Description & Specs

The VOP-9 was designed with the seasoned guitarist in mind, yet it can be a great addition to any player’s rig.

It’s difficult to put into words what makes the VOP-9 stand out from other OD pedals.  In the simplest terms, it accentuates the connection between your guitar and amp rather than getting in the way of it.

The VOP makes your fingers feel like they are working effortlessly – notes jump off the fretboard with vibrant, singing sustain and even the most subtle picking nuance is reproduced with exacting dynamic accuracy.

The VOP has a warm, smooth tone without the “fizziness” or mid-spike associated with many solid state pedals.  It offers a tight, punchy bottom end with just a hint of mild compression and works equally well with clean or distorted amps to produce a rich, velvety guitar tone.

Based on Maxon’s legendary “808” circuit, the VOP-9 has a few hidden tricks in the design that set it apart from your ordinary overdrive.

The VOP-9 features an internal charge pump that allows it to run at 9 or 18 volts.  In 9 volt setting the VOP reacts more like a traditional overdrive, while the 18-volt setting it offers increased headroom and a fuller frequency response for a more expressive, dynamic effect.

While most overdrive’s pass some degree of clean signal, the VOP-9 allows you to control the amount via the dual-function Drive knob - a dual-ganged pot that controls the amount of Gain as well as the mix between clean and distorted signals.

At zero Drive setting the VOP can function as a completely clean booster, perfect for boosting solos or driving a distorted amp.

Whether you’re looking for the ultimate blues tone or that added push to take your solos over the top, the VOP-9 will bring your sound to life.

Over the years the VOP-9 has been the go-to overdrive for many exceptional guitarists including Scott Henderson, Dave Weiner, Jeff Loomis, Doug Rappoport, and Stuart Ziff.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days.
