Few amps are more legendary than the late '60s British Super Lead-style heads. The Universal Audio UAFX Lion '68 Super Lead amp pedal puts immaculate recreations of the most in-demand variants on your pedalboard. Using UA's dual-engine processing and renowned UAD modeling, you get dead-on versions of three distinctly different, "golden-unit" 100-watt "plexi" heads as well as six different cabinet models to match them up with. And, as they love to say on TV infomercials, "But wait, there's more!" 

UAFX Lion '68 Super Lead Pedal

Legendary Tones From the U.K.

Let's start by looking at what the Lion '68 Super Lead pedal has to offer in amplifiers. First, the classic, singing, punch and crunch of a hand-picked, vintage Super Lead head provides tones that leap from your speakers and summon the ghosts of rock ‘n’ roll greats. Next, a meticulous model of a Super Bass head loosens the attack a little while providing more headroom that's ideal for stacking with other pedals. Third, UA packed in the classic hot-rodded Super Lead that's fully "Brown Sound" capable.

Speaker Cabinet for Any Application

The UAFX Lion '68 Super Lead pedal provides six classic speaker cabinet setups, modeled with the same UA Dynamic Speaker Modeling technology as their groundbreaking Ox Amp Top Box. Whether you want creamy or cutting, pristine or with speaker breakup, your choices are all here from 1x12 to 4x12, and from "Greenbacks" and "Creambacks” to hybrid cabinets combining super-clean, high-wattage punch with low-wattage grit.

Get the Boost (or Cut) You Need

Remember that, "But wait, there's more" part? Not only do you get three classic British Super Lead variants, not only do you get six iconic speaker cabinets, but UA boosts your tone even further with, well, boosts—including models of the Maestro EP-III preamp, a BOSS GE-10 10-band EQ, plus a model of a Variac and adjustable bias settings, so you can get as tweaky as you want dialing in your perfect plexi sound.
