Dating back to times when the digital delays weren't yet all that great, the Ibanez AD202 offered high quality analog delay for the guitarist in a 2U rack package (the REAL professional analog delays of the range were the AD-230 and AD3000 with balanced ins and outs). This unit features no less than three bucket-brigade delay chips and sounds very clean for this type of technology. On top of the usual delay range, mix, regen, and modulation width and speed conrols, we get a very handy tone control for the delayed signal.
The tones are exceptional and as clean or as grungy as needed thanks to the tone control. The Ibanez AD202 is without a doubt one of the best units for anybody enamoured with vintage delays and modulations and you quickly forget its cumbersome 2U format once you plug it in.
