Here is a vintage 1970s Maxon D&S Distortion and Sustainer electric guitar effects pedal. This particular narrow box example is in excellent all original condition and includes the original box as well as the original paperwork. Originally released in 1974, the D&S is a precursor to the amp-overdrive simulators of later years. With its mild drive, relaxed sustain and high output, the D&S sits between an overdrive and a distortion. This unique “split personality” makes the D&S perfect for players that seek a natural-feeling drive sound but with more drive and output than an OD generally provides. This example is in perfect working condition and sounds amazing.
