  • Ibanez GEL Graphic EQ

    What is it? Ibanez GEL Graphic EQ. Made in Japan, 1985. Graphical equalizer from Ibanez Master series. Mine’s missing two of the slide pot knobs, but otherwise in decent condition. What comes to similar EQs, there is basically two ways to get the job done. First is the oldschool method of using inductors to create […]

  • Ibanez FLL Flanger

    What is it? Ibanez FLL Flanger from L-, or Master series. Made in Japan, 1985. Now, there is a reason why i’m posting this one right now. I just wrote a post about the SF10, Swell Flanger. Due to that article, there is very little to say about FLL. It’s is the same effect with […]

  • Ibanez SF10 Swell Flanger

    What is it? Ibanez SF10 Swell Flanger from Ibanez 10-, or Power series. Made in Japan, 1987. Swell. I have no idea where the name comes from. But does it matter? Probably not. Solid 10-series pedal with nothing off from the rest of the bunch. The series is rather large with “only” 36 titles in […]

  • Ibanez FL-301 Flanger

    What is it? Ibanez FL-301 Flanger from “0-Series”. Made in japan in 1980. I used to own the DX version back in the day. Difference between this, the first 0-series flanger and the second DX version is the operational voltage. This puppy demands 18 Volts, while the De Luxe version promises the same tones with […]

  • Ibanez SD9M Sonic Distortion Mod

    What is it? Ibanez SD9M Sonic Distortion Mod from the modern 9-serie “reissue” line. Made in china, early 10’s I still haven’t been able to score the original, classic Sonic Distortion for a reasonable price, but i did manage to find this one a while back. And as usual, i needed to see what it’s […]

  • Ibanez PPE-1 DCP Parametric EQ

    What is it? Ibanez PPE1 Parametric EQ from DCP series. Made in japan around1989. There may be a reason for this series being scarce for those who want them. These may not be as relevant for today’s guitarists as they were back in the 1987, when the line was released. At that time, the digital […]

  • Ibanez PT999 Phase Tone

    What is it? Ibanez PT999 Phase Tone. Made in japan by Maxon around 1976. These units apparently are not as rare as i thought. I suspect that the number manufactured was very high as there seems to be several units available in shops and auction sites even right now. Apparently the units sold very well […]

  • Ibanez PM7 Phase Modulator

    What is it? Ibanez PM7 Phase Modulator from 7/Tonelok series. Made in china, 2005 As the truly modern guitar effects go, there are usually those that designers have spent hours to design an effect that sounds great on guitar. Better than the previous takes on this same subject. Then there are these designs that try […]

  • Ibanez DPL10 Digital Pan Delay

    What is it? Ibanez PDL10 Digital Pan Delay from 10/Power series. Made in japan in late 80’s. Got this as a defunct unit from one finnish guy i did some deals and trades with. As it was not passing signal, the previous owner had borrowed the stomp lid to another pedal. Gladly, i happened to […]

  • Ibanez AW7 Autowah

    What is it? Ibanez AW7 Autowah from 7/Tonelok series. Made in china, 2005. Where Ibanez AW5 from soundtank series left me a little on the cold side by its sound and overall feel, the follower for the Tonelok series does things differently. To begin with, all  the control slots on the enclosure are in use. […]
