Best Pedal to Replicate the Marshall Plexi Tone
In 1965, Marshall introduced the famous 1959 Super Lead cabinet amplifier known today as their Plexi. Designed by Ken Bran and Dudley Craven after The Who’s guitarist Pete Townshend asked Marshall for a 100 watt amplifier. Since its introduction, the Marshall Plexi amplifiers have helped create amazing tones from artists the likes of: Angus Young, Eddie Van Halen, Peter Townshend, Jimmy Paige, Slash, Billy Gibbons and Jimi Hendrix.
