About this deal

Damages caused by accident, abuse, alteration, or misuse are not covered by this warranty. Product appearance and normal "wear and tear" (worn paint, scratches, etc.) are not covered by this warranty. I pretty much use this ON during all the times so I get teh most out of my distortion sound, but it could also be used as a booster just for leads and solos, giving you more compression, sustain and grip to the sound. 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. Its hard to explain exactly why..but there is a singing musical quality in the tone which I don't remember my Ibanez TS-9 in the '90's having to just the same extent!.....its a very natural pedal to play..and thats one thing about it,you can really play it,not just stomp on it and it seems to work with you and co-operate with your intentions....I'm fortunate to have acquired some nice old guitars over the years and whether its with PAF,original Fender Wide Range,P90's,Fender Tele and Strat single coils it always seems to bring out the best...I've yet to find a guitar or amp it won't work beautifully with... Its relatively expensive compared to most non-boutique pedals but worth every cent...buy this and you won't need another tubescreamer type though you might still use a Boss SD ...

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 1979 Nisshin Onpa developed the legendary Ibanez™ Tube Screamer TS-808 overdrive, while also selling it under their own brand in Japan as the Maxon OD-808 Overdrive. This pedal became a worldwide success and was seen on pedal boards everywhere. Stevie Ray Vaughan used two of them in series on his board, plus other famous guitarists like Gary Moore, Eric Clapton, Santana, Rory Gallagher, Steve Stevens and Marty Friedman, just to mention a few, were using it too. The NJM is smoother sounding and less compressed than other Op Amps, offering superior sound quality with low noise. The OD808 has the traditional buffers, however Maxon has deviated from the 808 formula by changing the two output resistors to reduce noise levels. The result is that the new values make the OD808 electronically identical to an original TS9, rather than a TS808. The Maxon OD9 includes an exact replica of the printed circuit TS9 of the time but it also includes a Tru Bypass, which explains the absence of certain components because their functions are managed by the DPDT switch (it is good tps is a bit interested in electronics before distort the notice of beliefs).

For fun and dsamorer few ideas reues sulfates one day OD-9 comparative (or TS-9) with an Ibanez TS-7. 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. TECH TALK: Eventually, the commercial relationship between the two firms grew stronger in the 1970s, to a point where Hoshino Gakki (owner of the Ibanez™ brand) became Nisshin Onpa’s most important client. In 1979 Nisshin Onpa developed the legendary Ibanez™ Tube Screamer TS-808 overdrive, while also selling it under their own brand in Japan as the Maxon OD-808 Overdrive. This pedal became a worldwide success and was seen on pedal boards everywhere. Stevie Ray Vaughan used two of them in series on his board, plus other famous guitarists like Gary Moore, Eric Clapton, Santana, Rory Gallagher, Steve Stevens and Marty Friedman, just to mention a few, were using it too. Even the pedal Ibanez TS9 to. Maxon IBANEZ manufactured the pedal and finally decided to leave under its own brand. In addition it is cheaper! hehe! General Setup could not be more simple and less original. For players to tap a little hardened, turn the knobs with your feet is as difficult as a boss, it will teach you, you bunch of lazy.

Potentiomtres three and a switch: four reasons to read the manual. Seriously, the manual is clear (although in English) but we can manage without aisment. Ibanez still markets Tube Screamers of its own, although they’re no longer made by Maxon. Externally, the Maxon OD-9 is a dead ringer for the Ibanez TS9, but the OD808 has more generic cosmetics.

Previously I was using a 193 m mxr gt-od overdrive that does not really satisfy me. I was looking for a slightly warmer and vintage sound. I found my happiness with the Maxon. I compared to the Maxon history, the one with the old style guitar (they both have the circuit JRC4558IC, it seems that the Grail is that thing), I preferred this one, had my vintage snobbery suffer ... It is less sweet and a little wider spectrum found, but it has to play fourth-hair calf ant. LED Power/Battery Life Indicator - Ultra bright LED indicates effect status (on/off). Dim or no LED indicates that the battery is low or not installed. AC/DC Power Operation - Power using 9-volt battery (supplied) or AC adapter (Maxon AC210N optional). Like most players I have bought many pedals over the years but come the revolution if I'm told I can only keep one this is it!

Collectable Cream

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. I put a good quality score sheets and good response from the pedal to most power supplies (rather than 9V ...)
