This two channel tube distortion pedal 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 Radial's also unique passive-interactive EQ, produces four generations of Marshall Plexi tones worthy of a Shakespearian Ode.
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!
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.
The Radial Tonebone Plexitube takes metal guitar one step beyond anything you have experienced so far. God save the Queen.!
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.
- Radial products are rock solid Review by Jorge
Value Quality Features
Let me tell you, It does not disappoint. This thing is rangey! You can dial in anything from 60's & 70's style overdrive to damn near death metal tones (to e anyway).
It has a nice sizzle that is warm and round. I play mostly blues and some crunch and this delivers.
All radial products are made tough- all steel construction that is sure to take a beating.
I don't mind paying a little extra for the quality and quietness of Radial. (Posted on 4/27/2012)
