UA Introduces UAFX Lion '68 Super Lead Amp Emulator Pedal, Putting Authentic Plexi Amp Sounds in a Box

— New Amp Emulator is joined by Teletronix LA‑2A Studio Compressor, Flow Vintage Tremolo, and Brigade Studio Chorus & Vibrato Pedals —

SCOTTS VALLEY, CA • April 21, 2024 — Universal Audio Inc. (UA), a worldwide leader in audio production tools including Apollo and Volt audio interfaces, UAD plug‑ins, UA microphones, is proud to welcome the Lion '68 Super Lead Amp Emulator, Flow Vintage Tremolo, Teletronix LA‑2A Studio Compressor, and Brigade Chorus & Vibrato to the award‑winning UAFX guitar pedal lineup.

Built on powerful dual‑engine processing and world‑class UAD modeling, the flagship Lion ‘68 Super Lead Amp Emulator delivers the unmistakable tones of three distinct 100‑watt Marshall "plexi" amplifier setups.* With the flip of its Model switch, Lion '68 gives guitarists access to the same tones that fueled decades of artists including Jimi Hendrix, AC/DC, and Van Halen**, taking players from gorgeous cleans, to aggressive breakup, to full on hot‑rodded roar.

"When we released UAFX Dream, Ruby and Woodrow amp emulator pedals, we were thrilled to see their near‑instant acceptance from guitarists who had never even considered 'modeling' pedals before," said James Santiago, Sr. Product Designer. "We put our heart, soul, and decades of analog expertise into Lion '68. So from the first chord that you play, it will sound and more importantly, feel, like the amp that defined rock and roll."

UAFX Lion ‘68 Super Lead Amp pedal gives guitarists the classic British amp sounds made famous by decades of legendary artists including Jimi Hendrix, Van Halen, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, and more.*
