Man I always just have a guitar sitting on a chair in the lounge so I think I play more now than ever...although its not "constructive" playing so I don't get "better" :rofl:


There's no way I'd survive if I pulled out a guitar during Shortland Street. :D


honestly you shouldn't "survive" allowing that shit to be on :rofl:

Indeed. If you had a band though you'd need to schedule time for it. Could you not find one?


I guess so, but I'll feeling pretty unmotivated and also very ill-equipped to join a band right now. I'm just too sloppy a player and too ill-disciplined to address that. It's a bit chicken and egg.


Meh don't let that stop you, if you have a purpose you will improve :)

Could be keen if the exchange rate gets a bit better.


It's been out for a while. Not exactly cheap at US$1600 though, older BE100 (2 input jack ones) are about US$2K used nowadays.

Amazon actually list any import fees/taxes for you. Does mean you can't try and sneak something through with them, though.

No taxes are showing at checkout, shipping for this pedal is $9. Not bad :-)

Anyone know of a decent source for this pedal (Revv G3), other than Thomann (expensive) or Reverb (everything seems to be + unknown amount for shipping).

Generally don't like pedals, especially "distortion" pedals - anything based on diode clipping sounds Awesome Random Samick Experience to my ears - but this pedal sounds awesome!

Ola makes any distortion pedal sound awesome, you should really get a Waza Metal Zone instead :mrgreen:

He does.



But I've also had over 30 years of experience in making distortiony things sound good, so can easily spot when something sounds good because it is good, rather than because it's been played through and recorded well.

He can make a Metal Zone sound great too, but that Revv is on another level.
