Achieve That Iconic 'Brown Sound'

The RTO700 Real Tube Overdrive Pedal is equipped with a tube preamp circuit in a compact stombox format, offering a superb amp-like overdrive that will add impact to your tone. This state-of-the-art tube pedal offers the warm tone and responsiveness of the best boutique tube amps, picking up every nuance of your playing style for a sound that is true. Players can achieve a full variety of effects, from a bluesy overdrive to the iconic 'Brown Sound"made famous by Van Halen.

No Clipping Diodes

Unlike other overdrive pedals that feature clipping diodes in the circuit, the RTO700 is equipped with three cascading gain stages with a high output level. This configuration of gain stages combined with the placement of the tube at the end of the circuit providing the warmest, most authentic tube tone possible.

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.
