Maxon AD-10 Analogue Delay Ten Series Pedal
Cat: 783247 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Analogue delay pedal
Notes: The AD10 takes Maxon's 30+ years of experience in analog delay design and offers it up in one compact, WYSIWYG pedal.

The AD10 delivers up to 600 milliseconds of gorgeous, organic delay that doesn't get in the way of your original guitar tone. Delay repeats are tuned to perfection with a subtle yet distinct distortion and none of the high-frequency whistle associated with over-clocking of the delay circuit.

The AD10's minimalist control interface makes it incredibly easy to dial in a variety of usable delay effects including double-tracking, faux reverb, tight rhythm slapbacks, and longer delays for solos.

The AD10 retains its distinctive sound even when stacked with overdrives and distortions. It works equally well in the front end or the FX loop of an amp and excels at the runaway feedback self-oscillation that everyone now expects from an analog delay.

TECH TALK:
The AD10 features a low-impedance buffered bypass, allowing it to drive long cable lengths or other effect units without loss of signal.

Maxon AD-9 PRO Analog Delay Nine Series Pedal
Cat: 783311 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Analogue delay pedal
Notes: The AD-9 Pro model improves on one of Maxon's most coveted models in order to produce the best-sounding, most reliable analog delay ever. Featuring 4 of Maxon's proprietary MC4107D bucket brigade IC's, and the world's first RMS level sensor and companding noise reduction system, the AD-9 Pro delivers 450 millseconds of the most transparent analog delay sound ever available in a stompbox format.

Offering improved headroom, the AD-9 Pro can accept any input signal and will work in an amplifier's effects loop as well as its front-end.

The AD-9 Pro also features a switchable multi-head tape echo simulator function. This feature provides interesting new delay effects such as the "Ping Pong" repeats made famous by Tape Echo units as well as ambient effects that recreate the echoes of a large concert hall with stunning accuracy.

AD-9 Pro is outfitted with mechanical true bypass switching on both wet and dry outputs by use of a 4PDT switch assuring pure, unaltered tone when bypassed.

In a world that grows more "digital" by the day, the Maxon AD-9 Pro sets a new standard of analog innovation and audio purity.

"If you want a delay pedal with rich tone and a ton of vibe get a Maxon AD-9 Pro! I love the ability to switch from single to dual head delay modes." - Devin Bronson - Guitarist with Avril Lavigne

"Maxon pedals are just simply amazing. Thanks for making pedals that just sound great, all the fucking time!" - Tyler Connolly - Theory of a Deadman

TECH TALK:
The AD-9 Pro starts with a string of low gain, low voltage op amps designed to boost the signal and shape the sound without adding distortion. Signal then passes to a THAT4315s Compander - a precision low voltage, low noise Compander IC designed to boost signal while killing any noise. This IC brings the input signal up to an ideal level and keeps it there as notes decay. This is good for signal-to- noise ratio and also gives the delay chips a clean, strong signal to work with.

The 4 x Maxon MC4107D BBD delay IC's are controlled by two clock driver IC's. The driver is running the BBDs at a very low clock rate to achieve maximum delay time. This rolls off a fair amount of high frequencies, giving the AD-9 a big, warm delay sound.

The delay circuit has a switchable tap that grabs midstream delayed signal and adds it back in with the main delay signal. This setup is very reminiscent of the multi-head feature on vintage tape echoes (Roland Space Echo, etc.).

Both the tapped and untapped signals are sent through their own sets of filtering op amps (3 apiece) which help get rid of clock noise and hiss. Then the signal is sent through another THAT4315s Compander chip and into a mixing Op Amp (where the clean signal is mixed with the delay) and out.

The AD-9 Pro features Mechanical True Bypass switching on both outputs via a Fujisoku 4PDT switch.

NOTE ON POWERING THE AD-9 Pro - this pedal's voltage regulator IC requires a high inrush current of approximately 2000 mA upon startup. When using with a Power Brick such as the Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2+, this pedal should be connected to a high current power jack when possible.

If it is not possible to connect to a high current jack, you can power the AD-9 Pro by leaving a battery in the pedal. Upon initial start-up, unplug the external DC power input cable, engage the pedal, and then plug the DC power input cable back in - the pedal will now power up normally off the external power supply until you power down your pedalboard.

Maxon AD-999 Analog Delay Vintage Series Pedal
Cat: 783426 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Analogue pedal
Notes: The AD999's Delay tone is pure analog heaven - rich, round and three-dimensional, it reacts to your playing and breathes life into your performance.

The AD999 is loaded with eight custom Bucket Brigade IC's for 900 milliseconds of warm, organic analog tone. These BBD's are clocked extremely low to achieve the longest delay time possible, creating a HUGE delay tone that recalls early 70's Pink Floyd with stunning accuracy.

Yet the real magic of the AD999 is in the Delay repeats - they exhibit a slightly overdriven tonality that sits perfectly behind dirty tones and adds depth and dimension to clean sounds. This distortion reacts dynamically to your pick attack, making the initial repeat pop slightly while the remaining repeats blend seamlessly with your original notes.

The repeats also feature a slight EQ spike at around 1.5 kHz, preventing them from getting muddy or non-descript. This also allows the AD999 to maintain presence in a mix without having to raise your volume.

While there are more affordable and more feature-laden Delays out there, you'd be hard-pressed to find one that sounds better than the AD999. When players wax poetic about the mojo and mystery of analog delay - THIS is what they are talking about.

TECH TALK:
A high impedance input buffer passes signal to a Compander stage that acts as a compressor/expander, bringing the input signal up to an ideal level and keeping it there as it decays. This is good for signal-to- noise ratio and also gives the delay chips a clean, strong signal to work with.

The eight x Maxon MC4107D BBD delay IC's are controlled by 2 of the 3 clock drivers in the pedal. These drivers are running the BBDs at a very low clock rate to achieve maximum delay time. This rolls off a fair amount of high frequencies, giving the AD999 its big, warm delay sound.

The delayed signal hits another Compander to level everything out and then goes to a mixer/amplifier that blends the clean and delayed signals and provides a low impedance output.

The AD999 features Mechanical True Bypass switching on both outputs via a Fujisoku 4PDT switch.

Maxon AF-9 Auto Filter Nine Series Pedal
Cat: 783308 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Filter pedal
Notes: You may have noticed that the Maxon AF-9 Auto Filter has undergone a facelift.

Specifically, the Sensitivity & Peak faders have been replaced by rotary pots and the slider switches are now toggles.

This change was made out of necessity due to the discontinuation of the fader pots that had been used on this model for nearly 40 years (original release date was 1981).

While these changes may have been necessary, Maxon saw no reason to update the AF-9's classic, watery, 3-dimensional filtering that so many players have to come to count on over the years. So, you can expect the latest version of this classic quacker to stand up to the original.

While change may be inevitable, if it ain't broke, then don't fix it.

The Maxon AF9 Auto Filter takes the most desirable auto-wah and swept filter effects and offers them up in a compact, user-friendly package. Opto-coupler circuitry produces the shimmering, watery filtering of legendary vintage units. Threshold and Peak sliders control the degree of effect; while Range and Drive switches determine range and direction of the filter sweep. Three selectable filter types (Low Pass, Band Pass, and Hi Pass) and a frequency range of 100 Hz - 4 kHz allow the AF9 to function with virtually any instrument or input signal.

"The Maxon Auto Filter is one of my favorite "go-to" pedals. This really helps you give your playing a human voice without sounding like you just stepped on an effects pedal. It is really special and you can hear it on tons of my recordings." - Marty Friedman (Solo Artist, ex-Megadeth, Cacophany)

TECH TALK:
The AF-9 is Maxon's version of the venerable Mu-Tron III envelope filter circuit (original version, not HAZ reissue). The biggest difference between the two circuits is that the AF-9 runs on a single 9V supply while the Mu-Tron ran at 18V.

In addition, the III had a Gain pot which controlled the output level of the pedal as well as the Threshold of the Filter - this was an awkward design, as it prevented increasing the filter sensitivity without raising the output volume of the pedal.

These items aside, the basic structures of the two circuits are very similar. The AF9 starts with a unity gain buffer Op Amp and then splits the signal into control and effected circuits. The control circuit is shaped by the Sensitivity pot and amplified by an Op Amp. This control signal then travels to a series of two photocouplers.

The effected portion of the circuit split goes into a three Op Amp filter network that is almost identical to the Mu-Tron's, right down to the Low Pass, Band Pass, and High Pass switch that selects which portion of the filter network is used. These filters are triggered by the CdS cell side of the previously mentioned photocouplers.

