Part Of The Reissue Series

The D&S Distortion Sustainer Pedal from Maxon was originally released in 1974, and has since been a favourite amongst guitarists. The D&S delivers that same smooth, compressed fuzz tones that can be heard on many recordings over the last few decades, whilst still retaining the original sound and feel of your guitar.

Quiet Performance

Not only does the D&S offer an iconic fuzz and distortion tones, by using hand-selected low-noise transistors, you can achieve more distortion with less noise and hiss often associated with similar pedals.

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.
