PlexiTone & AC-Tone Single-Channel Versions
Carl Martin introduces single-channel versions of its PlexiTone and AC-Tone pedals.
The new single channel Carl Martin PlexiTone was designed in association with Pete Thorn, and is housed in a small pedal-board friendly housing with 3 knobs and 1 switch. Apart from Pete's slight modifications designed to give the new pedal a tighter bottom-end and slightly softer high frequencies, it is the same gain structure as the High Gain setting on the original Pro-Series PlexiTone. The single Plexi also incorporates DC-DC converter circuitry, so the pedal can be powered by a regulated 9V Power Supply but will still operate on the same +-12V level as the original AC powered PlexiTone.
The new single channel AC-Tone, is a smaller pedal-board friendly, single channel version of the original Pro-Series AC-Tone. It features 3 knobs and 1 switch and has a slightly beefed up Gain section, but shares the very same tone as its big sister, according to the company. The single AC-Tone also incorporates DC-DC converter circuitry, so the pedal can be powered by a regulated 9V Power Supply but will still operate on the same +-12V level as the original AC powered AC-Tone.
