Carl Martin Plexitone

Stomp boxA pedal that brings across the legendary and unmatched sound of the early Plexis? Doesn't everyone want that? There have been regular attempts to do this, with mixed results. The Carl Martin Plexitone has risen to the challenge and really sounds very authentic. Not only does it provide a classic Crunch channel, it also includes the Hi-Gain channel, something originally only possible with multiple pedals.

Included is also a clean boost, with which one can go straight into the amp Amp without the Plexi. Overall, this pedal may not be a bargain, but compared with an old Plexi it is an outright gift.

The easiest way to switch to an authentic Marshall Plexi Sound

TheRelact, 13.02.2014
The Carl Martin Plexitone is built very well and provides you with 3 pedals of excellent sound quality. The good selection of effects work responsive and versatile, the pedal is very simple to use. The Carl Martin Plexitone adds a clean, crunchy or even a high-gain Plexitone to any Amp and can simply be operated with crunch setting, high gain setting, boost, tone and volume. The knobs are chickenhead styled. The Carl Martin Plexitone is one of the best and cheapest possibilities to get an authentic Marshall sound. It sounds like a real Marshall Plexi and gives you the feeling of a dynamic tube amp, very responsive and sensitive to your pick attack. The Carl Martin Plexitone provides your tone with crunch, distortion and high-gain that can make even a Fender or Vox Amp sound like a Marshall Plexi Amp. The boost functions very clean and does not add any Drive to your sound, just volume and transparency. Distortion and high gain do not sound like modern metal but like good vintage Rock 'n Roll. I recommend the Carl Martin Plexitone to all players who want to switch casually from their favorite Amp sound to an authentic Marshall Plexi sound.

Pédale d'overdrive/distortion typée Marshall Plexi/JCM800, comme son nom l'indique. Elle ne conviendrait donc pas à un musicien qui chercherait une pédale de disto polyvalente pouvant générer d'autres types de timbres. Elle est équipée de 3 canaux activables séparément ou conjointement : boost, crunch et high gain. Une alimentation 230V est intégrée à la pédale (donc pas besoin de piles ou de transfo).

Les plus :

- Son tout à fait pro tant sur scène que pour l'enregistrement
- 3 canaux permettant d'avoir 3 saturations différentes au bout du pied
- Qualité de fabrication/solidité
- boost clean et transparent
- Qualité du son

Les moins :

- Entre les basses qui sont trop prononcées à mon goût (ce qui assourdit le son et l'étouffe) et les aigus plutôt tranchants (mais néanmoins atténuables avec le potard "tone"..), il y a peu de place pour les médiums qui peinent à se faire entendre et semblent complètement absorbés
- Difficile d'obtenir un drive rond/chaleureux/crémeux style TubeScreamer (mais pour rappel ce n'est pas le but de cette pédale typée Marshall)
- La saturation n'évolue plus beaucoup dans la seconde moitié de la course des potards "crunch" et "high gain" je trouve, alors qu'à l'inverse ils sont très sensibles dans la première moitié de la course (critique valable aussi pour le potard "tone" où je trouve d'ailleurs la seconde moitié de la course du potard inaudible/inutilisable car beaucoup trop d'aigus!!)
- Peu de différences de son entre les canaux "crunch" et "high gain" (si ce n'est que le dernier permet forcément une saturation plus agressive)

Malgré toutes ces remarques, j'utilise néanmoins cette pédale principalement pour de la scène et elle fait son job.
