metroplex low gain mod "retroplex"

Post by cmill24 » Sun Sep 27, 2015 12:00 am

Anyone know exactly what this mod does compared to the stock version? I bought the low gain modded version from Cliff at DAG. no 048. on his advice based on what type of music I play. He calls it the Retroplex. had not heard the stock metroplex other than the awesome videos on youtube and DAG website of the stock metroplex. I love my low gain modded one (at least the 1 day so far that I've had it lol) and am getting awesome zepellin and ac/dc tones out of it. Just was trying to figure out what this mod turns the stock one into, and ditto on the mod channel etc. and if there is a setting that puts it close to the stock versions tones as well. Maybe George can chime in on this one. thanks for any info!!

People were buying the MP and sending it back for less gain and better clean tones. So I worked up a low gain version and based the PLEXI mode on my 45/100. MOD mode was the '68 Superlead tone, but tweaked to clean up better with th guitar volume.
Cliff has been calling this version the Retroplex, but I think th Metro-Plex should do all the great plexi tones. I'm woking to incorporate each voicing into the amp.
