The original! Maxon, a Japanese effect device manufacturer produced not only under its own brand name but also as an OEM manufacturer for other companies. The Maxon Nine series was sold in the early 80s under the label Ibanez. Pedals such as the TS-9 were best-sellers. After moving away from Ibanez, Maxon offers its pedals again in Europe under its own brand name. The Nine series corresponds largely to the vintage Ibanez 9 series, with Maxon however, you don't have to miss out on modern features such as True Bypass.
