Valve Reaper


An eminently practical overdrive & distortion hybrid, purposely designed to deliver musical signal clipping across the entire frequency spectrum. 

Semper utilis!

The Valve Reaper employs a unique parallel gain structure that sweeps from a dynamically driven overdrive to a sweet sustaining distortion; in between you are destined to find your own holy grail of tone. Adjust the gain ratio according to taste and genre.


  • Unique gain and EQ topology
  • 18 volts (+/-9V) of boosted dynamic headroom
  • True mechanical bypass
  • Carefully selected MOSFET arrays
  • Active volume control
  • Premium quality components
  • Small batch assembly

The Reaper Rocks!
Written by Joe N on Jul 12th 2018

I am a 50-year-old guy that still wishes he would have learned to play in high school. Nevertheless, I am on the path now and purchased my first pedal: the Valve Reaper. Looked around for quite a while but could not find the right sound. The Reaper is it! No matter where the ratio knob sits it puts out a great sound. Order one today, thank me later...

Awesome Greenchild Valve Reaper
Written by Pat Walsh on May 7th 2018

I purchased the Greenchild Valve Reaper and WoW it is Awesome. It arrived 10 days after I ordered it (U.S.A. to Australia) Quick considering the distance.I couldn't wait to try it out and it has even exceeded My expectations. My main Amps are a VoxAC15HW (Alnico Blue) and Artist TweedTone 20watt Valve Amp(with 75watt Lorrantz Greenback Clone Speaker) The Valve Reaper is simple to use and has wide range of Tones and has an amazing effect on these Amps which were already sounding Great but are now really Singing and more Responsive. The Greenchild Valve Reaper is well worth the investment. Greenchild is also a Wonderful company to deal with.

Wow What a fantastic sounding pedal the OD side is a joy nice juicy overdrive that cleans up and gives crystal clear clarity and transparency with pure delight, and over to the distortition side well this is to my ear a fuzzy sounding distortion with bite that i really like and when mixed with the OD side using the ratio dial kicks butt.

Excellent build quality, very easy to find the right balance between overdrive and distortion. Each side sounds great on it's own, but having the ability to blend them is fantastic. Highly recommended
