Black Cat D&S Distortion and Sustain monster gain guitar pedal - 

Like the Bee Buzz, the Black Cat D&S began as a request from our Japanese distributor, who asked us to make a custom replica of the Ibanez/Maxon OD-801. The design first appeared in 1974 as the Maxon D&S, and the circuit was similar to the Version 2 (Rams Head) Big Muff. But the tone stack was quite a bit different than what has been used in any version of the Big Muff. In our opinion it's much more versatile, and usable throughout the entire range of the control.

On a traditional Big Muff type pedal, the tone rolloff gets very muddy, resulting in a loss of definition and mushy sound. Maxon redesigned the tone circuitry to dump some resistance to ground, allowing much better definition in the low end. This gives the D&S a much more versatile tone control with a wider variety of sounds. Just like the original on which it was based, the Black Cat D&S is a great sounding Muff-style fuzz pedal with a highly versatile wide range of tones.

Black Cat D&S Fuzz (23:54)
A highly accurate recreation of one of the most sought after evolutions of the Ram's Head Muff - type circuit, the Maxon D&S. The original and this recreation use a modified tone circuit that gives the muff-style fuzz far more range and versatility. Tons of sustain and singing lead tones, rich and present rhythm tones, and everything in between. Built using high quality components including the original Toshiba transistors found in the early 70's Maxon version.
