Ibanez AD230 delay/flanger

Has anyone used this? Opinions? Looks nice but I can´t try before buying. It is the upper unit in the picture.

I have the lower unit, which is pretty cool sounding, in an analog delay fashion. BE careful, they are not quite to standard rack mount dimensions.

That 230 is one of my all time favorite analog delays. I had one for a while and regretfully sold it because I never thought I would have a studio to use it in. Silly silly me. I wish I could find one again, but they seem to be very overpriced for what I want as an analog delay. I seem to remember as far as sound goes, one of the thickest HEAVIEST delays I have heard. Really nice modulation on it. A little noisy, but they all seem to be to some extent. I thought one of the coolest things about it was the LED input and output meters. Big blinking lights are yummy.

The AD 230 is a very nice analogue delay, as stabesaudio wrote before, but i would be careful to buy that unit without a check before. It is about 20 years or more old.

Thanks for the replies!

So, is it wider than 19"?

I would like to have it in my rack if I buy it.

Yes it is 19", but 595 $ is overpriced.

Thanks, I´m not buying the one for $595. I just used that picture. What would be a fair price do you think?

It's 19" but may be slightly larger than 2 units. Mine fits only certain positions on some racks

The german 2nd-hand-market offers from 200 - 300 Euros, i.e. ebay.de
