definintely a wow pedal

It's marshall in a pedal, spot on. It'll nail any tone you're after, long as you have the skill to match! ac/dc, zz top, srv, it's all in here. I play thru a fender deluxe reissue, the tones will blow you away. Stop reading reviews and buy this pedal. This is my first wampler purchase btw, definitely won't be the last.

Wampler Plexi-Drive

I play through a Tone King Falcon so I can get vintage American sounds out of it and the Plexi-Drive to get those Marshall tones, Absolutely love this pedal and keep it on more than off.

A Wow.

I have a Wampler Ace Thirty that I got to fill a need i have in my band for Tom Petty-type sounds. That's an amazing pedal that does just what it says it will. Based on the quality of that pedal I dropped the coin on a Plexi Drive. Boy was I right. I play mainly a strat through a Peavey Delta Blues with a 15 inch speaker. The Plexi Drive does exactly what it says it will. It delivers an old-school Marshall sound through my amp. It's uncanny how this pedal sounds like the Marshall sound I have in my head. With this pedal I've added anything from Hendrix to Trower to SRV to zz top to ACDC to my rig. The whole gain range is beautiful and articulate. I haven't even gotten to my humbucker guitar yet but I think I'll love that too. This one is worth the money....unless you have a vintage Marshall that can sound cranked at low volumes that is.

Incredibly Versatile

This pedal is certainly the best I've ever bought in the way of overdrives. It is so dynamic. You can go from a wonderful clean boost to all out JTM roar by dialing the gain knob clockwise. Plenty of gain for me, although I've heard others say it's not enough. I guess it depends on what you're shooting for. For 60's and 70's rock, anything but metal really, I'd say it has all the gain you would need. It also cleans up beautifully as you turn down your guitar volume. So responsive in this regard. Wampler really nailed the middle eq structure of the Marshall amp as well. Regardless of where you have the tone (seems to be a high cut or boost, not much effect on mids and lows), that Marshall character is always there. The bass boost is great for single coil bridge pickups in my opinion. However, when playing at gig volume I leave it off. This is truly a classic. Thank you Wampler!

Marshall in a BOX

Excellent pedal - I was blown away within the first 5 seconds...and that should always be the case with tones! Running it through a Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue and what a tone. Kenny Stratton was great as usual. Very helpful. Sweetwater rocks!
