I was an early adopter on this pedal. I grabbed one as soon as they were available. I play through a Revv Generator 7-40 head and the purple channel is the only thing I was missing so it was a no-brainer. I think that the G3 pedal really captures the purple channel as closely as you can expect in a small box. It literally has more than enough gain on tap for anything I can imagine. I found the sweet spot to be at about 3-4 on the gain knob, but a couple notches higher and you could easily rip some Pantera/Hair Metal harmonics with ease. At one point I did a shootout between 6-7 boost/OD/pre-amp pedals and the G3 more than held it's own against pricier boutique pedals (Chase Bliss) and against tried classics (Ibanez TS9). It is a little bit costly, but it is made in Canada and the company has top level service. I am a Revv customer and I will be for a long time.

I could not recommend this pedal highly enough. I play with this pedal in front of a Fender Princeton, and this pedal sounds absolutely massive. The layout is simple and easy to use, so you can get the tone you're looking for without hassle. My only complaint is that it did not include a power supply; For $300 I though a power supply would be included.

Very tight but also inspiring pedal to play. Tighter than my Friedman BE-OD. The fundamental note never gets buried, it remains clear and blunt in its attack. It still feels spongy and good under the fingers. Beautiful distortion texture. When aggression switch is in off position, it makes no noise. Super flexible EQ. Great for players who love to have every single note stand out and who value precision. Sounds and feels more like an amp than a pedal. Use in front of clean amp. Excellent piece of gear from Canadian company. Get it! Can't imagine any heavy player that wouldn't like it.

This is an extremely versatile unit that easily handles lightly overdriven blues stuff all the way to progressive metal. It works with tube amps, plays well with my modeller, and even works well as an amp in a box. The sweep on all of the EQ settings is very broad, and there are no useless ranges. It truly is one of the best pieces of gear I have owned.

Does everything except clean boost. If not perfection. OD boost to distortion & high gain boost. On it`s own a phenomenal OD distortion & high gain unit. All your guitars keep their unique character . Extremely string responsive & articulate. Brings a already good amp alive to the next level. purchased this only trusting the very limited youtube demos. slightly pricey, well worth the investment. G.

Compression?, distotion?,tone?, very responsive. Like an amp on full power but controllable so your neighbors won't hate you. So responsive. Invites you to shred. Very full chord voicing. I use it with a noise gate. Perfect for my living room concerts.

This pedal totally trumps the Wampler Pinnacle Deluxe which I thought was the "bee's knees" for the longest time. This thing can go from SRV to Slipknot. The EQ settings allow you to change the presence of the frequencies in a very pleasing way; extremely flexible. Nothing is shrill, and certainly not muddy. The best part of it is that it is made in Manitoba, Canada; what better way to support our economy. As a teacher of Long & McQuade I recommend this pedal to ALL of my students and to anyone else for that matter.
