Universal Audio LION ’68 Super Lead Amp Guitar Pedal

The Universal Audio Lion ’68 Super Lead Amp pedal gives you the classic British amp sounds. In particular, sounds made famous by decades of legendary artists including Jimi Hendrix, Van Halen, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, and more. Lion ’68 is the only pedal that delivers the dead-on tones of three distinct 100-watt plexi amplifiers.

Lion ’68 is built on powerful dual-engine processing and world-class UAD modelling. Get all the gorgeous cleans, aggressive breakup, and hot-rodded roar of the originals.

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.

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 4×12 cabinet, you’ll get the meaty sizzle, softer attack, and string-to-string definition that inspired generations of guitarists.

Add Authentic Boosts with Lion ’68

Only Lion ’68 lets you take your crunch and searing lead tones further with tried-and-true boost recipes. In fact, it’s all thanks to its Maestro EP-III preamp, Boss GE-10 ten-band EQ, and classic Variac and bias adjustments.

Customize your Sound with the UAFX App

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