MGR/Anonymous's review"Maxon AD999 Pro Analog Delay"

Maxon AD-999Pro Analog Delay
The AD999 Pro has a larger footprint than a traditional effects pedal measuring 4.75'(W) x 6'(D) x 2.35'(H). The pedal is part of the Vintage line of effects from Maxon and features vintage style knobs, vintage style footswitch and mini switches.

I'm a professional guitarist and have studied for 31 years. I currently play in a cover band and use this unit on my pedalboard.

I acquired this pedal from Godlyke Distributing. This unit can be purchased for USD $399.99.

The Maxon AD999 Pro has a warm sound that's pleasing to the ears thanks to all analog operation. Maxon took the features of two of Maxon's most advanced delay units and combined them into a single, powerful package.

The AD999 Pro uses 3 mini toggle switches to control the 'Multi-Head' mode, which adds midstream delay signals to the normal delay to emulate the sound of Tape Echo multi-head operation. Using a variety of settings the player can choose rhythmic delay effects such as triplet and sixteenth note subdivisions against the main delay.

Eight custom made Maxon MC4107D bucket brigade IC's made their way under the hood and it boasts 900 milliseconds of delay time. Maxon also uses their proprietary RMS level sensor and noise reduction circuit to provide clean, low noise levels.

I actually use this pedal to replace reverb when I'm performing live and in the studio. The multi-head emulation allows me to dial in just the right amount of space on my sound so the multi delays overlap and create a natural sound.

The only thing that could be improved on this unit is the addition of a tap tempo feature. If this type of delay isn't important in your playing than this shouldn't be an issue. I don't rely on tap tempo features personally however, if you want to perform some U2 songs you'd need a separate digital delay to achieve tempos.

Like all Maxon pedals, the quality is top-notch. I never have an uncomfortable feeling when I gig with this pedal - I always know it'll be there for me. The switches have a solid feel and the vintage style knobs turn with a smooth feel. Quality all the way here.

This Professional delay offering from Maxon might set you back a few bucks more than other delays, but you'll understand why when you dig into the plethora of delay variations and the beautiful sound you'll hear with your first chord.

Maxon AD-999Pro Analog Delay
Analog Delay. Has an input jack, two jack outputs (one with purpose and a "dry"). 3 Controls: Delay Time, Feedback, Delay Level, 3 switch on / off emulation of tape delay (3 / 8, 4 / 8 and 5 / 8), power supply 9V


Use is very simple, the buttons it feels solid, I wish I could control the switch using an expression pedal


So there is really the highlight of this Pedal! Any loss of earnings, a warmth, a little feedback can be pushed oscillations magical, very musical. I already have an aqua-puss, a Moogerfooger 104z analog delay and a deluxe memory Boy: The 999 maxon analog pro buries them all and largely in terms of sound quality. I tested this pedal with my theremin Etherwave on a PA, my strat a hot rod deluxe, my Nord C1 organ leslie on a 3300 (with the sound of a Farfisa and a volume pedal wah wah I played "set The Control for the Heart of the Sun "by Pink Floyd and I always feel at pompei ... well above the delay built on the north) and my Nord Lead 2X synth in a PA system. This delay fits perfectly with any instrument.La multitap function simulates more delay, in 3 / 8 4 / 8 and 5 / 8 is not bad at all, a pretty cool feature, not to be confused with a "tape simulation" or simulated tape echo


I use it for 2 days without stopping, it is a true marvel, I have tried many models before, those mentioned above plus the Memory Man and the mxr carbon copy.
What I like most: the sound altogether.
What I like least: unlike a boy deluxe memory or moog delay, you can not plug in expression pedal for feedback controller, or the speed of the mix or even delay, which is anyway not poorly important to me live, especially for feedback (when it starts from it's nice to lower it fast enough not to make public its deaf and burst his hp).
The value for money for me is very good: the Moogerfooger 104z costs 200 euros more, certainly has many more options (multiply the delay time by 2 or divide by 2 using a switch, all controller parameters with an expression pedal, add an effect only on the delay) but was significantly lower sound quality.
That conclusion, if this delay had an input for an expression pedal I think it will remain the benchmark for 100 years. The sound is absolutely wonderful, fantastic, soaring, hypnotic ... Extraordinary
