Yamaha AD-10 Analog delay
The Yamaha AD-10 Analog Delay is a rare and older pedal designed for use with electric guitar. Although you can use it with any electronic instrument, I've only used it with electric guitar, so this review will be focused on this application of the pedal. Like most pedals, it has 1/4" TRS connections and isn't rack mountable as it is a stomp box.


The make up of the Yamaha AD-10 Analog Delay is pretty simple to follow overall. Once you've got it all plugged in and ready to go, there isn't too much more that you need to know. You've got knobs for effect level, feedback, delay time, and input level, which each will change the sound a good amount depending on how you set it. Yamaha has really made it as easy as possible to use the pedal, using simple to understand parameters and nothing out of the ordinary, so I don't believe a manual is necessary, no matter what level you're on.


The Yamaha AD-10 Analog Delay isn't the most versatile pedal in the world, but the sounds that are possible with the pedal are very rich and full sounding. It definitely doesn't sound stale like a lot of the digital delay pedals being made now, as it is vibrant and does its job very well. I've used the pedal with a Fender Stratocaster and a '76 Fender Twin Reverb, so I'm getting a good idea of what the pedal really sounds like. If you're looking for a really versatile delay, this probably isn't it, both for getting basic, warm analog delay tones, the AD-10 is perfect.


The Yamaha AD-10 Analog Delay comes from an unlikely source, as Yamaha doesn't make too many effects pedals. This one is definitely hard to find as I haven't seen a single one other than the one the studio owned. If you're looking for a very cool and rare analog delay, definitely mark down the AD-10 on your list of pedals to hunt down.