The AF-9's Range is selected by changing the gain structure of the filters. After the filter network the signal is run through a unity gain buffer to provide a low impedance output.

The AF-9 features Mechanical True Bypass switching via a Fujisoku 4PDT switch.

Maxon ASC-10  Ambient Stereo Chorus Ten Series Pedal
Cat: 783260 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Ambient stereo chorus pedal
Notes: The ASC10's chorusing effect is set especially wide in the stereo spectrum, offering a lush tonality that actually sounds like two guitars playing at once.

The extended operation range of the Rate and Depth controls conjure up everything from gorgeous 12-string simulations to punch-drunk rotary speaker spins.

Stunning on clean sounds and aggressive on distorted tones, the ASC10 is equally at home in the front-end or the FX loop of an amp.

Dual, phase-inverted outputs allow for panning of the ASC10's effect between two amps or tracks, or run mono from output B for a more dramatic chorus effect.

Maxon BD-10 Hybrid Bass Driver Ten Series Pedal
Cat: 783267 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Overdrive pedal
Notes: The BD10 Hybrid Bass Driver brings Maxon's 40+ years of experience in Overdrive design to the world of the Bass Guitar. But guitarists, don't despair; the BD10 works equally well with six strings as it does with four!

The BD10 was designed in cooperation with Masaki - a prominent Japanese Bassist who has played with world-class musicians such as Carmine Appice, Gus G, and John Petrucci, and is also a founding member of the Japanese heavy metal band Animetal.

Masaki's aggressive approach to the Bass includes fluid soloing, manic slapping & popping, energetic fills, and crashing chords for punctuation. He required an overdrive that could keep up with this energetic playing style while still retaining low-end punch and authority.

The BD10's symmetrical clipping path provides sustained, harmonically-rich saturation that retains note clarity and expressiveness even at maximum settings. Aggressive yet dynamic, the BD10 can articulate fast playing techniques such as the multi-finger picking and two-handed tapping that Masaki is famous for.

The BD10 can cover a wide variety of distorted tones, from semi-dirty boosts to punchy, tube-like grind all the way to super-saturated shred. Distorted sounds can then be blended with Dry signal using the independent Clean and Drive Level controls.

Fine tuning the balance between Clean and Distorted signals, the user can obtain the ideal mix for their particular playing style and equipment. Use a pick? Turn up the Drive for chunky chugs. Play with your fingers? Boost the Clean for more clarity and articulation of your notes.

Clean signal can be boosted up to +6 dB above unity gain, allowing the DB10 to be used as a clean or semi-clean booster or as a linedriver for your signal chain.

Since the BD10's circuit is based on Maxon's legendary 808 design, it can also be used with Guitar. The dual tone controls allow the user to dial in the lows that are typically lost with 808-style pedals, while the ability to blend clean and dirty signals can simulate the sound of a dual-amp rig as well as pedals like the Klon Centaur and Voodoo Labs Sparkle Drive.

Compact, versatile, and musically expressive, the BD10 Hybrid Bass Driver is a worthy and welcome addition to the Maxon family of world-class Overdrives.

Maxon CP-101 Compressor Reissue Series Pedal
Cat: 783403 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Compressor pedal
Notes: The CP101 is the perfect solution for players who need a compressor that doesn't get in the way of their tone. Its optical circuit has a slow, smooth reaction time that allows your initial note attack to pass through without being compressed, creating a more natural picking feel.

The CP101's 4:1 compression ratio is so subtle that it's easy to forget that it's on - until you turn it off, that is. While it is on, you'll notice note levels that are smoother and more consistent, chords and arpeggios that are tighter and more focused, and sustain that will last for days.

One thing you won't notice is the hiss and noise associated with VCA compressors - the CP101 has one of the lowest noise floors available in a stompbox Compressor, even with its Level and Compression controls set to max.

With its natural picking response, transparent effect and low-noise operation, the Maxon CP101 is the perfect compressor for players who hate using compressors.

TECH TALK:
At the heart of the CP101's circuit sits a single CdS (Cadmium Sulfur) Photocoupler. This light-sensitive component varies resistance based on the input signal to control the amp gain, increasing level as the input signal weakens.

Many other compressors accomplish this task using a VCA (voltage controlled amplifier), but the multiple transistors packed into a VCA inevitably lead to high noise levels, which means lots of "hiss" from your rig. The CP101's optical circuit keeps the noise floor low - so low that you can even run it after a distortion and still retain near-silent operation.

The CP101 features buffered, JFET bypass switching with a low impedance output, allowing it to drive long cable lengths or other effect units without loss of signal.

Maxon CP-9 Pro + Compressor Nine Series Pedal
Cat: 783312 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Compresssor pedal
Notes: The CP-9 circuit provides a very smooth, transparent, almost "glassy" compression with an extremely low noise floor, even at maximum settings. Your guitar sounds like your guitar, only with a smoother, more balanced dynamic response - Notes jump off the fretboard with stunning clarity and limitless yet controlled sustain.

The CP-9's internal voltage doubler provides massive headroom with full-range frequency reproduction. It can be used with any instrument and for a variety of applications - send into an amp's front end, place in a loop, or use as an outboard processor for home recordings.

With up to +30 dB of clean Gain, the CP-9 Pro+ can also be used as a straight clean booster or as a volume attenuator to clean up an already dirty amp by reducing input level.

The CP-9 Pro+ is that rarity of rarities - a compressor with tons of squash that does not color your guitar tone or create excessive noise.

The CP-9 Pro+ provides studio-grade compression in a portable stompbox format - you'll wonder how you ever played without it!

TECH TALK:
When re-designing the CP-9, Maxon looked at every type of compressor on the market and came to one conclusion - standard-grade components and traditional guitar compressor designs simply would not do.

The CP-9 Pro+ runs off of a dual power supply (converted from a single 9V+) giving the pedal twice the headroom and ability to handle compressing/expanding a signal without clipping.

The pedal starts by splitting the input signal into 2 circuits - control and effected. The control stream makes its way into a THAT2252 chip, a precision RMS level detector (by the "THAT Corporation," a Silicon Valley manufacturer of high-end precision analog chips) which measures the input signal and provides a precise trigger signal for the VCA.

After the RMS chip we head into a series of 4 Op Amps that are used to control the Threshold, Shape, and Gain of the trigger signal. The affected trigger signal is then routed into a THAT2150 VCA which follows the unity gain amplifier in the effected circuit.

The THAT2150 is a Voltage Controlled Amplifier based on the "Blackmer Gain Cell" developed by David Blackmer, the founder of DBX - This VCA structure is the granddaddy of them all and was instrumental in the early DBX designs. After the 2150 VCA the signal is amplified again by another Op Amp and then out through the true bypass switch.

The CP-9 Pro+ features Mechanical True Bypass switching using a Fujisoku 4PDT switch.

NOTE ON POWERING THE CP-9 Pro+ - this pedal's voltage regulator IC requires a high inrush current of approximately 2000 mA upon startup. When using with a Power Brick such as the Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2+, this pedal should be connected to a high current power jack when possible.

If it is not possible to connect to a high current jack, you can power the CP-9 Pro+ by leaving a battery in the pedal. Upon initial start-up, unplug the external DC power input cable, engage the pedal, and then plug the DC power input cable back in - the pedal will now power up normally off the external power supply until you power down your pedalboard.

Maxon CS-550 Stereo Chorus Pro Vintage Series Pedal
Cat: 783420 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Chorus pedal
Notes: With a circuit based around the Panasonic MN3207 Bucket Brigade IC, the CS550's "straight-outta '79" chorus effect is bold and resonant without sounding harsh. Unlike the sterile chorus sounds of the 80's, the 550 has an edgy, almost grainy quality that keeps your tone articulate and prevents wash-out.

The CS550's custom-tuned oscillator circuit provides enough speed for authentic rotary speaker simulation, and just the right amount of modulation for a lush vibrato that won't leave you feeling queasy.

With its Delay Time control the CS550 can venture into Flanger territory, adding a resonant, hollow quality to the effect that's great for solos.

A rear-mounted Blend control allows you to adjust the level of the Chorus effect to set it back in the mix against your dry signal.

A unique feature of the CS550 is its ability to create spatial effects that add dimension to your guitar tone without the traditional Chorus wobble. With Speed and Depth set low and the Delay Time at max, the 550 thickens your sound much in the manner of a double-tracked guitar, adding girth and life without excessive modulation.

