That Pedal Show – Do You Think I’m Plexi? Wampler, Lovepedal, JHS, Fire & Rothwell

Published on Sep 9, 2016

The term ‘Plexi’ commonly refers to Marshall amps made from the mid 1960s to the early 1970s; non-master volume heads that featured a gold Plexiglas control panel. They include certain JTM45s (including ‘Bluesbreaker' combos) and of course the now legendary 50- and 100-watt Super Lead, Super bass and Major models. It’s a huge range of tonal ground when you consider that those amps lie at the heart of tones from Eric Clapton (John Mayall's Bluesbreakers and Cream), Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Paul Kossoff, Edward Van Halen and many more, not to mention more recent stars including Joe Bonamassa and Eric Johnson.

How close can these pedals hope to get in evoking those all-time classic tones?
