The Plumes is a low to medium gain overdrive based on the trusty lime-green overdrive that has been an industry staple since its inception. A unique approach to a classic tube-like overdrive circuit, this pedal features 3 different clipping options and reimagined tone control to give you more sculpting options. This pedal is suitable for any player looking for a classic tube-like overdrive sound.

Unique Approach to a Classic Tube-Like Overdrive Circuit
This pedal provides a unique approach to a classic circuity, offering more headroom, lower noise, and far better signal integrity. This is the kind of overdrive that works in conjunction with a good valve amp to create the warm saturation people like to call "transparent". While this circuit has been the foundation of countless other overdrives available today, the Plumes has a few twists and turns to make it unique enough to stand out.

3 Different Clipping Options: Symmetrical LED, Asymmetrical Silicon, and No Diode OpAmp Drive
Mode 1 is symmetrical clipping utilizing a pair of light emitting diodes. This is the crunchiest setting the Plumes has to offer. Mode 2 is clean boost mode - perfect for pushing your clean tone out in front or driving the preamp of an already overdriven amp into tasteful breakup territory. Mode 3 is an asymmetrical silicon diode arrangement similar to the stock screamer but with more output and clean clarity; the tone some people describe as "transparent".

Reimagined Tone Control
The reimagined tone control allows you to sculpt low end, clear top end, and get a focused midrange.

Adds grit and livens tone for bass


Great effect for bass. Provides a nice drive that adds grit and iivens up your tone, regardless of whether you use flatwounds or roundwounds.



great for the money


this thing is awesome. very versatile for what it is. stacks well with other pedals



this has replaced my tube screamer


I absolutely love this overdrive pedal. This has become of my go to pedals to drive my amp. I haven't found and amp that doesn't work well with this pedal.



Great Tube Screamer


Great Sounding Mid-High Gain Overdrive Gives you that tube screamer sound a lot of people are looking for, and gives a three way toggle switch for different clipping options. Has a slight harshness/brightness to the tone that I can't seem to quite figure out, but works great if that's the sound you are looking for!



This is the overdrive you're looking for.


I was originally looking to buy a TS9, but Sidney Tran at Sam Ash Tampa recommended this. As soon as I got it home I was sold. A very diverse pedal with the perfect mid-range boost I was looking for. This is the best kept secret on the market.



Ton of output!


The best thing about this pedal is that it has a ton of output, so you can drive a clean amp to breakup, and it sounds phenomenal, with low noise. This now has a permanent place on my pedalboard.



I Would buy again


Versatile overdrive pedal with three options based on the switch. The pedal does not need much volume to crank out powerful overdrive tones



Great to play clean and powerful!


If you need a pedal to play clean and, at the same time, powerful, this is the one you need! I love it!!



Not sure


Tried it on my Bass rig, not as good as I expected but I'm keeping it for my guitar to add a little edge.