The CS550 features stereo outputs for mono, stereo, or inverted mono signal routing.

The CS550 is about as close as you're going to get to the legendary Boss CE-1 chorus/vibrato sound, and also offers many additional sounds unattainable with that vintage gem.

TECH TALK:
The CS550 circuit is similar to the Arion SCH-1 Stereo Chorus, or an updated Boss Chorus Ensemble. A high-impedance input buffer passes next into a Compander stage that acts as a compressor/expander, bringing the input level of the signal up to an ideal output level and keeping it there as the signal decays - this provides a good signal-to-noise ratio and gives the chorusing section a nice, steady signal to modulate.

The Chorus effect is produced by a Panasonic MN3102 low-voltage clock driver IC and a Panasonic MN3207 BBD IC which is controlled by the MN3102.

The Delay Time control exhibits an inverse relation between the delay time and the frequency shift of the chorus - as the delay time increases, the frequency that is shifted decreases. This inverse relation creates "double level" and "cancellation" peaks and notches at particular frequency points to create an amazingly realistic, three-dimensional chorus effect. In addition, the Delay Time control is interactive with the Rate and Depth controls, so that if you increase the Depth, the Delay Time range increases, and if you increase the Speed, the Delay Time changes faster.

After the Chorus section, the signal hits another Compander to level everything out and is then fed to an output buffer.

At the end of the circuit the signal is phase-split and sent to the two low-impedance stereo outputs - Output A is in-phase and Output B is phase inverted (90 degrees out of phase).

The CS550 features Mechanical True Bypass switching on both outputs via a Fujisoku 4PDT switch.

* Please note: Maxon has discontinued the AC210 AC Adapter. Due to this, the Maxon Vintage series pedals will no longer ship with power supply included. The Maxon Vintage Series Pedals can be run with a standard 9vdc Center Negative Adapter. The PA-9 Power-All is receommended.

Notes: With a circuit based around the Panasonic MN3207 Bucket Brigade IC, the CS-9 Pro's chorus effect is bold and resonant without sounding harsh. Unlike the somewhat sterile sounds of its 80's predecessor, the CS-9 Pro has an edgy, almost grainy quality that keeps your tone articulate and prevents wash-out.

The CS-9 Pro's custom-tuned oscillator circuit provides enough speed for authentic rotary speaker simulation, and just the right amount of modulation for a lush vibrato that won't leave you feeling queasy.

With its Delay Time control the CS-9 Pro can venture into Flanger territory, adding a resonant, hollow quality to the effect that's great for solos.

A top-mounted Blend control allows you to adjust the level of the Chorus effect to set it back in the mix against your dry signal.

A unique feature of the CS-9 Pro is its ability to create spatial effects that add dimension to your guitar tone without the traditional Chorus wobble. With Speed and Depth set low and the Delay Time at max, the Pro thickens your sound much in the manner of a double-tracked guitar, adding girth and life without excessive modulation.

The CS-9 Pro features stereo outputs for mono, stereo, or inverted mono signal routing.

The CS-9 Pro is essentially the same as Maxon's CS550, but in a smaller chassis and with battery or AC power options.

TECH TALK:
The CS-9 Pro circuit is similar to the Arion SCH-1 Stereo Chorus, or an updated Boss Chorus Ensemble. A high-impedance input buffer passes next into a Compander stage that acts as a compressor/expander, bringing the input level of the signal up to an ideal output level and keeping it there as the signal decays - this provides a good signal-to-noise ratio and gives the chorusing section a nice, steady signal to modulate.

The Chorus effect is produced by a Panasonic MN3102 low-voltage clock driver IC and a Panasonic MN3207 BBD IC which is controlled by the MN3102. Though the 3207/3201 combo has less delay range than other BBD's of this type, the difference is negligible and the inherent decay of signal quality adds "vintage lo-fi warmth" to the signal.

After the Chorus section, the signal hits another Compander to level everything out and is then fed to an output buffer.

At the end of the circuit the signal is phase-split and sent to the two low-impedance stereo outputs - Output A is in-phase and Output B is phase inverted (90 degrees out of phase).

The CS-9 Pro features Mechanical True Bypass switching on both outputs via a Fujisoku 4PDT switch.

Maxon D&S Distortion & Sustainer Reissue Series Pedal
Cat: 783406 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Distortion pedal
Notes: The EH Big Muff Pi defined the guitar tones of the 70's and then re-defined them in the 90's. Yet for all its legendary pedigree, the Pi of today is a far cry from the triangle knobs and ram's heads that came before it.

Originally released in 1974, the D&S Distortion & Sustainer creates the same silky, compressed fuzz that those vintage Muffs are famous for. Yet where Muffs have a tendency to "blanket" your original guitar tone, the D&S retains more of the original sound and feel of your instrument and amp.

By using hand-selected low-noise transistors, the D&S actually offers more gain than a vintage Black & Red, yet with a lower noise floor. That's right - MORE distortion with LESS noise.

The smooth EQ sweep of the D&S Tone control covers a frequency range that is narrower yet more useful than the Pi's - This tighter, more focused EQ provides superior note definition, even when playing chords.

The combination of these elements gives the D&S the ability to produce huge amounts of distortion with minimal alteration to your guitar's tone.

One big wall of raw, grungy nastiness in a box - the D&S takes the sound of the greatest vintage Muff and turns it up to 11.

TECH TALK:
The secret to the D&S' smooth tone and natural response lies in two areas of its circuit. First, the Hi boost/Hi cut Tone control retains low end response while adding top-end clarity to notes. Next, high-grade, low noise Toshiba 2SC1815 transistors offer more intense distortion with minimal noise and signal degradation.

The D&S features buffered, JFET bypass switching with a low impedance output, allowing it to drive long cable lengths or other effect units without loss of signal.

Maxon DB-10  Dual Booster Ten Series Pedal
Cat: 783269 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Booster pedal
Notes: A unique concept in booster design, the DB10 features two completely independent boost circuits in a single compact housing.

The Clean (Left) channel offers up to +20 dB of clean boost with a completely flat frequency response.

The Vintage (Right) channel is Maxon's take on the classic Treble Booster circuit. It offers up to +20 dB of boost, but with a subtle high-frequency roll-off that increases as the Level is turned towards maximum.

Each circuit has its own input and output jacks, allowing them to be cascaded into one another in any order. Place an overdrive or distortion in-between the channels for additional tonal options - super-saturated overdrive that can then be level-boosted for solos, etc.

One of the many great features of the DB10 is the proximity of the bypass switches to one another, allowing the user to hit both switches simultaneously.

Independent status LED's indicate which channel is engaged and both channels feature True Bypass Switching using a 3PDT switch. Battery or DC (9-18 V) power options.

Compare to "booster" pedals out there such as Suhr Koko Boost, Exotic Rc Booster, Ac Booster, Ep Booster, Pigtronics Class A boost, Fulltone Fat Boost, Tc Boost etc...

Maxon DS-830 Distortion Master Vintage Series Pedal
Cat: 783425 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Distortion pedal
Notes: Despite its modest array of controls, the DS830 is one of the most flexible distortion boxes you will ever encounter.

The DS830 can generate insane amounts of gain while still retaining remarkable evenness and transparency. Yet far from being a one-trick pony, the DS830 is also capable of lightly overdriven blues tones and even semi-clean solo boosts at lower Gain settings.

Clarity and punch may seem like self-canceling traits, yet the DS830 provides both. The high-gain settings don't force a particular color on your tone - a great trait if you're pleased with your particular guitar/amp combination.

The DS830's dual tone controls are surgically effective and highly interactive. The Bass knob contributes low-end muscle that makes a combo sound like a stack and turns a full stack into a wrecking ball. The Treble control dials in just the right amount of bite without excessive top-end sizzle. Between the two, you can get everything from penetrating bite to an obese square-wave bordering on fuzz.

This additional tone-shaping makes the DS830 ideal for use with Bass Guitar, generating an edgy, aggressive tone that retains the note clarity and character of your instrument.

For full-bodied distortion with an amp-like feel and a huge variety of useable tones, the DS830 Distortion Master is unrivaled in its sonic range.

*Please note: Maxon has discontinued the AC210 AC Adapter. Due to this, the Maxon Vintage series pedals will no longer ship with power supply included. The Maxon Vintage Series Pedals can be run with a standard 9vdc Center Negative Adapter. The PA-9 Power-All is recommended.

