The Keeley Electronics El Rey Dorado is your go-to box for that iconic Plexi tone! Yes, there is a wide range of 1960s Plexi Amp Tones when you factor in power, which tubes are installed, and which speakers and/or cabinet is used, but the El Rey Dorado pedal lines up and hits the core tone with a true bullseye! One of the many reference points for the tone was Keeley’s own JTM 45/100® full stack - a dead-on reissue Marshall® with crazy cool custom-made–vintage-recreation speakers and dual transformers to transfer the load of the 4 EL-84s!
The Keeley El Rey Dorado covers a lot of classic British amp tones by featuring two gain modes with the Power Toggle. With this Power Toggle switch you have control over the compression and harmonics. Low-Power mode is louder, has more girth, and has fewer harmonics for a more old-school tone. High-Power mode has more compression, more harmonics, and a tighter, more defined tone. Old-school crunch in Low Power mode, super lead tones in the High-Power mode.
