Ibanez debuted a lot of cool stuff at Namm 2016 this past weekend. In the pedal department, the Japanese manufacturer unveiled what can now be called a Mini series of compact stompboxes. The Mini Tubescreamer has been on the market for a while now, and the company decided to also offer their acclaimed Analog Delay (ADMINI), Chorus (CSMINI), and Super Metal (SMINI) stompboxes in the mini format as well.
All of these are faithful recreations of their bigger brothers and sisters. The control schemes are the same, and all offer true bypass switching for cleaner signal when not in use. All provide the warm, analog sound that Ibanez is known for and are a great addition to any pedalboard. With their incredibly small footprint, you can virtually squeeze them in anywhere. – Brandon Stoner
