  • Ibanez ES-2

    Anyone else really intrigued by this thing?

    I've noticed theres a demo on youtube now (which i can't watch while i'm at work) and a couple of them have popped up on Ebay.

    Sweet lord, I just watched it. Basically just further confirmed that I'm gonna want this pedal.

    For $150 a pop, me thinks they're going to sell very well.

      Ibanez knows delay
      I am also tempted to get one, but would like to see a gutshot first

    I am glad to finally hear it, and it sounds great.  Hopefully a full demo covering all the features and going through all the sounds comes out soon.

              Make sure to include some slider movements for us while sustaining a chord.

            Depth knob is def for the modulation. The delay itself wouldn't have a mix and depth just for the effected signal. C 'maaaaan.

              You got that straight.

            I had an hour to play with it tonight. It is really, really good. I should say though that an EHX DMM was my first pedal and has been my only delay pedal, so i don't really have much to compare it to.

            It's actually quite a sturdy little box. I wasnt really expecting such decent build quality from a $150 Ibanez pedal, especially considering its unusual design. But that's probably just me.

            Soundwise it's very good. As i say, i don't have any comparisons to draw besides the MM, which i think has it beat, but i still really like it. My one gripe with its sound, however, is that its "analog decay" on the repeats seems to be dependant on the delay time. For example, with the repeats set short the delay signal sounds very clear and pleasant, even as it fades. When the repeats are set really long, the delay signal is absolutely bathed in mud. It's mud city. It's practically a squelch, rather than a repeat of the original signal. Picture cranking the feedback on a memory man and and letting the signal decay into oblivion and then take one of those repeats and that is the first thing the ES2 spits back at you. This is quite a large gripe i guess, i don't know if i received a dodgy pedal or something. But it's still cool. I dont tend to use long delay settings anyway so it won't bother me.

            The pitch modulation is a good touch. It works exactly as you'd expect, shifting the pitch up and down with the intensity depending on how far you turn the "depth" knob. It can get pretty nuts when it's maxed out. In a good way.

            My favouritest feature is the feedback switch. Flick it over and you have instant sonic mayhem. it oscillates to its hearts content however the great thing is that the volume doesn't carry on out of control. Flick the modulation switch on and you're torn to shreds by a ferocious beam of warbly noise.

            I only got to play it in conjunction with a Fuzz Face and DOD Vibrothang and it sounded ****************ing sweet.

            It looks cool as well with its blue, green and red LED's.

            This was in no way intended to be a proper review, i just got carried away .

              oh, i didn't realize it had an oscillation type switch.   now my interest is piqued.

              Ibanez knows how to make a delay

            Oh, ****************. I didn't know these were available already. Hopefully some decent demos show up soon. I got absolutely nothing out of the one posted.

              I might try to make a little demo or even just record some sound clips over the weekend if i get a chance.
