Fulltone PlimSoul Overdrive Pedal Reviews4.8/5.0 based on 4 customer reviews
Mike Fuller has done it again: A handwired pedal that features Stage 1 and Stage 2 Overdrive with Sustain. With a turn of the pedal knob, your guitar's volume knob, or a flick of your pick hand, it can go from Santana to Michael Bloomfield to Cream to SoloClapton to While My Guitar Gently Weeps. When that Stage 2 light glows, you get really musical sounding compression of your overdrive. This pedal added to your rig is like turning an ant farm into a condominium!

PlimSoul musicBest overdrive and distortion pedal I have ever used. It sounds amazing through a Vox AC15 and a Fender Deluxe Reverb. Sounds great with PRS and Gibson guitars with humbuckers, which is what the pedal is designed for, but still is excellent with strats and teles. No more need for boost pedals. This gives your lead tones anything from mild tp heavy distortion, so you can find your own sweet spots. The separate channels for type of clipping give you more flexibility. This pedal can generate some really great screaming notes for blues and rock.

New go-to pedalI was looking for a great OD pedal with true bypass and lots of flexibility. This thing is even better than I had hoped. Most pedals I take a week to find a sound I love. With this one, I can't find a bad sounding setting. Even with both stages cranked the distortion is high quality and totally usable. Harmonic content is complex and rich, while allowing your guitar to still sound like your guitar. I highly recommend this pedal!

The Cat's MeowI heard this unit on a video and immediately decided I "needed" it. I played a gig with it a few days later and it made a tremendous difference. It it almost like inspiration in a box with long smoky sustain that can really make your guitar talk. My advice is to get his unit and sell or throw away any modeling nonsense you may own. My only slight criticism is that the stage 2 knob is small and it is kind of hard to see but basically I set it and forget about it so it is not a problem. True bypass makes this a professional quality unit that you will want to keep forever. I don't know why they gave it such a weird name because is really the CAT'S MEOW.

AwesomeI have a LOT of overdrive pedals and wasn't going to try any more as none of them really did what I was looking for. I saw some great YouTube clips and then heard David Grissom was using a Plimsoul so I thought "OK. Last one."
Fantastic pedal. It can take a bone clean amp amd turn it into a very gainy monster. A very believable pedal. Most sound fake and buzzy or grainy to my ears but this one is what I was looking for.
