Revv Amplification Puts AI to the Test with the Chatbreaker Overdrive

Revv Amplification Puts AI to the Test with the Chatbreaker Overdrive

The Chatbreaker is based on the classic Bluesbreaker circuit, but with considerable updates made by Revv’s President Dan Trudeau.

Revv Amps are known for collaborating with artists & engineers, but they took inspiration from a new place for their Chatbreaker overdrive.

“Really, no matter what we prompted - we couldn’t get ChatGPT to put a functional pedal together. But I was looking at what it was returning & realized - it’s a Bluesbreaker! Well, it’s trying to be a Bluesbreaker. I always thought it would be fun to put my spin on that circuit, so after some major redesigns & testing - the Chatbreaker was born! It has that wonderful‘ warm-but-clear’ quality to add some old-school mojo to your sound. So did the experiment work? Not really. I don’t think A.I. is ready to replace all of us just yet. I guess this is more of an Artificial Idea with Human Intelligence.” -Dan Trudeau, President & Head Designer

The Revv Amplification Chatbreaker features:

  • Revv’s take on the iconic “Is it clean? Is it dirty?” Bluesbreaker design, optimized for touch-sensitivity & clarity.
  • Analog Heart - Add organic character & push to your sound with an all-analog signal path.
