I picked up a Wampler Plextortion in trade for my Carl Martin Plexitone single today. The latter was a great pedal, no doubt about it, and through my Hot Rod Deluxe it just screamed! But it's main purpose is my back up pedalboard rig, and through my EHX 44 Magnum it just lost all its character. Plus I couldn't handle the single tone knob on the Plexitone, I was constantly adjusting it, it was either too low or too high. Finally, the gain knob went from mid to high gain by Noon, and then it after 2pm it didn't do much else. I have 3 other Dist/OD pedals on my board (Tight Metal, Musket, Riot clone) and they all sound great with the Magnum. So it had to go. I haven't had a chance to play this yet, but the 3 EQ, Vintage/Modern switch and apparently more active Gain knob has me in high hopes!
