What’s the difference between the Red Channel & the Purple Channel?
The Red Channel is our highest gain channel. It is very saturated with a low mid focus & is fat & easy to play. The Purple Channel is our tightest & clearest channel. While it has a lot of gain – it has a more upper mid focus with a razor sharp low end. Hear the Red Channel here and the Purple Channel here.
Some of your amps have a lot of switches. Are they hard to dial in?
We put a lot of effort into this. Amps with tons of switching can often just make an amp take longer to dial in. That sucks. All of ours have a purpose. Switching to single coils? Need a lead boost? Want more cut? All of our switches are designed to voice the amp the way you like, or let you change the character quickly & with purpose without turning any knobs.
Do Revvs take pedals well?
Yep! We love pedals. The clean channels are very organic & capable of being really clean so you can stack to your heart’s delight. Many players think our distortion is tight and punchy enough without overdrives, but feel free to shape it even more with your favorite drive. Our FX loop is also totally awesome, to make sure you get the most out of your delays, modulations, and wacky effects.
What’s the difference between Revv pedals? G2, G3, & G4.
So Revv Amplification makes amp-like Revv pedals which are color coded based on the channels from our Generator 120 amplifier & are numbered increasing in gain. Revv G2 is a clean / crunchy OD up through classic amp gain tones (it’s not “that green overdrive” despite the color coincidence!), the Revv G3 has a tight clear tone, and the Revv G4 will have the most, thickest gain.
How will I integrate a Revv into my digital rig?
Revv Amps are fully programmable, with or without midi. This makes them ideal for hybrid rigs that include modeling (we’ve worked with Line 6 to model the Generator 120 for Helix!), multi effects, or switchers. They even sound great through cab simulators, like Two notes products.
Speaking of Two notes – what are the Revv D20 & Revv G20? The D20 was the first Two notes amp? What does it do?
Not only do these amps pack our huge Revv Amplification tones into portable 9lb packages (Revv D20 for Dynamis clean & crunch, Revv G20 for Generator Purple Channel high gain), but they were some of the first amplifiers on Earth to include built in reactive load & impulse responses for direct XLR-out playing, performing & recording. This is unlike old direct technology because the reactive load doesn’t just allow you to play safely without a cabinet – it accurately replicates the feel & tone of a real cabinet. While the impulse responses are not simple analog EQ curves, but rather hyper-accurate captures of real speaker cabinets. This gives you unparalleled control & consistency for your tone while allowing you to have all the feel & ease of use of an analog tube amp married with the convenience & quality of life of cutting edge digital technology.
Do you make cabs?
Check them out right here. They’re built like tanks and we use premium WGS speakers for clear, huge tone perfectly suited to our amps. The Revv badge on the front even changes LED colors if you use them with your Revv head!
I’ve heard a lot of people call Revv amps “mix-ready.” What does this mean and how did you do that?
Amps can sound great, but generally have a lot of excess noise going on. That’s what makes your highs icepick, or your lows flubby. Even worse, you can wind up fighting with your bass player, the cymbals, or even the vocalist! (And we know we have to keep them happy) Any tone will love a little additional EQ and compression before going into a mix, but we spent a lot of time making Revv amps sound balanced, full, & huge so they can drop right into your live set or studio setup and sound as good as possible. Tight but full lows. Present but smooth highs. Punchy but clear mids. You really have to hear it for yourself!
Will Revvs work well in low tunings?
Oh yeah! Many of our artists use as low as 8 strings and don’t even use an overdrive in front.
I play blues & classic rock! Why do I need a Revv?
We put a huge focus on our clean and vintage-style tones. Feedback from A-level Nashville session & touring artists made us pursue these tones even more, and we’re so stoked that we’re used by musicians all over the music city! We’ve even become great friends with Shawn Tubbs who demonstrates these kinds of tones all the time!
Can I customize my amp when ordering?
100% yes. This is the best part. We have a wide range of tolex color options, as well as choice of chassis color, and even custom etchings for the faceplate. We even have a mockup tool that shows tolex & chassis combinations, & you can order options like knob color right on the product page, like here for example.
Can Revvs use different types of tubes?
I’ve heard about the Revv Amps Youtube – what’s going on there?
We have weekly tone, gear, & playing tutorials featuring our friend Shawn Tubbs! Not just Revv-focused demos, but everything a guitarist needs to improve their passion – or at least we’re getting there! Head on over & give us a sub!
Do you have manuals?
I couldn’t find an answer to my question here & now I’m sad. What do I do?
Contact us here. We will fulfill all of your wildest dreams. Or more than likely answer your email. That could be your wildest dream, though.
