Ibanez AD-80

My Ibanez AD-80

(Brought around 1992 second hand)

Ibanez AD-80 Analog Delay

The famous ‘0’ series , which gave us the Tube Screamer and the AD-80
was made from ’79-’81 thanks to Mr. S. Tamura a senior engineer at Nisshin Onpa (Maxon).
These pedals used electronic FET switching and had a solid square switch.

The Maxon board inside the AD-80 had a Panasonic (Matsushita) MN3005,
further it was designed for a +18 volts power cord that gives it an odd power!
