[SOLD] ugly and cheap MIJ DD-3 Digital Delay

Post by Pepe » Fri Jul 21, 2023 9:31 pm

SOLD.


Another Frankenstein BOSS pedal has arrived at my place. This Japanese DD-3 has been treated poorly by its previous owner(s).

As you can see someone scratched off some letters of the pedal treadle. Don’t ask me why! When I bought the pedal I hoped that it was only Tipp-Ex, but sadly this isn’t the case. The treadle must have been used as a replacement part, because it is definitely from a ’90s Taiwanese DD-3 and it has a brighter colour than the body.

The base plate is also not the original one, as it has a black label with the ACA power supply information (which is definitely wrong!).

At some point the 11V zener diode must have been faulty. It was removed by someone with bad soldering skills, because apart from the solder lugs of the zener diodes two conductive paths were broken by this procedure. I used jumpers to repair the broken connections and I also put in a new zener diode.

The Level potentiometer is slightly bent, but it works without any problem. The potentiometer caps are a little bit discoloured. The pedal doesn’t have the original thumbscrew and I didn’t have one in my parts bin.

The pedal works and sounds great, just like my other MIJ DD-3. Everything was cleaned inside and out, plus the jacks and the potentiometers received my well-proven treatment that ensures crackle-free operation.

I’m selling it for the price that I paid for it: 70 EUR (without shipping).

Shipping to EU countries: 14.50 EUR
Shipping to Great Britain: 18 EUR
Shipping to USA/Canada: 22.50 EUR

(all options: insured DHL parcel with tracking option)

Yeah, and it seems as if I already have a buyer here in Germany.
