Boss DC-3 Digital Dimension

In 1988 Boss started focusing on the more popular multi-effect rack units of the time and only 1 compact pedal was released, the DC-3. One of the more popular rack-mount effects had been produced to rave reviews the SDD-320 and it was turned into a popular compact pedal the DC-2. Now that digital technology was taking over, they decided to eliminate the 4 presets and allow the user to use knobs to tweak this popular effect. Again, they weren't trying to produce your typical chorus effect, but more of an ambient space-effect and digital would allow a more cleaner yet less-organic feel. In the beginning they released it as the Space-D but then switched to the Digital Dimension moniker. It was produced in Taiwan for a mere 4 years so it is still one of the rarer finds although I still prefer the analog flavour of the DC-2. For more info on the current Boss line-up see or visit
