Introducing the hugely versatile ‘G2’ from Canadian Amplifier/Pedal Wizards ‘Revv’. Revv’s ‘G2’ has collected hordes of fans throughout the Rock and Metal community, and for good reason too. Whilst the ‘G3’ and ‘G4’ are ferocious high-gain beasts, the G2 is a much more subtle affair. Based on the green channel from Revv’s ‘Generator’ amplifiers, this eye-catching little powerhouse has all the tone and power to match its vibrant housing.
The Revv G2 delivers a ‘crunch’ type tone that is responsive to the dynamics in your playing style and also your guitar’s volume knob, in much the same way as a valve amplifier.
The G2 features a sensitive 3-band EQ, allowing you to shape your tone to perfection. This gives you full control over the bass, mid, and treble frequencies.
3 Drive Modes
The G2 offers 3 separate drive modes, allowing you to adjust the pedal’s characteristics depending on the amplifier you’re running through. This versatility ensures that the G2 can adapt to any setup.
The G2 is not just a light overdrive/crunch pedal. At lower settings, it has a clear, boost-like tonality that can bring life to your clean tones. When running through a high-gain amplifier, it tightens your sound and adds serious saturation to your tone.
