An Iconic Rock Tone For the Modern Player

Plexi is the legendary nickname for the range of amplifiers produced in the mid 1960s, delivering a classic rock tone that has been popular ever since. The Plexi Pro 18/20 1x12 Combo Amplifier recreates this iconic tone by incorporating a full host of high quality components and circuitry. Whether you are in a rock band, or simply want to achieve that definitive plexi sound of the sixties, the Cornell range of Plexi amplifiers is the perfect choice for any guitarist.

A Unique Construction

Although the Cornell Plexi Pro 18/20 combo Amplifier takes its inspiration from these original Plexi amps, it also features modern improvements that reproduces this classic sound for the modern player. Cornell amplifiers are designed to avoid frequency loss caused by printed circuits, by incorporating point-to-point wiring throughout. Each feature is hand-mounted onto a component board which is sealed using a conformal coating to prevent noise and the reduction of component life caused by moisture penetration. Highly trained staff take time in hand-wiring each component, to ensure the highest standards of reliability and sound. A stainless steel chassis accommodates the specially-designed transformers, and chassis mounted valves, providing you with a durable unit. This combo is equipped with a 12 inch Celestion speaker for the optimum tone and projection.

Dual Channels

Along with its unique construction, the Cornell Plexi Pro 18/20 1x12 Combo Amplifier is equipped with two independent channels, each having its own volume and tone. The tone controls are designed to work over the entire frequency range of your guitar, allowing increased amounts of low and high frequency adjustment. Channel Two has a brighter tone than that of that of Channel One, and is ideal for playing solos or isolated guitar riffs. In addition, this portable combo is also equipped with a a switchable output, offering 5 watts to 20 watts depending on your situation.

Switchable Valve Rectification

As well as dual channels the Plexi Pro is also equipped with an 18/20 switch which changes the rectifier from valve (18) to semiconductor (20). The valve rectifier gives a bluesy ‘sag’ in output, while the semiconductor rectifier has a faster response and less sag, improving transient attack. The Plexi Pro 18/20 Combo is made to ensure a very close reproduction of the full harmonic spectrum of your guitar’s pickups, resulting in a true, natural sound that will stand out in any application.
