OVERVIEW

A simple stripped down version of the Pro Series Plexitone.

The new `single channel` Carl Martin PlexiTone was designed in association with Pete Thorn, and is housed in a small pedal-board friendly housing with 3 knobs and 1 switch. Apart from Pete's slight modifications that give this new 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 Plexi also incorporates the new 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!

    Comments about Carl Martin PlexiTone Single Channel Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I'm normally a player than plays clean and overdrive sounds, but recently started building a small pedalboard and been looking to round it out with additional effects that I didn't have yet. Upon reading the reviews here on this pedal and the enticement of an open box price I purchased it. I love it the moment I plugged it in and the gold sparkle housing looks awesome as well. Best distortion pedal I've ever heard.

        Comments about Carl Martin PlexiTone Single Channel Guitar Effects Pedal:

        What can I say that other people aren't saying? I combine this with an MXR Carbon Copy and a TC Hall of Fame through my fairly inexpensive amp, and I don't feel like I'm missing having a Marshall or an even more expensive boutique amp at all. It sounds great. I've probably cycled through about 5 dirt pedals prior to this one. This one just feels and sounds right to me, like there's no need for me to continue questing for perfection.

              very open, lots of grind, lots of distortion, more JCM800 than plexi though.
              Awesome pedal

                What a GREAT Pedal! I purchased this pedal because I watched some of the youtube videos on this pedal and they ALL sounded GREAT! Nice job Carl Martin! This has to be one of the BEST sounding pedals I've ever heard (and I own about 20 different distortion/overdrive pedals). It feels very amp like and very natural.

                  Like having an extra Marshall amp, sounds like the real deal. Compared it to some expensive tube amps, hard to tell the difference. 5 Stars!

                    Amazing tone and fantastic versatility. Go from a low gain overdrive to insane Plexi on 11. Love this pedal. Will never leave my board.
