    Maxon OD-9 OverdrivePublished on 01/23/07 at 18:40
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Analog pedal

    USE

    Very easy to use

    SOUND QUALITY

    The crunch effect given by the maxon is really good, the proof: push the drive button completely, the sound is still very good, so AC / DC (?)
    I tried an Ibanez TS9 present, the maxon is better
    the settings I use: the drive to 10Heure, volume and tone 14heure for a creamy crunch or you can hear the strings of the guitar
    you can play an arpeggio, rhythmic, with bluesy lead, rhythmic rock, we can do many things with this pedal to its fairly rich media

    9/10 because perfection is not of this world sound material

    Me being robbed of a V-twin Mesa-Boogie, I bought this maxon that sounds better than the channel "blues" v-twin, and purple modjo that sounds as good as the lead channel of v- twin

    Nothing wrong

    USE

    An extraordinary simplicity thanks to three unique pots.

    SOUND QUALITY

    High sound quality. I have half a box guitar and an amp that is all but something that spits out distortion.
    The marriage is perfect.
    By regulating the pots 3, we obtain a veritable ampe the amp sound.
    With a more "rock" guitar it quickly balance the big sound and must be careful to rglage for adding just a grain iresistible guitar.
    And pushing the bottom is always of great efficiency, the "dirty" and rock'n'roll.
    It does not sound as clean altre his grace bepass switch.

    I use it for 5 or 6 months and I still think for a long time.
    It is of great Calita Audible and manufacturing.
    For those who are not up trembaler big amps for a gig in the evening, it is the Idale.
    It is suitable for older styles (eg blues) but also modern stuff (like funk).
    A little expensive .... hence the 9/10. We can not have everything.

    Another story, few people around me used it in the 80's because the Ibanez pedals were rarer and more chres the Boss pedals.
    Internet has much contributed to its renaming, and GAS crisis also ...

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    For me a simply magical overdrive with single coil pickups, it's overdrive the light of which all other pedals are judges.

    For fun and dsamorer few ideas reues sulfates one day OD-9 comparative (or TS-9) with an Ibanez TS-7.

    Among the many clones of this pedal there is one that I find amazing is the Vox V810, its signature sound is slightly diffrente, softer and more progressive, a little less medium. I also like the Fulltone Full Drive (non-mosfet), which offers many more options, but the basic circuit is also the same.

    Everything has been said ...

    UTILIZATION

    Pedal a bit heavy, which reassures the coup robustness level. 3 knobs, efficient, no frills, there is the sound you want quickly. Happiness ...

    SIIIIIIIMMMMMMPLE use.

    Boring stuff builders: No PSU BUT battery included!

    SOUND QUALITY

    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.

    Coupled with a Proco Rat 2 for a combo / overdrive-distortion, it's just magical, harmonious and "get into it".

    I also used to clean boost on some songs. This is a superb fluidity ... pfff!

    I play Fender and Les Paul telecast us custom pro on these two types of guitars the sound is exceptional and a little hotter round on Les Paul anyway. In a Vox amp I vtx 120. It's pure happiness when seeking an overdrive to vintage sounds, sign this pedal eyes closed. Especially if you are in the 70's 80's rock and blues rock.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had one week to replace the m193 mxr gt-od. Seeking a more vintage sound, less impersonal than the mxr (who says this is a good pedal anyway!) I finally found the sound that suits me the most. My string is: Proco Rat 2 (distortion) - maxon od-9 (overdrive) - Boss RV-3 (delay / reverb) - Electro Harmonix Cathedral (stereo reverb).

    I'll go back ...

    An interesting pedal

    See other reviews

    UTILIZATION

    More than easy to use.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The quality is very good, then he must test to see if it suits us.

    I was surprised compatibility with other pedals, among other things with a big muff

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for about a year (on the paul and stratocaster model), and I'm still very satisfied.

    I wanted an overdrive to boost a little my tube amp (blackstar HT1R) and all works perfectly well. I used the pedal as a boost too, and it works very well to launch a solo, or to spit the amp (in clean fashion is awesome).

    So a great value for a good overdrive at reasonable prices.

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

    SOUND QUALITY

    The OD9 as the original TS9 (yes, I know, these are not exact replicas, friends purists JRC4558D thing thing, this op-amp that costs something like ten cents), works wonders on an amp tube (Koch Studiotone for my part) and in groups. Indeed, as it tends to eat a little low, you come out of the mix very easily. And it creamy! With single or double, is happiness, but the reaction is of course different. Headroom to correct an OD, but it's a little drool in the last third. The clean boost is slightly colored, ideal to compensate for the low prevented that out of the mix with a Big Muff, for example.

    This is the ultimate overdrive, I can only put a 10? I will stay at 9, for among those I had the opportunity to try, there are not comparable because they are too different and complementary (Fulltone OCD, very straight, Muffin EHX Français, color different, a blast and an ordeal for the pedalboard, Marshall BB2, low-mids, more compressed the grain, which I keep next to the green box, and others), and then others that are clearly in the same court: Jacques Tubeblower, a bit more expensive but with more finesse and gain a wonder that deserves its 10, as well as the T-Rex Mudhoney, which has its own color, less close to OD9, but puts everyone agrees with its unconventional musicality.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have this pedal for 3-4 years, but has revealed his potential since I bought my Studiotone there is a little over two years. The OD is a joy. Not overdrive the most surprising, but it does its job very well and simplifies the lives of a group, which is not insignificant. I've tried a lot since then, I even "preferred" one or two to one. But it is she that I have kept, and not just about money. Besides, I do not sell it and I think I never will. Even if I end up on a Mudhoney crack one of these days.
    As I compare it to Jacques and T-Rex, I can hardly make complaints about the price, but without messing around, the scheme is profitable for life sentence, it is time to sell less than 100 euros now. You can darken any event on the occasion, it is indestructible, that stuff there.

    Super distortion!

    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!

    The OD-9 uses a diode signal distortion (Panasonic # MA150) that is in the negative feedback loop of the amplifier stage (which includes integrated circuit chip as the JRC4558). Thus, the OD-9 uses a distortion in the signal amplifier circuit which causes the same distortion to sound more natural, soft and subtle with a separate cut-off level. It is for this reason that the type of integrated circuit used has an important impact on the grain of the pedal. (Long live the copy and paste)

    3 pots, it's easy!

    Sound is everywhere, everyone found there.

    No need for manual!

    SOUND QUALITY

    I play with a Start and a Deluxe + Hot Rod.

    I use this pedal to boost my sound clear or natural saturation of the amplifier and have a rock sound, a real one.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had one week's hard and I'm excited.

    I had previously filled a lot about the type of pedal that could suit my style and my sound.

    I bought the veuglette but I can assure you that I do not regret my purchase.

    I paid 95 pounds on Denmark Street London, where I also recommend to all musicians!

    For the price, it's worth every penny, go for it!
