Korg SDD3000 Pedal reviewed in TopGuitar magazine

TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the December issue of the magazine features a review of SDD3000 Pedal guitar effect unit from Korg. The product was delivered for review by Korg distributor in Poland, Mega Music.

Below are some excerpts from a review by gear department editor Krzysztof Blas:

“SDD3000 is a legend among delay effects. The original design, dated 1982, became an industry standard for professional musicians. This renowned digital device has just returned to Korg’s catalog, however, not as a rackmount unit, but a guitar stompbox.”

“The device does not generate audible noise, which will surely be appreciated in the studio. All in all, the studio can be a perfect environment for the SDD3000, because the effect can work in full stereo mode – you can use it also with other instruments or put in the signal chain of a microphone.”

“To call SDD3000 a digital delay would be unjust for this timeless machine. It is an advanced delay line that – giving you exceptionally wide control over all parameters – lets you define entirely new effects based on the added signal shifted in time. Its ease of use encourages searching for sounds previously unknown.”

The latest issue of TopGuitar magazine is available across Poland in Empik and Ruch press retail networks, in the online store (, and as mobile version for tablets and smartphones using iOS ( or Android ( operating systems.
