Wow! Late Savatage guitarist Criss Oliva’s very own stage-used Ibanez DM1100 digital delay rack mount unit is for sale on eBay.
The listing says: This is the real deal and rumored to have been modded! Unit has been thoroughly tested and it works perfectly but shows obvious wear from being on many SAVATAGE world tours. Its missing 2 knobs, the feedback knob is broke off but they can be turned. This delay unit is one of the keys to unlocking Criss’ tone.
Aside from the provenance of being Criss’s gear, I really dig this era of Ibanez effects. Something about them looks almost quaintly futuristic and science-fictiony.
Thanks to Bravewords.com for the heads-up.
