Get the iconic plexi tones that powered rock.

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

Built on powerful dual-engine processing and world-class UAD modeling, Lion ‘68 is the only pedal that delivers the dead-on tones of three distinct 100-watt plexi amplifiers — for gorgeous cleans, aggressive breakup, and hot-rodded roar.

Experience Legit Tube Amp Tones, Stage and Studio

Whether it's replacing your amp rig and going direct to front-of-house, or recording tracks into your DAW — Lion '68 gives you the inspiring, album-ready tones of three expertly miked "golden unit" 100-watt plexi amp heads — with sonic realism far beyond other digital modelers — within seconds.

Play Through Award-Winning Speaker Cab Emulations

Using the same Dynamic Speaker Modeling technology as Ox Amp Top Box, Lion '68 Super Lead gives you the authentic thump of six classic speaker cabinet setups, with perfectly placed studio mics and dynamic room sounds. 

  • GB25: (Late '60s Marshall w/ vintage Celestion 25-watt "Greenbacks")
  • GB30: (Marshall "100" birch cab w/ Celestion 30-watt "Greenbacks")
  • JB|GB: (Two Celestion 25-watt "Greenbacks" / Two JBL D-120 Fs
  • 1x12 Electro-Voice EVM12*
  • 2x12 (Two-Rock Extension cab w/Celestion G12M-65 Creambacks)*
  • 4x12 (Marshall 1960 TV cab w/ Celestion Vintage 30s)*

*Available with UAFX Control app.

Discover Authentic Super Lead Sound

Lion '68 is the only amp-in-a-box pedal that faithfully captures the bell-like cleans, aggressive kerrang,and soaring distortion of a vintage hand-picked Super Lead head, giving you tones that jump from your speakers and electrify your nervous system. 

Get Classic Super Bass Tones for your Pedal Platform

Looking for less aggression with a spongier attack and more clean headroom? Lion '68's Super Bass will get you there, with a jaw-dropping emulation of this classic plexi variant — perfect for auditioning overdrives, fuzzes, reverbs, and more.

Go Brown for the Ultimate in a Modified Super Lead

The guitar tone on Van Halenis ground zero for "hot-rodded" Super Lead tones. From the sag of a voltage-starved Super Lead amp to the split Celestion 25-watt "Greenback"/JBL D-120F 4x12 cabinet, you'll get the meaty sizzle, softer attack, and string-to-string definition that inspired generations of guitarists.

Add Authentic Boosts

Only Lion '68 lets you take your crunch and searing lead tones further with tried-and-true boost recipes — including a Maestro EP-III preamp, Boss GE-10 ten-band EQ, and classic Variac and bias adjustments — at the turn of a knob.** 

Customize your Sound with the UAFX App

Lion '68 gets even better with the UAFX Control mobile app. Tweak the onboard noise gate, download custom tones, recall and archive your presets, and dive deeper into the sound that spans generations.

  • Powerful UAFX dual-engine delivers the most authentic late-'60s British 100-watt tube sound ever placed into a stompbox
  • Authentic emulations of three legendary high-powered tube amplifiers — Super Lead, Super Bass, and "Brown"
  • Includes the world's best speaker cabinet, mic, and room tones derived from the award-winning OX Amp Top Box
