We redesigned everything about it layout and parts wise. The casing is now smaller like an MRX size unit.
It features the big old school film caps which are way fuller sounding and went with carbon resistors because they are a bit warmer than what we were using. The biggest difference you would notice right away is the taper in the gain control. The old ones were bunched up at the end. The new ones are spread out and have a even progression to the max gain setting. It also has a better note decay to my ears because of the way we configured the new gain control. Tech terms, we shunted 100k off the input signal to ground which helps with the decay and a smoother feel. I think this version cleans up even faster on the guitar volume knob because of the input signal being padded down now.

This unit is VERY dynamic, touch-sensitive Plexi tone in a box! Between a broken up JTM45 to as gainy as an early 80’s JCM800. Complete with that mid-range attack that we all know and love. The Drive control will take you tone through many Plexi era characteristics and is also very responsive to the controls on your guitar..
As you advance the DRIVE control this unit will morph into different Plexi era characteristics.. At the bottom of the sweep a nice JTM45 ish tone is present, roll back your volume knob on the guitar and the clipping goes away, just like the real thing! Advance the TONE control while turning up the DRIVE and all of a sudden you are in 68 PLEXI 100 land.. FULL ON JCM 800 ROAR when dimed!
And it still cleans up via pick attack and volume control at the guitar with humbuckers or single coils!!!!
This is one wicked pedal and has a uniquely modified mid range bark to it.. I highly recommend this unit to anyone looking for that HUGE, high gain, rippin, PLEXI tone that actually cleans up like the real deal..
