This is an extremely straightforward yet versatile three-knob circuit with Threshold, Hold and Release, where the Hold control fine-tunes the feel, ensuring the gate doesn’t close when you want it to remain open.
It also features an FX loop.
The Revv G8 Noise Gate is the new, simple, zero-compromise, solution to taking control of your rig. Noise comes from so many places – the room you’re in, your guitar, your amp, pedals, other pieces of gear in the signal chain. Dealing with that gets in the way of music, live & in the studio. None of us like the noise, but we usually just deal with it because the solutions aren’t ideal. That’s why we had to build a flexible noise gate to keep your entire rig quiet with zero downside. G8’s controls will let you dial in that sliced & diced metal rhythm tone when you need it – but most importantly it is designed to maintain the sonic integrity of your guitar tone. You will feel the same & sound the same – all you’ll be wondering is where the noise went. Hear the silence!
“After the positive response to Generator 120 MK3’s built-in gate, I knew we could design a killer rock & metal gate. The real journey began once we decided it had to be so transparent we could convert guitarists who would normally never touch a gate.” -Dan Trudeau, President & Head Designer Revv Amplification Inc.
G8 may be the best example of Revv’s commitment to building gear based on feedback from professional artists & engineers. We weren’t really planning on designing a gate until the response to Generator 120 MK3’s gate was so positive. Dan Trudeau quickly got to work on expanding that gate’s featureset into a standalone pedal with fast, silent performance for rock & metal players. However, the real journey began when Revv’s session & touring artists started asking about the gate. Players like that normally don’t use gates, but often are told by the artist or FOH engineer that they have to use one. What if we could make a gate so transparent that clean, blues, worship – even country guitarists liked it? Asking customers & artists what could make their life easier is how we make sure we are designing gear that’s unique & useful.
