GC: The leads for "Alone" off of Hand It Over sounded a little bit different. Can you describe the tone you got for that and how you got it? Mascis: "Alone" had a lot of effects. I think a lot of it is the LoveTone Meatball and the Ibanez AD9 delay from the same era as the Tube Screamers everybody liked.more
In this [article](http://www.guitarplayer.com/artists/1013/the-killers39-dave-keuning/11697), Dave Keuning of [The Killers](https://equipboard.com/band/the-killers) states, "I use an Ibanez Analog Delay and a Boss Digital Delay for ambience on soaring lead stuff. I don’t know if it’s out of laziness or what, but they stay on the same settings the whole show."more
That’s pretty much it. I’ll run through an effects pedal board, but I’m not really even using a whole lot there ? just a few delay pedals. There’s an Ibanez analog delay AD9, Line 6 delay modeler and a Bad Horsie Wah, that’s pretty much it. It’s not a massive pedal board. Basically I just rely on the guitar, the tone and the amps.more
According to Premier Guitar in Nov 2015, in Desaparecidos: 'Conor only uses a few stompboxes for his core live tone—a Boss TU-3 Tuner, ZVEX Box of Rock, EarthQuaker Devices Monarch and Organizer, and a disengaged Ibanez AD9 Analog Delay. His main dirtbox is the ZVEX Box of Rock, the Organizer is used for one part in a song during the set, and the Monarch is another drive, specifically-EQ’d for when he plays the baritones. Everything on the board is powered by a Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus power supply.'more
In this Instagram photo shared by Jimmy himself, he shows a multitude of pedals he uses and is currently using on his rig. The AD9 can be spotted near the center left side of this massive collection. Jimmy states, "In case anyone is wondering what the guitar sounds like on the next Metric record."more
I'm generally a bigger fan of the exact replication that digital delay offers. But for quite the opposite, I enjoy the AD9. A really warm and natural resonating delay comes with this thing. A bit softer, less punchy, and more subdued sound.
With a warm tone, the AD-9 captures that vintage Maxon-type delay that dominated the 80s. It provides incredible value on the used market and sounds just as great as a wide array of boutique delay pedals.
This is the one that started the fever! Dark, lofi slapback goodness in a much-loved road worn body. Nowadays I use it mostly for a little bit of vocal slapback in the studio.
