Revv Amplification Unveils the G2 Overdrive

A pedal-sized version of the green channel from their Generator series.

Winnipeg, Manitoba (June 24, 2019) -- Revv Amplification’s G-Series pedals quickly gained a reputation for serious big amp tones in a small stompbox & they’re not done yet! The G2 brings the final gain channel from their boutique amplifiers, the crunchy & responsive green channel, to a pedal format. The G2 excels at everything from almost-clean to classic rock distortion.

"The plan from the start with G-Series pedals was to recreate the tone of our amplifiers. The G2 was the final piece of that puzzle... but it turned into so much more! My goal was to make our most organic & inspiring pedal to date. That actually came pretty quickly – a great representation of our touch-sensitive crunchy green channel! However, I sent it to one of our Nashville artists. He had great feedback totally unrelated to our green channel. Rather, how to simply make the best pedal possible for this application with maximum versatility as an “amp in a box.” Then one of our employees said it would be cool if the G2 could be used as a boost as well... With these new goals in mind, the G2 quickly became an entirely new animal - capable of far more than just the amp channel itself.”

The Revv G2 features:

  • Pedal-Format Version of Green Channel 2 from Revv's Generator-Series Amplifiers
  • 3-Position Drive Switch for Different Bass Response, Saturation, & Gain Levels
  • 3-Band EQ + Gain & Volume Controls

  • Laser-Etched Reflective Green Enclosure with Bright Blue LED
  • 9v Center Negative Power

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.

How our columnist’s risky purchase turned out to be a dusty pre-CBS jewel.

This month, I’d like to share the story of my 1964 Fender Vibrolux Reverb. It was a really risky purchase that had some big surprises.

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

Copious, unexpected tones. Cool, useful bass contour control. Very nice build quality. Excellent value.

Heavy.

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.
