Gervana Unleashes the New Ji Wei High-Gain Distortion Pedal

The Chinese brands tribute to legendary American high-gain amp tone.

China (September 3, 2018) -- Adding to the company’s line of professional-caliber effects, Gervana has launched the new Ji Wei High-Gain Distortion Pedal, Gervana’s tribute to the legendary American hi-gain amp tone. The Ji Wei (pronounced “Jee Way”) may be the most versatile "Mesa in a box" pedal you can find.

The Ji Wei offers a huge variety of distortion tones – ranging from subtle sizzle to punishing power – in a compact and portable pedal. Among the key features that enables this versatility: the Ji Wei’s 5-band EQ allows for precise tone shaping. The Ji Wei’s “Effect” switch on the left will activate the V-boost which makes your tone instantly more modern and aggressive. The shape of this V can be controlled with three small trim pots accessible through the battery compartment on the back of the pedal. The Ji Wei’s two-stage boost toggle switch increases not only gain, but penetration.

Armed with over a dozen years of sonic know-how, Gervana has devoted its engineering expertise to create a pedal that’s ideal for any player who is looking for instantly usable, musical high-gain distortion.

Gervana’s Ji Wei offers the following features:

  • 5-Band EQ
  • Effect Switch that adds volume, gain and a V-EQ curve
  • Two levels of Boost
  • Boost EQ Shaping via 3 trim pots on circuit board accessible through the battery compartment
  • 9-volt operation and standard DC input

The Ji Wei carries a street price of $149.99. For more information visit
