Always been a fan of Boss delays and was thinking of tracking down a DD-2 again when I came across a great deal on Reverb (shocking, I know). A 1987 Boss DD-3 (made in Japan) which has the same long chip as the DD-2. Story goes Boss was able to obtain the chips used in the DD-2 cheaper but instead of lowering the price of the DD-2 and upsetting people who already bought it they released it as the DD-3 (v1).

This is in mint shape with the box, original contents and the original retail price still on it ($275). I got it for $100US!

What kind of memory delay chips did they use to achieve the 31 year long delay? That seems pretty impressive :).
They would have used separate A/D-D/A conversion and memory. I imagine they used those 128gig flash drives as memory storage. The remarkable thing is that the first byte/word in that memory is still intact. But boy, you have to wonder what a 31-year reverse-delay would sound like.