TECH TALK:
The DS830's gain section features a dual-stage clipping design that combines the classic "808" clipping (diodes in feedback loop) with a pair of diodes to ground ala' the SD-9 and RAT. This design effectively clips the signal twice, and the round smooth clipping of the feedback loop followed by the edgier diodes to ground adds a degree of "chewiness" to the pedal's voice.

The DS830 features a complex tone control which acts like an active two-band filter by changing the gain of the treble and bass frequencies going into the Op Amp. The Bass and Treble controls are highly interactive and complementary. For example; turning up the Bass doesn't just add low-end, but will also help to smooth out any harshness in the Treble frequencies.

The DS830 features buffered, Mechanical bypass switching with a low impedance output, allowing it to drive long cable lengths or other effect units without loss of signal.

Maxon FA-10 Fuzz Elements Air Ten Series Fuzz Pedal
Cat: 783271 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Fuzz pedal
Notes: The FA10 Fuzz Elements Air accurately recreates the distinctive square wave clipping and octave harmonics of one of history's most desirable dirt boxes, the Super Fuzz.

The original Super Fuzz was created by Shin-Ei, but saw later incarnations under brands such as Apollo, Shaftesbury, JAX, Tiesco, Memphis, and most famously, Univox.

It was used on countless recordings in the late 60's & 70's, most notably the Who classic Live at Leeds. Long out of production, the Super Fuzz saw resurgence in the 90's during the Grunge & Alternative Rock era, appearing on the Beastie Boys' Gratitude, Mudhoney's Big Muff Super Fuzz album and Monster Magnet's stoner-rock classic, Superjudge.

The Super Fuzz used dual germanium diodes and a unique full-wave rectification circuit to produce sizzling upper octave harmonics as well as subtle lower harmonics that filled out the guitar sound.

The FA10's analog circuitry nails the Super Fuzz's crushing, compressed tone with surgical precision, and includes the two position Tone switch to toggle between flat and scooped EQ curves. These settings produce wildly different sounds, offering stark contrast to one another and effectively making the FA10 two pedals in one.

A unique aspect of the FA10 is its ability to reproduce rhythm or lead lines with equal clarity, yet without changing settings on the pedal.

Featuring authentic Vintage tones and modern features, the Fuzz Elements Air is the perfect vehicle to make your playing soar.

Maxon FEA-10 Fuzz Elements Earth Ten Series Fuzz Pedal

Fuzz pedal
Notes: David Gilmour's go-to dirt box, the EH Ram's Head Big Muff helped to define classic rock guitar tone in the 1970's.

The FEA10 Fuzz Elements Earth captures all the grit, grind & girth of that fuzzy fiend in a pedalboard-friendly format that's a fraction of the cost of an original Ram's Head.

Aptly named, Earth is simply massive sounding, with a fat, tight bottom; harmonically rich yet warm top-end; and the subtle yet sublime "sag" that allows notes to smoothly blossom into rapturous, singing sustain.

Like an original Ram's Head, there's simply not a bad sound to be found in this pedal at any control setting - there are merely variations of awesome.

The FEA10's tone was "modeled" on a handful of the best-sounding Ram's Heads from a variety of studios & vintage guitar shops around Tokyo. It could take you years and cost you thousands to seek out vintage units with this level of sound quality and consistency.

Maxon has done the leg work, now all you need to do is plug into Earth and rock!

Maxon FF-10 Fuzz Elements Fire Ten Series Fuzz Pedal
Cat: 783302 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Fuzz pedal
Notes: The AF100 Bee Baa was Roland's answer to the gnarly, nasty guitar boxes coming out of the USA & the UK in the late 60's and early 70's.

A combination of transistor Fuzz, Octavia, and Treble Booster, the Bee Baa's massive metal housing & triple stomp switches provided ample evidence that this pedal was not to be trifled with.

Even Maxon was hard-pressed to reproduce the AF100's might in their compact chassis format. Opting to stick with the Fuzz aspects of the Bee Baa, they decided to leave out the Treble Boost section of the circuit when developing this next Fuzz Elements model.

The FF10 Fire produces two distinctly different yet equally aggressive fuzz tones based on the AF100's signature sounds.

In normal mode, the FF10's three controls can dial in thick & muscular transistor tones akin to a great-sounding Big Muff, but with improved midrange response and superior note clarity & clean-up.

Activating the Notch switch scoops mids & accentuates the upper octave harmonics dramatically, creating sizzling, searing sustained tones that are perfect for lead work.

As on the original AF100, Maxon kept the Notch setting foot switchable, allowing the user to toggle between these two titanic tones in mid-song.

Smaller & less expensive, but just as effective as the original it was inspired by: Fuzz Elements Fire brings the heat.

Maxon FV-10 Fuzz Elements Void Ten Series Fuzz Pedal
Cat: 783304 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Fuzz pedal
Notes: Strangled squeals, cacophonous chords, raucous ring modulations and other amazingly unpredictable mayhem - that's just a sample of what you can expect from the Fuzz Elements FV10 Void.

Designed to emulate the otherworldly sounds of the vintage Ampeg Scrambler, the FV10 circuit is loaded with tons of even-order harmonics to create unique octave/fuzz sounds that are dynamic- and frequency-dependent. This means that the FV10's effect is generated not only by which notes you play, but how you play them!

The FV10's effect is not for the faint of heart - Spongy, strangely synthetic guitar tones that swell up out of the depths of some black Void and then sizzle off into infinity. Octave-up OR octave-down effects can be produced, depending on the position of the controls and the playing position on the neck. Likewise, single notes or chords can both be played, each generating their own unique sounds.

By chaining the FV10 with other distortion devices and adjusting the Blend knob, an entire new range of unique fuzz/distortion effects can be achieved as the FV10's circuit interacts with the complex harmonic content of the other device.

Unlike the original Scrambler, the FV10 features a Level control with a significant volume boost. This allows the user to match the pedal's output level to unity gain or to other effect pedals in their signal chain.

Mechanical True Bypass switching makes certain that all this chaos is kept locked up until you decide to unleash it.

Notes: Manufactured under a myriad of brands, this circuit can be found in the Vox Tonebender Professional MKII, Marshall Supa Fuzz, RotoSound Fuzz Box and the rare Rangemaster Fuzzbug. Yet whatever the name, everyone can agree on one thing - this was the guitar sound of early classic rock.

Perfect for replicating the timeless tones of Beck, Page, & Clapton, the FW10 Fuzz Elements Wind captures all the magic of the original Mk II Tonebender and adds a little modern mojo of its own.

Wind offers an edgy, aggressive tone with plenty of midrange sizzle, yet it cleans up beautifully with your volume knob and offers excellent note definition even with complex chords.

Maxon also added two tweaks to this classic circuit to make it more versatile. First; a Vintage/Hot switch that selects between the Gain level of the original and a higher Gain setting. Vintage serves up 100% Tonebender, while Hot offers more sustain for solos or to drive you amp over the edge.

Wind also features a selectable input buffer that works to provide a more accurate, uncolored recreation of the guitar input signal. In short: It's your sound, just dirtier.

The original Sola Sound Tonebender was used by some the greatest guitar players of the 60s and 70s.

If you're looking to worship at the altar of rock's holy trinity, Fuzz Elements Wind will be your guide.

Maxon GE-601 Graphic Equalizer Reissue Series Pedal
Cat: 783410 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
EQ pedal
Notes: EQ's may not be as sexy as overdrives, but when used properly they can add a wide variety of useful new colors to your existing guitar rig.

The GE601 Graphic Equalizer covers six carefully selected frequency bands over a five octave range with 12 dB of Boost/Cut per band (100, 200, 400 & 800 Hz, 1.6 & 3.2 KHz respectively). There's also a Master Level control with 12 dB of overall Boost/Cut.

Adjusting these controls, the GE601 can be used to fine tune your sound in an infinite variety of ways, a few of which are detailed below:

Pickup Simulator (Humbucker to single coil) - To turn a Humbucker into a Single Coil, cut 200, 400, & 800 Hz and Boost 100 Hz & 1.6 KHz.

Pickup Simulator (passive Bass to active Bass) - Cut 200 Hz and Boost 100 Hz & 1.6 KHz to give a passive Bass the clarity and punch of an active instrument.

Pickup Simulator (single coil to piezo)- Cut 200, 400, & 800 Hz and Boost 100 Hz, 1.6 & 3.2 KHz to make a single coil electric simulate the bright, chiming sound of an acoustic guitar with piezo pickup.

Half-cocked Wah - Boost at 800 Hz to emulate the tone of a wah pedal with the treadle set half-way forward. This setting is also ideal for solo boosts (Adjust Level control to taste).

