    Maxon OD-820 Overdrive Pro - "A very good Maxon unit"

    02/24/16

    It's an OD stompbox in the purest Japanese tradition, used on guitars and synths, it makes both tube and solid state sounds shine, can't be compared directly with models from different ranges and/or giving different sounds. A must have for class…

  • Maxon SD-9 Sonic Distortion

    Maxon SD-9 Sonic Distortion - "Still going strong...."

    03/24/11
