Here’s the first “official” video of the REVV amps G2 Distortion. We shot a quick demo of it at our Brooklyn Stompbox Exhibit 2019 (see below).

The pedal delivers the expressive and organic warm lead tones delivered by REVV amps’ Green channel with three voicing options through the middle toggle switch:

Off gives you a full-range boost with 3-band EQ suitable for enhancing your clean tone or boosting your amp. Blue is the core tone of the pedal – touch responsive with musical breakup. Red brings you a fat classic amp-like gain tone.

Since during our Brooklyn Stompbox Exhibit 2019, we had:

  1. approximately a gazillion pedals in a room and…
  2. a videographer (also in that room) called Ian, aka collector//emitter

…we put two and two together and asked Ian to shoot videos of the brand new pedals presented at our event!

Let’s start with something that’s so new it hasn’t even been released yet! In recent months, Canadian amp builder REVV has stunned the dirt box loving masses with two very well received distortion pedals (the G3 and the G4) emulating their flagship amp. At our Brooklyn show, they presented the G2, a “crunch overdrive” that’s expected to ship July 2019.

It delivers the expressive and organic warm lead tones delivered by REVV amps’ Green channel with three voicing options through the middle toggle switch:

Off gives you a full-range boost with 3-band EQ suitable for enhancing your clean tone or boosting your amp. Blue is the core tone of the pedal – touch responsive with musical breakup. Red brings you a fat classic amp-like gain tone.

Check out collector//emitter’s first demo below and more info right under it.

Revv’s Green Channel 2 is an expressive crunch channel loved by Nashville session artists for its feel & clarity.

Applying the Green Channel to an amp-like pedal format also resulted in a great boost/overdrive, always-on tone-enhancer, or even old-school higher gain sounds.