Clean Booster - Leave all frequency bands flat and boost the Level control to use as a clean booster for solos or to overdrive an amplifier's input. For more output, set all frequency bands to maximum boost.

TECH TALK:
After a low-impedance input buffer, the GE601 splits its signal into 6 parallel EQ bands each powered by its own Op Amp (JRC4558). Through the sweep of the slider you can cut or boost the selected frequency.

Boost is created by feeding the effected signal back into the Op Amp, creating an effect of exponential multiplication of that frequency - the higher the slider, the more of the effected signal is fed back through the EQ Op Amp chain.

The GE601 features buffered, JFET bypass switching with a low impedance output, allowing it to drive long cable lengths or other effect units without loss of signal.

Maxon OD-808 Overdrive Reissue Series Pedal
Cat: 783412 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Overdrive pedal
Notes: Can a pedal be considered a clone if it's made by the company that made the original?!? Maxon designed the original OD808 overdrive circuit in the late 1970's - they then rebranded this pedal for Ibanez as the TS808 Tubescreamer, and the rest is history...

The OD808 Reissue offers up all the warm, creamy, organic overdrive as the original and then some. Never one to rest on their laurels, Maxon has tweaked the current version ever so slightly to reduce noise level while retaining the legendary "808" tone (see Tech Talk below).

The OD808 is the perfect pedal for adding smooth, tube-like overdrive to any clean amp - use it as a secondary dirt channel to beef up a song's chorus section, or keep it on all the time for the crunchy tone that has defined rock and roll.

The OD808 is also ideal for pushing an already overdriven amp over the edge, a la Stevie Ray Vaughan. Hell, stack two of them together like Stevie did and the house is a rockin'! You've never heard - or felt - bluesy goodness like this before.

In recent years the OD808 has been adopted as the overdrive of choice by a generation of guitarists in a most unlikely musical genre - metal.

Turns out that the OD808's mild compression and slight low-end cut are perfect for tightening up high-gain amps; allowing fast note runs to stand out with clarity while making rhythms tight and punchy. Just listen to any recording by Grammy-award winning Producer/Killswitch Engage founder Adam Dutkiewicz to hear how the OD808 has become the voice of a whole new generation of metal guitarists.

The Maxon OD808 - After 40 years it's still being used to reinvent guitar tone as we know it. Reinvent your tone - play the Maxon OD808.

Besides the fact that the Maxon OD808 Reissue sounds richer, warmer, and BETTER than the Ibanez TS808 Reissue, there are also these facts to consider:

Lower noise floor than TS808
Smaller, lighter enclosure
More reliable plunger type switch with soft-click tactile feel
More affordable
TECH TALK
Maxon developed the OD808 circuit more than 40 years ago, and since then it's become the most used, most imitated and most lauded overdrive circuit of all time. While the 808-style overdrive circuit is commonplace nowadays, in 1979 it was a unique design and an industry first.

The secret behind the legendary "808 tone" lies in the amplifier section of the circuit. Rather than having separate amplifier and clipping stages, the OD808 features a signal-distorting diode (Panasonic #MA150) located in the negative feedback loop of the amplifier stage.

The OD808 distorts signal in the amplifier circuit itself which yields a smoother, milder, more natural sounding distortion than a separate clipping stage. This is also the reason that the IC type used in the circuit has such a large impact on the unit's tone. The Reissue uses the correct JRC4558 Op Amp that made the 808 the tone of legend.

It should be noted that the Reissue Series OD808 uses different output resistors than the original version. Vintage TS808's are susceptible to microphonic noise due to static electricity buildup on the chassis. To improve performance, the positions of the output resistors on the reissue OD808 were reversed and their values increased in order to reduce noise levels. This circuit change has no audible affect on the sound of the unit, save for reducing the noise levels.

Maxon OD-9 Overdrive Nine Series Pedal
Cat: 783322 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Overdrive pedal
Notes: While the OD808 may have been the first overdrive circuit of its kind, it was the OD-9 that cemented this sound in the history of Rock & Roll guitar.

Looking at the OD-9's circuit, you'll realize that this is not some redesign being cleverly marketed as a reissue - this is THE original OD-9 (TS-9) circuit, yet with the addition of true bypass switching. Even the PC board is the same one that Maxon's been using for the past 30+ years, complete with empty slots where parts for the FET switching circuit have been left out!

Like the original, the current production OD-9 features the NJM (JRC) 4558D Op Amp - an essential component for authentic "TS" tone. The NJM is smoother sounding and less compressed than other Op Amps, offering superior sound quality with low noise.

The absence of the FET switching circuit gives the OD-9 some added output and a slightly more open sound than the OD808, making it perfect for the classic rock tones that it helped to define.

If your future plans include a meteoric rise to rock & roll stardom, then rely on the legendary tones of the OD-9 to fuel your ascent.

The OD-9 is a true-to-spec reissue of the legendary 1980's OD-9/TS-9 circuit, with the addition of true bypass switching for clean, uncolored tone when bypassed.

TECH TALK:

Input is fed into a 2SC1815 emitter/follower transistor to optimize the signal's impedance structure. From here it's on to the first section of an NJM 4558D Op Amp - NJM is the company formerly known as the Japan Radio Corporation (JRC) - the legendary manufacturer that designed and built tons of these components in the late 70's/early 80's.

In this non-inverting Op Amp there are diodes in the feedback loop that clip the signal gradually as well as a High-Pass filter that keeps low frequencies from being distorted as much as high frequencies - the classic "808" configuration that creates the tone we all know and love.

After this is a passive LP filter and then an active tone stage that uses the other half of the Op Amp to create a HP filter that brings back frequencies cut by the inter-stage LP filter. After the tone stage it's through the volume pot, another E/F 2SC1815 to provide a low impedance output and then the true bypass switch.

The OD-9 features Mechanical True Bypass switching via a Fujisoku 4PDT switch - input signal is sent to ground when bypassed.

Maxon OD-9 PRO+ 	Overdrive Nine Series Pedal
Cat: 783326 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Overdrive pedal
Notes: In 9-volt setting the Pro+ sounds and functions like the standard OD-9 with the added option of a healthy +3 dB of midrange boost at approximately 800 Hz (actual frequency is dependent on Control settings) - great for cutting through a band during solos.

When set to 18-volts the OD-9 Pro+ becomes an 800-pound Gorilla, offering up beefier lows, tighter saturation, improved dynamics and a chunky, aggressive pick attack that will make your amp sound and feel like it just took a Viagra. Switch on the Mid Boost in this mode and let your solos breathe fire.

Don't just play like the pros - play with the Pro Plus.

The Nine Series Overdrive Pro+ takes Maxon's classic OD-9 circuit and serves it up with two side orders of Whoop-Ass in the form of 9/18 volt operation and a Mid Boost switch.

TECH TALK:

The OD-9 Pro+ starts with a jFET buffer which simultaneously offers high input impedance and low impedance into the rest of the pedal - this helps to preserve high-end clarity in the signal.

The first tone stage is the Mid Boost feature: A switchable Op Amp with clipping diodes in the feedback loop. When this stage is not in the signal path the pedal behaves like a standard OD9. With this stage in the path it adds subtle gain and definition to the sound, similar to a cascading gain stage.

From here it's on to the standard OD-9 circuitry: A clipping Op Amp with diodes in the feedback loop that clip the signal gradually as well as a high pass filter that keep the low frequencies from being distorted as much as high. Next there comes a passive LP filter and then an active tone stage. After the tone stage it's through the Volume pot, an Op Amp boost stage which bumps the signal 3X and then sends it to the output.

The Pro+ also utilizes an NJM2374A voltage conversion chip that changes the 9V power input into 9V+ and 9V-, increasing the headroom of the Op Amps (9V to 18V swing) and giving a bigger, chunkier sound to the overdrive.

The OD-9 Pro+ features Mechanical True Bypass switching via a Fujisoku 4PDT switch - Input is switched to ground when bypassed.

NOTE ON POWERING THE OD-9 Pro+ - this pedal's voltage regulator IC requires a high inrush current of approximately 2000 mA upon startup. When using with a Power Brick such as the Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2+, this pedal should be connected to a high current power jack when possible

If it is not possible to connect to a high current jack, you can power the OD-9 Pro+ by leaving a battery in the pedal. Upon initial start-up, unplug the external DC power input cable, engage the pedal, and then plug the DC power input cable back in - the pedal will now power up normally off the external power supply until you power down your pedalboard.

