OVERVIEW

Proudly analog in a digital world.

The Maxon AD-999 Guitar Effects Pedals is the most ambitious and practical analog delay pedal to come along in a very long time. A few years back the hopes of analog lovers the world over were dashed when Panasonic closed their BBD production line for good. Rather than giving in to the digital wave, Maxon took the opposite approach and had BBDs manufactured exclusively for them!

Each AD999 comes loaded with eight Maxon MN3107D BBDs for a total of 900ms of pure, rich, organic analog delay. Standard Delay Time, Delay Level, and Feedback controls combine with wet/dry outputs for a variety of sounds and signal routing options. Switching is handled by a 4PDT mechanical switch for transparent, noise-free operation in bypass and the unit runs off 9V DC for easier integration into players' pedalboards. When you're ready for the ultimate analog experience, the Maxon AD999 is the only serious choice in an otherwise digital world!

FEATURES
  • 8 Maxon MN3107D BBD's for 900ms of analog tone
  • Standard delay time, delay level, and feedback controls
  • Wet/dry outputs
  • Transparent, noise-free operation in bypass
  • Sturdy construction

    Comments about Maxon AD-999 Analog Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

    This pedal delivers on everything it promises - lush, classic analog delay tones with style and a quality build. If that's what you're looking for, it's well worth the money.

    I like my effects simple and my personal tastes are that too many buttons and tone options can be a distraction. I had a well-known digital delay pedal that included about 10 different delay styles. For me, it was just too much. This pedal has three knobs, one type of analog delay and a helluva lot of tone.

    That said, you can really get a ton of different flavors of delay, from slap-back to the Pink Floyd-style stuff and beyond. I'm still exploring the settings. So far, all of them sound super.

    However, beware to those who don't use analog, you won't get crystal clear digital delay tones. The analog sound is an imperfect tone -- but full of musical character. You work with it and it pays you back.

    Anyway, this pedal is everything I need and feels like something I want to grow old with.

        Great pedal. Very easy to get plenty of different delays out of it. Nice clean look on the board. A slight volume increase when engaged but overall a great pedal.

        This Delay is a must have. I tried many other delays this one has it. True Bypass and great tone. True tone. Love it!

        Hmm.

        Comments about Maxon AD-999 Analog Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I was using this pedal side-by-side with a Boss DD-3, and I noticed something interesting. The boss pedal had way more features, a better construction, and was just more versatile. But, this pedal had infinitely superior tone. There's a very natural sounding high cut on this pedal which makes it sound better than digital delays. However, its features are a tad dated. Try before you buy.

        nice and simple

        By Firebird Willie-7ieAA

        from MInneapolis

        Comments about Maxon AD-999 Analog Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I traded in my digital delay for this analog unit. I must say it's very smooth and clean although I have noticed a little volume increase when kicked in. Nothing in my opinion will ever replace the sound of the old echo plex or space echo, but this pedal is a great way to go. I used it nightly and have no regrets. Thanks Maxon I really do love this pedal

        Comments about Maxon AD-999 Analog Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I love this delay. It has a wonderful organic sound. Not cold and sterile like the other delays. The best money can buy.

        Great delay but with some mistakes.

        By Julious Papandreu

        Comments about Maxon AD-999 Analog Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I purchase the AD999 but I have problems because when the effect is ON, the volume increase, and when of, the volume decrease and people in Maxon dont have a great answer for me.
