NU-X Plexi Crunch

By: on 5 January 2024
What a Pedal!! Imagine taking an old Marshall Super Lead Plexi, and putting it into a stomp box. This has become my fave pedal. I've been trying to find a successor to my old Boss MD2, and I've finally found the winner. As always, the service from Artist has been above and beyond!

An amazing pedal for hot rodded Plexi/JCM 800 soun

By: on 13 April 2022
Was interested in trying out some analogue marshall in a box pedals as I was curious how they would stack up against modellers. Saw some videos on this one and thought I would give it a go. Thoroughly impressed. Have run the pedal in to a cab loader, in to the power amp in of a boss katana, and also in front of the boss katana. Sounds amazing in all scenarios. Can stack other overdrive in to it too. I put the Nux Horseman in to it for a boosted lead tone. In terms of gain though you have more than enough. with the preamp right down it may be a little too much for ACDC style rhythm. I wouldnt say this is a traditional plexi sound. Maybe if you turn the tone right down to try and curb some of the gain. But with preamp right down you go straight in to jcm800 and hard rock territory as well as leads. Responds to rolling off volume and dynamics well. Dont get this for any clean/verge of breakup tone though. Its not what its for. Can't recommend it enough though. The pedal is so cheap too. Just buy it.

Still 4 stars as price in mind. I saw some reviews saying the top can look old soon. These comments must come from people not using it long. It has a peel-off plastic top (same as many things). The actual decorative top is OK and frankly who cares at the price. Nonetheless what does matter is that the adjustable pots have plastic poles. Unlike the Joyo pedals I own, I don't see these standing any rigours on the road without planning. They feel much more like the cheaper B make than the tank Esque B make/brand if you get the drift. The actual switch feels / sounds like a cheap baked bean tin going off but has lasted and no problem playing anywhere so far (surprisingly OK). Also no noise above what else is happening at any real-world even practice level with friends involved. All in all build quality can't be overlooked - great basic case but top components need to be acknowledged as the weak points for durability.

Aimed More At Gain But ..........

By: on 30 August 2021
If you go by the video on the Artist's site page for this (probably this one LOL) you get exactly that. Do watch it as this pedal wants to go to higher gain stages. At this price, it's hard to find any real crunch at the super affordable end of the market. Clean / harder gains get done well but the middle bit is the hardest at any price (why valve amps still sell). Playing around with the red Joyo wah/vol and their Monterey Vibe from here and my fuzz there is loads of the fun you would expect (do take 10 to understand buffered /true bypass doing that as fuzz pedals need to be understood in my experience). Plenty of other stuff uses Plexi too of course but if it can do that you are in the ballpark of where Plexi is I think. Having said all that single-coil neck on my strat with the guitar vol back and preamp on the pedal at 0 the pedal can be tamed well enough. Do your research if not after real gain but I found with lighter picking I can get some crunch territory as well as the gain this pedal excels at and all very useable in any situation I would think. I can only go by my ears. Real solid offering, IMO!

A Lotta Distortion

By: on 13 April 2021
This pedal looks great & gets some interesting tones, but holy moly does it have a lot of gain! The Preamp control starts with immense saturation & works its way up from there! Not a gradual build up at all. The Master control is what to use if you you want a more controllable sound, just be mindful of the Preamp control - cause it generates a lot of filth pretty much immediately. The Tone control is odd as well, it's more like a voice/contour control, making it kinda weird to dial in good sound. The Presence control behaves like the Tone control should... All in all I found this pedal ok. The Preamp control is far too gainy too quickly for my tastes.

This pedal and others in the Nux reissue series are fantastic for the price. I have bought many other pedals that mimic the plexi crunch, and this one is the best and the least costly. I also bought the reissue series distortion, chorus, delay and overdrive, and they are great too. Thanks Artist Guitars for including this series in your pedal offerings.
