About This Listing

Ibanez Modulation Delay DML20. Rare and mint. Late 80's. Plenty of the DML10's around but very few of these DML20's. This delay still does things the boutique boys can't. Incredible modulation controls. Very warm. up tp 1024 ms.
15.00 shipping via USPS anywhere in the USA.

A review:
Delay Time, Delay Level and Repeat are the basic controls knobs found on the DML20 for the actual delay portion of the pedal. The Time has a great range, from 1ms up to 1024ms, making it plenty long enough for most of us. Level and Repeat are standard controls, but do their exactly as they should. The fun of this pedal comes in the modulation section, starting off with the mode selection knob.

The Mode selector features a few different delay (or echo) modes, a chorus mode and a flanger mode. What? That’s right, this thing can do it all, and do it really well. The Chorus (delay time of 4ms-16ms) gets really lush and rich, not at all what you’d expect from an ancient digital pedal, and the Flanger (1ms-4ms) effect goes straight up atmospheric, sending you into the outer reaches of space and beyond with ease.

The Delay modes are easy to choose from as well: Doubling (16ms-64ms), Echo Small (64ms-256ms), Echo Medium (128ms-512ms) and Echo Large (256ms-1024ms). Each one provides a different range with which to play, meaning you can set the perfect delay time for each mode ahead of time, and just have to switch 2 knobs on the fly (if you have to) to get the perfect settings for the perfect songs.

Once again,  has managed to create something a lot of companies today wish they had thought of…except Ibanez did it 30 years ago. With a lot of these effects able to really stand the test of time, they’re not a bad option to seek out if you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary. Plus, with the price tag of these guys, I assume due to their age or “un-coolness” or whatever, you can buy 3 or 4 of them for the price of one modern hipster pedal – not that those are bad, just everyone doesn’t have the budget to afford them is all.
