The Universal Audio Lion 68 Super Lead Amp Pedal is a stereo amp and cabinet emulation pedal with three Super Lead tube amp emulations, multiple speakers, cabinets, and boosts, live and preset modes, and customization with the UAFX mobile app.
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.
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.
