Ibanez AD9 Analog Delay

The Ibanez AD9 Analog Delay Effect Pedal uses a compander with pre- and de-emphasis for an exceptionally clean delay. Time and level controls allow mixing between dry and delayed signals. Repeat control lets you adjust the number of repeats without runaway. 2 outputs enable dry and delayed signals to be routed separately. - Discrete echo is one of the most dramatic effects in the music industry. Bulky tape and "spinning disk" units have given way to the convenience and reliability of solid state delays. The AD9 Analog Delay uses a compander with pre- and de-emphasis for an exceptionally clean delay. The Delay Time control adjusts the delay time and the Delay Level control allows the artist to adjust the mix between dry and delayed signals. The Repeat control permits the number of repeats to be controlled without runaway. Two outputs enable the dry and delayed signals to be separately routed for dramatic special movement. The quality and features of the AD9 Analog Delay make it the professional choice. - -

Give me analog warmth over the sterile digital any day--Ibanez style!

Ease Of Use Simple 3-knob layout, one input, and two outputs--out ans dry out. The knobs are spaced far enough apart for easy tweaking. The battery compartment is the nice pop off type typical of the Ibanez 9-series. The footswitch is easy to operate with minimal force applied.

Sound Oooooh, that analog warmth! Most people swear by digital delays--maybe it's hype. I'll take an analog delay any day! This AD9 is no exception. I get some really sweet delays with that analog warmth. Digital pedals sound, well--too "digitized." This analog delay has a very organic tone to it. You also don't lose the flavor of your tone going into the AD9--it retains the original characteristics of whatever effects you have in front of it. I tried this out with several guitars with various pickups with the same results. I tried the pedal towards the end of a chain of pedals going straight to my B-52 head's input, and also through the effects loop. The AD9 sounded great in both places.

Reliability Typical Ibanez 9-series metal chassis with tough metal footswitch.

Liked about it The natural warmth of the analog delay.
Not losing any characteristics of the other effects in my signal chain.
It sounded great through my amp's effects loop and straight to the input.
