Looks like Fulltone is coming out with a new overdrive / distortion pedal called the PlimSoul. The PlimSoul is scheduled to be released to the masses on June 1, 2010 to selected dealers. It will have the retail price of $199.
The PlimSoul will be combining the soft and hard clipping distortion. Soft clipped distortion is like a Tubescreamer, and a hard clipped distortion is like a Fulltone OCD. You can select either type or blend the two. He’s claiming this is the dirtiest pedal he makes, sounds very interesting.
Here is a partial description by Fulltone:
PlimSoul has those Softer Bluesey, 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 firey 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.
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.
How dirty does it get? VERY dirty, the dirtiest pedal I make…but gets very clean as well.
Can I blend the 2 types of Distortion? Yes, and you can have ONLY Soft clipped or ONLY Hard Clipped 🙂
