Up for sale, a 1983 Maxon ST-9 Super Tube Screamer in exceptional condition and in perfect working order. Produced exclusively for the Japanese market only between 1983-1984, this ST-9 is an incredibly rare and sought after iteration of the Tube Screamer platform. A descendant of the venerable Ibanez TS-808 and TS9, the Maxon ST-9 features two of the same coveted JRC4558 op-amps with a virtually identical tonal response. An additional Mid Boost control offers extra sculptability, and the pedal has the sweet, pronounced midrange content, powerful boost capabilities, and smooth overdrive characteristics for which the original Tube Screamers are known.
The circuit is 100% original and untouched, and the date codes on the electrolytic caps are from the 28th week of '83. Cosmetic wear is limited to light scuffs on the metallic green enclosure. The graphics are pristine, and the original knobs and foil label are intact.