Maxon OOD-9 Organic Overdrive Nine Series Pedal
Cat: 783327 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Oerdrive pedal
Notes: Offering the same warm, open-sounding overdrive as the OSD-9 but with a more pronounced high-frequency response, the OOD-9 is perfect for "livening up" a dark-sounding guitar or amp.

The OOD-9 reacts smoothly to input level changes, offering a highly interactive response to player dynamics. Perfect as a stand-alone dirt box or for pushing an amp, the OOD-9 can also be stacked with other OD's to add clarity and character to their tone.

The OOD-9 offers up all these classic sounds in Maxon's indestructible, industry standard 9-Series chassis. Modern-day utility features such as mechanical true bypass switching and a voltage regulator have also been added to provide smooth, consistent performance.

Providing mild, transparent overdrive that doesn't step all over your original tone, the OOD-9 Organic Overdrive truly lives up to its name.

The OOD-9 takes Maxon's resurrected OSD-9 circuit and replaces the NOS 741 Op Amps with current-production NJM (JRC) 4558's.

TECH TALK:
The OOD-9 signal path starts with a 2SK246 jFET buffer which provides a high input impedance and low output impedance into the 1st Op Amp - a NJM (JRC) 4558. This 1st Op Amp is set up to provide a 20 to 120x gain in signal.

After the 1st Op Amp we have a pair of diodes to ground, just like classic boxes such as the MXR Distortion+, Pro Co Rat and Boss DS-1. From here it's into another NJM4558 with an amplification factor of 10 to boost the signal back to a high enough level to drive the input of an amplifier if necessary - a feature that the Dist+ and DS-1 do not offer.

From here the signal is routed to a 4558 Op Amp unity gain amplifier, a volume control voltage divider, and then another unity gain 4558 to provide a low impedance output.

The OOD-9 uses a NJM2374A Voltage converter to stabilize the operating voltage at 9 VDC regardless of the voltage level coming off the battery, providing a smoother, more consistent operation and tonality.

The OOD-9 features Mechanical True Bypass switching via a Fujisoku 4PDT switch - the input of circuit is switched to ground when bypassed.

NOTE ON POWERING THE OOD-9 - this pedal's voltage regulator IC requires a high inrush current of approximately 2000 mA upon startup. When using with a Power Brick such as the Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2+, this pedal should be connected to a high current power jack when possible.

If it is not possible to connect to a high current jack, you can power the OOD-9 by leaving a battery in the pedal. Upon initial start-up, unplug the external DC power input cable, engage the pedal, and then plug the DC power input cable back in - the pedal will now power up normally off the external power supply until you power down your pedalboard.

Maxon OSD-9 OD Soft Distortion Nine Series Pedal
Cat: 783330 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Distortion pedal
Notes: In 1977 Maxon released their first effect pedal - the OD880 Overdrive/Soft Distortion - and the world would never be the same.

Employing a passive distortion circuit based around the 741 Op Amp (also used in the popular DOD 250), the OD880 was coveted for its warm and natural overdrive tone. The 880 was perfect for use as a transparent booster to take a tube-amp over the edge, offering singing blues tones unrivaled by other boxes.

Japanese guitar legend Char made the OD880 famous as his booster-of-choice, causing original versions to skyrocket into the $600 range on the vintage market.

In the early 90's Maxon reissued a limited edition run of the OD880. Yet with no distribution outside of Japan, this model went largely unnoticed by the rest of the world, leaving its amazing tone a secret to all save the discerning collector.

Now Maxon has once again resurrected the OD880 in the form of the OSD-9 Overdrive/Soft Distortion.

The OSD-9 offers a warm, open-sounding overdrive with a mild high-end roll off. It reacts smoothly to input level changes, offering a highly interactive response to player dynamics. Perfect as a stand-alone dirt box or for pushing an amp, the OSD-9 can also be stacked with other OD's to add clarity and character to their tone.

The OSD offers up all these classic sounds in Maxon's indestructible, industry standard 9-Series chassis. Modern-day utility features such as mechanical true bypass switching and a voltage regulator have also been added to provide smooth, consistent performance.

Over 30 years after the original OD880 was released, the OSD-9 promises to bestow the legendary tones of its predecessor upon a new generation of discerning players - are you ready?

TECH TALK:
The OSD-9 signal path starts with a 2SK246 jFET buffer which provides high input impedance and low output impedance into the 1st Op Amp - a UA741CP. The UA741CP is a vintage style 741 single Op Amp with superior resistance to latching up (distorting in a non-musical way) - it is not as "precise" as modern IC's, giving it a more vintage, warmer, "analog-ish" response.

This 1st Op Amp is set up to provide a 20 to 120x gain in signal.

After the 1st Op Amp we have a pair of diodes to ground, just like classic boxes such as the MXR Distortion+, Pro Co Rat and Boss DS-1. From here it's into another UA741CP with an amplification factor of 10 to boost the signal back to a high enough level to drive the input of an amplifier if necessary - a feature that the Distortion+ and DS-1 do not offer.

From here the signal is routed to a 4558 Op Amp unity gain amplifier, a volume control voltage divider, and then another unity gain 4558 to provide a low impedance output.

The OSD-9 uses a NJM2374A Voltage converter to stabilize the operating voltage at 9 VDC regardless of the voltage level coming off the battery, providing a smoother, more consistent operation and tonality.

Maxon PAC-9 Pure Analog Chorus Nine Series Pedal
Cat: 783332 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Analog chorus pedal
Notes: The PAC-9's internal voltage-doubling circuitry provides maximum headroom to eliminate input distortion. The higher operating voltage also allows it to be used in an FX loop to place the chorus effect post-gain.

"The Maxon PAC-9 provides a large range of great chorus sounds with completely silent operation. I had never used choruses before this one, as they often resulted in tones that sounded overly processed for my personal taste. This one allows for lovely subtlety, and is rugged and straight-forward to use." - Gretchen Menn

A new spin on an old classic, the PAC-9 brings classic 80's chorusing into the 21st century with modern features and improved sound quality.

The first thing you'll notice when you step on the PAC-9 is a beefy, full-bodied chorusing that punches you directly in the chest - gone are the thin, hissy, sissified chorus tones of yesteryear, replaced instead by a full-frequency effect that simply sounds massive.

TECH TALK:
NOTE ON POWERING THE PAC-9 - this pedal's voltage regulator IC requires a high inrush current of approximately 2000 mA upon startup. When using with a Power Brick such as the Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2+, this pedal should be connected to a high current power jack when possible.

Maxon PT-999 Phase Tone Phaser Reissue Series Pedal
Cat: 783418 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Phaser pedal
Notes: With its single knob, the PT999 Phase Tone looks deceptively simple. Yet packed into this tiny blue box is a host of the most authentic 70's-era phasing effects available in a current production unit.

The secret behind the PT999's timeless tone lies in the fact that its circuit is exactly the same as it was when first introduced in 1974. While many "reissue" effects are far from true to the original designs, Maxon has taken great pains to keep the Phase Tone unchanged for close to 45 years.

By adjusting the lone Rate control, a wide variety of expressive phasing nuances can be coaxed from the PT999 - all of them whisper quiet and amazingly transparent. Its minimalist circuit doesn't get in the way of your guitar tone - it simply accentuates it, working equally well to spice up clean or distorted sounds.

If you demand classic phase shifting effects without compromising your guitar's signature tone, the PT999 Phase Tone has no equals.

The PT999 is the easiest way to replicate classic 70's phasing tones without dropping $300-500 (or more!) for a vintage Phase 90.

TECH TALK:
The PT999's four-stage phasing circuit offers 720 degrees of phasing sweep variable from .2 to 14 Hz (cycles per second). The PT999's FET's (Toshiba #2SK246) are carefully sorted and matched by hand to produce the smoothest phasing sweep possible with low noise. Unlike some phasers, the PT999 runs negative feedback of the signal to each phase-shifting FET for less signal distortion.

The four-pole shift of the PT999 creates a chewy, organic phase with a subtle drive to the signal. The 4 phasing Op Amps work together to emphasize this phase point, as each successive one accentuates the notch of the previous, creating a very resonant effect. The subtle drive and resonance really bring out pick attack and add a degree of real, dirty dimensionality.

Internal trimmers adjust center frequency and width of the phasing sweep (factory calibrated, we recommend adjustment of these trimmers be left to a qualified technician).

The PT999 features buffered, JFET bypass switching with a low impedance output, allowing it to drive long cable lengths or other effect units without loss of signal.

