[ maxon real tube series effects ]
Every musician knows that nothing can match the unique "sonic footprint" of a vacuum tube. The warmth of tone, dynamic responsiveness, and incredible sonic clarity of tube circuits is the stuff of legend. With this in mind, the Engineers at Maxon have spent years of research and development in order to create a line of guitar effects that would offer the sonic benefits of vacuum tubes coupled with the ease of use of a compact floor effect. The result is the Maxon Real Tube Series. Each Real Tube model features a heavy-duty, bent steel chassis with air vent for tube. Only the highest quality components are used, including metal jacks and switches and hand-selected dual triode tubes. In addition, each Real Tube Series unit comes complete with AC power supply and a three-year parts and labor warranty.

Tube compression is the stuff of legend, and many of the greatest recordings of all time were tracked using tube compressors in the studio. The Maxon RCP660 takes that amazing tube tone and packs it into a compact, floor mounted stompbox that can be used virtually anywhere. The RCP660’s controls are incredibly simple to use – Master controls the output volume, while Sensitivity determines when the compression is activated. Attack and Sustain knobs control the degree of compression and intensity, allowing for everything from a subtle pinch to extreme squash. The Maxon RCP660 also features a Footswitchable Boost function, allowing for quick changes between solo and rhythm playing, or the ability to use it as a clean Booster in front of your amp. Powered by one hand-selected 12AX7WXT preamp tube, the RCP660 can be used for Guitar or Bass due to its transparent operation. When you’re playing demands the sound of classic tube compression, the Maxon RCP660 Real Compressor is the only real choice.
