Dynamic British Plexi Tone in One Pedal

Wampler has taken their popular Plexi-Drive Standard and added a few updates. The result is the Wampler Plexi-Drive Deluxe effects pedal. This pedal features a plexi drive circuit on the left side and a midrange boost circuit on the right. Active three-band EQ knobs boost and cut your bass, middle, and treble ranges with precision, and bass boost and bright boost switches add even more low or high end when you need it. This vibrant effects pedal is hand-built and features true-bypass circuitry.

Vintage British Tone to Boot

Wampler has taken a whole host of popular sounds and forged them into a compact overdrive effects pedal. Anything from that unmistakable '70s classic rock sound, to country rock, late-'90s pop rock, pop punk, modern country, or even a slick bluesy Hendrix-styled output is right at your fingertips. Take the time to get to know your Wampler Plexi-Drive Deluxe pedal to hear the array of tones your axe can achieve.

Shaping Your Output

The "Pre Gain" switch on the bottom right of the Plexi-Drive Deluxe fires up a particular flavor of midrange punch, and features its own gain level control. On the left, you have a "Post Gain" switch which engages the plexi drive circuit. On this circuit, you have a level control as well as a post-gain dial. An active three-band EQ control layout, as opposed to a passive system, provides your signal with more accurate frequency manipulation when adding or cutting your bass, middle, or treble.

Hand-Built True-Bypass Circuitry

Nothing helps a signal purr its best more than a piece of gear made with love. Your Wampler Plexi-Drive Deluxe effects pedal is hand-built using choice film capacitors and resistors to give your output powerful color. True bypass circuitry also keeps the original character of your signal intact and unadulterated as it makes it way from your guitar to your amplifier even when this pedal is disengaged.

Wampler Plexi-Drive Deluxe Effects Pedal

The Plexi-Drive Deluxe is a direct descendent of the Plexi-Drive Standard but with a few upgraded features. Like the original, the Plexi-Drive Deluxe's unique gain structure can take you from bluesy style 18-watt Marshall tones to the all-out massive rock tones of a JTM-45 cranked to ten, or even eleven. With the addition of an all-new active 3 band Bass/Mids/Treble EQ stack - you can now have even more tonal control. With the bass boost option, you can emulate the feeling of the low-end thump of a 4x12" cabinet (or two) at the flick of a switch. The bass boost will allow you to dial in your low end at lower volume gigs or at bedroom volume levels. Along with the bass switch, Wampler added a bright switch to add highs - which makes changing from bright to dark guitars a breeze. The Plexi-Drive Deluxe also features a one-knob, pre-gain boost soft click switch that is voiced like that "famous overdrive with pronounced mids" - to help push your leads into overdrive.

The Plexi-Drive Deluxe will fill your Marshall void and give you the crunch, response, boost and feeling that your rig begs for. Whether you are playing sold out shows or rocking out by yourself - the Plexi-Drive Deluxe will take your tone and allow you to create your own flavor of rock!

Your search for the perfect M.I.A.B. (Marshall in a Box) can finally be over.

Features:

- Hand-built in the U.S.A.
- High-grade film capacitors and resistors picked for their superior sound and response
- Completely true bypass
- Battery connection and 9v power jack (barrel plug like Boss)
- Pre gain TS style boost for adding that lil' extra
- Bass and bright boosts switches for increased versatility
zZounds Expert Review
This pedal is an awesome update to the already superb Plexi-Drive pedal. My favorite addition was the Pre-Gain switch that acts as a boost to help saturate your drive tone even more. Best of all, it operates independently from the main Post-Gain section and therefore can be used on its own. The Bass switch beefs up your lows and really does work well to combat the thinner tone you get out of running some amps at lower volumes. The Bright switch really makes a difference in sound; it's sharp and cutting -- perfect for darker amps or when your tone needs a push out in front of a band. It really does sound like a Marshall, but most importantly, it even responds like a Marshall, and because of that, I think this pedal really hits the mark.
