Since the early 60’s, Marshall Amplifiers® have lead the way in rock tones with its legendary tight overdrive and coveted bass response. Early rock legends such as: Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Cream, and AC/DC helped lead the way in creating some of the most iconic rock tones ever produced and catapulted Marshall Amplifiers into rock legendary status.
With these huge influential musicians and tones in mind, Brian Wampler sat down and designed a pedal that could help him produce the same guitar tones of some of his rock heroes – without costing him an arm and a leg by shelling out the money for a vintage Marshall® stack. Enter the Wampler Plexi-Drive.
The Plexi-Drive’s unique gain structure is capable of running the tonal rock gamut! From bluesy style 18-watt Marshall tones to the all out massive rock tones of a JTM-45® cranked to ten (or 11), the Plexi-Drive can handle it all with ease. With the bass boost option, you can emulate the feeling of the low-end thump of a 4×12” cabinet (or two) at the flick of a switch. The bass boost will allow you to dial in your low end at lower volume gigs or at bedroom volume levels.
To this day, the Plexi-drive is still one Brian’s favorite pedals and never leaves his personal pedal board. For a man who is said to be never satisfied with his tone, the Plexi-Drive has stayed with him throughout and is still inspiring him gig after gig.
Your search for the perfect M.I.A.B. (Marshall® in a Box) can finally be over. The Plexi-Drive will give you the crunch, response, and feeling that your rig begs for. Whether you are playing sold out shows or rocking out by yourself – the Plexi-Drive will inspire you to create your own flavor of rock!
