Based on the classic “Plexi-Drive” Wampler pedal, this Deluxe version provides considerably more control for shaping your tone. With an active 3-band EQ and additional brightness control, the Plexi-Drive Deluxe places itself in the modern age of pedals. A pedal with which you can achieve almost any Plexi tone using almost any amp.
Since the early ’60s, Marshall amps have been leaders when it comes to rock tones thanks to their legendary overdrive and great bass response from early rock legends like Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Cream and AC / DC.
The Plexi-Drive Deluxe is a direct descendant of the Plexi-Drive Standard but with some improved features. Like the original, the Plexi-Drive Deluxe’s unique gain structure can cover everything from Vintage ’68-style Plexi tones to the massive rock tones of a JTM-45® turned up to ten, or even eleven.
With the addition of an all-new Bass / Mid / Treble EQ stack, you can now have even more tonal control. With the bass boost option, you can emulate the bass feel of a 4 × 12 ” cabinet (or two) with the flick of a switch and it lets you to dial in your low end at lower volume gigs or at bedroom volume levels. To complement this, it also incorporates a high-end brightness switch, making switching from bright to dark guitars (and amps) a breeze.
The Plexi-Drive Deluxe also features a one knob, pre-gain boost soft click switch that is voiced like “that ‘valve’ screaming green overdrive with pronounced mids” – to help push your leads into thick creamy overdrive.
