Wampler Pedals - Plextortion Distortion
The Plextortion is a distortion pedal that was originally designed to emulate a “JCM800®” with Celestion Greenbacks Think of those great tones from Back in Black era AC/DC, all the way through to Van Halen, Dokken, Ratt, Guns'N'Roses and all those amazing 80's rock tones. It has a very brown sounding distortion, in a way, quite similar to the Pinnacle pedal.
It differs from the Pinnacle in that it is a tighter distortion, more like pre amp tube distortion where the pinnacle is a bit looser, more like power tube distortion. This difference, although hardly noticeable to your average person, is hugely important when looking for “that” sound. Never before has a pedal given that high gain tone that would appear to be pre-amp driven and power-amp driven.
