Revv Amps Unleash G20: High Gain Follow-up To The World’s First Torpedo-Embedded Amp

Revv Amps Unleash G20: High Gain Follow-up To The World’s First Torpedo-Embedded Amp

High Gain Tube Tone, Meet Reactive Load & Virtual Cabs

Revv Amplification have returned after a year of research & development to bring you the G20, an all-tube lunchbox amplifier that brings huge high gain tone & Two notes reactive load & virtual cabinets in one portable made-in-Canada package.

“The G20 was the next logical step. D20 was received so well & immediately people were dropping it into their studios, live rigs, modeling rigs – the tube tone & Torpedo-Embedded together can give you great tone in any situation, including some we didn’t even think of ourselves! The D20 worked so great for pedal users so also putting our signature gain sound into that form factor just made sense. It sounds & feels great! It was important to me that we get our high gain Purple Channel tone right, but I also added some quality of life features like recalling different channels & voices with MIDI, as well as ensuring each Aggression Mode sounds very different so you have a lot of distinct tones available to you. The goal was to make something self-contained for guitarists that don’t use a lot of pedals – I’m sure we’ll be surprised again by what people do with this amp!” Continue reading →
