I make no apologies for being a bit of a junkie when it comes to the Akai Professional gear produced in the late 1990s/2000s.
Akai really hit the sweet spot with these now sought-after pedals, in particular the SB1 Deep Impact and the UB1 UniBass, made in Korea. Of course, the whole line-up was innovative. Graphic equalisers were used in combination with multi-compressors and distortions, and expression pedals were used to modify tube distortions and wah parameters.
Together with "touch" phasing as well as delay/loopers and samplers, the popular red synthesiser and harmony/distortion pedals mentioned above rounded out a quality collection of effects.
If you too have plans to own each and every one of the original Akai Pro line, the eBay forces have combined to give you a rare opportunity to significantly improve your collection:
