A salute to the rare and highly collectible "Super Tube Screamer" from the 1980s, the Maxon ST-9 Pro+ Super Tube distortion pedal takes the basic design elements of the coveted vintage model and brings them into the 21st century.
Loosely based on Maxon's classic "808" circuit, the ST-9 Pro+ distortion pedal offers a dedicated midrange control that varies the amount of midrange boost, creating powerful, fat, and heavy distortion sounds akin to a full-stack amplifier. A mode switch to select from two different diode types allows the user to fine-tune the Maxon ST-9 Pro+ effects pedal for use with single coils or humbuckers, while switchable 9V or 18V operation provides increased dynamic headroom and fuller frequency response.
When you're ready to step beyond the standard overdrive, the Maxon ST-9 Pro+ Super Tube distortion pedal is the only choice for the discerning overdrive connoisseur.

Comments about Maxon ST-9 Super Tube Pro Plus Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal from Nine Series:
I primarily use this pedal as a boost in front of a high gain amp and Ive only been using the 9 volt setting so far. I find that with the added mid enhance knob, I'm able to sort of shape the distortion of the amp. This allows me to almost always remove the muddy lower mid ranges and creates a much more crunchy and aggressive sound when boosting the amps distortion. Next to my maxon od808, this pedal seems slightly more hot and isn't quite as smooth sounding but the tone knob has a wider range so I feel that many different sounds can be created by making adjustments to tone and the mid enhance knobs. I like that the st9+Pro has a slightly more aggressive feel vs the od808. Not as wild as using a boss metal zone as a boost(distortion at 0 and level at 10) but maybe somewhere in between.. sort of like a boss sd-1 super overdrive. I've also compared it to a boss wazacraft sd-1w and I feel like it had more adjustability. Both have a bass boost option as the waza super overdrive has a standard and custom mode. The st9+ pro feels more full in the standard mode than the waza super overdrive's standard mode, which gets a little more thin in the lower ranges. Of course these are with my settings and I do feel that the tone could be adjusted more, depending on your needs.. I generally don't use the low boost as it tends to push the bass a lot harder before the amp, which can also create a muddier sound. But I do think it could be useful with certain types of amps and setups. The low boost feels more intense on the st9+pro than the waza super overdrive, which makes sense since the standard mode on the st9+pro seems to have more low end than the standard mode on the waza. But Im sure there's a lot more experimenting and comparing that could be done with these pedals. Personally, for boosting amp overdrive into a chunky metal tone I seem to prefer the maxon st9+pro. It seems the most versatile and could be basically adjusted to sound like almost any tubescreamer or overdrive.
