The Revv G3 Purple Channel is a new, tight and clear distortion pedal that’s getting a lot of attention [(and it’s actually not out yet…) from a manufacturer that has built a name for itself through tube guitar amps and cabinets, and as a matter of fact the stompbox is presented as the third channel of their own Generator 100 Amplifier.
A pedal designed with metal players in mind, the G3 features a very responsive 3-way EQ section and Blue and Red aggression modes that give slightly different character in the mids (red being the most aggressive).
A slew of the video surfaced in the last few weeks, Ryan from 60 Cycle Hum and Ola Englund seems particularly enthusiastic about it, check out all the demos of the REVV G3 distortion, below:
