    Tech 21 Introduces the Hot-Rod Plexi

    By HC News |

    The Hot-Rod Plexi pedal from Tech 21 is inspired by vintage amps of the same nickname. While those hulking stacks are known to sound best at ear-bleed levels, this pedal can painlessly transform your existing amp without pulling a muscle or mandatory rig cranking. With the Hot-Rod Plexi, you can com- pletely change the personality of a clean amp or use it as an instant mod to a dirty amp.

    Portions of Tech 21’s all-analog SansAmp technology have been incorporated into the Hot-Rod Plexi to generate organic tube amp distortion characteristics. In Stock mode, it’s as if you have the signal path from the input jack to the speaker jack (without the speaker emulation) of a stock ‘68 Plexi. Hot mode engages an extra “12AX7” pre-amp gain stage. With its own level control, Hot can kick in up to 28dB of pre-amp boost --a pretty insane amount of gain.

    Tone cuts the high end without losing mids or getting muddy and Drive adjusts the overall amount of gain and overdrive. Punch is a wide-band mid-range EQ control that gradually changes its bandwidth with the amount of cut or boost, so you can dial in just the right amount of balance. Other features include a high-impedance input, a low-impedance output, and a silent-switching, custom footswitch actuator. Operable with 9V battery (not included) or optional DC power supply (Tech 21 Model #DC2).

    Manufactured in the U.S.A. Tech 21 USA, Inc., 790 Bloomfield Avenue, Clifton, NJ 07012.
