    Got some in stock in the store I work at today and spent some time with the ProValve into a 65 amps London 1x12 combo.

    The London has virtually no gain and this ProValve lit that som bitch up!!!

    I normally dont like high gain pedals as most just blanket the amp over and kill the amp natural overtones.

    having that second channel for leads is a godsend, it is perfect.

    The ProValve added tons of gain and ACCENTED the natural tones of the amp. Its like adding 2 natural high gain channels to a clean amp. This one def seems suited for a totally clean amp. SO much can be done with the vol knob on the guitar.

    I absolutely fell in love with this one and will be gigging it soon. Pay deduct here we come. :banana

    Moved. As a dealer, you need to post such things in the appropriate area.

    I am curious how it sounds too. I love the older handwired COT50's and wonder how the PV differs.

    I had a customer come in today and was blown away with it. He said he had a Crunchbox that was now for sale after buying the ProValve. He cranked it thru a 65 London and ended up buying it. It really sounds like part of the amp. It just kills any other high gain pedal I have heard for a natural amp like high gain.
