The Wampler Plextortion takes a medium-to-high gain approach to getting that classic "roar" people associate with famous British amps ofthe late '70s and early '80s.

The Wampler Plextortion is a distortion pedal that was originally designed to emulate a “JCM800” with Celestion Greenbacks (If you think of those great tones from Back in Black era AC/DC, all the way through to (post DLR) Van Halen, Dokken, Ratt, Guns'N'Roses and all those amazing 80's rock “cranked Marshall” tones). It has a very brown sounding distortion, in a way, quite similar to the Wampler Pinnacle pedal.

The Wampler Plextortion differs from the Pinnacle in that it is a tighter distortion, more like pre amp tube distortion where the pinnacle is a bit looser, more like power tube distortion. This difference, although hardly noticeable to your average person, is hugely important when looking for “that” sound, Never before has a pedal given that high gain tone that would appear to be pre-amp driven and power-amp driven.


  • Hand made in the U.S.A.
  • High grade film capacitors and resistors picked for their superior sound and response
