At long last!  My ultimate emulation of the iconic 1968 Superlead plexi.

Metro-Plex MK II

This two channel amp faithfully emulates everything about my '68 Superlead serial # 12380.  The tone, the feel, the note attack, the harmonics.  It's ALL there.

If you're obsessed with plexi tone and everything else has left you unsatisfied, this is the amp that will quench your thirst.  From Marshall reissues to boutique offerings, nothing else captures the essence of my vintage plexi like this Metro-Plex.

 
Classic plexi style and cllass.



12380 and 12301 channels.
Blend normal and treble gains in the 12380 channel, just like you would on any vintage plexi.  With switchable "bright cap" options, you can call up any classic tone at will, including Superbass (no bright cap).

12301 is fixed with 5,000pF bright cap and made to rip.  Dime it and unleash ferocious plexi aggression.




Each channel features an outstanding master volume

 

Classic tone controls.  Tweak your tone with the iconic plexi tone stack.

 

The pure plexi class continues on the rear.

 

 Footswitch between channels and patch in your favorite FX.

 

Accommodate virtually any speaker arrangement.  Set bias without removing the chassis.

Select 50 watts or 100 watts of output power.

 

 These amps are limited.  We hand build each one right here in Michigan. 

Our head cabinets are made in house.  As are our control panels and logos.

And here's me modding 12380 to 12301 specs to analyze and recreate.
