Carl Martin Single Channel Plexitone

There are many pedals around which claim to be "a Marshall in a box". Unlike many the Carl Martin `single channel` PlexiTone really lives up to that claim.
The `single channel` PlexiTone was co-designed by CM and Pete Thorn and aside for some mods which deliver a tighter bottom end and softer high frequencies it shares the exact gain structure with the High Gain setting of the original Pro-Series PlexiTone.
When using this pedal, almost any amp at the end of the chain receives this Marshall-like midrange, full of guts and power. The `single channel` PlexiTone does not offer much soft gain and you will find it to be delivering an already powerful drive with the drive knob set to as little as 3 o'clock. From there and on it just becomes more and more of that Marshall sound pumped up with gain.
We found Pete's contribution to the design fantastic, the high frequencies do not hurt the ear, yet, they are there. But in case you want more or less edge, tweaking the tone knob will do the job.
The pedal also responses well to a rolled-off volume knob, it cleans just like a good amp would. This allows you to control your tone in such a delicate way which is just fantastic.
The single Plexi incorporates Carl Martin's DC-DC converter circuitry, so the pedal can be powered by a regulated 9V Power Supply but will still operate on the same +-12V level as the original AC powered PlexiTone. It is built to last and really easy to control.
To sum it up, it is a Marshall in a box.
