Made for Both Bass and Guitar

The BD10 Hybrid Bass Driver is Maxon’s first overdrive pedal designed specifically for the bass guitar, offering the ability to blend the clean signal with a variety of saturated tones to create an array of distorted sounds. The pedal can also be used with guitars to produce clean/dirty amp simulations. A range of controls provide excellent adjustments to the pedal’s effects, offering up to +6dB of clean boost, +14dB of drive boost, and dedicated controls for bass and treble. The pedal also features a low impedance buffered bypass, reducing the amount of signal loss in long cables and other effect units.

In Cooperation with Masaki Yamada

In order to create the best overdrive pedal for bass guitar, Maxon cooperated with famous Japanese bassist Masaki Yamada to ensure the pedal can keep up with the most energetic players while still retaining a low end punch. The result was a pedal that offered a wide variety of effects with an articulate distortion, allowing players to find the perfect sound for their playing style. With distortions from a semi-dirty boost to a punchy tube-like grind, players can even create a super saturated shred sound.

About Maxon

Maxon started out in Japan in 1965 under the name Nisshin Onpa, manufacturing guitar pickups before producing OEM products for other companies. Nisshin Onpa was responsible for designing and manufacturing many legendary pedals while working in partnership with Ibanez, including the TS-808/TS808 and TS9 tube screamers. Although many of the pedals Maxon created were released under the Ibanez name, Maxon was producing pedals under their own name, and in 2002 when the two companies parted way, Maxon began to push its name as a manufacturer of high-quality effects pedals. Today Maxon produce "hard-to-find" vintage type effects pedals, and are used by many artists such as Pearl Jam, Troy Van Leeuwen, Steve Stevens, Brad Whitford, and many more.
