Maxon AD-9 PRO Analog Delay Pedal

Description

A good quality analog delay takes pride of place on many pedal boards. The Maxon AD-9 is a stunning choice for your rig if you want a pedal that will deliver subtle, sweeping delay up to 450ms.

The AD-9 Pro provides 450 milliseconds of fat, warm analog delay tone thanks to 4 x custom-made Maxon MC4107D Bucket Brigade IC’s.  The delay repeats of the AD-9 Pro are filtered using Maxon's proprietary noise reduction circuitry which reduces the aliasing, clock noise and distortion common to analogs.  The result is a rounder, smoother delay repeat that doesn’t overpower the original note.

With a wider dynamic range and max input level of +12 dB, the AD-9 Pro can accept signal from any source.  This improved response offers a better balance between low and high frequency ranges, creating a delay tone that is clear and firm while still retaining that characteristic analog warmth.  It also allows the Pro to be used in line level effects loops on amplifiers.

The AD-9 Pro starts with a string of low gain, low voltage op amps designed to boost the signal and shape the sound without adding distortion.  Signal then passes to a THAT4315s Compander - a precision low voltage, low noise Compander IC designed to boost signal while killing any noise.  This IC brings the input signal up to an ideal level and keeps it there as notes decay.  This is good for signal-to- noise ratio and also gives the delay chips a clean, strong signal to work with.

NOTE ON POWERING THE AD-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.
