Tech 21 Hot Rod Plexi

Peter9797, 29.09.2014
Great overdrive pedal with a really nice full sound, capturing that plexi tone. The controls have a wide range which gives complete control over the sound, no harshness in the top end and plenty of gain if required. The addition of the 'Hot' footswitch is great for lifting for a solo sound, or to dial in an alternative tone if used at lower volumes with an existing boost pedal. Recommended!

Sooo close to it

peterbrusch, 10.02.2015
My goal: Marshall sound, accurate Plexi sound, from my pedalboard, no matter what amp I am hanging on.
So far everything has tried, even the RAMBLE FX MARVEL DRIVE (expensive fun), AMT M2 (really good sound) and various other, through the bank very expensive colleagues, but so true Plexi did not sound.
So now the HOT-ROD PLEXI of Tech21. Various videos seen, among other things the direct comparison oiriginal Plexi-Amp vs.. Plexi pedal and what can I say: This is it.
This pedal is not a distortion pedal, but a sound unit that creates an overall sound, including the typical 4x12 "box in the middle of the deep, so close to the original that I can not get enough of the part So compact and so organic, so lively. SO must sound a Marshall.
In normal position you can adjust it so that it tugs depending on the attack or even gas, the Boost packs again a right shake on it, although not much louder, but fatter. Pedals can also be switched to the HOT-ROD PLEXI, no problem. The response always corresponds to that of a real amp. Add to this the absolutely easy-going and almost silent foot switches.
I myself have a JCM 800 and a JCM 2000 that sound really good, but the HOT-ROD PLEXI really did it to me, because it gives me the possibility, with each neutral amp (for me FENDER HOT ROD DELUXE III or ROLAND CUBE 80 G) to sound right after Marshall.
Certainly, soundpurists will show me that the original sounds better, no question, but the HOT-ROD PLEXI is soooo close.
