Atlanta, GA (August 27, 2012) – After receiving countless requests, Jetter Gear has combined into a single enclosure, a cutting edge overdrive pedal incorporating two of its most popular pedals, the Red Shift and the Helium. From transparent low gain boost to singing violin tone, the Red Square adds tremendous tonal flexibility to any guitarist’s arsenal in a compact elegant design.

The Helium side of the Red Square is a low-gain overdrive with character. Capable of providing a range of tones from cleanish boosts, chunky rhythms and edge-of-breakup lead tones, the Helium is the perfect stacking pedal. The Red Shift side has a unique voicing switch that offers up a sweet and syrupy saturation in the “Red” mode and completely changes character when set to “Shift” mode--a more aggressive and dynamic British voice. Together, the two combine seamlessly to offer an amazingly flexible overdrive platform that will meet the tonal needs of the most demanding guitarists.

The Red Square features:
• Independent control of Volume, Gain and Tone for each channel.
• Custom made steel enclosure for unparalleled durability.
• True bypass operation.
• 9-18VDC operation.

The Red Square has a MAP price of $249 and is available through dealers world wide.

This 1964 Vibrolux Reverb arrived in all-original condition, right down to a two-prong power cord and a death cap wired to the ground switch. The author’s well-worn Strat is the perfect companion.

Fat tones from a sweet niche where Les Paul, Gretsch, and Telecaster share the limelight.

If you only pay casual attention to Reverend guitars, it’s easy to overlook how different their instruments can be. Some of that may be due to the way Reverends look. There are longstanding styling themes and strong family likenesses among models that can make differentiation a challenge for uninitiated guitar spotters. For instance, the Flatroc reviewed here has more or less the same body as the Charger, Buckshot, and Double Agent OG (which has an entirely different body than the more Jazzmaster-like Double Agent W). If you don’t have an experienced Reverend enthusiast at your side, it can all be a bit mind bending.
