parameters and create great sounds immediately. Each delay type also includes a semi-parametric four-band EQ, modulation, ducking, and many other parameters, allowing you to dive deep and refine tones with maximum precision.
Unparalleled Sound Quality
In the DD-500, every delay mode has been carefully crafted for a unique sonic personality and highly musical tones at every setting, realized by high-powered DSP running at 32-bit/96 kHz. And while the DD-500’s delay effects are high-end digital, your straight guitar tone remains 100-percent analog at all times, with your choice of buffered or true-bypass operation. In addition to strengthening the analog dry signal, buffered bypass has the added benefit of enabling carryover, so delay trails are not cut off unnaturally when the effect is switched off.
Advanced Features for Stage and Studio Use
In the world of sophisticated delay stomps, the DD-500 stands alone in practical usability. The large, integrated LCD fully supports the pedal’s immense capabilities, giving you clear visibility of delay time, patch ID, and more on one screen, plus sane navigation for detailed parameter tweaks, naming, and system management. And via USB, it’s simple to connect to your computer for patch backup and MIDI control with your favorite DAW.
Intensive Real-Time Control
With its freely assignable controls, the DD-500 delivers unmatched creative expression and performance flexibility. 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. Even more parameters can be manipulated via an optional expression pedal or external switches, and MIDI I/O opens up many additional control options with advanced setups.
DD-500 Delay Modes
• Standard—Clear digital delay.
• Analog—Emulates classic analog “BBD” delays like the BOSS DM series.
• Tape—Emulates the warm sound of tape-based delay units, including the Maestro Echoplex and legendary Roland RE-201 Space Echo.
• Vintage Digital—Emulations of early digital delays from the 1980s, including Roland’s famous SDE-2000 and SDE-3000 rack units and the BOSS DD-2, the original stompbox digital delay.
• Dual—Two different delay lines that can be connected in series or parallel.
• Pattern—Sixteen different delay lines that can be set independently for all types of unique rhythmic effects.
• Reverse—Backwards delay for cool psychedelic effects and other unique tones.
• SFX—“Special effects” delay with a highly unique sound character.
• Shimmer—Pitch-shifted delays for lush, heavenly textures.
• Filter—Delay with a sweeping filter.
• Slow Attack—Ethereal delays that fade in with playing dynamics.
• Tera Echo—Spacious, animated ambience effect derived from the innovative BOSS TE-2 pedal.
DD-500 Assignable Control Functions
The following functions can be assigned to the DD-500’s onboard TAP/CTL switch and/or optional external footswitches. These assignments are stored as part of a patch.
• Tap—Set the delay in time with a song’s tempo.
• Hold—The delay’s feedback is held continuously while the switch is pressed.
• Warp—Increases the delay’s feedback and level simultaneously for powerful expressive effects.
• Twist—Adjusts multiple delay parameters with a single press, creating wild sounds similar to twisting the panel knobs in real time.
• Moment—Outputs the delay sound only when you hold down the switch.
• Roll 1/2—Cuts the delay time to 1/2 of the current setting when you hold down the switch.
• Roll 1/4—Cuts the delay time to 1/4 of the current setting when you hold down the switch.
• Roll 1/8—Cuts the delay time to 1/8 of the current setting when you hold down the switch.
• Fade In—Fades in the delay sound.
• Fade Out—Fades out the delay sound.
• Assign 1-8—Allows you to assign and control up to eight different delay parameters at once.
The TLC Compressor is designed to give musicians the ability to control their dynamics in a flexible and musical way, making it an invaluable musical tool for both recording and live use. Proprietary Trans Linear Control (TLC) circuit enables Aguilar to achieve unprecedented levels of performance in a small package.
The TLC Compressor features a four-knob layout to provide a full set of important features. Using a wide range of attack times and variable threshold and slope levels, you'll be able to dial in just the right sound. Aguilar's TLC Compressor gives you a range of control usually found only in expensive studio compressors.

Wireless guitar system with pedal-style receiver.
Audio-Technica's System 10 Stompbox digital high-fidelity guitar wireless system combines the advanced 24-bit operation, easy setup and clear, natural sound quality of other System 10 configurations with unique functionality for guitarists, bassists and other instrumentalists. Operating in the 2.4 GHz range, far from TV and DTV interference, System 10 Stompbox offers a rugged, metal, pedal board-mountable receiver with foot switch, two switched TRS balanced 1/4" outputs and an output mode selector. With the tap of a foot, musicians can toggle between outputs (e.g., for switching amps) or mute and unmute one output without muting the other (e.g., for convenient tuning). And a single receiver can be paired with up to eight UniPak body-pack transmitters, allowing users to easily switch between instruments without having to move a body-pack from one instrument to the next.
System 10 wireless ensures clear communications by providing three levels of diversity assurance: frequency, time, and space. Frequency Diversity sends the signal on two dynamically allocated frequencies for interference-free communication. Time Diversity sends the signal in multiple time slots to maximize immunity to multipath interference. Finally, Space Diversity uses two antennas on each transmitter and receiver to maximize signal integrity.
Each Stompbox system includes an ATW-R1500 Stompbox receiver, an ATW-T1001 UniPak body-pack transmitter with an AT-GcW guitar cable, and hook & loop strips for adding receiver to an effects pedal board. The ATW-R1500 is a digital receiver with sturdy, metal-body construction, easy-to-read digital ID and transmitter battery level displays, and AF Peak and Pair indicator lights.

The 427 is the modern muscle car of distortion pedals, with a big, meaty tone that's ready to kick ass. Another Paul Gagon creation, 427 builds on his experience crafting pedals for the gods of rock, but this one's got a distinctly American voice.
427 fires up with a potent variation of Gagon's proven LED-based distortion circuit as used in the BBE Blacksmith, with the power flowing to a sweepable EQ (CSEQ) section inspired by an early '70s Big Muff Pi and optimized for maximum flexibility.
On a mission to raise hell on rock-and-roll streets from New York to L.A., 427 delivers more raw power than yesteryear's muscle with better handling. With a beefy mil-spec circuit board sporting big, fat signal traces, 1% metal-film resistors and high-voltage poly caps, 427 is engineered to be deliver rock-solid performance and never leave you stranded. And when you aren't in the mood to lay down serious rubber, 427's true hardwire bypass lets your tone slip by without so much as angry glance from the tone police.
