OVERVIEW

Take a walk on the wet side!

Maxon has married the coolest aspects of auto-wah and swept filter effects in this modern addition to their respected 9 Series. Opto-coupler circuitry produces the shimmering, watery filtering effects of vintage units. Threshold and peak sliders control the degree of effect while range and drive switches determine the range and direction of filter sweeps. 3 selectable filter types--Lo Pass, Band Pass, and Hi Pass--plus a frequency range of 100Hz-4kHz produce staggering effects with virtually any instrument or input signal. Features true bypass, die-cast zinc case, and 3-year warranty.

Comments about Maxon AF-9 Auto Filter:

This pedal really sucks my tone whether its on or OFF. It really sounded pretty in the online video demonstrations, but I can't find much I like from it through my own equipment. I have a QTron+ which I LOVE, and it sounds sooooo much better than this, AND, when it is off it is OFF. I have a beautiful tone straight to my amp, and this thing totally ruins it. So why did I buy it when I have a QTron+? Because the QTron+ takes up a LOT of real estate!!! I was hoping this smaller pedal could take its place, but NO way. I think I'll try a mini QTron and see if that works for me. Oh well, buy and sell, buy and sell...

not what i thought

Comments about Maxon AF-9 Auto Filter:

i thought this would be the greatest sounding pedal when i first got my hands on it, but after a few weeks i really wasn't impressed. i mean i'm the pickiest tone freak there is, i'm sure there are plenty of people who really like it. but i think the q-tron is still the standard. if you really want to get the best auto wah out there, find yourself an old xotic robotalk. not the 2nd one, the first model with the arpeggiator. that pedal is amazing

Similar electronics to Mu-Tron maybe, but...

By 

from San Francisco

Comments about Maxon AF-9 Auto Filter:

Claiming to have some of the same electronics as a Mu-Tron puts forth a bold statement. This pedal, however, does not produce like a Mu-Tron III. Its sound is a close approximation, but I have two issues with it (if we are comparing it to a Mu-Tron III). First, I'll clarify that my goal is to emulate the Jerry Garcia "wowmp" in Estimated, Fire, Shakedown, etc. (of the 77 era).1) This pedal requires a much stronger input than does the Mu-Tron III, and 2) its effect tapers MUCH more quickly (to almost inaudible volume) than the Mu-Tron III. I own a Musitronics pedal, and while this Maxon is good, it does not capture the essence of the Mu-Tron III, even with its hardware.I do like this filter - it is quality stuff, and I'll use it, to be sure, but it is not a replacement for that vintage Mu-Tron III which you don't want to abuse, lest it break and be gone forever.I've been using this (and the Mu-Tron III) with a Schecter C-1 Classic and MIM Fat Strat.

The best auto wah I've ever used

By 

from Corona, CA

Comments about Maxon AF-9 Auto Filter:

I have owned the MXR Auto Q and the Electro Harmonix Mini Q Tron, and I think the Maxon Auto Filter is better than them. I like that the pedal is smaller than the others. It has true bypass and a lot of switches for making different sounds. I love it.
