  • 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 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 DDL20 Delay III

    What is it? Ibanez DDL20 Delay III from Power series. Made in japan around mid 80’s. I should count the Ibanez delays. Yup. At least 18 different delay units are listed at the Effectsdatabase. Sure, this includes all the units from different series since 70’s, but that’s still a lot of delays. The features on […]

  • Ibanez SS20 Session Man II

    What is it? Ibanez SS20 Session Man II Distortion/Delay multi-effect from Power series. Made in japan in mid 80’s. Ok. Apparently the first session man wasn’t a flop enough. Sharing parts of the design with the first Session Man “multi-effect”, this unit pairs a nasty, short delay to what appears to be the same distortion […]

  • Ibanez DDL10 Delay II

    What is it? Ibanez DDL10 Delay II from Power series. Made in japan around mid 80’s. Power series has way too many delays. What makes this fact even more sad is that these are all interesting designs. And most of them differ from others, so it’s a painful series to collect. To begin with, Delay […]

  • Ibanez FC10 Fat Cat Distortion

    What is it? Ibanez FC10 Fat Cat Distortion from Power series. Made in japan between 86-89. The first Ibanez take to replicate the ProCo Rat was a success of its own. A buffered Rat with standard Ibanez electronic JFET switching. Sure there are numerous other Ibanez takes on the Rat later on, most with more […]

  • Ibanez MT10 Mostortion

    What is it? Ibanez MT10 Mostortion MOS-FET Distortion from Power series. Made in Japan, late 80’s. As the Ibanez Power series pedals come, there aren’t that many original designs that have risen into cult status and are priced as such on the used pedal market. The MT10 Mostortion is one of those, filling this void […]

  • Ibanez DL10 Delay

    What is it? Ibanez DL10 Digital Delay from Power series. Made in japan between 1986-1989. The Ibanez delays are usually highly praised and for a reason. Solid construction and nice design. When i think of it, many other types have design flaws. This of course isn’t limited to just Ibanez. Still. usable delays are more […]

  • Ibanez MS10 Metal Charger

    What is it? Ibanez MS10 Metal Charger from Power series. Made in japan between 1986-89. Apparently, these units were a big seller. Which is once again something that i find intriguing. How does a very average distortion design with obvious fault in it become a big seller? I really do not know the answer to […]

  • Ibanez PH10 Bi-Mode Phaser

    What is it? Ibanez PH10 Bi-Mode Phaser from Power series, made in japan between 1986-89. One of the nicest phasers. The Bi-Mode here means that the phasing stages are switchable between six and ten stages. Which is not a bad idea to throw in to a huge bowl of phasers. Got this unit for a […]
