Overdrive – Distortion
With independent Overdrive, Distortion, Boost and Noise Gate circuits all under one hood, the RTD800 may be the last “dirt” pedal that you’ll ever need.
By combining various solid-state clipping stages with a real dual-triode tube, the RTD800 offers a massive array of saturated guitar tones. From traditional tube overdrive through full-on gated metal distortion, no other drive pedal offers this degree of versatility in a single package.
The RTD’s 3-band EQ circuit is incredibly versatile and can literally dial in any tone imaginable. With zero frequency overlap, all the three controls are highly interactive and make even the slightest of tone tweaks possible under any playing situation.
The Overdrive channel of the RTD creates a warm, organic tone that’s like driving a maxxed-out amp with an OD pedal. Where some pedals can get in the way of your dynamics, the RTD retains an expressive and dynamic interaction between your guitar and amp, cleaning up beautifully when you roll back on your guitar’s volume and effortlessly tracking picking nuances.
The RTD’s Distortion channel offers up all the gain and character of a hot-rodded Plexi, JCM800 or Soldano. Searing, sizzling solo tones and sustain for days, yet with a distinct clarity that lets individual notes “pop” and chime through. Even at maximum distortion settings the RTD retains an expressiveness and dynamic response that takes your playing to the next level.
For even more versatility, the RTD800 features a foot switchable Boost function that can be varied between 3-9 dB via an internal trim pot. The boost comes post OD/Distortion, allowing the user to dial in the perfect level boost for solos.
Higher gain settings on either channel can be kept tight and noise-free using the RTD’s switchable Noise Gate with variable Threshold. The gate itself is incredibly responsive and tight, with none of the false-triggering and “sputter” common to other pedals.
Like all Maxon products, the RTD800 features True Mechanical Bypass switching using a 3PDT switch. The RTD800 comes complete with the Maxon AC2009 9-Volt power supply, an auto sensing digital power supply that can be used anywhere in the world.
When you require an unparalleled variety of REAL-tube tones, only the Maxon RTD800 will do.

The RTC600 is like taking the finest studio-grade tube compressors and “squeezing” them all down into a single stompbox.
The RTC600 starts out with the same patented DBX compression circuit used in Maxon’s popular CP-9 Pro+ pedal – this circuit provides a very smooth, transparent, almost “glassy” compression with very low noise floor, even at maximum settings. Your guitar sounds like your guitar, only with compression added to smooth out the dynamics.
The RTC600’s dual-triode tube is positioned pre-compression, adding classic valve warmth to the signal without increasing noise levels.
With up to +30 dB of clean Gain, the RTC can be used as a clean booster or as an attenuator to clean up an already dirty amp.
The Addition of Attack and Release controls to the circuit allow for a wider variety of compression effects, including “Brick Wall” limiting and “Soft Knee” compression.
The RTC600 features an internal charge pump circuit that bumps the incoming voltage up to 25 volts, providing massive headroom and full-range frequency response. The RTC600 can be used with any instrument and for a variety of applications – it can be sent into an amp’s front end, placed in an effects loop, or used as an outboard processor for home recordings.
The RTC600 features True Mechanical Bypass switching using a 3PDT switch. The RTC600 comes complete with the Maxon AC2009 9-Volt power supply, an auto sensing digital power supply that can be used anywhere in the world.
For studio-quality compression in a compact Stompbox, the RTC600 is the only REAL choice.
