Extensively tested and .... Jain!

Jürgen304, 01.01.2017
Have seen the part in various Youtube videos and ordered it.
I tested it with the following devices:
For comparison, I had the test:
BOSS Bluesdriver BD-2, HARLEY BENTON Goldenface, MARSHALL Jackhammer and MARSHALL Guvnor GV-2.
Everything was switched with a Voodoo-Lab HEX.
Thus each note, every chord and each reef could be quickly compared with a different test candidate.

It was always "only" the clean channel of the respective amp.

After I had adjusted the PLEXI TONE Lo-Gain as I liked it (Tone 10, Level 12, Gain 14 o'clock), I tried to bend the other pedals to exactly the same sound.
This succeeded, except for nuances, with "all" candidates, whereby the JACKHAMMER approached the Carl Martin part closest.
After the dry comparison in the quiet room, I then ran some Trademark Rocksongs over the PA in Livelautstärke and jammed with the different pedals, whereby the PLEXI-TONE significantly less penetrated, like the JACKHAMMER!
So great is the representation of the treble strings, so badly the transmission of the bass strings prevailed that could be heard in the "sound mix of the jam" ....

For me the most amazing thing was that there is "THE" Plexisound is not there !!
If you have found a setting that appeals to you, the overall sound changed drastically, if one at the amp the volume increased or changed ...!
The most violent happened with the MARSHALL TSL.
Also the ENGL THUNDER reacted clearly, while the ENGL INVADER was most tolerant.

What I have not mentioned yet:

The whole appearance of the PLEXITONES in haptics, weight, potis is really, really "cheap" ...

In something that weighs nothing can be synonymous nix in it, which justified the price of 144, - Euro, especially since the sounder result or the practical use, at least for me, is quite unsatisfactory.

I'm torn to send the part back.
As a collector I would like to keep it as a user, I have to say, for example, that the MARSHALL JACKHAMMER for 53, - Euro material and provides sound nearly identical.

I think I'll send it back ... :-(
