Carl Martin PlexiTone Dual Channel
Again, as with most Carl Martin gain/distortion pedals, the first footswitch and control give you 20 db of crystal clean/clear Boost. ÊThe Boost can be used independently or with either of the two gain stages. ÊJust a quick reminder though, the right footswitch engages both Gain stages, pressing the middle footswitch on itÕs own will do nothing to your sound. ÊThe footswitch on the right side takes you to the first gain stage, ÔCrunchÕ. ÊThe ÔCrunchÕ control allows you to set the amount of gain/distortion, and the Level & Tone controls obviously the volume and EQ of the channel. ÊThis channel should remind you of your old Plexi (mmmmm) with the volume around 7-8É. very Page, Blackmore, Angus. ÊSwitching on the middle footswitch (in conjunction with the right footswitch) brings us to the High-Gain channel. ÊOnce again, the ÔHigh-GainÕ control allows you to set the amount of distortion, and the Level & Tone controls the volume and EQ. ÊThe High-Gain channel has a more compressed and mid-scooped sound than the Crunch channel, making it more of an 80Õs distortion like Randy Rhodes or Iron Maiden.
Whether you use a single channel amplifier, or a multi-channel amplifier, you will want to start with the cleanest sound you can, at a level you can work with. ÊThe last thing you want to do is try and distort distortionÉ it is so very unpleasant! ÊWe recommend setting the amp up to your rhythm volume, and then using the Boost control to jump up to your solo volume (in either gain stage). ÊEither way, let the PlexiTone take you to the stratosphere of High Gain!
