The RTD’s 3-band EQ circuit is incredibly versatile and can literally dial in any tone imaginable. With zero frequency overlap, all the three controls are highly interactive and make even the slightest of tone tweaks possible under any playing situation.
The Overdrive channel of the RTD creates a warm, organic tone that’s like driving a maxxed-out amp with an OD pedal. Where some pedals can get in the way of your dynamics, the RTD retains an expressive and dynamic interaction between your guitar and amp, cleaning up beautifully when you roll back on your guitar’s volume and effortlessly tracking picking nuances.
The RTD’s Distortion channel offers up all the gain and character of a hot-rodded Plexi, JCM800 or Soldano. Searing, sizzling solo tones and sustain for days, yet with a distinct clarity that lets individual notes “pop” and chime through. Even at maximum distortion settings the RTD retains an expressiveness and dynamic response that takes your playing to the next level.
For even more versatility, the RTD800 features a foot switchable Boost function that can be varied between 3-9 dB via an internal trim pot. The boost comes post OD/Distortion, allowing the user to dial in the perfect level boost for solos.
Higher gain settings on either channel can be kept tight and noise-free using the RTD’s switchable Noise Gate with variable Threshold. The gate itself is incredibly responsive and tight, with none of the false-triggering and “sputter” common to other pedals.
Like all Maxon products, the RTD800 features True Mechanical Bypass switching using a 3PDT switch. The RTD800 comes complete with the Maxon AC2009 9-Volt power supply, an auto sensing digital power supply that can be used anywhere in the world. When you require an unparalleled variety of REAL-tube tones, only the Maxon RTD800 will do.
