The ADG-1SE Special Edition is the mack-daddy version of the ADG-1. While the regular pedal maxes out at 700 ms of delay, the ADG-1SE Special Edition gives you a full second of delay. In fact, it goes to 11! 1,100 milliseconds, to be precise. The ADG-1SE Special Edition comes in the stunning "Guitar Night" (Chameleon Teal) color-shifting sparkly high gloss finish and genuine aluminum GØRVA. On the side, it features a stencil of the original Asheville Music Tools BBD Bucket firemen.
Relative to the original circuit, the Special Edition delay time is expanded by a third high-voltage Xvive analog delay bucket. This allows switching between delay times of 16 ms - 350 ms or 50 ms - 1.055 sec, and it can be extended all the way to 1.35 sec with control voltages or expression pedal.
Perhaps the most intriguing feature of the ADG-1SE Special Edition is the Delay Insert. Using a TRS to Y cable, you can patch effect pedals—such as modulation, EQ, envelope filter, or octave—into your delayed signal to successively affect the repeats without changing the dry tone. Beyond the built in modulation, this gives you unlimited options to further alter your delay tone, and the effect is very interesting because your dry tone remains the same. Many ideas are possible! Simple changes like expanded filtering or phased/flanged repeats add more depth and dimension. You can also go wild with fuzz and runaway pitch bending effects. Octave pedals are especially fun; each repeat goes increasingly up or down in octave as they are processed through the delay line again and again. Adding drive or fuzz will lead to extra intense self-oscillation effects.
