Plexi Drive Deluxe
Based on the classic Wampler Pedal “Plexi-Drive”, the Plexi-Drive Deluxe builds on the foundation of the original and gives you considerably more control to shape your tone. With a 3 band active EQ and additional brightness control, the Plexi-Drive Deluxe takes a huge step forward into the modern era of pedals. Complete with the perfectly voiced pregain booster, you can achieve almost any Plexi tone from virtually any amp.
Since the early 60’s, Marshall Amplifiers® have lead the way in rock tones with its legendary tight overdrive and coveted bass response. Early rock legends such as: Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Cream, and AC/DC helped lead the way in creating some of the most iconic rock tones ever produced and catapulted Marshall® into rock legendary status.
The Plexi-Drive Deluxe is a direct descendent of the Plexi-Drive Standard but with a few upgraded features. Like the original, the Plexi-Drive Deluxe’s unique gain structure can cover everything from Vintage ’68 style Plexi tones to the all out massive rock tones of a JTM-45® cranked to ten, or even eleven.
With the addition of an all-new active 3 band Bass/Mids/Treble EQ stack – you can now have even more tonal control. With the bass boost option, you can emulate the feeling of the low-end thump of a 4×12” cabinet (or two) at the flick of a switch and can allow you to dial in your low end at lower volume gigs or at bedroom volume levels. To compliment this, we also added a bright switch to add high end sparkle – which makes changing from bright to dark guitars (and amps) a breeze. The Plexi-Drive Deluxe also features a one knob, pre-gain boost soft click switch that is voiced like “that ‘valve’ screaming green overdrive with pronounced mids” – to help push your leads into thick creamy overdrive.
The Plexi-Drive Deluxe will fill your M sound void and give you the crunch, response, boost and feeling that your rig begs for. Whether you are playing sold out shows or rocking out by yourself – the Plexi-Drive Deluxe will take your tone and allow you to create your own flavor of rock!
Your search for the perfect versatile M.I.A.B. (Marshall® in a Box) can finally be over.
A Modern Classic
When Brian first designed the Plexi Standard in 2006, the whole world stood up and took notice. Some 10 years later the format was perfected with everything you would expect from Brian Wampler. Perfect tone, perfect response, perfect power.
With a 3 band active EQ stack, bass boost (to give that 4×12″ thump), a bright option that Plexi’s are famous for, a completely independent ‘screamer boost makes the Plexi Deluxe the kind of pedal that anyone who loves that Plexi tone, has to be an essential weapon in their arsenal.
From classic to modern
The Plexi has been the bedrock of Rock music since rock was born… there isn’t one era that didn’t rely on the Plexi to drive the music. It doesn’t matter if you are looking for classic rock, modern country, glassy gritty cleans… the Plexi Deluxe delivers.

Absolutely fantastic pedal. Very responsive to playing dynamics and the guitar’s controls…but honestly this pedal sounds so good that I just want to crank out some heavy rock most of the time. This is my first Wampler pedal but it won’t be my last.
Greg Leake –
Great Pedal. When I turn up to full gain, It sounds so good, I wish I had more! So, I got a 2nd unit! Running them in series should do it. Powerful EQ. It can be set very clean. Also cool. Lots of low end on tap. Not whimpy or thin. Turn it up!!!

Great pedal. My main dirt sound. Really exells with a guitar with PAF style pickups. Can do anything from clean to early Maiden and everything in between. First Wampler pedal I bought in 2015. Never Left my board since.
I have always been a huge rock fan and have been chasing the AC/DC and classic 70s rock tones for a long time. I have wanted a Marshall plexi amp for a long time but have not bought one because of the cost and mainly the incredibly loud volume you need to play it at in order to get that sweet natural breakup. This pedal gives me all that I have wanted. As soon a I plugged it in and played it I was blown away. This thing has the tone of a real Marshall plexi tube amp and has the responsiveness that a tube amp has. You can get nice cleans, crunch and higher gain tones. It’s very simple to use once you understand the layout. Brian gives a nice demo of it in his video. I am running this pedal through a 65 Fender Princeton Reissue. My amp has a 10 inch speaker in it and the pedal makes my amp sound like it is a Marshall Plexi head being run into a 4×12 cabinet. It sounds massive. The craftsmanship and attention to detail are excellent. This pedal is worth the price you pay. I am so thankful that Brian took the time to make this pedal. It has allowed me to have the AC/DC and classic rock tones that I have always wanted.
Thank you so much Brian for all of the hard work and dedication you put into this pedal. This pedal is a masterpiece.
