Specifically, La Grange is made to emulate the British ‘Plexi’ amplifiers of the 1960s, such as Marshall. The pedals have several controls and switches that allow the user to not only emulate not only the classic Plexi sound, but also the higher gain tones of amps from the 80s and 90s.
The pedal has a boost function and level control, which can be used together with its main circuitry, or as a separate boost pedal, effectively making the La Grange two pedals in one.
Reinhold designed the La Grange pedal with an op-amp input, followed by five discrete Class A gain stages and incorporated Germanium diode clipping. This approach minimizes the input noise floor while retaining touch sensitivity and clarity throughout the entire gain range.
See the video below in which guitarists Doug Rappoport and Lance Lopez demonstrate the pedal’s versatility and sound.
