A 60th anniversary reissue of the classic distortion pedal.

Named after Jim Marshall himself, the original Guv’nor pedal was released in 1988, and set the bar for the generations of distortion pedals that have followed since. This 60th anniversary reissue faithfully recreates the classic sound of The Guv’nor, providing a smooth overdriven sound with a touch of compression. The pedal is housed in a casing that is accurately modeled on the design of the original, from the unique shape right down to the individually colored control knobs.
