Known for their incredible exploits of engineering mastery, Maxon has come a long way from the company’s inception in 1966. A highly regarded manufacturer of some of history’s finest effects pedals, Maxon continually strive to raise the bar when it comes to analogue circuits. Boasting some of the universes most popular pedals on their roster it’s no wonder these beauties are the lifeblood of guitarist’s pedalboards the world over.
Maxon’s take on the legendary Mu-Tron III, the AF-9 Auto Filter uses special optical circuitry to reproduce the liquid, shimmering, vowel-like envelope filtering that made the Mu-Tron a staple of 70’s Funk and Soul music.
The AF-9's intuitive user interface makes it easy to dial in the effect – slider pots are used for Threshold and Peak controls to allow for quick changes to the response and tonality of the filter.
The Threshold control determines the degree of pick attack needed to trigger the filter.
The Peak control boosts the center frequency of the filter to emphasize the filtering effect (think Resonance control on a synthesizer).
The Range switch determines the overall frequency where the filter sits, while the Drive switch determines the direction of the filter sweep – low to high or high to low.
Three selectable Filter types (HP, BP, and LP) and a frequency range of 100 Hz to 4 KHz allow the user to dial in the AF-9’s wah effect with virtually any instrument or input signal.
From simple Wah to funked-up Outer Space explorations, the AF-9 provides the most delicious, delightful, diabolical wah filter effects available in a compact, user-friendly package.
