Loads of Distortion from a Compact Pedal

The Carl Martin PlexiTone single-channel distortion pedal is a great companion for guitarists looking to boost their signal and fuel it with a wide range of distortion settings -- from a super-subtle lift to an over-the-top breakup. This baby utilizes the same high gain setting as the original Pro-Series PlexiTone. A three-dial control layout keeps things simple, and a rugged outer chassis with a cool design keeps your signal secure and full of warm and edgy distortion aching to hit your amplifier. Add some sweet overdrive to your output with this compact yet powerful distortion pedal.

Big Tones from a Small, Pedalboard-Friendly Footprint

Getting loads of that awesome PlexiTone distortion won't take up too much of your pedalboard space, because this baddie is compact at less than four inches wide and less than one pound. Your pedal is powered via a 9 V DC power supply -- sold separately -- and works well with virtually any other effect pedal in your signal chain. Whether you're looking for an interesting way to blend this pedal into your array of external effects hardware, or if you're just looking for some all-around solid and powerful distortion, your Carl Martin PlexiTone will have your back with every note.

Dialing in Your Distortion

The control layout for this pedal is relatively simple and straightforward. The level control determines the output level of your signal, and your tone control brings in the brightness or darkness of your axe's sound. The drive control on this pedal brings in the amount of distortion, with a ton of sonic room to play around with, from an ultra-subtle breakup to some full-on beefy distortion. This wide range of distortion tones makes the Carl Martin Plexitone great for an array of different genres and styles -- from jazz to rock, from blues to country.

PlexiTone Smart Circuitry

Housed inside this baby's tough outer chassis is Carl Martin's well-thought-out inner circuitry, designed to make sure your tone is getting the love and attention it needs. With the same gain structure as the original Pro-Series PlexiTone, this pedal is prepared to fuel your axe with powerful and dynamic output -- and it can also work with the same +/-12 V level as the original AC-powered PlexiTone if you already have one.

Product Description

The Carl Martin PlexiTone Single Channel Distortion Effects Pedal was designed in association with Pete Thorn, and is housed in a small pedal-board friendly housing with three knobs and one switch. Apart from Pete's slight modifications that give this pedal a tighter bottom-end and slightly softer high frequencies, it is exactly the same gain structure as the High Gain setting on the original Pro-Series PlexiTone, it just plays better with different amps.

The single PlexiTone also incorporates the DC-DC converter circuitry, so the pedal can be powered by a regulated 9V Power Supply but will still operate on the same +-12V level as the original AC powered PlexiTone. This allows Carl Martin to use the same high quality components which provide the same tone and headroom that make the CM Pro-Series stand out from the rest!
