Product Details
MAXAD9PRO Maxon 9 Series Analog Delay Pro Pedal

The new 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.

MAXCP9PRO+ Maxon 9 Series Vintage Analog Delay Pedal

The Maxon CP-9 Pro+ Compressor pedal is the newest offering in the Maxon Nine Series.
Much more than a reissue, the Maxon CP-9 Pro Plus is a completely new circuit that packs more punch and power than the original!
It's often touted by professional musicians as one of the best compressor pedals money can buy.

Featuring patented low-noise DBX compression technology with Threshold, Ratio, and Gain controls, the Maxon CP-9 Pro+ offers up to 30 dB of clean gain boost with a 10:1 maximum compression ratio.
Reduction status LED accurately displays compression effect while 18-volt circuitry provides maximum head room with ultra-low noise operation and full-frequency response for use with any instrument.
TBS switching with 4PDT switch assures quiet, transparent operation in bypassed. Simply put, the last compressor you'll ever need to buy!

MAXCS9 Maxon 9 Series Stereo Chorus Pro

The all-new Maxon CS-9 Pro offers dramatic improvements over the standard CS-9. In addition to Rate and Depth controls, the Maxon CS-9 Pro features a Delay Time control that allows for a vast array of interesting spatial effects. Dry Blend control allows mixing of dry and effected signals to further increase tonal options while maintaining unity gain. True Stereo outputs allow for mono, stereo, or inverted mono signal routing. The Maxon CS-9 Pro uses the Panasonic MN3207 BBD IC chip for the ultimate analog chorus effect.

MAXOD9 Maxon 9 Series Overdrive Pedal

The Maxon OD-9 may look just like your old favorite, but that's where the similarities end. With improved circuitry, the OD-9 stands at the forefront of the Nine Series effects evolution. The OD-9 uses a signal-distorting diode (Panasonic #MA150) that is located in the amplifier stage's negative feedback loop (this stage also contains the JRC4558 IC chip). Therefore, the OD-9 distorts signal in the amplifier section 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. Maxon developed this unique design more than 20 years ago, an industry first that is commonplace today. The OD-9's new circuit uses different output resistors than its predecessor. After the unit's initial release it was discovered to have a high susceptibility to noise due to static electricity buildup. To improve performance, the values of the output resistors on the OD-9 were increased, but their positions kept the same as the original. This circuit change has no audible affect on the sound of the unit, save for reducing unwanted noise levels. In addition, the OD-9 features True Bypass Switching for natural, uncompromised tone in bypass. Like the OD808, the OD-9 provides the natural, mild overdrive of a tube amp without sacrificing the guitar's original tone. It can also be used as a clean booster to provide increased gain from an amplifier.

MAXOD9PRO+ Maxon 9 Series Overdrive Pro+

It's with great pride that Maxon introduces the OD-9 Pro Plus Overdrive Pedal. At long last, an overdrive unit that meets and exceeds the demands of the market and deservedly takes its place beside the legendary 808. While developing the OD-9 Pro Plus, Maxon enlisted the help of an advisory board of professional guitarists to create a new classic overdrive pedal.

Starting with the basic OD-9 circuit, the Maxon OD-9 Pro Plus adds a low-noise NEC uPC4570 OP-Amp in the output stage that allows for less compression and a more balanced frequency response. Increased Output level and true undistorted signal at zero Drive are further benefits of this component swap.

The Maxon OD-9 Pro Plus offers a switchable Boost feature that bumps the midrange by +3dB, and the overdrive level by +10dB, creating a thicker, slightly compressed overdrive tone. Bright, Singing sustained notes and improved harmonic response are further benefits of this new feature. If you always felt that the OD-9 was a bit anemic, the Pro+ Boost Mode is just what the doctor ordered.

The Pro Plus also features the addition of a stabilized DC-DC voltage converter in the power circuit of the Pro+. This voltage converter bumps 9 volts up to 18 volts, offering a much wider dynamic range and increased head room. Operating voltage is switchable between 9 and 18 volts, offering a choice between the classic OD-9 pedal tone and this newer, full-frequency tone.

The Maxon OD-9 Pro Plus Pedal features True Mechanical Bypass switching courtesy of a 4PDT switch. With the combination of these new features and circuitry, the Maxon OD-9 Pro Plus effectively functions as a 4-voiced monster, offering everything from the classic, bluesy tones of the original 808 to the searing saturated chunk demanded by today's extreme metal music.

MAXSD9 Maxon 9 Series Sonic Distortion Pedal

One of Maxon's most esoteric models, the SD-9 has gained a huge cult following since its initial release in the early 1980s. The SD-9 has long been prized for its ability to provide an immense range of distorted tones, from punchy overdrive to blistering fuzz, all with full-frequency response and minimal tonal coloration. The secret to the SD-9's versatility lies in its minimal component configuration. The circuit itself is deceptively simple, but it's this simplicity that leads to the SD-9's transparent operation. With fewer components to load down your guitar's tone, more "sonic information" is passed to the output, yielding a more authentic reproduction of your guitar sound. But don't let its simplicity fool you the SD-9 can provide a whopping 42 dB of gain, more than enough to provide a healthy solo boost or to slam the front end of your amp into submission. Anther notable feature of the SD-9 is its tone control. While most other overdrives and distortions feature hi boost/hi cut tone circuits, the SD-9 tone control uses a low range boost/cut circuit for added bottom end. In addition, the SD-9's tone circuit features the JRC4558 IC chip, generally regarded as sonically superior to other op amp models. The combination of these two elements creates a pedal with more low-end punch than other distortions. Versatile, powerful and responsive - the SD-9 is perfect for the player looking to get more than just distortion out of their distortion pedal.

MAXST9PRO+ Maxon 9 Series Super Tube Pro Plus

A salute to the rare and highly collectible ''Super Tube Screamer'' from the 1980's, the new Maxon Overdrive ST-9 Pro+ Super Tube takes the basic design elements of that coveted vintage model and brings them into the 21st century.
Loosely based on Maxon's classic ''808'' circuit, the ST-9 Pro+ Overdrive Pedal offers a dedicated midrange control that varies the amount of Midrange boost, creating powerful, fat and heavy distortion sounds akin to a full stack amplifier.
A mode switch to select from two different diode types allows the user to fine-tune the ST-9 Pro+ for use with single coils or humbuckers, while switchable 9- or 18-volt operation provides increased dynamic headroom and fuller frequency response.
When you're ready to step beyond the standard overdrive, the ST-9 Pro+ Super Tube OD Pedal is the only choice for the discerning overdrive connoisseur.
