    Ibanez AD 100 Analog Delay

    Ibanez AD-100 Analog DelayPublished on 11/30/01 at 15:00
    I walked into a pawn shop in Naniamo, British Columbia Canada with a musician friend of mine and found this awesome unit sitting on an amp. I like to think it was waiting there for me. I paid $150 Canadian for it and it is worth every penny.

    The first thing that interested me about this unit was its ability to make space ship landing sounds (hehe). But after I had a chance to fiddle with it at home I realized what great tone this thing has. It really has a dynamic sound which is full and blows my Line 6 DL4 delay modeller out of the water.

    The only thing that bugs me about the unit is when I plug it into the hi-gain input on my bluesbreaker it gives out a high pitched squeal like a TV d…

But after I had a chance to fiddle with it at home I realized what great tone this thing has. It really has a dynamic sound which is full and blows my Line 6 DL4 delay modeller out of the water.

    The only thing that bugs me about the unit is when I plug it into the hi-gain input on my bluesbreaker it gives out a high pitched squeal like a TV does, since this squeal can only be heard when the effect is off I might get a true bypass mod put in it to get rid of the squeal. Also, the delay turns right off when the effect is deactivated, I wish it would trail off instead.

    The unit is a table top unit, with rubber feet. It is also built like a tank, black metal construction, and huge fat knobs!!!
    The front plate is plastic and has all the knobs in plane view there. It has a 1/4 inch input jack, 1/4 inch dry out, 1/4 inch wet out, and a footswitch jack. The knobs from left to right are: input level, delay time, repeat, delay level, and normal level. It also has an effect on/off toggle if you don't have a footswitch.

    Overall, great unit. I would have liked to see an expression pedal for this unit but they never made one. The unit is quite old, early to mid eighties and is still works like a charm. I love it and would not part with it. If it was lost I would replace it, but I think I would be hard pressed finding another one like it. I guess they are pretty rare. If you find one, buy it, if you don't like it, I'll buy it from you.

    Half-rack analog

    UTILIZATION

    Very easy to use.
    On a guitar amp, for use in mandatory insert in a loop for optimal results.
    However, bcp + settings require attention than current digital delay.
    The board is for something else, but I advise to push the settings of the machine far enough, then gradually increase the dosage of the loop amplifier until the desired sound.
    This model stands in over my head to ampicillin from a long time now ... and it is not about to leave. No wind for me. Opportunity: The model I got is actually a new old stock from a local mag wanted to do some cleaning in the back room ...

    SOUND QUALITY

    I'll keep it simple: it simply delay the + amazing that I could touch it with a scraper. I'm pdt long delays with old-style space or echo Dynacord (I'm still a fan for that matter) but this Ibanez is bcp + easy to use, easy to carry in concert, bcp + reliable, honest, it sounds as good if not better!
    With the old analog model, it certainly will not exceed 600 or 800 ms. But here it is above all about quality of sound. The grain is really excellent, the sound is so hot that it soothes the ears. I rarely heard a delay as natural.

    For hackers, it is excellent tapper bp without oscillations and to saturate the delay without it coming assault the eardrums.

    My basic settings: primarily to provide a great atmosphere in the clear, I use it quite a bit pseudo-reverb (slapback type) but with a + and a relatively high mix of repeat tx slow ... I must say that today'm allergic to any other type of reverb. In saturated (or hyper saturated) the slight shift of scale and bcp brings the heat to bring out a great solo, or pass a particular atmosphere. In all circumstances the food does not delay, it retains all the clarity of the game and enhances the sound of any scratches.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Early 70's. This is one of the first delay produced by Ibanez, designed just after the first prototypes ...
    For me the AD100: simply the Rolls Royce of delays.
    If you still have the chance to come across one such model. Do not hesitate and go for it!
