    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 - "Fantastic od/distortion pedal"

    04/01/11

    The SD-9 is a high gain overdrive and distortion pedal. It can also be used nicely as a boost because it has plenty of output. it has a big fat midrange and will work well in a number of applications. I have run it with great results in front of Fe…

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

  • Maxon OD-9 Overdrive

    Maxon OD-9 Overdrive - mooseherman's review

    02/08/10

    This is your basic analog distortion pedal. This is one of the finer pedals Ibanez has made. It's sort of comparable with the Tube Screamer by Ibanez, and in fact it could be considered a ripoff of that pedal. This effect is traditional, just the 1/4…
