Lo strike

I used to own the Carl Martin Plexi Tone, sold it away as I prefer a Marshall amp drive to pedal emulation. This Lo-gain version was struck off my wish list because I managed to grab a JHS Morning Glory which offers a polite break-up type Marshall tone (Bluesbreaker if you will) with enough creamy goodness to prevent it from treading the Tube Screamer way. However, a recent re-think made me try this Lo-gain version. The aforementioned voicing aside, cranking this up (Level) while keeping the Gain pretty low (25% or lesser) turned it into a potent boost. So what appealed (to me) really, was the saturation coupled with low gain, lower than I usually use.
