Rocktron has introduced a new rack unit, the ValveSonic Plexi, the first in the ValveSonic series of valve guitar pre-amps. Developed in conjunction with LA Custom, it is claimed to capture the vintage tones of the iconic 1960s ‘plexi’ amplifiers.
The ValveSonic’s 1-2 switch allows players to quickly toggle between the ‘modern’ type of input used on ‘British style’ amps, and a fatter, ‘classic’ type of input. The Bright control allows five different variations, and the gain and boost controls allow users replicate the ’80s and ’90s British amp tones. When combining the use of the unique AFTERBURNER switch, the ValveSonic allows the player to fine tune his/her exact tone.
