    I used the Standard with nearly 22, a strat US in a fender hot rod

    I imagine not even in a twin reverb!

    c is a resumé of 70 years has nowadays pink floyd has anthrax or metallica
    fans of acdc or red hot will find the priceless treasure. ca really, one has the impression of being pushed to marshall
    I mean of course the fender that has a very good sound clear and thus magnifies the sound.
    the only slight defect that is attributed to him in the general c is very acute presents but it's not true with the hot rod which is very round and can accept that we lower his (acute)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have a powerball with our cabinet and next to v30 for some other more modern metal things
    but frankly I rest knee before this pedal plugged into a hotrod that's a start amp range.
    c is very musical actually
    manufacturing quality is huge, unbreakable
    a great value for the future is certain c.
    are things that it's hard to explain eh! ca buy eyes closed!
    has put in all your pedalboard rather than buying pedals that are worth a crazy price with a single sound (Full. ..)

    Type distortion pedal Marshall Plexi and JCM800 with a boost 20db
    Controls: Boost - Level - Tone - Gain - Crunch
    Audio connectors: in out

    UTILIZATION

    Very simple to use, plug (on a clear channel of the amp) and it sounds.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Saturations are very realistic, the grain Marshall. It takes a little place in the pedalboard ... I most often use my Fender Telecaster Customshop of USA (Di Marzio humbuckers) on a Line6 Spider Valve MKII 212. I also have a compressor pedal Karl Martin.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for about 6 months. I have other pedals saturation (Ibanez TS9/BossMT2). I tried it in store and adopted. It is not given but for the record, there's nothing to say. ...

    At one time there was very little choice on what kind of quality of the pedal Carl Martin seemed an obvious choice for fans of his marshalliennne, today there are quite Wampler brand as I find it excellent (and plextortion plexidrive )
    Pedal and resold since I do not elect would do since I switched to Wampler

    Marshall in a box

    Carl Martin Plexi TonePublished on 12/15/11 at 16:02
    What we have here is an overdrive box with three settings. You have a clean boost, an overdrive, and a high gain channel. Traditionally I'm not a fan of these kinds of pedals because you usually get one good channel and 2 meh ones. The layout is simple enough. Tone, level, and controls for the three channels gain levels. It's a large footprint but considering what you get it's no big deal. It's supposed to be all your marshall tones in a box plus your clean boost feature.

    UTILIZATION

    Carl Martin effects are consistently pretty great for the price. The build quality is the highlight though. Handmade in Denmark... Can't beat it. Honestly this isn't a very difficult pedal to......

    UTILIZATION

    Carl Martin effects are consistently pretty great for the price. The build quality is the highlight though. Handmade in Denmark... Can't beat it. Honestly this isn't a very difficult pedal to figure out how to use. It's a trial and error thing dialing in settings and like most overdrive pedals you have to find the sweet spots.

    SOUND QUALITY

    I am very very picky about my overdrive pedals. I've tried most of the ones out there at all price ranges. For the most part I think you get what you pay for with some exceptions. These multi-drive pedals like the plexi tone are typically not too impressive even when they are boutiquey. Carl Martin is what I consider the tip of the boutique iceberg. But this pedal is pretty darn good. Most overdrive pedals falter due to tone issues. They always either sound too thin (TS9) or too muddy (digitech anything). The only really good pedals I've found for the most part are the hand wired upper end single switch pedals. But this Plexi Tone is one of the few stand outs in its price range. The tone control has a wide enough usable range that you can actually dial in a good eq. The high gain channel is admittedly a bit much sometimes and can sound bad at high settings, so be careful. The clean boost and overdrive channel though are really great. They do have a marshally flavor and remind me of the catalinbread DLS.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The value is the real deal maker for this pedal. It's not the best of its kind out there but for the price you are getting a great clean boost and a pretty darn good overdrive in one pedal. A lot of players could buy this and be done for finding an overdrive. It's really that useful and buys your amp another 2 or three channels. A lot of people use the high gain channel as a jumper for the regular channel. I kind of pretend it isn't there but I don't use it for high gain so...

    the boost is when he has ... -Aïeuhh hurts his ears-it ... very effective, I never exceed the setting is more than 9 hours because it sends severe! ideal to hear his little solo or wake up the sound a bit clearer.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Wouahouuu, she pleased this little box,
    The crunch is nice but slams abuse on the set because otherwise it's more of bah crunch.
    the high gain tears, I find it hotter than the crunch but did not shine.

    the thing that made me alluciner's responsiveness to attack the strings, its relatively high gain crunch we go from almost clean crunch at most, but with a great amount of the gain gradually.
    of even playing on the volume or tone of the guitar, it reacts nickel.

    if it is on low it's not really very subtle and muted overdrive (although by fiddling a bit)

