With the Purple Plexifier distortion pedal, you can expect a tight bottom end with bright (but not harsh) highs and a thick mid-range that creates a distinct and powerful distortion. Aimed at capturing the true essence of the renowned ‘Rock & Roll sound’, the Purple Plexifier has a gain range of +6dB to +67dB.

The Purple Plexifier by One Control is the first Amp-In-A-Box design. The goal was to reproduce the classic sound of that iconic late sixties amp that has a similar name.
The Purple Plexifier combines a gain range of +6db - +67db, a rare high dynamic range and a low dynamic range that is comparable to the best tube amplifiers. The tight bottom end with bright (but not harsh) highs will amaze you. Moreover, the thick mid-range, which can be scooped or flattened with the MID control, will give you fuller tone . Use this pedal to create a three dimensional distortion by itself or use it in conjunction with the amp’s own distortion settings to create your own sound.
The true test of any distortion effect is its ability to react to any playing style and intensity. The Purple Plexifier rewards the guitarist with a feel that is rare and responsive, no matter the type of pickups. The stretchable distortion patterns that follow the musicians playing force separate this compact pedal from any other on the market. Even though this pedal was designed with a specific shade of distortion in mind, it lends itself to as many styles as the musician can explore!
Like all One Control Effects pedals, the Purple Plexifier is housed in a machined and anodized compact aluminum case, with only the best components assure years of trouble free use. The pedal can be powered by 9v battery, but we do recommend the use of a balanced power supply to maximize the life and quality of this effect.

Introducing the One Control BJF Series FX Pedals
The only musical instrument products that outnumber guitar effect pedals are probably the guitars themselves. There are companies who specialize in cheap pedals, expensive pedals, single effects, multi-effects, analog, digital, boutique and so on. There are companies that specialize in one type of effect and others that offer every possible effect
What there are very few of, are companies that offer a custom designed series of pedals by a renowned and reputable designer with a vision. One Control and Bjorn Juhl have collaborated to create pedals that are able to compliment each other, but can still be used individually.
Who or what is BJF?
BJF is Bjorn Juhl, the mastermind behind companies like Mad Professor and Bearfoot FX (both boutique pedal manufacturers). Bjorn is known as a legend in certain areas of the world, and is known for casting aside popular concepts and principals in his effect designs… Analog, digital, true bypass, buffered….Bjorn does whatever it takes to dial in the sound he envisions. They say that musicians paint their sounds on silence... With that in mind, take a look at the 22 Bjorn Juhl designed pedals from One Control, and start thinking about your next canvas!
