Below are some excerpts from a review by gear department editor Krzysztof Blas:

“If you want to achieve the sound of hard rock and heavy metal bands from the 80’s, Xvive Golden Brownie can bring them back to life. A small box with big tone.”

“Xvive Tube Squasher is an interesting effect worth having even as an add-on to your regular setup.”

“Xvive Undulator is a classic tremolo effect which can be run in mono as well as in stereo mode. If you are a fan of analog effects, this one can be a great alternative to more expensive units.”

“If you are looking for effects that sound a little bit different from their rivals, while offering a wide range of tones, check out the Xvive pedals – provided you can find them among all those big and heavy stompboxes of the competition…”