Maxon SD-9 Sonic Distortion Nine Series Pedal
Cat: 783334 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Distortion pedal
Notes: Maxon's current-production reissue captures all the magic of the original with the added benefit of true bypass switching.

The SD-9 provides a smooth distortion that covers a wide range of Gain levels from mild overdrive through pseudo-fuzz. Regardless of the Gain setting, the SD-9 remains articulate and responsive to note dynamics, providing excellent sustain without crossing over into super-compressed Metal territory.

The SD-9's Tone knob has plenty of top end on tap, yet notes still retain a round, full-bodied tonality with the low end presence usually associated with amp distortion. The pedal's midrange response is smooth and even - present without seeming spiked.

Since its humble origins to its current place in the pedalboards of the stars, the Maxon Sonic Distortion has proven itself to be a timeless classic that has only improved with age.

Since its original release in the early 80's the Sonic Distortion has gained a huge cult following among tone connoisseurs, including the likes of guitar legends Scott Henderson and Mike Landau.

"The Maxon SD-9 is the best distortion pedal EVER made, period. It has the clarity and punch you get from a pedal, while retaining the low bass you get with amp distortion. The SD-9 is one of the rare pedals which sound equally great on both the neck and bridge pickups, whether they're humbucking or single coil. It's been a very important part of my tone for many years." - Scott Henderson

TECH TALK:
Input signal goes through a simple High-Pass filter into a transistor that's set up as an emitter/follower (high input impedance - low output impedance). After this it's into an Op Amp stage designed to give a gain range of 67 to 567and a Low-Pass Filter with a corner frequency of approximately 1540 Hz.

From here it's on to a set of opposing-direction diodes to ground and a tone control that is reminiscent of the Boss DS-1 (kind of a Big Muff dual High and Low cut - ending up with a mid scoop that has a high frequency limiting resistor with corner frequencies of 867Hz and 234Hz respectively).

The SD-9's dual diodes to ground give a crunchier, chewier distortion than the popular 808-style "diodes in feedback loop" configuration. Likewise, the SD-9's mid scoop is practically the antithesis of the 808's infamous mid hump.

After the tone control section it's through to a volume control and into another E/F transistor to provide a low impedance output and then on to the true bypass switch.

The SD-9 features Mechanical True Bypass switching via a Fujisoku 4PDT switch - Input is switched to ground when bypassed.

Maxon SM-9 PRO+	Super Metal Distortion Nine Series Pedal
Cat: 783351 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Distortion pedal
Notes: Over the past 10 years Maxon effects have become key ingredients in the guitar rigs of countless metal bands. Notable artists such as Killswitch Engage, Arch Enemy, Shadows Fall and All That Remains have come to rely on Maxon overdrives for their brutal guitar tones on stage and in the studio.

The irony here (pun intended) is that Maxon has never offered a pedal tailored to the needs of the metal guitarist - until now.

Introducing the Maxon SM-9 Pro+ Super Metal - specifically designed for high-gain distortion tones, the SM-9's flexible saturation circuit can churn out everything from classic NWOBHM crunch through to the throaty chunk of today's drop-tuned metal extremes.

Developing such a pedal was no easy task, and the Pro+ was on the drawing board for years before Maxon felt it was ready for release. Several unique "tricks" were incorporated into its design to create a pedal that is as versatile as it is merciless.

Forgoing the use of conventional tone controls, the SM-9 instead features Scoop and Edge knobs to dial in the riffage.

The Scoop control is a mid-band elimination filter with a range from 200 Hz - 2 KHz. This control adjusts the frequency range where the pedal's midrange cut is centered.

Once the amount of mid scoop is determined, any high-end loss can be dialed back in using the Edge control - a Hi-cut shelving filter continuously variable between 2-15 kHz.

These two controls are highly interactive and work much like a parametric equalizer - Adjusting both knobs simultaneously allows the user to find the perfect mix of brutality and clarity.

The SM-9's Gain control adjusts the degree of saturation the pedal provides. This control is actually a dual-ganged pot that increases the amount of distortion while simultaneously boosting the upper midrange band up to 20 dB at 1 kHz.

By boosting and cutting specific frequency bands in relation to Gain, the SM-9's controls allow the user to sculpt brutal, beefy guitar tones that retain note clarity and definition.

The Pro+ also offers switchable 9- or 18-volt operation. In Classic mode, the SM-9 runs at the incoming 9 volts DC, greatly extending battery life. Switching to stabilized 18-volt operation increases headroom, frequency range, and dynamic response of the pedal.

Using the SM-9's controls and voltage options, an almost unlimited variety of monstrous high-gain tones can be dialed in. Whether you're a full-time metal maniac or just need the occasional "nuclear blast" without the bulk or volume of a full stack, the Maxon SM-9 Pro + Super Metal will deliver the goods.

The SM-9 Pro+ offers all the might and majesty of a high-gain amp stack at a fraction of the size and cost.

TECH TALK:
The SM-9 Pro+ features Mechanical True Bypass switching via a Fujisoku 4PDT switch.

NOTE ON POWERING THE SM-9 Pro+ - this pedal's voltage regulator IC requires a high inrush current of approximately 2000 mA upon startup. When using with a Power Brick such as the Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2+, this pedal should be connected to a high current power jack when possible.

If it is not possible to connect to a high current jack, you can power the SM-9 by leaving a battery in the pedal. Upon initial start-up, unplug the external DC power input cable, engage the pedal, and then plug the DC power input cable back in - the pedal will now power up normally off the external power supply until you power down your pedalboard.

Maxon ST-9 PRO+ Super Tube Overdrive Nine Series Pedal
Cat: 783354 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Overdrive pedal
Notes: Bigger, Badder, Bolder - these are the best three words to describe the ST-9 Pro+ Super Tube. The latest and possibly last incarnation of Maxon's legendary 808, the ST-9 features more output, more gain, and more tonal options for the player who simply needs - well, MORE.

Starting with a circuit loosely based on the classic 808 architecture, the ST-9 adds a Mid Enhance knob to control the amount of midrange boost. This knob functions similarly to an amp's presence control, boosting perceived volume and gain as it's turned up.

You may be wondering why an 808-style pedal would need more presence - introducing the ST-9's Low Boost switch.

The Low Boost switch is the ST-9's secret weapon - This unassuming switch completely changes the character of the pedal, adding beefy low end and increased saturation via a LP filter and an alternate set of clipping diodes.

If this wasn't enough, the ST-9 also offers 9- or 18-volt operation via an internal charge pump. Run at 9 for the classic 808 sound and feel or switch to 18 for increased headroom, improved dynamics, and a bigger, chunkier tone to the overdrive.

From bluesy overdrive to diabolical dirt box, the ST-9 is a devilishly diverse pedal that can punish a clean amp or turn a dirty amp into a wall of doom.

The OD808 re-imagined with increased output level, additional saturation and a more diverse palette of tonal options.

TECH TALK:
Input signal goes to a 2SK246 jFET buffer that provides a high input impedance and low output impedance into the 1st Op Amp, a NJM (JRC) 4558D. This 1st 4558 is set up as a tweakable mid boost, with a potentiometer controlling the gain of the boost. The signal goes from the mid boost Op Amp to the second clipping Op Amp, which is set up for a 10 to 110x gain with switchable sets of diodes in the feedback loop and a switchable capacitor to boost bass.

After the clipping Op Amp the signal is routed to an 808-style tone control and unity gain amplifier, after which the signal is passed through a volume potentiometer, another unity gain amplifier (to provide low output impedance) and then the true bypass switch. The use of these unity gain amplifiers helps to preserve high end in the signal which can be lost when passing through the volume control.

The ST9 Pro+ uses an NJM2374A Voltage converter to double the 9V input to 18 VDC, providing more clean headroom before the Op Amps distort. The ST9 circuit is switchable between 9 and 18VDC via an internal switch.

The ST-9 Pro+ features Mechanical True Bypass switching via a Fujisoku 4PDT switch - the input of circuit is switched to ground when bypassed.

NOTE ON POWERING THE ST-9 Pro+ - this pedal's voltage regulator IC requires a high inrush current of approximately 2000 mA upon startup. When using with a Power Brick such as the Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2+, this pedal should be connected to a high current power jack when possible.

Maxon TBO-9 True Tube Booster/Overdrive Nine Series Pedal
Cat: 783397 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Booster/overdrive pedal
Notes: The TBO-9 combines Clean Boost and Overdrive capabilities with a tube gain stage to create a versatile tone-shaping tool.

