The Analog Distortion Pedal That's Inspired by Vintage Tube Amps
The Tech 21 Hot-Rod Plexi analog distortion pedal will give your signal plenty of breakup and boost -- without having to crank up a vintage amp. More than just a distortion pedal, this little baddie offers level, tone, punch, and drive controls along with a stock and hot setting for either a '68 Plexi tone or a British 12AX7 tube-toned stack. The "Hot" control knob lets you dial in up to 28 decibels of gain. This pedal also features a true bypass configuration, all-analogue design, a custom footswitch actuator for silent switching, and a rugged and durable metal chassis. Fire this baby up and let your axe dish out some serious sonic force.

Stock and Hot Settings
Tech 21's Hot-Rod-Plexi distortion pedal features two sweet settings for your switching pleasure. The Stock setting will fuel your signal with some punchy '68 Plexi tone. You can switch on over to the Hot setting for some creamy British 12AX7 tube-infused sonic force. The Hot setting also features a boost knob that dishes out up to 28 decibels of gain. This is your ticket to sweet tones and a ton of extra boost with fast and easy switching.
Sweet Circuitry and Design
The explicit goal of your Hot-Rod Plexi distortion pedal is crafting your signal into a full-fledged force of tonal might. This baby is built with an all-analogue design and utilizes a custom footswitch actuator for silent switching. A specialized low-pass filter will keep your tone clean and free of low-end mud without losing any body or darkness. What you consistently get is warm and natural tube-amp-style distortion with every note.
Count the Ways to Shape Your Tone
Just like a vintage tube amp, the controls on the Hot-Rod Plexi give you a lot of liberty to find the exact sound you're looking for. You have level, tone, punch, drive, and your "Hot" dB level control. The level control determines your signal's volume, the tone control acts as a specialized low-pass filter that won't cut out any midrange, your punch dial is a wide-band midrange EQ control, and the drive control dials in the amount of gain and overall distortion. You'll never get bored with all the ways this pedal lets you craft your axe's sound!
