    The obvious answer is the Wampler plexi deluxe but unfortunately the boost side by itself is not useful to me (sounds great boosting the drive side). Need an independent two channels, not just a drive boost.
    My ideal would be gain changer on one side and plexi style on the other, with independent/stacking. There are lots of BB style but unfortunately i don't get on with those and don't think they sound anything like the GC or Timmy as some do. The Mad Prof Supreme is the closest i have found as the Royal blue is good at the GC thing but would prefer a plexi to the mod Simble side although that pedal is awesome. Any suggestions welcome!

    If the price/size/complexity doesn't bother you then check out the Origin RevivalDrive.

    My first guess would be the JHS Sweet Tea, however I would also put the Visual Sound Jekyll & Hyde in there as well. Its not really a Plexi-drive but depending on what you are looking for it might do the trick and more. If you want something not quite as distortion oriented I would recommend their VS-XO, or the Paisley Deluxe, if you are in the lane for a Nobels ODR-1/tube screamer esq. combo.

    Look at the DCW pedals site. I have the Madame Marsha, which might fit the bill for you!

    Nice! I certainly understand the common dual combos TS/BB, Gain/Boost etc, but have wondered about the lack of some that make great sense like the one you suggested. I would also love the JHS Sweet Tea (great pedal) with the Charlie brown instead of Angry Charlie for what i do.

    Great call! Got the Mrs Marsha and it is exactly what i was looking for. Can't believe the DCW's don't get more mention in all the marshall pedal threads. Both sides of the Mrs are outstanding. (ug just read that last sentence, but since i'm not married i will leave it, lol)

    It's Gearmanndude! ( been a while)
    I wish we could see the 'thumscrew' settings- assuming Drive and Output, Tone ( or similar)

    Pretty good drive though, powerful !

    Zvex Box of Rock has Marshall in a box on one side, and SHO on the other.

    Why not just get a Plexi pedal you like and run another overdrive into it? Then you can get whatever options you want.

    I have wanted one of these for awhile. Can't say for sure, but I am pretty sure it will do a "dual pedal plexi".

    Also each side can be engaged separately, so no stacking, that is hard to find in some dual pedals.

    I’ve had several Plexi Marshall’s and not yet heard a Plexi pedal, especially when the demo video features licks we associate with classic recordings.

    What do you want the other OD side to sound like?
    The Z Vex double rock might be suitable.
    Both sides are the same circuit but offer a range of sounds so you just set them differently.
