Reissue

The Maxon SM-9 Pro+ Super Metal Pedal is a reissue model and delivers a high-gain distortion that has been especially designed to accommodate the metal guitarist. Featuring a flexible circuit, the SM-9 offers everything from a classic crunch to an extreme metal tone.

Controls

With a basic four knob layout and control options for Gain, Level, Edge and Scoop, players can easily achieve their required sound at the turn of a dial. The Scoop control is a mid-band elimination filter with a range from 200Hz to 2 KHz, which adjusts the frequency range where the pedal's midrange cut is centered. Once the amount of mid scoop is determined, any high-end loss can be dialed back in using the Edge control for the perfect distortion. Both Scoop and Edge are highly interactive controls and work similar to a parametric equalizer.

Switchable Voltage

As well as offering the perfect Metal distortion, the SM-9 also features a switchable 9- or 18-volt operation for an increased headroom, and frequency range. The SM-9 offers a wide variety of high-gain tones, with versatility and an easy-to-use interface. It is the must have for any metal pedalboard.

Nine Series

The SM-9 is part of Maxon's nine series, which all feature the same iconic chassis design, as well as true bypass switching. Since the introduction of this series in the 1980s, Maxon has achieved a legendary status amongst players across the world, due to the versatile choice of effects on offer. The SM-9 stays true to its original design, with a simple interface and vibrant colour. Players can easily achieve the perfect distortion with the choice of four control knobs. Its indestructible metal chassis ensures that all the internal components remain protected no matter on the application.

Maxon’s Note on Powering the SM-9 Pro+

This pedal’s voltage regulator IC requires a high inrush current of approximately 2000 mA upon startup. When using with a Power Brick such as the Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2+, this pedal should be connected to a high current power jack when possible.

If it is not possible to connect to a high current jack, you can power the SM-9 Pro+ by leaving a battery in the pedal. Upon initial start-up, unplug the external DC power input cable, engage the pedal, and then plug the DC power input cable back in – the pedal will now power up normally off the external power supply until you power down your pedalboard.

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.
