2009 Guitar Player Magazine Editor's Pick Award.
Lovepedal originally made just 100 ProValve pedals. Little did the company know that guitar player magazine would award the effect pedal with an editors pick award! After many months of consideration Lovepedal decided to produce the ProValve 2 Dual Distortion guitar effects pedal.
The bluesy side of the Lovepedal ProValve 2, the distortion pedal features 2 foot-switchable gain settings delivers incredibly realistic amp-like characteristics and dynamics. The distortion level goes from bluesy lows to all-out shreddage. With the 2 channels, the Lovepedal ProValve 2 distortion pedal gives you 2 different settings, from clean crunch to tweaked-out metal mayhem, all with a simple click of the A/B footswitch.
The Lovepedal ProValve2 pedal gives you the option of having two levels of distortion set that you can switch back and forth between, like having a multi-channel amp for a lot less price.

I bought this pedal because I thought it was awesome. I compared it to a couple of overdrive pedals, including the T-Red Moller overdrive. The only reason I bought this instead of the T-Rex is because of the price.At first I really liked this pedal. It sounded thick and meaty with a lot of gain on tap. It does a lot to fatten up single coil guitars. However, the thickness of this pedal can be too much.With humbuckers, I started wishing I could reduce the amount of thickness. It starts getting too muddy because you don't have enough control of the EQ. To the right adds presence, to the left gets dark and bassy.Another thing I started hating about it is that the response and feel is off. It doesn't respond to your pick attack the same way many other boutique pedals do. I get the best response and feel from Maxon overdrives. This one is just off and I don't like how it responds through my tube amp.It's a good sounding pedal. It's warm and is excellent for single coil guitars, but I wouldn't recommend it for humbuckers because it's too thick and muddy.There's kind of no use even using the level or gain knob past 12:00. The level knob gets too loud very quickly. The gain knob gets very gainy but does not maintain clarity. It's too thick.It could be a better pedal, but some improvements need to be made.
This pedal sounds as good or better than the lead channel on pretty much all of my amps. Really. I also have an Eternity and a couple of Lovepedal fuzz tones. One of the odd, and very useful qualities of these pedals is that, unlike most dirt boxes, the overall output vol. of the pedal barely goes up as you increase the gain. There is plenty of output level to be had if you want it, but don't get hung up on the fact that there is only one output volume control. I run ch A at the lowest setting and ch B at about 75% and the output volume is almost the same. This pedal sounds amazing. You can back off on your guitar volume and it cleans up just like an amp, with no mud.
