Ibanez Paul Gilbert Signature AF2 Airplane Flanger Pedal Review
For years, one of Paul Gilbert’s signature sounds came from a flanger pedal that had been modified to change pitch from high to low, creating a wild dive-bomb effect. The pedal eventually broke, but not before Gilbert and Ibanez were able to collaborate on a pedal that recreates that effect. The result is Ibanez’s new Paul Gilbert Signature AF2 Airplane Flanger, a pedal that sounds as wild as it looks.
The AF2 is actually two pedals in one. The Taxi section creates a traditional chorus flange, while Takeoff serves up a reproduction of Gilbert’s modified flange tone. Housed in a rugged die-cast case printed with retro orange-and-purple graphics, the AF2 lets you travel in style. It has controls for manual (delay time), speed (modulation speed), range (modulation depth), enhance (feedback), and Takeoff Speed, plus footswitches for on/off and Taxi/Takeoff modes. The no-nonsense interface provides mono input and output jacks and a power input for the included nine-volt DC adapter. Strap yourself in and prepare for takeoff.
