An upgraded version of the infamous Plexi-Drive with new 3-band EQ and more.
Based on the classic Wampler Pedal “Plexi-Drive”, the Plexi-Drive Deluxe builds on the foundation of the original and gives you considerably more control to shape your tone. With a 3-band active EQ and additional brightness control, the Plexi-Drive Deluxe takes a huge step forward into the modern era of pedals. Complete with the perfectly voiced pregain booster, you can achieve almost any Plexi tone from virtually any amp.
Since the early '60s, Marshall Amplifiers® have lead the way in rock tones with its legendary tight overdrive and coveted bass response. Early rock legends such as Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Cream, and AC/DC helped lead the way in creating some of the most iconic rock tones ever produced and catapulted Marshall® into rock legendary status.
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 cover everything from Vintage ’68 style Plexi 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 and can allow you to dial in your low end at lower volume gigs or at bedroom volume levels. To compliment this, Wampler also added a bright switch to add high end sparkle, which makes changing from bright to dark guitars (and amps) a breeze. The Plexi-Drive Deluxe also features a one knob, pre-gain boost soft click switch that is voiced like “that ‘valve’ screaming green overdrive with pronounced mids” to help push your leads into thick creamy 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 versatile M.I.A.B. (Marshall® in a Box) can finally be over.

Comments about Wampler Plexi-Drive British Overdrive Pedal:
If your playing a modeling amp, solid state or the sorts. I would pass this buy. I think you tend to appreciate the quality of wampler products when you run them through a decent tube amp on the clean channel. There is something very natural and open about his pedals. You still hear your guitar, you still hear your amp, but the pedal just adds a transparent character, in such a natural way. I'm a recovering pedal junkie, I have cheap stuff and expensive stuff. Yes the cheaper distortion/overdrive pedals can get you a similar sound but they always seem to lack a smooth transparency that the wampler pedals have.A certain feel and response to your fingers and playing. (I own the catapulp, plexi-drive and pinnacle deluxe) Playing with a full band, does it make that much of a difference? Most will argue no, but man , when you sit down and really listen to your sound, these pedals can't be beat.Does it sound like a Plexi? I don't know, never owned one, but I can say it provides you with really nice overdrive, distortion tones that are touch sensitive and the added eq controls can shape your sound in any direction you wish. The bright switch is great for darker amps and the bass boost really fattens up the sound making it just fuller and meatier. If you like your guitar, you like the way your amp sounds, and you just want more of a good thing, or different flavor you can't beat these pedals. Great customer service from Wampler.
