Today I came across the Maxon AD-999 analog delay, thought I would share.Â Looks like when Panasonic stopped created BBDs, Maxon started manufacturing their own to original specs. It’s a pretty classic analog sounding delay.
Here is the official description:
The Maxon AD-999 Guitar Effects Pedals is the most ambitious and practical analog delay pedal to come along in a very long time. A few years back the hopes of analog lovers the world over were dashed when Panasonic closed their BBD production line for good. Rather than giving in to the digital wave, Maxon took the opposite approach and had BBDs manufactured exclusively for them!
Each AD999 comes loaded with eight Maxon MN3107D BBDs for a total of 900ms of pure, rich, organic analog delay. Standard Delay Time, Delay Level, and Feedback controls combine with wet/dry outputs for a variety of sounds and signal routing options. Switching is handled by a 4PDT mechanical switch for transparent, noise-free operation in bypass and the unit runs off 9V DC for easier integration into players’ pedalboards. When you’re ready for the ultimate analog experience, the Maxon AD999 is the only serious choice in an otherwise digital world!
