Wow...ok. So, I was running into a problem with my band. We play MOSTLY standard rock stuff, but we had been adding more and more heavier sorta tunes (Velvet Revolver, Muse...etc) and My current setup wasn't getting heavy enough. I then built a JCM800 with mods to get me that heavier gain needed. It really started to sound great, but I had two amps. I tried an amp switcher, and THAT failed miserably. So I was back to square one. So I took a chance with the plexitone. I had heard good things, and I liked that it wasn't in that boutique pedal world which tends to voice pedals for bedroom players. Well I'm rather impressed. If anyone has spent anytime with actually cranking Marshall circuits, you'll instantly realize the near perfect voicing this pedal has. From what I'm hearing it sounds like most if not all the big negatives tend to sprout from what people fantasize what a modded plexi sounds like, and not what an actual plexi sounds like. There is so much high end and upper mid harmonic mess in a real plexi, and thats where the magic is. Somehow, this pedal recreated that. Its not intended to smooth everything out to mush. Alone, in a room, it can sorta sound a bit harsh, but that same sound in a band context is wonderful. That same sound becomes the crackle and spark that a rock band needs. EDIT: after a few days of learning the pedal: Plexitone Highgain 2 Plextione Highgain 2 Wet Now, with all that said. The ONE voicing issue may be that it seems to have a bit too much low end. Tends to get a bit boomy. Not really that big of an issue. I'd probably just EQ that out a bit at the board live.
