We do all our own tunes. I write with the bass player. I tend towards a distorted tone. She loves the aggressive nature of this approach but she sounds like Nina Simone. Not on purpose..it is just built in.
We often start a tune with could pass as an intro on the first Black Sabbath album...but that could quickly lead into vocals with a lighter sound...even my Martin.
So I use 6 overdrives starting with the light sounding ts 808 and go right up to a Heavy Metal overdrive. I am always looking for an overdrive that is rich and full but will lay down nicely behind the vocals. The Guvnor 2 does this well.
It is a Plexi sound most certainly and I have another myself. What is different is it has a knob that adds the resonance of a Marshall 4x12 cab. this makes the sound having a breathless gasping for air quality to the low end. Nothing else does this.
