Pure British Tube Tone in a Compact Pedal!
The Radial Plexitube is a two channel tube distortion pedal that combines the natural warmth and harmonic generation of a 12AX7 tube with the control and saturation of Radial's unique multi-stage solid-state drive circuit. This combination provides incredible gain with tons of overtones and, when combined with our unique passive-interactive EQ, produces four generations of Marshall Plexi tones worthy of a Shakespearian Ode. Build like a little Sherman tank, yet compact enough to fit on your pedalboard, the Tonebone Plexitube pedal is among the world's most compact tube distortions. The Plexitube uses a proprietary hybrid circuit that combines the control of a dual-stage solid-state front end with the natural harmonic generation and warmth that only a real live 12AX7 tube can generate. The Plexitube may just be the ultimate in guitar distortion!Radial Tonebone Plexitube Tube Distortion At-a-Glance:
- Ultra-quiet Operation
- Built for the Stage
Just as you'd expect form Radial, the Plexitube is built for very low self-noise. The tube is mounted on its side to keep the pedal profile down for easy pedal action and is powered by an external 15VDC supply. Power is internally regulated and filtered to eliminate noise. To further reduce self-noise a unique ground plane circuit topology is employed that makes Tonebone tube distortion pedals the quietest of all pedals in their class.
Built for the Stage
The Tonebone Plexitube is built tough. The 14-gauge steel construction reduces stress on the PC board and a baked enamel finish will keep your Tonebone Plexitube looking great for years! Designed to enhance on-stage functionality, the Plexitube features two distinct distortion channels for on-the-fly transition between rhythm and lead settings. Channel-1 has been optimized for rhythm with chunk rhythm tones and scooped out mids for a thunderous wall-of-sound and complete world domination. Channel-2 is optimized to produce razor-sharp cut for solos and sustaining mids that are so smooth, they can make a grown man cry. This is augmented with an effects loop that can automatically turn your delay on for leads. No tap dancing!
The Plexitube is your 'Plexi-in-a-box'! Just plug the Plexitube output into your amp to open up a world of tube driven British rock tones. The separate trim, drive, contour and EQ controls give you instant command of both rhythm and lead distortion settings as well as a true bypass mode that ensures that nothing gets in the way of your pure guitar-to-amp tone. When the Plexitube is off, true-bypass connectivity ensures the natural tone of your guitar goes directly to your amp without obstruction or a tone robbing load. But that's just the beginning because you've also got a foot-switchable effects loop at your disposal thats there when you need it and out of your clean signal path when you don't. You will be amazed at the breadth and scope of the sounds just waiting to be discoverd in this truly versatile pedal!
