You can add in an extra level of gain using the footswitchable gain boost feature to create extra distortion in your sound.

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreScarborough, Ontario
I owned a real 50 watt late 60's PLEXI. I bought it in 71 and kept it for years. I had to sell it for money to get back to Canada after living in Brit for years. The difference in the sound of that amp and this is insignificant. One thing about a Plexi it was cool in the 60's and still is. It is not going to go out of date and disappear in favour of next years and improved whatever. LOL A bullet proof sound!!!
