Marshall GV2

Effects PedalFor all fans of the harder variety, this little distortion is a hot tip. Where it says Marshall, you get something really 'Marshall-esque': While the Bluesbreaker II really goes in the direction of old amps without master volume, the Guv'nor Plus delivers first and foremost the second set of the classic sounds of the big black towers: JCM 800, 900, as well as 2000 series (lead channel). Thanks to its triple-tone control, the Guv'nor is very flexible, and with the additional Deep control, the rumble of a 4x12 from the same category can be impressively modelled. And for all people who want to enjoy their amp pure, the pedal has a true bypass switch!

Better than the original 80s model

Raymond588, 12.01.2018
I rate the Guv?nor GV2 very highly. I bought it a couple of years ago when I began playing electric guitar again, as I used to use the original Guv?nor back in the Eighties. It has hardly changed. It is still as good as ever, giving some very interesting and wild tones. Low gain blues to hard rock. It is so easy to use and quick to change sounds.
It looks good and feels right when fitted in with other FX units. It is built like a tank, solid and unbreakable, unless dropped in a bucket of water of course.
I first of all looked around for one of the original 80s models but they cost over double the price of the GV2 and are probably worked to death. I am very happy with this one and for the price is amazing.
I am actually a bass player and I do use this unit combined with a little chorus for certain numbers when gigging. It is very versatile.
You don?t need a Marshall amp to go with it, so for the price of a good night out, go get it.

Boutique overdrive sounds and great value

John390, 21.05.2018
I have a few overdrive/distortion pedals, which I normally use to add a little more breakup/crunch to a valve amp (AC15 or Bassbreaker) for recording. The Guv'nor is a great pedal for three main reasons: first, it really does give you big Marshall tones, second it has a four-channel EQ section (including "deep" knob), which you won't find on many OD pedals (Angry Charlie comes to mind) and finally, it must be the best-value pedal offering this quality currently available. My only minor gripe is with the double-knob arrangement, which you need both hands for. Overall, very impressed!