    Another small point against by the knob "tone" is a zero with me! thoroughly is inaudible, but at least it has the advantage of not completely ettoufer sound as it often happens on distos (but the reverse is much background screaming tros)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I buy OCCAZ 'here on AF and I do not regret it.
    I also have a ToneLab SE, but I wanted a pure distortion of very good quality live rock in a clean of my mesa, well, I found!
    I use it with my telecaster mounted with Duncan, his slap!! brightness of the bridge pickup and smooth the neck pickup all in one pedal super transparent decoife to each note, thank you sir carl martin. ^ ^

    Pure analog overdrive as the name implies a single goal: send a plexi of the brand popularized by the biggest (well for me) I named the two Jimmy.
    The connection is simple, only the routing of the three knobs may surprise at first.
    The select knob is only effective if the drive knob is ON, in which case it switches to high gain. Obviously done to avoid having to press two buttons when one wants to spend crunch to high gain and vice versa.
    Knobs and casing super quality!
    A boost, a high gain channel and a channel from light crunch to distortion hairy!

    UTILIZATION

    The manual is very basic and even that which is available on the net (which is more complete) is not very informative. But hey! It's like buy a Marshall, you do not care of the manual thoroughly while you doing!

    SOUND QUALITY

    Here we enter the heart of the matter. I had before I went, a little checker all the forums and I noticed a guy called "Big Sioux Chief" I reckon, kept saying: "if you want the vintage sound Marshall pedals do not stop forcing the Fulltone OCD, but check out the Carl Martin Plexitone ". Yeah ... Fulltone is famous Yankee and all that ... and Plexi Dannois? Y s'fout of not'gueule or what?
    Okay, so I call the Pedal to Paris (not no! Michou!) And I found Davy (is it that you are the chef?) Who also advised me to try Plexitone. Neither one nor two, as my friend has an OCD, J'lui j'commande tax and the beast! Three day trial with two pedals. And there whoouuuufff! I pass of course, the pensioners of the village we take the emergency room because of the explosions of hearing aid to get to the point! (Aaaahhhh!) The fact is that after hours of adjustments of all kinds, crossing my amp sound vintage to modern, changes in the stratum scratch, the re LP stratum j't'en and password, bah! Mister Davy he was right! One, the OCD is the ball (see the test), the two Plexitone it is as well, the three Plexitone he did much better! Blues sounds through all the crunches in Frushiante Hendrix Jimmy Page through both pedals are equal in sound quality in grain. A little better all p'tit for OCD in very blues sounds. Now for what is sounds that tear her pussy to your grandmother! There are no photo! You can go with the Plexitone where you will never go with OCD. In pure vintage sounds hardos, a good old "Smoke on the Water" at the Start! With LP, you can revisit the "Ocean", "Whole Lotta Love" and other sound you got the master! on the other hand, too careful not to boost the treble on the clean sound of the amp, the pedal takes care of.
    Come on, a final adjustment that put me on the ass, stratum 3, 4 in volume, the micro serious crunch the amp at 8 am strong enough and miracle when you play "Under the bridge" it looks like the Red Hot!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Finally, those without a marshall and want to have this sound in their range without the booklet A fart, go ahead with his eyes closed! And it's not you, it's the crunch, the high gain, both with or without boost, and even boost the sound clear. And what I reckon even without a program to spin wool! So!

    Matos: 76 Start, Gibson LP, Rivera KnuckleHead 55, axis fuzz RM Voodoo Vibe RM, tube screamer, whammy, cry baby, Jamman.

    The pedal is fairly complete (boost + distortion + big crunch)
    Small flat on corecteur tone that does not serve to create a different but to coriger high frequencies. Indeed, as the name implies, it emulates the sound marshall and serves in any way to generate various distortion.
    The advantage is that we do not take the head 15 years.

    UTILIZATION

    I play telecaster american series with a fitted with Kinman broadcaster and a 4-position switch that allows me to have the pickups in series (loosely equivalent to a humbucker)
    I send all in one and I use a Fender Vibrolux Tubescreamer upstream to boost the mids and one for the light blues.

    The plexitone full well the picture. A big crunch a high gain distortion for large parts of savage rock and boost (which goes "too" fast in the turns) out of the mix in the solos. What more ??....

    SOUND QUALITY

    There, I admit they have done very Carl Martin. I do not know if it's the hair cell plexi (not like stock) but no problem it's the old marshall sound that made me discover and love hard rock and other music when I was sweet teen (it starts to date!)
    Awesome!! The inflections of the pedal according to the attack and the volume of the scratches left me in a state school. My Fender amp, the clean sound I love so much, is transformed into an old Marshall and switch the foot that's integral.
    The boost is nickel: neutral (Exess) powerful

    OVERALL OPINION

    Apart from the limited opportunities offered sound sound explorations we propose the plexi tone is legendary and is sufficient in itself.
    The price a bit pricey (+ 200th of new) at first, but good buying a pedal for crunch, one for distortion and a spicy boost would not make the note less salty so we will not be the miser.

    UTILIZATION

    I am convinced that a utilistaeur plexitone for several years, the only minor snag (for me) with the pedals is power!
    What to do when you do not want to play with or without, but keeping the same volume level?
    It make you put the mini-LEVEL at minimum!
    If qq has the solution I'm interested.
