We dig the built-in Sentry Noise Gate, too. It keeps your entire rig whisper-quiet.

      MASH footswitches maximize expression

      The PLETHORA X5 is an expressive piece of gear, thanks to its five MASH footswitches. Real-time modulation ramping, volume swells, fluid mix control — you can do all that and more by applying pressure with your foot. Plus, each MASH switch can control up to three effect parameters simultaneously using customizable action curves, imbuing your effects with new dimensions of expression. Need more control? Not a problem for the PLETHORA X5. Its expression input accommodates an expression pedal, enabling you to take command of any effect or add a volume pedal anywhere in your signal chain.

      BYOD (Bring Your Own Drive)

      Drive pedals are at the heart of building your own tone. More so than any other type of pedal, they are integral to which kind of guitarist you see yourself as. They become part of your identity. An extension of yourself blasted through your amp! As such, you should have the choice to integrate your own favorite stompboxes into the signal chain. Plethora’s FX insert loop lets you add your preferred flavor of gain anywhere on the board you like. You can also use the insert for 4-cable method setup with your amplifier, letting you choose which effects go in front of your amp’s input and which effects live in your amp’s effects loop.

      Outfitted with 5 of our groundbreaking MASH footswitches, Plethora provides expression in a degree that was hitherto unknown. Volume swells, modulation ramping, fluid mix control and so much more. Each MASH footswitch lets you control your effects in real-time by simply mashing down on the footswitch. With each MASH switch controlling up to 3 effect parameters simultaneously through completely customizable action curves, your “always-on” effects suddenly grew a whole new dimension. Try it out for yourself!

      Expression On The Side

      Do you have a special place in your heart for expression pedals? Sometimes a certain song might call for separate parameter control outside of what the MASH switches provide. That’s cool., Plethora X5 features an EXP input to hook up your favorite expression pedal for controlling any effect you like or adding an extremely useful volume pedal, anywhere in the boards signal chain.

      Stay Connected

      Keeping An Ear Out

We already have a loooong list of ideas we want to try out but we want to hear from you! That’s right you, reading this right now! What features would you like to see Plethora getting in the future? Don’t be afraid to ask!

      No Strings On Me

      We all know how frustrating the entire pedalboard building process can be. After you’ve squeezed everything you want onto your board, angling pedals with different form factors to make them fit, there’s the Gordian knot of patch cables and power cords to take into account. Plethora X5 drastically cuts down on cable clutter by keeping most of the wiring virtual – on the inside of the unit where you can swap and switch trouble-free.

      Mix It Up!

      What would it sound like if you turned the usual order of delay into reverb upside down? Or if you insert your favorite, sputtery octave fuzz at the end of your chain after the time based effects? Great question! With Plethora’s Quick Swap feature, it’s a breeze to experiment with pedal routing. Just hold down the footswitches of two pedals that you’d like to swap around and it’s done. Easy peas. Cool beans.

      Cab Service When You Need It

      When you’re in the mood for going somewhere in a hurry, it’s nice to have dependable cab service! You may not have time or space to grab your amp and cabinet before rushing to the gig. As an added bonus we’ve included an optional global cab simulation made in-house, with British-style voicing. Makes “direct to PA”-gigs and home recording sessions a breeze!

      Life In Stereo

      With all of these studio-grade effects and TC’s legendary reputation for creating the lushest tones in the biz, we’d be remiss not to equip our flagship product with true stereo to let you experience the richest sounds in rock.
