Ever wanted a JTM 45/100, a JCM 800, & a 1972 JMP Superlead all on stage with you? How about we throw in a giant growling 4x12 for each one? How about a tube screamer to push it all into screaming, ear drum-shattering oblivion? Yeah, me too. But honestly, those amps all do one or two things really well, while something else suffers. Plus they are stupid heavy and no one seems to be giving them away. Enter the Plexi-Drive Deluxe. I've never cared for "Marshall in a box" style pedals, and I'm always a little leery of drive pedals in general. To be honest, most of them are boring and can't touch the way an amp sounds and feels when it's breaking up and deep into the power tubes. I don't know how (I don't understand circuits; I assume it's magic), but the Plexi-Drive Deluxe has solved these problems. It transformed my 20 watt Tweed Deluxe style circuit amplifier into a giant Marshall stack of awesome. Tight, focused, harmonically rich gain that is crisp and percussive when pushed, and a fat, chewy bottom end that nails that slinky Marshall "clean" tone on the edge of breakup. But more than just mimicking the tone of a classic Marshall, the Plexi-Drive Deluxe actually feels like a classic Marshall, responding perfectly to your pick attack and volume control, blooming gain-saturated notes and all. Plus it's super portable... no stage crew needed, and it won't break down mid set.
The Plexi-Drive Deluxe is essentially two pedals in one. The "Post Gain" blue channel on the left is the amp. Tailor it to your needs with a bass and bright switch, as well as a three band active EQ that cuts and boosts the appropriate frequencies. There's also a gain and level control. The "Pre Gain" red channel on the right is the screamer, controlled by its own gain knob, because that classic hard rock tone you love was never just a Marshall.
