    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.

    +1...I'm not a big fan of Ibanez/Maxon analog delays...more of a DM-2/DM-3 guy, but I liked this pedal a lot.

    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.

    +1 the adapter jack is too close to the input jack on the 10 series. Forget using Neutrik right angle plugs if you use an adapter.

    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.

    It probably wouldn't be worth the trouble. There are two pc boards and everything is board mounted.

    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.
