Ibanez started selling guitar effect pedals in 1974 when the Hoshino Gakki Ten (Hoshino Musical Instruments Company - the owner of Ibanez) ) signed an agreement with the Nisshin Onpa Factory (owner of the brand name Maxon) to market and distribute their products outside of Japan. This prolific cooperation lasted - on a more or less exclusive basis - until 2002, when both companies parted ways.
