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.
