The Universal Audio UAFX Lion 68 Super Lead Amp has three classic British amp types in a pedal with speaker cab and simulated room spaces.

The amps are based on Marshall with a Super Lead, Super Bass and 'Brown' which is based on the voltage being controlled by a Variac to achieve the famous Eddie Van Halen’s Brown Sound.

Experience Legit Tube Amp Tones, from Stage to Studio

Whether it's replacing your amp 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.

Experience 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 pairing with overdrives, fuzzes and delays.

Go Brown for Hot-Rodded Heaven

The “brown sound” of Van Halen is ground zero for hot-rodded Super Lead tones. From the sag of a voltage-starved Super Lead amp to the mixed Celestion 25-watt "Greenback"/JBL D-120F 4x12 cabinet, you'll get the aggressive sizzle, softer midrange attack, and string-to-string definition that inspired generations of guitarists.

Customize your Sound with the UAFX App

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

Speaker Simulation

The pedal also features the Dynamic Speaker Modeling technology from popular Ox Amp Top Box. This allows guitarists to control the speaker cabinets, plus the mic and room sounds, via the UAFX Control Bluetooth connected app.
