Product Description

Maxon Multi Effector UE-700 & Analog Delay/Flanger AD-230 for sale

The UE-700 is very rare - it is the fist guitar multi-effects unit ever produced: in 1979 Ibanez hand built a small number of these, responding to Bob Weir from The Grateful Dead complaining about the wires spewing from his pedals. It was subsequently more mass-produced in a similar form as the UE-400 and 450, but it's very uncommon to see one of these original units, complete with the foot switch controller, all in working order. The five effects comprise Phaser, Compressor, Distortion, Flanger and Equalizer. The labels on the foot switch all light up when you engage the effects, and the whole thing is built for the rigours of 1970s touring (which is why it still works!). For more information about this unit we recommend the peerless tonehome.de.

Apparently this pair of units have been companions since they were put together by Maxon for a Japanese guitarist.

The AD-230 is from the same era and is also extremely uncommon. This rack units was developed in order to bring BBD (Bucket Brigade Delay) tech into the professional studio, with transformer balanced input and output, and deploying a whopping 15 MN3004 chips to get a very smooth sound and low noise floor. This means the sound is quite different to what you may be used to with old analogue delays – much cleaner and more polished. This makes it ideal for some applications – and the flanger in particular benefits from the wonderful depth and clarity to the sound – but maybe not if what you actually want is a darker more gritty BBD effect.

With these two to choose from you have all the analogue delay textures you could ever wish for, and the possibility of some wild chains of multi-flanging, phasing etc with the units in parallel, series, stereo...
