Ibanez AF2 Airplane Effects Pedal : Review

AF2 Airplane

Controls

  • Manual
  • The Delay time. Turning the knob to the right produces a Flanger, to the left a Chorus.

  • Speed (Taxi)
  • The AF2 provides two different Flanger types, each with a dedicated control for the speed.

  • Range
  • It changes the oscillation range of the effect.

  • Enhance
  • The feedback volume.

  • Speed (TAKEOFF)
  • The speed of the second Flanger.

This is what Paul Gilbert said about the TAKEOFF:

"It produces a continuous sweeping oscillation. It is similar to a Whammy."

Valid and versatile

The price is 190 Euros. My opinion is that it is justified, if we consider the overall quality of the product. Yes, perhaps you pay also the signature of Paul Gilbert, but the AF2 is versatile and can make a good job in many different contexts. In the manual there are some rather interesting settings that can be a good starting point. Moreover, it is silent and is equipped with the true bypass.

    CS9

    A reissue that has in common with the original version the analog circuit, a rarity on the modern market, and the simplicity. Only two knobs: Speed and Width, but, notwithstanding this, the pedal is flexible and versatile.

    The most important characteristic is the flexibility. With two outputs and the speaker emulator this Reverb pedal can be connected directly to a mixer or a recorder. The battery life is approximately 4 hours.

  • Floorboards | Zoom
    G7.1ut

    An excellent product at a very good price. It features a 12AX7 tube for the sound generation and a modern 32-bit chip. The display is rather small, but all is clear and immediately available on the front panel.