The ideal complement to non-master volume tube amps, the TBO allows you to drive a clean or semi-clean amp to the breaking point, giving it that "on 10" tonality at a much lower volume level and without altering the amp's signature tone.

The TBO-9's tube stage is controlled by the Boost knob which adds a fat, warm bottom end with a slight mid bump as it increases the output level.

The Drive knob blends clean and distorted signals, allowing the user to dial in a small amount of grit with minimal coloration.

The TBO-9 features internal voltage doublers that bump the incoming 9 VDC up to 30 VDC for massive headroom and maximum transparency.

When you need to drive your amp without driving the audience towards the door, the TBO-9 does the job without commanding the center stage.

The TBO-9 is the perfect complement to non-master volume tube amps, boosting level and drive while retaining maximum transparency.

TECH TALK:
The basic TBO-9 circuit architecture is very similar to the Maxon OD820, including the dual-function Drive pot that blends clean and dirty signals while increasing saturation.

The circuit starts with a tube gain stage featuring a mil-spec 5703WB JAN Raytheon sub-miniature vacuum tube positioned at the front of the audio path. This tube stage does not provide any distortion, with the exception of overdriving the input of the clipping op amp.

After the tube gain stage, the TBO's secondary gain section features a dual-stage clipping design that combines the classic "808" clipping (diodes in feedback loop) with a pair of diodes to ground ala' the SD-9 and RAT. This design effectively clips the signal twice, and the round smooth clipping of the feedback loop followed by the edgier diodes to ground adds a slight "chewiness" to the pedal's overdrive voice.

The TBO-9 features internal voltage doublers that bump the incoming 9 VDC up to 30 VDC for stable tone with massive headroom and zero harmonic distortion.

The TBO also features Maxon's In-Rush Current Control system - As soon as power is applied to the pedal, a small current is applied to the tube and begins heating it at a very low voltage (much like a tube amp standby switch) - This system dramatically extends the tube life.

The TBO-9 features Mechanical True Bypass switching via a Fujisoku 4PDT switch.

NOTE ON POWERING THE TBO-9 - this pedal's voltage regulator IC requires a high inrush current of approximately 2000 mA upon startup. When using with a Power Brick such as the Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2+, this pedal should be connected to a high current power jack when possible.

Maxon TOD-9 True Tube Overdrive Nine Series Pedal
Cat: 783395 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Overdrive pedal
Notes: The TOD-9 takes Maxon's classic OD-9 circuit and adds a tube gain stage at the front end to create an ultra-compact, tube-driven tone machine.

The Maxon OD-9 circuit has achieved a legendary status among tone connoisseurs as the ultimate tool for driving a tube amp. Yet sometimes you need that little "something extra," and the TOD-9 provides this missing ingredient in spades.

The TOD features a mil-spec 5703WB JAN Raytheon sub-miniature vacuum tube complete with its own separate Gain control (Tube knob). This tube stage is positioned at the front of the audio path, driving the OD-9 circuit.

With the Tube knob at zero, the TOD sounds exactly like an OD-9. Engage this control and experience the unmistakable magic of tube tone - a big, FAT, natural-sounding bottom end and the characteristic tube "sag" that makes lead lines sing.

With the Drive knob down, the Tube knob will add warmth and dimension to your tone. With Drive knob up you'll get all this extra girth as well as increased saturation as the tube drives the clipping stage of the pedal.

If big, warm tube tones are your bag, the TOD-9 offers them up in a familiar package that continues to withstand the tests of time.

The TOD-9 provides all the classic tonality of the Maxon OD-9 with the ability to blend in Tube-generated warmth and additional saturation.

Maxon VJR-9 Vintage Jet Riser Flanger Nine Series Pedal
Cat: 783398 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Flanger/noise pedal
Notes: Designed in homage to classic 70's distortion modulators such as the Flying Pan and Jetlyzer (both of which Maxon designed and built for Ibanez), the VJR-9 Vintage Jet Riser creates a Doppler jet effect so realistic you can almost feel the wind in your hair.

Rather than sticking with the old-school Jet design of phase shifter into distortion, the VJR-9 features an analog Bucket-Brigade Flanger as the modulation source to add a more realistic depth of field to the effect. Speed and Width controls allow adjustment of the flanging from slow takeoff to sonic boom.

In similar fashion, Maxon has forgone the use of a distortion circuit in favor of a voltage-controlled white noise generator to more accurately simulate the sound of a jet in flight. Featuring a combination of VCA and VCF circuits, the VJR-9's Jet effect reacts to playing dynamics within a range preset by the Sensitivity, Range and Jet controls.

These two circuits can be used separately or in combination to create a wide variety of effects from subtle to extreme - classic chorus and flanging; tremolo-like auto-wah; massive sky-is-falling Jet sweeps; bizarre and other-worldly metallic tones bordering on ring-modulation - all these and more are possible with the VJR-9.

The VJR-9 also features a jack to connect an external switch (bypass or momentary) for the Jet function, allowing the user to add the effect in against the Flange when desired to accentuate certain note, phrases, or song sections.

The VJR-9's internal voltage-doubling circuitry provides maximum headroom to eliminate input distortion. The higher operating voltage also allows it to be used in an FX loop in order to place the effect post-gain.

The Maxon VJR-9 Vintage Jet Riser - get ready for takeoff.

The VJR-9 is an updated version of vintage FL-70 Jetlyzer with added features and superior performance.

Maxon VOP-9 Vintage OD Pro Clean Booster/Overdrive Nine Series Pedal
Cat: 783400 Rel: 02 Oct 20
 
Clean booster/overdrive pedal
Notes: It's difficult to put into words what makes the VOP-9 stand out from other OD pedals. In the simplest terms, it accentuates the connection between your guitar and amp rather than getting in the way of it.

The VOP makes your fingers feel like they are working effortlessly - notes jump off the fretboard with vibrant, singing sustain and even the most subtle picking nuance is reproduced with exacting dynamic accuracy.

The VOP has a warm, smooth tone without the "fizziness" or mid-spike associated with many solid state pedals. It offers a tight, punchy bottom end with just a hint of mild compression and works equally well with clean or distorted amps to produce a rich, velvety guitar tone.

Based on Maxon's legendary "808" circuit, the VOP-9 has a few hidden tricks in the design that set it apart from your ordinary overdrive.

The VOP-9 features an internal charge pump that allows it to run at 9 or 18 volts. In 9 volt setting the VOP reacts more like a traditional overdrive, while the 18-volt setting it offers increased headroom and a fuller frequency response for a more expressive, dynamic effect.

While most overdrive's pass some degree of clean signal, the VOP-9 allows you to control the amount via the dual-function Drive knob - a dual-ganged pot that controls the amount of Gain as well as the mix between clean and distorted signals.

At zero Drive setting the VOP can function as a completely clean booster, perfect for boosting solos or driving a distorted amp.

Whether you're looking for the ultimate blues tone or that added push to take your solos over the top, the VOP-9 will bring your sound to life.

Over the years the VOP-9 has been the go-to overdrive for many exceptional guitarists including Scott Henderson, Dave Weiner, Jeff Loomis, Doug Rappoport, and Stuart Ziff.

Used by Dave Weiner (Steve Vai Band, GIT Instructor), Doug Rappoport (Edgar Winter, Rick Derringer, Kim Simmonds GIT Instructor).

The VOP-9 was designed with the seasoned guitarist in mind, yet it can be a great addition to any player's rig.

TECH TALK:
The VOP circuit is basically a hot-rodded 808 with a few special tricks. After a JFET input buffer, the signal is sent a dual-gang Drive pot where it is split between a clean gain stage and the overdrive stage. As the Drive knob is turned up, more signal is sent to the overdrive stage while the drive of this stage is also turned up. If the Drive knob is turned down, more signal is sent to the clean gain stage and the drive of the overdrive stage is turned down. At 12 o'clock on the Drive knob, signal is split 50/50 clean/overdriven.

The VOP-9 features a standard 808-style tone control. However, the entire pedal is running at 18 volts via an internal voltage doubler that bumps up the clean headroom and provides greater output and a fuller frequency response than the typical 808 circuit - in other words, no midrange spike!

Even though the VOP circuit is running at 18 volts, it powers up off standard 9 VDC via battery or a standard external power adaptor.

The VOP-9 features Mechanical True Bypass switching via a Fujisoku 4PDT switch.

NOTE ON POWERING THE VOP-9 - this pedal's voltage regulator IC requires a high inrush current of approximately 2000 mA upon startup. When using with a Power Brick such as the Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2+, this pedal should be connected to a high current power jack when possible.
