Tsakalis AudioWorks Room #40
Heavily inspired by the tone and feel of legendary Marshall™ amps – the non master volume series PLEXI™ Super Lead (1959/1987) & Super Bass (1992) and the master volume series JMP™ & JCM800™ (2203/2204), this is an “amp in a box” that you really have to hear! Staying as true and loyal to the original sound of these magnificent, legendary amps, Tsakalis uses JFET technology to emulate THAT tone in what is surely one of the best Marshall™ inspired pedals out there!
More from Tsakalis: “We emphasized on emulating the compression and sag coming from the power amp section, when these amps are pushed to the edge, while at the same time giving access to two famous mods, mod #39 (PLEXI™) and mod #34 (JMP™ & JCM800™). Of course the manifestation of our love for the late great Eddie Van Halen, who created the so called “brown sound” using an ohmite variac (variable transformer used to lower or raise the voltage going into the amplifier), could not be absent from this endeavor.
Finally, we incorporated the Presence control to make the sound adjustable to any circumstance, regardless of whether you are plugged into the front of an amp that may or may not have a bright cap or even straight to a power amp.”
