    Should be fine.....great distortion on a clean channel. Certainly not an overdrive.

    I bought one a while ago but ended up returning it I just did not care for it I think the Tonebone Hot Brittish is a better pedal.

    If you care for the overwhelming British voicing and the relutance to do slight breakup. It does rock, in its way

    I uploaded a demo of the Plexitone.

    It's in spanish (I'm sorry), but you can get the idea.
    I used to have a SR Blackface, and it sounds OK with the Plexitone, but you'll take the max out of it with a british voiced amp, or a 50's tweed style, like a 59'Bassman.

    I hope it helps.
