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 with vintage Celestion 25-watt "Greenbacks")
• GB30 (Marshall "100" birch cab with 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 with Celestion G12M-65 Creambacks)*
• 4x12 (Marshall 1960 TV cab with 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 Halen is 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.

I rented one for a day because I was considering buying it and if they're that good, I'd even collect them all. So, the build quality is second to none, and the tones are fantastic, for sure. I wouldn't be disappointed with this unit. The "reverb" (room knob) barely cuts it for me though. It's very easy to use. However, I find it doesn't sound any better than my Line 6 Pod express, and that has 7 amp models, a tuner, whole bunch of effects, runs on batteries and can be your whole rig in one pedal, for half the price. And most importantly, sounds better to me. So I can't justify the high cost of this. Especially when they don't offer multiple amps like Strymon and force you to buy multiple pedals. Great pedal, sounds fantastic, built perfectly, just not packing a lot of value. If you've got the money to spare, and only want one single amp, then it may be for you.

Man I love this thing. Dialling in flavours and sounds give it such an authentic experience. The voicing and feel that it puts out is about as close we are going to get to the 3 Plexi Heads, and colouring it with a couple pedals will prove its versatility in the Church or chugging my 7. No more hauling cabs around as this is a live rig if you have the right setup. Into a Headrush or House with in ears. Maybe one day an 800.

UA succeeded in making a "really good" Marshall sounding guitar pedal. I Tried different guitars single coil or humbucker pickups through it at home and I was able to find a good sound for each guitar through the pedal.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
