Marshall The Guv’nor Overdrive/Distortion Pedal
Overdrive/Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal with 3-band EQ and Effects Loop
The Original Marshall Amp-in-a-box Pedal is Back!
Back in 1988, Marshall debuted The Guv’nor, the original British amp-in-a-box pedal that set the bar for all distortion pedals that followed. Marshall is reissuing this venerated stompbox to commemorate the company’s 60th anniversary. The rebooted pedal offers a direct, one-to-one copy of the original, right down to the iconic graphics, robust metal construction, and individually colored control knobs. Most importantly, this reissue delivers the same growling, snarling bite as its predecessor. If you want to put the sound of a cranked JCM800 on your pedalboard, The Guv’nor is the right tool for the job. This effects pedal boasts a familiar control set, with a flexible 3-band EQ, plus Gain and Level knobs, for dialing in your sound. You also get an effects loop, a standard footswitch, and a red LED status indicator. There’s a reason why players scour the Internet looking for ’80s-era The Guv’nor stompboxes. At the time of its release, and still to this day, it’s the final word on British-style amp-in-a-box pedals.
The return of a late ’80s legend
The Guv’nor reissue isn’t just inspired by the original pedal, it’s an exact copy of the original pedal. It includes the original’s black-and-red color scheme, the iconic white “Marshall” and “The Guv’nor” scripts, and individually colored control knobs. And the black metal enclosure is so much like the original — be careful, you can still cut yourself on the sharp front corners of the pedal, like so many guitarists did back in ’88! If you missed out on The Guv’nor the first time around, stop living in regret. Get your hands on this brand-spanking-new reissue, and revel in authentic cranked-British-stack guitar tones.
A cranked Marshall stack to govern your pedalboard
Marshall’s The Guv’nor was a game changer at the time of its late-’80s release. For the first time, players achieved authentic British tones using a stompbox. But does the reissue deliver the goods? Well, the guitarists here certainly believe so. Once we plugged into The Guv’nor, we couldn’t get enough. It simply oozes with the dimed-JCM800 tones that haunt every Marshall aficionado’s dreams. Want to nail Gary Moore’s Still Got the Blues sound? The Guv’nor does all that and more. With a 3-band EQ, plus Gain and Level knobs on tap, you’ll find that dialing in your idealized hard rock crunch is a breeze.
Loads of pedalboard-ready features
The Guv’nor is tailor-made for modern pedalboards. For starters, it includes an effects loop on a single 1/4-inch TRS jack. Just add external effects via a “Y” TRS insert cable, and you’ll be in business. You also get 1/4-inch input and output jacks for integrating The Guv’nor with your effects chain. The pedal’s standard footswitch not only engages and disengages the distortion effect, but also deploys and bypasses its built-in effects loop. This stompbox’s red LED status indicator is easy to see on a dark stage. Finally, The Guv’nor can operate on either a 9V battery or 9V DC power.
