For many, many years you've basically had 2 choices for your overdrive and distortion pedals. You could either get "Soft-clipped" Bluesy, slightly compressed-type overdrive pedals, or you could get "Hard-Clipped" type distortion pedals.
Now, the Fulltone PlimSoul guitar effects pedal offers both distortion and overdrive for a great price.
The Fulltone PlimSoul guitar pedal has those softer, bluesey, compressed capabilities but also has a second stage that you can roll in with the turn of a little dial to add that firmer, crunchier, British output tube-style Distortion. What's more is you not only hear and feel it-you can see the Fulltone pedal reacting to your every mood via a fiery LED that glows brighter and dimmer depending on how distorted it is and how hard you're hitting it.
It's touch sensitive, cleans up with the guitar's volume control, sounds superb with either humbuckers or single coils. And with a 500kOhm input impedance and ideal super low 10K output impedance, the Fulltone PlimSoul plays nice with other effects pedals. It goes from very clean to very dirty, giving your tone a vast range of tonal control to customize to your liking.
The Fulltone overdrive/distortion pedal can blend both soft clip/hard clip distortion types, or isolate one or the other. The sound possibilities are truly endless.
This Fulltone guitar pedal offers extremely good sustain/feedback qualities, just the right amount of mids and bottom, great touch sensitivity, dynamics, and all those in-between shades available created using your guitar's volume control.
Bluesy soft-clip and nasty hard-clip tube-style distortion, all in one effect pedal for a great price.
