    Comments about Maxon DS830 Distortion Master:

    very in the closet pedal most people really dont know about this pedal maxxon is the originator of the most iconic pedal the ibanez ts9 tube screamer the ds830 distortion gives u the abilty to turn what i have 65 twin fender which is a very clean amp into a marshall jcm 800 it really is a couple pedals combined into one get massive gain control to a to a big mu distortion with fuzz would recommend this pedal for small venues great your own type of sound pedal must have pedal wellbuilt little big but not overwhelming sounds great in bars or clubs

    maxon are number 1

    Comments about Maxon DS830 Distortion Master:

    I run a strat into a ampeg reverberocket r12 (think fender clean tones). I bought the ds830 because I was so impressed with the transparency (retains the tonal characteristics of my amp) of the maxon cp9+ compressor and maxon vop-9 vintage overdrive pro. I am so impressed by maxon once again as this pedal sounds fantastic. I have tried many boutique distortion pedals that sound decent but when compared to my amp's distortion they are thin and unnatural sounding. The maxon ds830 definately holds its own against the distortion of my amp and I couldn't be happy. I'll keep buying maxon with any other effect I need.

    Classic rocker with an edge

    Comments about Maxon DS830 Distortion Master:

    The Maxon DS-830 is a great pedal. I own the ROD-881 and love it but wanted to try this one and was able to add some of the same tones while the ds can not do the scouped sound of the rod it can do pretty much anything else and is easy to dial up quick kick butt tones. I have owned many pedals over the years and the maxon's have never dissapointed me, great stuff.

    Comments about Maxon DS830 Distortion Master:

    distortion sounds good for any style of music, classic rock,metal,etc. price is kind of steep put you will probably be pleased once you play, plus it comes with the adapter to power it thats 20 bucks by itsself any who cool pedal if you want to pay the cash. lots better than a mt2
