Radial Engineering Tonebone Plexitube 12AX7 Tube Distortion Pedal - Discontinued
Sorry, the Radial Engineering Tonebone Plexitube 12AX7 Tube Distortion Pedal is discontinued. This page up for reference only. Look around or give us a call at (866) 256-5725 to speak with us about similar products.
The Plexitube™ is a two channel tube distortion that combines the natural warmth and harmonic generation of a 12AX7 tube with the control and saturation of our unique multi-stage solid-state drive circuit. Combine this amazing front-end with our unique passive-interactive tone controls and the Plexitube is able to deliver four generations of over-the-top Marshall tones from a single pedal.
Designed to enhance on-stage functionality, the Plexitube features two distinct distortion channels for on-the-fly transitioning between rhythm and lead settings. Channel-1 has been optimized for rhythm with huge chunky rhythm tones and scooped out mids for a thunderous wall-of-sound and complete world domination. Channel-2 is optimized to produce razor-sharp cut for solos and sustaining mids that are so smooth, they can make a grown man cry. This is augmented with individual voicing and contour controls for each channel that let you dial in the optimal tone to suit your guitar and playing style.
When the Plexitube is switched off, true-bypass connectivity ensures the natural tone of your guitar goes directly to your amp without obstruction or a tone robbing load. And when activated, photocell switching assures smooth pop-free actuation even when used with high gain amps. There's even an effects loop that can automatically turn your delay on when you switch channels for leads. No tap dancing required!
The Radial Tonebone Plexitube takes metal guitar one step beyond anything you have experienced so far. God Save the Queen!
