The Wampler Plextortion Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal is designed to emulate a ‘JCM800’ with Celestion Greenbacks think Back in Black era AC/DC, all the way through to Van Halen, Dokken, Ratt, and Guns'N'Roses). The Plextortion has a very brown sounding distortion, in a way, quite similar to Wampler’s Pinnacle pedal.
The Plextortion pedal differs from the Pinnacle in that it is a tighter distortion, more like pre amp tube distortion where the pinnacle is a bit looser, more like power tube distortion. This difference, although hardly noticeable to your average person, is hugely important when looking for ‘that’ sound, Never before has a pedal given that high gain tone that would appear to be pre-amp driven and power-amp driven.
