It goes to 11 (Lovepedal Purple Plexi 800)

I just finished watching one of my favourite movies of all time and I thought I’d show off a build I did for 11/11/11. It’s a Lovepedal Purple Plexi 800 clone. The pedal is a typical Marshall in a Box. Being 386 based I thought this pedal would be fairly buzzy but I was suprised at the tones this pedal is capable of. Here’s a pic of the guts. I didn’t add in a battery clip as with the way the pedal is laid out there isn’t enough room for a 9V. Also since my pedals are always on a pedalboard with a dedicated PSU I felt it wasn’t really needed.

As you can see it’s not the most complicated build out there. While it won’t make your 5 watt fender combo sound like a marshall stack it does an alright job. I made the artwork of sir Nigel in GIMP, which is a fantastic piece of open source software I highly reccomend. I finished the build off with some silver Marshall-style knobs and a recklessly bright white LED. It’s been on my board for a while, so I think it’s a keeper. Over the break I’ll post some more builds between hockey games (Go Canada go!)
