The VOP-9 was designed with the seasoned guitarist in mind, yet it can be a great addition to any player’s rig.
The VOP has a warm, smooth tone without the “fizziness” or mid-spike associated with many solid state pedals. It offers a tight, punchy bottom end with just a hint of mild compression and works equally well with clean or distorted amps to produce a rich, velvety guitar tone.
Based on Maxon’s legendary “808” circuit, the VOP-9 has a few hidden tricks in the design that set it apart from your ordinary overdrive.
The VOP-9 features an internal charge pump that allows it to run at 9 or 18 volts. In 9 volt setting the VOP reacts more like a traditional overdrive, while the 18-volt setting it offers increased headroom and a fuller frequency response for a more expressive, dynamic effect.
While most overdrive’s pass some degree of clean signal, the VOP-9 allows you to control the amount via the dual-function Drive knob - a dual-ganged pot that controls the amount of Gain as well as the mix between clean and distorted signals.
