Cultivated 68' Plexi tone by Kool & Elfring
We have always been a big fan of the Plexi amps and it’s phenomenal three dimensional rich and open sounds. It took us almost 2 years of intensive research to discover the secrets behind the magical tones of this legendary amp. Thanks to some dear friends in the music industry we could compare our versions (and there where many!!!) with some awesome original JMP’s.
Growling smooth like a straight 8 engine...
Beside the original plexi tones the Straight8 offers a second, hotrodded channel: the ultimate Plexi overdrive. The beauty of this channel is that it's got the Plexi-vibe all over it. It's ultra dymamic and even with the gain at 11 it still cleans up nicely.
Beefed up vintage tone & modern features
Like all K&E amps the Straight8 is very is easy to use due to its convenient single-row-chicken head-knob control panel. It takes just one glance to check your settings and you're ready to burn. Everything fits in a sexy, road-ready, convenient 50x25x25cm head. Furthermore it has some modern features and inovations like a foot-switchable ‘true bypass’ effects loop and double SVC ''Seamless Volume Control'' system that lets you to play at high and low wattage and boost your solo’s.
The Straight8 is the ultimate hardrock tool and an oasis of inspiration for new music. We left no stone unturned when designing and building this rock machine, now it’s up to you to write new history...
