Like a lot of amp-in-a-box pedals, the Room #40 from Tsakalis AudioWorks makes some pretty lofty claims. Specifically, it alleges to capture the soul and essence of a Marshall plexi and, with the flip of a switch, a JCM800, too. There’s a lot of reasons to try to replicate the sound and feel of these amps in a pedal—not least their resale values of late. I’ve played a slew of Marshall-in-a-box pedals. And while many of them deliver convincing-enough bark, they’re rarely dynamic enough to stay on my pedalboard for long. The Room #40, however, often escapes that trap and offers a lot of flexibility for matching it to changing backlines.
