A/DA Signal (1996)

January 2, 1996 - ADA Amplification Systems announces the reissue of its original 1978 FLANGER. It is a true reproduction of the original 1978 floor pedal circuitry and packaging. Hailed as the king of flangers by music columnists and players, the ADA Flanger is capable of producing a wide range of vintage and modern sound colorations, dramatically enhancing the effect of any amplified instrument, voice or percussive device.

The unique capabilities of the ADA Flanger are numerous and astounding, including effects such as rotating speakers, chilling vibrato, "jet sounds," resonance modification, intensified studio flanging and incredible notch filter matrices, to name a few.

The Manual control allows for the setting of static microsecond to millisecond delays, and the Width and Rate controls set the range and speed of the sweeping motion over an extremely wide sonic range. The Enhance control increases the resonance, creating high-Q comb filters, and bizarre metallic effects as well as reverberant decay times. An Even/Odd Harmonics control allows passband peaking at even or odd harmonic relationship for "cardboard tube" and eerie hollow corridor effects.

A Voltage Control input jack allows direct control of time delay with an externally applied voltage or with the optional ADA Control Pedal-A. The ADA Flanger weighs 3 pounds, is housed in its original heavy-duty cast aluminum chassis, and is AC powered with an internal transformer. It is manufactured in the USA and has a one year factory warranty.
