Product Overview

The Sound Of An '80s Marshall Plexi On Your Pedalboard

Carl Martin Plexitone

This pedal has an unusually high set of gain stages, from subtle overdrive tones to very heavy rock sounds, and that's just the crunch channel. Take it up to the High Gain channel and you can go from classic rock to face melt, in memory of all your '80's high gain heroes.

This is a seriously versatile pedal with a wealth of tones to explore.

Clear and Natural high gains with plenty of low end can be dialled back to reveal clear, separation and a very natural sounding break-up through to a boosted crunch that sounds just like an old Marshall Plexi. If you find yourself requiring different tones and stages of overdrive, then a pedal with five levels of drive is probably a good place to start.

"An overdrive pedal with five levels of drive is quite a luxury in itself, but it’s a real delight when all the sounds are so rich and meaty. We’re not sure whether Carl Martin intended to create a direct Marshall tribute here (apart from the name, of course) but there’s definitely a Marchall’esque quality to many of the sounds. Combined with a generous twist of the tone knob, high settings on the crunch channel can sound quite like a JCM 800. Far less subtlety and tonal range is available from the high gain channel, but that’s not a problem. This is where you can find that wonderfully spongy distortion typical of a valve amp set to near-meltdown level. The response is very smooth, with the natural compression or “sag” typical of real valve amps." - GUITARIST (UK)
