Perfect For Any Rig

The VOP-9 Vintage Overdrive Pro Pedal from Maxon is the perfect choice for players looking for the ultimate blues tone, or that added punch needed for a dramatic impact on solos. Designed with the seasoned guitarist in mind, the VOP-9 perfectly accentuates the connection between the guitar and amp for a superb effect. This powerful pedal allows users to effortlessly achieve an overdriven effect, by capturing every nuance of their playing style, for dynamic accuracy.

Warm, Smooth Tone

Players can achieve a warm, smooth tone without the fizziness often associated with solid state pedals. The VOP-9 also delivers a tight, punchy bottom end, and works well with clean or distorted amps for a rich, velvety tone.

Switchable Power Option

As well as offering a great overdrive, the VOP-9 also features an internal charge pump that allows it to run at 9 or 18 volts depending on user preference. When using the 9 volt setting, this compact pedal reacts more like a traditional overdrive, while the 18-volt setting it offers increased headroom with a fuller frequency response for a more expressive, dynamic effect.

Maxon’s Note on Powering the VOP--9

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.

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.
