Wampler Plextortion Pedal Wampler has discontinued this pedal. get it now!
The Plextortion is a distortion pedal that was originally designed to emulate a JCM800® with Celestion® Greenbacks (If you think of those great tones from Back in Black era AC/DC, all the way through to (post DLR) Van Halen, Dokken, Ratt, Guns’N’Roses and all those amazing 80’s rock cranked Marshall® tones). It has a very brown sounding distortion, in a way, quite similar to our Pinnacle pedal. It differs from the Pinnacle in that it is a tighter distortion, more like pre amp tube distortion where the pinnacle is a bit looser, more like power tube distortion. This difference, although hardly noticeable to your average person, is hugely important when looking for “that” sound, Never before has a pedal given that high gain tone that would appear to be pre-amp driven and power-amp driven.
