Improved circuitry • Natural sounding distortion • True bypass • Clean boost option • The Maxonn OSD-9 guitar effects pedal provides the natural, mild overdrive of a tube amp without sacrificing the guitar's original tone. It can also be used as a clean booster to provide increased gain from an amplifier. The Maxon OSD-9 Overdrive/Soft Distortion uses a Panasonic MA150 signal-distorting diode that is located in the amplifier stage's negative feedback loop. This stage also contains the JRC4558 IC chip. Therefore, the OSD-9 distorts signal in the amplifier section itself which, yields a smoother, milder, more natural sounding distortion than a separate clipping stage. This is also the reason that the IC type used in the circuit has such a large impact on the unit's tone. Maxon developed this unique design more than 20 years ago--an industry first that is commonplace today.
