Wampler Plexi-Drive Mini
Mini-sized version of the Plexidrive.
First there was the Plexi-Drive. Then there was the Plexi-Drive Deluxe. Now Wampler pedals bring you the all new Plexi-Drive Mini. Brian has managed to cram an improved version of the original Plexi-Drive circuit into a miniature housing and has added a couple of new features. We worked with some leading pedal demo artists to tweak this circuit and we are sure you are going to love it.
We have added our special Bass Boost switch which when activated gives Brian’s interpretation of the difference a 4×12 speaker cab will make vs a 2×12. Imagine that Plexi stack sound with more thumping bass tone and a lovely warm rounded bottom end. This gives you a huge amount of power in a tiny package. There is also an all new Mid Boost circuit that hasn’t featured on any of our previous Plexi style pedals. For this, Brian has created a warm throaty tube-like boost by tweaking several gain stages of the circuit at once. Many love to run their ‘Klone’ type pedals into the Plexi-Drive for added midrange warmth as well as a bit of a gain boost. Brian implemented gain stage and EQ changes within the circuit to approximate a similar response and the result is astounding.
Since the early 60’s, Marshall Amplifiers® have lead the way in rock tones with its legendary tight overdrive and coveted bass response. Early rock legends such as: Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Cream, and AC/DC helped lead the way in creating some of the most iconic rock tones ever produced and catapulted Marshall® into rock legendary status. Like the original, the Plexi-Drive Mini’s unique gain structure can cover everything from Vintage ’68 style Plexi tones to the all-out massive rock tones of a JTM-45® cranked to ten, or even eleven…This is the mini pedal for classic rock and metal fans – have no doubt!
To this day, the original Plexi-Drive is still one Brian’s favorite pedals and never left his personal pedal board. For a man who is said to be never satisfied with his tone, the Plexi-Drive has stayed with him throughout and is still inspiring him gig after gig. The new Plexi Drive Mini, with its smaller board footprint, has become Brian’s Plexi pedal of choice. The Plexi-Drive Mini will fill your “British Distortion Voiced Amp” void and give you the crunch, response, boost and feeling that your rig begs for. Whether you are playing sold out shows or rocking out by yourself – the Plexi-Drive Mini will take your tone and allow you to create your own flavor of rock!
