Fulltone Custom Shop PlimSoul mkII Overdrive/Distortion Pedal

The mighty PlimSoul returns!

...and the MkII is better than ever, with:

Clipping = Distortion, and for many years we’ve only been offered two clipping choices: Soft-Clipped or Hard-Clipped.

Soft-Clipped pedals include Tube Screamers, Fulldrive2, OD-1, Zendrive, etc, which get their distortion by using diodes placed in the feedback loop of their Opamp. This type of clipping is generally favored by the folks wanting a cleaner, more compressed, low-to-medium gained Overdrive sound. The other choice we have are Hard-Clipped pedals like the RAT, Distortion+, Boss DS-1, etc. These pedals create distortion using diodes tied to ground or, unique to the Fulltone OCDv2, Mosfets that are tied to the half-way point between 9volt and ground (Vref) offering a more natural sounding distortion, one that emulates the SAG (feel) of an amp’s tube rectifier..

The original PlimSoul is the only pedal to offer both Soft & Hard clipping with separate control over each. Fulltone designed the PlimSoul’s unique, independent dual-stage clipping circuit to replicate not only the sound, but the feel of a tube amp with its subtleties and complexities.

The original PlimSoul was a great first step, but the PlimSoul mkII offers significant improvements over it.

The Fulltone PlimSoul mkII might be the most versatile Overdrive/Distortion ever made. They are Hand-Built in the U.S.A. using top-notch, full size components, many of our components are designed by and made exclusively for Fulltone.


Features:

• Input Impedance increased from 500k to 700K+ ohms for even better interaction with guitar’s Volume knob.
• Top-Mounted Jacks and external power port.
• Soft-Clipping (Stage 1) and Hard-Clipping (Stage 2) are now truly-independent, allowing for aggressive, punchy gain with the Hard-Clipping knob turned up even while the Soft-Clipping knob is turned down!
• Hard clipping now uses two Germanium Diodes tied to Vref, instead of LEDs...it’s a night-and-day improvement.
• Loss-less Bass switch, located just before the Hard-Clipping in the circuit, giving the ability for tight, percussive distortion that’s not muddy. You will find your place in the mix immediately, and sound great doing it!
• Treble control now offers plenty of brightness when turned up.
• The Soft-Clipping stage is extremely Asymmetrical, the Hard-Clipping stage is Symmetrical, dial-in infinite combinations of the two.
