The Maxon BC101 is an incredibly rare oddity from Maxon's late 70's collection. The purpose of the BC101 was to use a 9v battery to test the juice of another 9v battery.. Simply plug the BC101 into the input jack of a pedal and choose "CHECK" mode, if the LED lights up then the pedals battery has life in it. The "TEST" mode is used to check the battery level of it's own battery.
â€‹It's hard to imagine why they didn't sell billions of these.. Either way this is one of the rarest pieces we've ever owned and is a great piece of pedal history.
Mint condition, works perfectly. Includes box and manual.
