New Nine Series pedals with new features

Clifton, NJ (October 12, 2007) – Godlyke, Inc. is releasing four new Nine Series pedals from Maxon: The AD-9 Pro Analog Delay, the OSD-9 Overdrive Soft Distortion, the OOD-9 Organic Overdrive and the VOP Vintage Overdrive Pro.

Maxon Nine Series designs feature improved circuitry and true bypass switching with a 4PDT switch. The pedals have tool-less access to battery compartments, die cast zinc chasses, rubber bottom surface pads, AC/DC power, voltage regulators and LED battery life indicators. They come with a three year warranty.

AD-9 Pro Analog Delay - The new AD-9 has 450 ms of analog delay with a unique filtering circuit that provides rich, clear analog tone without noise. TheAD-9 Pro features a multi-tap "ping-pong" delay switch which replicates the dual-head feature of vintage tape chorus units as well as stereo outputs. List price: $375

OSD-9 Overdrive Soft Distortion - A reissue of the ultra-rare original "pre-Ibanez" Maxon OD-880, the OSD-9 uses the fabled 741 chip which is renowned for its exceptional dynamic response and tube-like tone. List: price $260

OOD-9 Organic Overdrive - The OOD-9 is an amazingly natural overdrive that adds bite and girth to your amp tone. Its JRC4558IC chip adds the classic midrange boost that Maxon overdrives are famous for. List price: $260

VOP-9 Vintage Overdrive Pro – An overdrive with clean boost, the VOP-9 features an internal voltage doubler that is switchable from 9 to 18 volts, allowing for better note dynamics and increased low-end response. List price: $275

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
