  • Best Distortion Pedal for a Marshall Plexi

    I have a 1987x reissue Marshall and it sounds great without pedals. But I like the idea of having one in the loop anyway. My keeley tubescreamer, which sounds great on other amps, is a tone sucking machine with this Marshall. What do you suggest would work with this setup?

    Visual Sound Jekyll & Hyde! Literally is two pedals in one enclosure. Comes with overdrive + distortion, and complete control over both. I have one, and <3 it.

        There's no such thing as a pedal that truely captures the plexi sound but the ZVex Box of Rock gets in the neighborhood.

            Thanks for your suggestions, (other than the attenuator). I'm definitely going to look into those pedals and pick one of them up. As money is not a factor in my ultimate marshall pedal search, I don't care if it's a ritzy handmade boutique or a made in a sweat shop Chinese.

                  Baja Tech Custom Da Moaf. Big ass tone through a Marshall. I've never liked tube screamers through Marshall's they're for Fender's trying to get Marshall tone.

                      No worries! You're right, but at volume, I'd wake up all of Southern Cal. Not that i care..

                        i don't put them in the fx loop, since it sucks, but I do have a bypass looper that I put them in. Why shouldn't I use pedals?

                          +1 You don't need an od already built in, you need a big ass fuzz to blow the doors off.

                            Then an attenuator would work?

                            Gets you that nice tubey sound, but at a fraction of the volume
