About This Listing

"From Maxon's "Zero-One" series circa mid to late 80s. The production run on this unit was small; there aren't many of them. Japanese market only. Made in Japan. Built like a brick; weighs in at a noticeably hefty and healthy 21 ounces. The Maxon SD-01 Sonic Distortion is their "0" series version of the early 80s SD-9 Sonic Distortion (Maxon repackaged the early 80s 9 series pedals as the "0" series in the mid to late 80s). Uses a JRC4558D op amp like the original 808/Tubescreamer. This is where the similarities end. Has high gain and more clarity, less compression, and less midrange than the 808 or OD-9 no mid-hump. The distortion is brighter; the treble does not drop -- which lends itself to be played in any pickup position."

Great shape. See the pics for more.
