The Guyatone SV2 “Slow Volume” is a unique pedal for electric guitar. It’s an auto volume swell pedal, which isn’t something too many pedal manufacturers are making. It’s got your basic pedal characteristics with ¼” connections for input and output and require 9 volts of power from a battery (or power supply). It’s of course not rackable since it’s engaged with your foot.


It’s really easy to set the controls for the Guyatone SV2. Getting all of the sounds you want from it at the right times will definitely take some practice, but still since it’s only got two knobs, it’s not exactly rocket science. These parameters are for output level and input/threshold. It’s tough to explain how these effect the swells but it’s fairly simple once you play with it for a minute to see what each does. No manual is necessary.


What the Guyatone SV2 does for your sound is definitely something that will interest many guitarists out there. If you’re not a fan or not able to do volume swells with the volume pot on your guitar or a designated volume foot pedal, this can help you achieve that same sound with simpler controls. It’s great for electric guitar, but I’d still recommend using a traditional volume pedal for a lap or pedal steel, although this can definitely be cool in addition.


The Guyatone SV2 is a very cool pedal for those interested in volume swells. It comes from a reliable place in Guyatone and is unique for how it’s made up. It’s definitely worth a look for those who want to do easier swells and maybe not have to think about using your picking hand to control it. Even if you do like doing that too, this can be beneficial to you to get some new sounds in that vein. Either way, it’s definitely fun to play with!
