Fulltone PlimSoul

The Fulltone Plimsoul Overdrive And Distortion Pedal features a unique clipping technology that allows it to act like an overdrive pedal and a distortion pedal so you've effectively got two pedals in one!

For many, many years you've basically had 2 choices for your Overdrive/Distortion pedals: You could either get "Soft-clipped" Bluesy, slightly compressed, (Toob Screemer, FD2, etc.) type Overdrive pedals... or you could get "Hard-Clipped" (OCD, Distortion+, Boss DS-1, etc.) type Distortion pedals.

What if there was a pedal that offered both? There is now... the Fulltone PlimSoul with it's patented (US Patent #8471136) and completely unique dual stage clipping circuit which VERY accurately replicates not only the sound, but the feel of a tube amp with all of its subtleties and complexities.

PlimSoul has those Softer Bluesy, 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 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.

Touch sensitive? Doesn't get any better. Clean up with the guitar's volume control? More than any, yes, even more than the OCD. Speaking of OCD, people ask "What's the comparison?" Easy answer: OCD has an honest flat EQ, won't change your amp's tone. PlimSoul has a gorgeous enhanced Midrange and Lower midrange... excellent to transform a combo into a Marshall-like lead machine, not so necessary if you already have a Marshall-like amp.

Good with Humbuckers as well as Single coils? Yep.

Does it play nice with other pedals? Yes, it has an Ideal 500K Input Impedance, ideal super low 10K output impedance.

Can I blend the 2 types of Distortion? Yes, and you can have ONLY Soft clipped or ONLY Hard Clipped :)

In a Nutshell? Extremely good Sustain/Feedback qualities, just the right amount of Mids, bottom, Great touch sensitivity, dynamics, and all those in-between shades available when you know how to use your guitar's volume control. Pedal builders are already starting to take notice and "getting inspired" by the PlimSoul's unique design, which combines independently adjustable soft and hard clipping and successfully emulates the "sag" and other behaviours associated with a tube amp's output section and tube rectifier. With the OCD Fulltone gooped the PCB for 5 years or so to slow them down, but you're now seeing a handful of "OCD inspired" pedals being sold under various names. Now there are also Photoshop renderings popping up from other makers claiming to be developing "emulates output tube distortion" pedals ala Plimsoul. Fulltone didn't bother gooping the PlimSoul, but they are well into the Patent process.

The main features of the Fulltone Plimsoul Overdrive And Distortion Pedal include:

  • Both soft-clipping and hard-clipping overdrives in one pedal
  • LED glows brighter or dimmer depending on how hard you push it
  • Optimised for humbuckers, works great with single-coils too!
  • Both channels can be used independently or blended for ultimate flexibility
