Marshall-inspired pedals are still among the all-time favorite of rock guitarist, and the Kourbis Plexivibe, hailing from Greece, is a solid, hand-built take on the format, featuring two 12AX7 tubes inside the case, and vintage NOS materials as a true Marshall amp.
The PlexiVibe has three modes, accessible through a toggle switch on the top of the 6 amp-style knobs, that deliver a variation in gain, compression and overall flavor.
On the side of the case, a 2-way switch provides a mid-boost voicing or extra compression.
Here’s the video of it.

VOLUME – In conjunction with the gain control a variety of sounds can be achieved.
MASTER – Controls the output volume level.
