Syncing 2 delay pedals

Hello my friends!

I have a question regarding 2 delay pedals (mine are DD7 and DD5) and would like to get anyone's experience on syncing them up using a single tap tempo.

Reading online, I see some people say using a Y splitter actually had their pedal timings drift part after some time. I also see some using these products:

Just asking you guys if you have any ideas on this? I'm open to any suggestions!

Thanks and have a nice day!

Re: Syncing 2 delay pedals

Since you are not using pedals with numeric readouts, the only way to sync them accurately would be to use the products you listed. What delay setting will each pedal be set to when you sync them with the tempo?

One suggestion would be to buy a delay pedal which can send out two delays from a single unit: http://www.***************.com/ampli...-effects-pedal It would simplify your signal chain and probably be more accurate since its coming from one unit. However, as you can see, there is a major price difference.
