First there was the Plexi-Drive. Then there was the Plexi-Drive Deluxe. Now Wampler pedals bring you the all new Plexi-Drive Mini. Brian has managed to cram an improved version of the original Plexi-Drive circuit into a miniature housing and has added a couple of new features. We worked with some leading pedal demo artists to tweak this circuit and we are sure you are going to love it.
We have added our special Bass Boost switch which when activated gives Brian’s interpretation of the difference a 4x12 speaker cab will make vs a 2x12. Imagine that Plexi stack sound with more thumping bass tone and a lovely warm rounded bottom end. This gives you a huge amount of power in a tiny package. There is also an all new Mid Boost circuit that hasn’t featured on any of our previous Plexi style pedals. For this, Brian has created a warm throaty tube-like boost by tweaking several gain stages of the circuit at once. Many love to run their 'Klone' type pedals into the Plexi-Drive for added midrange warmth as well as a bit of a gain boost. Brian implemented gain stage and EQ changes within the circuit to approximate a similar response and the result is astounding.
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. Like the original, the Plexi-Drive Mini’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…This is the mini pedal for classic rock and metal fans - have no doubt!
To this day, the original Plexi-Drive is still one Brian’s favorite pedals and never left his personal pedal board. For a man who is said to be never satisfied with his tone, the Plexi-Drive has stayed with him throughout and is still inspiring him gig after gig. The new Plexi Drive Mini, with its smaller board footprint, has become Brian’s Plexi pedal of choice. The Plexi-Drive Mini will fill your “British Distortion Voiced Amp” 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 Mini will take your tone and allow you to create your own flavor of rock!
Gain: This controls the total amount of overdrive that is heard. The more you turn it clockwise, the more distorted the sound will become.
Volume: Controls the total output volume of the pedal.
Tone: Adjust the mix of Bass (Anticlockwise) or Treble (Clockwise) that is output from the pedal.
Bass Boost Toggle: This toggle switch allows you to emulate the feeling of the low-end thump of a 4×12” cabinet (or two) at the flick of a switch. The bass boost will allow you to dial in your low end at lower volume gigs or at bedroom volume levels.
Mids Boost Toggle: This toggle switch allows you to engage a multi gain stage boost that emulates a warm treble and gain boosting circuit going into the Plexi-Drive.
Power: This pedal was designed around the usage of a 9V or 18V DC power source, and is intended to sound its best at 9V. To avoid damage to the pedal, do not exceed 18V DC, do not use center pin positive adapters, and do not use AC power. Using an incorrect power adapter can lead to damage and will void the warranty on the pedal.

Why was my package refused?
There are a number of reasons your package could be refused by us, including:
Nice full bodied overdrive/distortion without going into metal territory. Provides a solid classic "rock" sound much like that of Marshall based tones, Well pleased - especially from a mini pedal.
This is one amazing pedal with many variations is extremely usable for any pedal board
This thing sounds so authentic. Huge British amp tones. Really happy with it.
Same harmonic content as in tube pedals. Great guitar volume rolloff cleanup.
Great sounding pedal
