Since I tried the Revv Purple channel on my Line 6 HX Stomp I've been dreaming of getting that tone in a dedicated box. I can't afford a Revv Generator 120 MK3 and needed to free DSP from my HX. Also, I'd rather prefer an ampless setup and have "my sound" readily available for most situations.

The REVV G3 is the solution and man, it sounds really awesome!

I'm using the G3 as a preamp going into cab IRs and I'm extremely satisfied! It's perfect for rhythmic metal tones and works well even for leads.

The knobs and aggression button really help shaping the sound. I prefer aggression on blue but red could be useful for a more saturated and compressed evil tone.

Even though I'm on blue settings this pedal has quite some punch and then some! Pure power!

Revv really nailed it on this one and the G3 is my favourite distortion pedal at the moment (which I use as a preamp actually!). I love the tone and it's perfect for metal. Great rhythm and leads guaranteed!

Thanks Revv!
And big thanks to Thomann for the amazing products and super fast delivery! Outstanding service


6-star product. Believe me

This is probably the kind of pedal that will make you not look back at any piece of gear you had before. Just one day using this pedal and no more quest for perfect and motivating tones that I have been looking for so long.
Getting into the real thing:
This pedal is easy to tweak. So straight forward that you will not spend more than a few seconds to find the first pleasant setting. All the knobs are really responsive. There is also a small 3-way switch in the middle which will add tons of gain to your distortion.
The box is sturdy metallic purple-painted and surprisingly lightweight. Easily fittable to a pedalboard. No nightmares to attach some velcro to its bottom.
I technically have none. Maybe the boutique product price?
Not really because every cent paid on this definitely is reflected back in satisfaction. If you are on a budget there are other good options but if you have the money this is a no-brainer.

I'd been thinking about buying this pedal for a while before actually pulling the trigger on it and boy, I'm glad I did so! This thing is a beast, it handled everything I threw at it, and masterfully so.

I use it with the clean channel of my BOSS Katana 50. It sounds like a tube amp, very organic and defined. When the aggression switch is off, the gain is lower and somehow blends with the clean tone of the amp. The blue mode is heavier, but very tight and articulate, perfect for djent-style stuff or heavier rock. The red mode is the one I use most. It is a bit scooped, enough to give it a killer metal tone, the setting feels overall 'looser' but every note still rings clearly.

I downside would be that it's a slidy pedal, and the back scratches easily when doing so. I would have liked a rubber casing of some sort included, but this is not a deal breaker.

One of my best guitar related purchases!


Expensive? Yes! Good? LEGENDARY!

I got this pedal 4 months ago,
it comes in with nice packaging , some guidelines and sticker.

Looks gorgeous, high quality and well built. Outside is made out of steel
and coated with purple shiny paint. Knobs are solid, so is the switch.

When you plug your guitar in that little wonder, prepare for blast off. I combined this pedal with KATANA 50 amp and my custom patch, and discovered new dimension of sound.

I am hard chugga chugga fan and adore good chugging crunchy sounds, full of crisp and fatness. Despite all this sound is still clean and notes of chords shine through.

I agree, pedal is not cheap...
But, do i regret it?
It is hands down my favourite guitar related purchase in 2018 and i bought decent amount of things that year.

(Also, this pedal creates some hum, when activated, if you are really sensitive, use noise gate, otherwise at the moment, that you start playing, hum cant be heard,it s only heard during guitar inactivity)

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS WONDER to anyone who likes to metal it up full way, and even if not, it still delivers- rock,punk,metal..whatever floats your boat!
