Lion | Lead Amplifier Pedal

  • Authentic end-to-end replication of the ’68 Super Lead amplifier

  • 3 separate speaker/cab/mic options for a wide range of different tonal flavors
  • 3 bonus cabs are provided when registering the Lion
  • 4-cable mode bypasses your amplifier’s preamp when the pedal is engaged
  • USB-C port for firmware updates
  • Bluetooth-compatible for access to Universal Audio’s UAFX app
  • Save and access presets using the right footswitch

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.  Lion ’68 is the only pedal that delivers the dead-on tones of three distinct 100-watt plexi amplifiers. Built on powerful dual-engine processing and world-class UAD modeling, you get all the gorgeous cleans, aggressive breakup, and hot-rodded roar of the originals.

Experience Legit Tube Amp Tones, from Stage to 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.

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, delays, and more.

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 4×12 cabinet, you’ll get the aggressive sizzle, softer midrange 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 — at the turn of a knob

Get the Nerdy Details on our “Golden Units”

To capture classic plexi sounds, we sought out prime specimens — a ’68 Super Lead and ’69 Super Bass — each bone stock with “laydown” transformers. For the “Brown” amp, we used a Variac to bring the wall power down to 90 volts and rebiased the amp extra hot, giving you the authentic sound and feel of the most famous hot-rodded sound ever recorded.
