I think the true bypass is the only change to the originals. The first 100 went to Japan I think, I hope to have some in a month or so, can't wait!Sorry if this is a dumb question, but is the new re-issue true-bypass, and will it run on 9V or maybe 18V? The originals had a hard-wired A/C cord, didn't they?
Looks like the original NOS BBD chips, the same as the ones in the original:Does anyone know what BBDs these are using?
Have you heard it, Mike? Did you get to check out a demo box? No clips on the web site. No reviews. No videos. No interior shots. No money shots.I think the true bypass is the only change to the originals. The first 100 went to Japan I think, I hope to have some in a month or so, can't wait!
The MN3010 is significantly more rare and expensive than the SAD1024.Right, but which NOS BBDs? I'd be very surprised if they found enough Reticon SAD1024s to use in these, so I'm guessing they're using Matsushita MN3010s or MN3007sbut I'm curious if anyone knows for sure.
nope!I think it might be new ownership, but they're trying to revitalize the old brand, they only have plans for the flanger and final phase right now.
A couple guys on diy stompboxes did the legwork to adapt the circuit to an MN3007 or MN3207 about a year and a half ago. At the time there were no a/da clones on the market. HBE had done their a/da clones with the original a/da PCB artwork and sad1024 but then they ran out of sad1024 and discontinued the pedal. Then after the diystomps stuff came out Ibanez came out with the airplane flanger and HBE did the new release of the frostbite with an MN3007 inside. Chances are the a/da reissue is the same thing in an original-style enclosure.Didn't realize that about the MN3010. Thanks!
The iheartguitarblog.com link above does quote "Bill" from A/DA as stating that they are using an unspecified NOS BBD chip rather than Chinese current-production.
