Hot off the NAMM 2016 plate, Gallien Kruger’s PLEX seems to be one of the most interesting and innovative pedals dedicated for bass. It’s pretty big and it’s pretty heavy, but it does offer a lot under the hood. The preamp is just a part of the story, as it also has a compressor, boost, chromatic tuner and some clever voicing features. For instance the contour filter voicing is ported from the classic GK 800RB.
Top that off with DI, headphones output, AUX input and USB connectivity for MIDI control, direct recording or re-amp capability. Again, it looks very interesting and is definitely high on our review wish list for 2016.
