    Maxon OD9 Overdrive Pedal Customer Review

    Sound:
    Very weak gain stage, even for a pedal advertised as a bluesy tube sound. Ran it through a 30-watt orange rocker, even as a booster it was kindof abrasive.
    Feature:
    tonestack pretty stock. came with a battery.
    Ease of Use:
    really straightforward to use. alot of back and forth between pedal and amp tone stacks and gain stages though.
    Quality:
    it's a maxon, they've always made quality products. With everything I've read about the pedals and the JC4558 chip and it's comparability to a vintage TS-9, I had high hopes for the gain and rolloff of the pedal and it's studio application. I was really disappointed in that area and it's possible I got a faulty pedal. Maxon isn't known for faulty equipment so I'm not sure what to make of the whole experience with the OD-9. The whole "Adam D., Metal, metalcore" studio application may be marketing hype. I still recommend trying it because Same Day Music are great people, great customer service and returns are hassle free.
    Manufacturer Support:
    Never spoke to maxon but SDM's return service was exceptional
    Value:
    it's durable, it may have what you want in a pedal for warming up solid state amplification, it's all matter of opinion.
    The Wow Factor:
    Green is a good color for the OD-9, very iconic and a nice ibanez/maxon vintage knock-off look.
    Overall:
    Eh, I'll check on some other overdrive pedals. I've used a TS-9 and the maxon was nothing like the TS 9. T-rex makes and Alberta overdrive based on the same chipset, mid-hump, and rolloff. It's still a very warm pedal, just bereft of any break-up whatsoever.
