    OK I`ve listened to the clips on Youtube and on Brians website. Basically these are all Marshall derivative sounding pedals. But how do they overlap sound/tonewise? Would some people who have them chime in please!:RoCkIn

    plextortion - more balls
    pinnacle - more gain and "sizzle" more highs.

    Thanks for the replies. Can anyone reference these pedals to say a Lovekraft Chupacabra or Cmatmods Brownie pedal? Again thanks in advance.

    I have Brownie, Chupa and Pinnacle 2.
    Brownie and Pinnacle sound quite in the same league.
    Chupa however is different, more compressed, liquid, a lot of gain.
    This is what I hear.

    The plexi drive sounds like it has a little more bottom end and is more dynamic than the super plex. The super plex sounds a bit thin and grainy to my ear. In my opinion the pinnacle is the most versatile of the 3. You can get both the marshall and vox sounds out of the pinnacle. I just need to decide if the pinnacle is a better choice over the lovepedal provalve or eternity e6.
