    Yes have done (Tumnus) that also adds a lot of bottom but it's a great pedal

    How you getting on with Pleximan now that you know it better.........I got a THD attenuator and can crank it more now and it is really impressing me through a 2x12

    More and more impressed the more time I spend with it. 5w is surprisingly loud, I've found a nice  balance between the gain and hot rod channels now too. All the switches give a lot of options to tweak which is very useful. Not tried it with the band yet but looking forward to it

    I'm seriously looking at a pleximan ... sounds like a killer amp, and I'm torn between this and a Sheriff 44 head. Do any of you folks have experience changing out the power glass? Are the bias points easy to access, or do you need to take the chassis out of the headshell and risk life 'n limb messing around the innards of these things?

    no idea on any of the above Chester, but the more time i spend with this amp the better it gets.
    The solo boost means you don't need to use the loop which is ace if you like old school delay before drive

    i tried my Pleximan for the first time with the band last night, and I was very impressed. Most of the stuff we play suits a crunch and a thicker sound that my 800 nails with a TS type boost so i wasnt sure how the Pleximan would handle the heavier stuff. I was playing Alice In Chains on it in drop C# with no pedals and it sounded ace :)
    It's a very different volume taper to a Marshall, i had it in 50w mode with the volume on 5, which on an 800 would have been peeling the paint off the walls. Which is a good thing as the volume goes up gradually from home levels to band volume rather than having a big jump.
    Amazing to have a 3 channel amp, with solo boost in such a small package, the only thing i would change is to have a gain on the clean channel as it stays very clean even at proper volume (which i know some people love), i prefer a bit of hair on the clean personally.
    I had it through the Veteran 30 in an oversized Mesa 1x12 cab, it was punchy and crystal clear.
    I A/B'd it with my 800 last week pretty loud and they have a very different core tone, the 800 is much squishier and simple sounding (if that makes sense), whereas the Pleximan is much more detailed and articulate. I've never owned a Plexi so i don;t know if this is typical of that amp type, but from clips i've heard it makes sense. The EQ is totally different too, you can run this with the mids and treble high at volume and it stays thick, whereas an 800 will take your head off if the treble is over 5 at band volume.

    Amazing amp for the money.

    Yes.......totally agree.......it is a fantastic amp for that job
    I like the clean staying clean (can always hit it with a Klon type for a bit of hair)
    The Hot Rod gives it real thump when you need it
    I am very impressed .......easily top boutique quality........that's why Guitarist rated it so highly

    I’ve often thought about asking Marco to build me a pleximan combo, the only thing that’s stopped me is my Budda, which I think nails the mid/high gain sounds better.

    ok i solved the clean being too clean, i tried it with the Dense switch in and EQ brighter and there you go, the clean channel has a hint of hair on it with single coils and a bit more with HBs, but it stays dynamic so when you pick light it's clean and when you give it some it breaks up a bit - perfect. It's like Mr Brunetti thought about exactly that :)
