Revv Amps Introduces the Shawn Tubbs Tilt Overdrive

Developed with Nashville session ace Shawn Tubbs, this compact dual pedal provides organic, vintage tones, and the innovative "tilt boost."


The Canadian pedal gurus’ introduce their first Signature Series pedal - the Tilt Overdrive developed with Nashville session ace Shawn Tubbs. In this compact dual pedal, the Drive Circuit provides organic tones based on Shawn’s ideal combination of cranked vintage amps, while the innovative "Tilt Boost" goes from authentic clean boosting to powerful tone sculpting.

“I’ve been on so many different gigs that I know exactly what I need to perform. Cutting through the mix with the right mids, great feel that cleans up with your hands & the volume knob, a killer boost to kick in & just make everything sound better. Every time I’ve played an incredible vintage amp I’d get so inspired & that’s what went into this pedal. It’s all my favorite tones combined into one simple box. If you want to have my tone, well here it is in this pedal. But I think this pedal might help you sound like yourself.” - Shawn Tubbs

The emerging parts market in the ’80s, a luthier friend, and a cousin who studied acoustic engineering helped this bassist create a one-of-a-kind instrument.

Thank you for allowing us to share our bastardized beauties with you. I built this bass with the help of my friend Drew in 1980 or ’81. It was an instrument born out of necessity. Stock instruments of the time weren’t keeping up with the musical progressions that were happening in the ’70s and ’80s, so if you wanted to advance your art, you had to get creative. Fortunately, parts manufacturers and inventive minds were there to accommodate.

My years-long search for the “right” Bigsby-outfitted box finally paid off. Now how do I make this sumbitch work in my band?

Considering the amount of time I’ve spent (here and elsewhere) talking about and lusting after Gretsch hollowbody guitars, it’s taken me a remarkably long time to end up with a big Bigsby-outfitted box I truly love. High-end Gretsches are pricey enough that, for a long time, I just couldn’t swing it. Years ago I had an Electromatic for a while, and it looked and played lovely, but didn’t have the open, blooming acoustic resonance I hoped for. A while later, I reviewed the stellar Players Edition Broadkaster semi-hollow, and it was so great in so many ways that I set my sights on it, eventually got one, and adore it to this day. Yet the full-hollowbody lust remained.
