Art Thompson of Guitar Player Magazine 7/20/2010: "I haven’t heard anything that sounds and feels so much like an amp. . .No harshness whatsoever, and I love the sustain and tone with the Stage 2 knob cranked”
7/10/2010 Sonny Landreth, after Canadian gig with the PlimSoul using rented backline Twin: "man, the pedal sounds & feels great! I know that Twin never sounded so stellar...can't wait to use it with my"fly rig."
Sony Landreth #0003 (7/7/2010) "wow, sounds GREAT Mike...man, this may be your Masterpiece."
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 etc etc etc etc etc) type Distortion pedals.
What if there was a pedal that offered both? Fulltone PlimSoulPlimSoul 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 :)
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.

The PlimSoul is a thick, gainy, but vintage voiced OD-- great in front of a Fender style clean amp. You can get any type of tasty overdrive sound, from rhythm all the way to thick, compressed lead sounds. A little bit noisy, but what OD pedals aren't? Having the extra gain stage is awesome too. Highly recommended if you're looking for a slightly different OD sound than what most people are rocking today.
