New Maxon OD-9, with Analog Man classic 808 mod. More options are available to add to this basic model.

Features
The Maxon OD-9 introduced in the summer of '02, is a TS9 (looks exactly the same) with the correct JRC4558D chip, and it had a DPDT switch replacing the FET switching. This early OD-9 had "normal" bypass like an old 70s pedal but does not suck much tone when OFF. Since it is an exact TS9 circuit, we offer the same mods on the OD-9, either the CLASSIC or the SILVER mod, along with KWS option. In about 2004 they changed to a 4PDT true bypass micro switch and the new ones now do have true bypass under the stock switch rocker. This OD-9 should not be confused with the original 1984 Ibanez OD-9 which was not a tube screamer circuit (and very rare, I finally got one for my collection in 2007)

This OD-9 board has many parts removed in preparation for our SILVER mod. Much of it's TS9 circuit board is emptied because it no longer uses the TS9s FET switching. So there is less circuitry in your signal path for a clearer, purer tone. I recommend the OD-9 over the TS9 for best tone both ON and OFF. The true bypass switch is a little different feeling from a Boss or Ibanez switch. Like all true bypass pedals it goes down and back up to switch, unlike a momentary switch which just sends a pulse when you touch it.


The Maxon is made in the same factory that made the TS-808 pedals in the late 1970s and early 1980s and TS9 pedals until about 2002. We are not sure where the new TS808 and TS9 pedals are now made but they stopped saying MAXON in them in 2002. See our Tube Screamer history page for more info.

Dual pedal with BAD BOB
We have now released the Maxon OD9/808 with an added Bad Bob circuit inside. It's two pedals in one box. The Bad Bob has the added stomp switch on top, and either or both effects can be used. There is a new volume knob on the pedal for the booster volume, and a new LED indicator too.

The Bad Bob Booster circuit will not fit in any other pedal like a TS9, only the OD9 because of all the extra room on the circuit board

The Bad Bob pedal is a booster based on the famous and much copied mini-booster "JFET mu-amp" design of Jack Orman (check out his site to learn more). This design was also used as the basis for most other boutique boost pedals.

Here is a picture of the Bad Bob OD9 pedal with the optional SILVER mod (signified by the RE-J sticker).

stomp switch mod

Some people prefer a normal round stomp switch on their pedals, we can add one for $35 on a new OD9 or SD9 pedal.


Note : Mod and option prices are cheaper when you buy the pedal from us, see mod form for prices on sending in your pedal for a mod.

OD 9 with 808/Silver Mod April 17, 2016
Reviewer: Thomas Dunleavy from Marquette , MI United States  
I just received my new Maxon OD9 Silver Mod. All I can really say is....... Wow! I love it! I have owned many expensive OD's , didn't love any of them. KTR, Timmy, Red Dirt, TS9, etc.... Finally an OD that makes me want to play for hours. I play through a Supro Thunderbolt RI 15", combined with my Am Strat the pedal sings. Clean yet powerful and full of sustain. Great job guys! Tom

Maxon OD-9/808/Silver/KWS Mods July 17, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
Bought November 2008, I never tried it before, I never heard it before. My choice for buying this pedal was purely based on what I read about it and my need for an overdrive pedal. And boy, the juice in this pedal is just what I needed!

It sounds so clean like no effect is in use, the high tones sparkle like a crystal and the lower tones are rolling around dirty. The hardfunk I am able to produce with this baby hits everyone right in the face! It's the perfect balance between my clean Jazzmaster and the Fuzz Factory, and I'm sure this pedal will travel with me for a very long time.

OD9/Bob a great combo July 10, 2012
Reviewer: Adam Smith from Burien, WA United States  
Bad news first:  I had my pedalboard stolen a few years back.  Before that I had recently made it to the end of the wait list for the KoT and LOVED it.  After the board was stolen I got back on the wait list and Mike suggested the OD9/Bob combo while I waited.  I said "sure" (I mean, who wouldn't take his advice??) and he was right, it's great.  Very versatile.  Now, the reason I wrote this.  I got my KoT and use it as a 'leave on' for the yellow side and then add in the red for leads.  But then, I tried yellow and red for really heavy sounds and then add this thing after it in the chain for leads and it's ricidulous.  It adds sustain and drive with the main pedal on, and then you can experiment with the Bob or even use both.  You can make a clean amp sound like it's ready to explode with all four of those circuits going at once.  Good stuff!

The Best Tone Ever! w/Silvermod October 11, 2011
Reviewer: Gary Wiryawan from Seattle, WA United States  
I used this pedal mostly on clean channel of my amp and what I get is a superb overdriven sound with enough dirt and sustain to sing with a humbucker and enough sparkle and mid to strum with a single coil.

This pedal can be combined with other overdrive/boost pedal to achieve a very pleasant creamy fat huge distortion with not too much dirt and not too much saturation.

Combined with silvermod, i got a very transparent sounding overdrive, it does not hide the true tone of my guitar.

Extremely love it and I would buy it again if it break. I recommend people to buy this thing especially with the silvermod.

Incredible little thing July 3, 2009
Reviewer: Matt Fisher from Lincolnshire, IL United States  
Love this pedal. The "Silver" mod (JRC chip) really makes this pedal incredible. My favorite sound with this guy is to play on a neck SC. The tone of the pickup itself pierces right through!
