Presenting the all new PlexiRanger Overdrive and Boost Pedal from Carl Martin.

When we look back to the glory days of rock guitar (mid 60's to mid 70's), some of the most popular amplifier set-ups were a combination of British Marshalls and Vox's.....often with multi-speaker cabinets. Players like Tony Iommi, Ritchie Blackmore, Brian May etc, carved their signature sounds on stage and in the studio with these rigs, and in order to deal with the over-powering bottom end, they made use of 'The Treble Booster'.

Treble Boosters add top end or higher frequencies to the guitar tone, and depending on how the amp is set up, some much desired overdrive. As much as companies like Dallas (Rangemaster) and Hornby Skewes (Treble Booster) were solving a bottom-end problem, they had also created a new sound pallette!

The team at Carl Martin decided it was time to re-introduce this sound with the new PlexiRanger pedal. And leave it to them to add a gain channel along with the boost channel for a one-of -a-kind dual pedal.

The Pre-Gain Boost side of the PlexiRanger consists of two boost controls and two low-cut settings. The Boost knob gives you up to +15dB of crystal clean volume boost. The Frequency Boost has two controls, Frequency and Range. there is also a 3-way switch which engages a slight low-cut (1), Heavy low-cut (2), or No low-cut (0).

The Boost switch engages the Boost channel and is indicated by a Green LED. It works independently and can be used as a variable treble boost on its own.

The Other side of the PlexiRanger is a gain channel with an obvious influence.... The Gain Knob adjusts the amount of overdrive, from a light crunch to a full-on overdrive, but as overdrive pedals go it is not extreme, acting more like a crunch pedal than an overdrive. The Plexi footswitch engages the drive side, and is indicated by a Red LED.

The beauty of the PlexiRanger is that the two channels can either be used independently, or combined. Certainly a big focus of the pedal is to have the Boost and Frequency Boost hit the hot preamp of the Plexi really hard, resulting in a tremendous amount of gain and almost violin-like sustain. This is possible with the PlexiRanger even at lower gain settings.

With all the control on the Boost Side, the PlexiRanger may just be the most versatile Boost/Gain pedal on the market, not only allowing you to replicate some of the most iconic guitar tones, but create a whole new range of tones that will cut through any mix either on stage or in the studio.
