They're almost exactly the same circuit and use the same BBD IC as the earlier AD-9, and are exactly the same as the ADL. They have a very warm and kinda dark echo tone. They usually don't sell for more than $100 or so on ebay which is a great deal considering original AD-9's are selling for twice that or more.

i have one and i like it better than my maxon ad-80 (less muddy). It does the feedback thing that the ad-9s i've tried out can't do. Well worth the money. I have no idea why they aren't going for more money on ebay.

One of the 1st pedals I bought, don't know what happened to it.

I loved it, may buy another one someday.

I've still got the manual for it - if the one you bought doesn't have one and you need it let me know.

thanks so much, i'll let you know

It probably wouldn't be worth the trouble. There are two pc boards and everything is board mounted.
Sorry, my english sometimes is horrible, you mean is difficult, no?

Difficulty would be dependent on your experience. I personally don't believe it would be worth the trouble of rehousing it. I never noticed any tone sucking, it's buffered like every other Ibanez pedal.

It arrived today, sounds great, it's an ugly thing but i'm happy, sound much better that i expect. Thanks for your opinions.
