The Boss DD5 is a decent sounding *small* pedal, which has a footswitch 
jack for input of tap times via an FS-5U footswitch or other momentary 
facsimilie. It has all the usual division ratios... 1/8 notes; 1/4 notes; 
1/8 note triplets; dotted 1/8 notes. Just a basic delay with good tap 
tempo capability. It also has spill-over when toggled off so the delays 
decay gracefully. Also has a goofy backward mode and hold mode, both of 
which are marginally useful, but hey... it's a reliable, simple delay. I 
have my plex for looping...
