The Plextortion is a distortion pedal that was originally designed to emulate a JCM800 with celestion greenbacks (Back in Black era AC/DC tones through van halen, dokken, ratt, and all those amazing 80"s rock "cranked Marshall" tones). It has a very "brown" sounding distortion, a bit similar to the pinnacle pedal.
It differs from the pinnacle in that it is a tighter distortion, more like preamp tube distortion where the pinnacle is a bit looser, more like power tube distortion.
The Super Plextortion differs from the standard Plextortion in that it has 3 totally different gain structures. It is more of a transparent type of tone (more of a celestion vintage 30 type of tone) where the standard plextortion has more of a mid focused marshally "greenback" sound to it.
Basically, the super plextortion is more of a modern sounding distortion where the standard plextortion is more vintage sounding. I"ve noticed that some guys like play their distortion pedals that emulate marshall tones THROUGH a marshall. Let"s be honest - I can play a chorus pedal through a marshall and get a very "marshally" sounding chorus pedal... In my opinion this isn"t a fair or accurate representation of a pedal. Because of this, I record my clips and videos through everyday affordable guitars and amps in order to be as accurate as possible. Features High grade film capacitors and resistors picked for their superior sound Completely true bypass Ultra-bright LED for ease of use Battery connection and 9v power jack (barrel plug like Boss) Purple/black/silver sparkle in color 5 knobs - gain, volume, bass, treble, mids 2 switches - gain boost (3 levels), brightness (3 levels) 2.5" x 4.5" Plenty of volume potential if you need it switch for modern/vintage tones
