Tech 21 Hot-Rod Plexi Review - Stack Attack
Although most amp modeling is digital, Tech 21 has always created its amp emulations using analog circuitry. The Hot-Rod Plexi pedal ($179) is the latest example. It’s an effects processor that’s designed to be used with an amp, so unlike the SansAmp processors, it has no speaker emulation built in.

Pedal quite a bit of buzz at the moment, saw the ad that Tech21 fact, the comparison with a JMP head with footswitch ...
if the drive is in the middle register see low gain, immediately there is a little chemical listed in acute post must love, pushing the gain down hurts because it brings out a very muddy melodic side not .. . despite the settings of tone it's hard to dig and find a good balance, maybe my guitar or amp stinks?? I do not know ... but not rendering gives the Vintage category yet it is supposed to spit out a JMP ...
The boost is not at all convincing nothing to do with Xotic, Fulltone, CAE therefore there is a disappointment, coupling with another boost does not give great results because the base is rather average
Just to say I got rid of as soon as possible, this pedal does absolutely not sound like a JMP Marshall-like rigor ... there is a side that I find not at all natural sounds chemical limit, it must surely come techno SamsAmp ... anyway marriage with my Fender 65 was not very convincing, after a Hiwatt Custom 50 is the preferred config Brett Kingman, the results should be satisfactory. .. I'll see on the side of the Xotic SL which seems more natural
