For many, many years you've basically had 2 choices for your Overdrive/Distortion pedals: You could either get 'Soft-clipped' Bluesy, slightly compressed-type Overdrive pedals, or you could get 'Hard-Clipped'-type Distortion pedals.
What if there was a pedal that offered both? There is now - the Fulltone PlimSoul.
PlimSoul has those Softer Bluesey, Compressed capabilities but also has a Second Stage that you can roll in with the turn of a little dial to add that firmer, crunchier, British output tube style Distortion! What's more is you not only hear and feel it... you can SEE the pedal reacting to your every mood via a firey LED that glows brighter and dimmer depending on how distorted it is and how hard you're hitting it.
Clean up with the guitar's volume control? More than any, yes, even more than the OCD.
Speaking of OCD, people ask 'What's the comparison?' Easy answer: OCD has an honest flat EQ that won't change your amp's tone. PlimSoul has a gorgeous enhanced Midrange and Lower midrange - excellent for transforming a combo into a Marshall-like lead machine, although not so necessary if you already have a Marshall-like amp.
Good with Humbuckers as well as Single coils? Yep.
Does it play nice with other pedals? Yes, it has an Ideal 500K Input Impedance, ideal super low 10K output impedance.
Can I blend the 2 types of Distortion? Yes, and you can also have ONLY Soft clipped or ONLY Hard Clipped!
In a Nutshell? The Fulltone Plimsoul offers extremely good Sustain/Feedback qualities, just the right amount of Mids, bottom, great touch sensitivity, dynamics, and all those in-between shades available when you know how to use your guitar's volume control.
