We are Marshall.
Originally released in 1988, The Guv’nor was the first pedal that squeezed Marshall’s ‘big black box’ sound into a ‘little black box’. Fast forward to the present day and now this vintage reissue is here to do it all over again.
Today the original Drivemaster pedals are sought after collectors’ items, but they’re too good to hide away. So now it’s back. This accurate reproduction lovingly follows the exact specification of the original, rebuilt for today’s guitarist. It’s been hand-built in the very same factory that has been building Marshall amplifiers for over sixty years.
We’ve brought back a replica of the pedal that's appeared in the collections of revered guitarists' rigs worldwide. Capable of providing subtle boosts, clear headroom and bags of character, rediscover the sounds of the late 90’s and 00’s.
Delivering new levels of distortion, the original Shredmaster appeared on numerous tracks in the late 90's. After this, demand soared for the Shredmaster's distinct, thrashy sound but the pedal remained difficult to get hold of. Thanks to this authentic and faithful reissue, that’s no longer a problem.
