BOSS and EVH Unite to Bring You the Legendary Eddie Van Halen Dual Delay Sound

EVH and BOSS join forces to bring you the SDE-3000 EVH Dual Digital Delay, an authentic recreation of the stereo delays at the heart of Eddie Van Halen’s massive three-cabinet live stage guitar sound. Based on the vintage Roland SDE-3000 rackmount delay, this powerhouse processor puts two fully featured SDE-3000s in one floor-based pedal, coupled with extensive connectivity to build a wet/dry/wet rig just like Eddie’s. You also get eight presets created by EVH with the exact settings from his actual delay units, allowing you to experience the master’s expansive spatial delay tone in your own setup.

SDE-3000EVH Dual Delay

The SDE-3000EVH delivers an authentic recreation of the stereo delays at the heart of Eddie Van Halen’s live three-cabinet wet/dry/wet stage guitar sound. The legendary guitarist pioneered this approach in the early 1990s, using a dry path from a single amplifier in the center cabinet and left and right cabinets amplified with wet-only delay effects for a wide, multi-dimensional soundstage. The Roland SDE-3000 delays were perfect for his needs and remained core components of his stage rig throughout his long career. With the multiple outputs and versatile routing modes in the SDE-3000EVH, it’s possible to recreate this setup with your own amps.

One-Touch EVH Presets

The SDE-3000EVH features eight EVH presets accessed via a dedicated panel switch. The first four presets are designed for a wet/dry/wet setup, and they represent the actual presets Eddie used in his live rig. The next four presets provide the same sounds, adapted for a standard stereo amplifier setup. The EVH presets are exactly like the presets in Eddie’s rack. There’s no difference in mix levels, input levels, or delay times — it's one-to-one.

Authentic Details, Modern Enhancements

The SDE-3000EVH includes nearly every parameter from the vintage 80s SDE-3000, accessed via a retro interface derived from the vintage hardware.

Two SDE-3000s in One Pedal

The SDE-3000EVH provides two discrete delays with independent parameters and mono or stereo modulation on each. And along with the EVH wet/dry/wet configuration, the flexible I/O supports a variety of mono and stereo setups.

Modern Compact Power

With its pedal-based design and expanded control options, the SDE-3000EVH offers much greater versatility than its rackmount inspiration. Three onboard footswitches provide instant control of memory selection, tap tempo, delay hold, momentary effect engagement, and more. Two control jacks allow you to connect up to four footswitches, two expression pedals, or a GA-FC/GA-FCEX for external operation, and TRS MIDI I/O is also included. There’s a large selection of assignable targets to choose from, delivering deep real-time control that reaches far beyond the capabilities of the original SDE-3000.
