Red Witch Reviews

The international reviews of the Red Witch range form a significant reason why anyone would invest in Red Witch. Red Witch, unsurprisingly, is very proud of the cumulative weight of outstanding product reviews.

These reviews demonstrate without equivocation the depth and quality of the Red Witch product range. 

Some are from the largest guitar magazines on the planet like Guitar Player, others from influencer stores like Pro Guitar Shop, which have accumulated tens of thousands of online views. 

Anyone wanting to understand what Red Witch is about should spend some time on this page.

This list is not comprehensive by any means.

It needs to be noted, that since Ben launched the first Red Witch Pedal in 2003, there has never been a single negative industry review about any Red Witch Pedal that Red Witch is aware of. This is an astonishing feat given that music and tone itself are subjective.

FACTOTUM

Because the Factotum has been designed from the ground up as a bass effect, you can be assured that the full spectrum of low end will remain intact. Like all of Red Witch's premium products, the Factotum is made from top-shelf components and features true bypass switching. - ProGuitarShop - Nov 2014

iGuitar Factotum Review - Issue 30 2015

There are many reasons to like this pedal and that's even before we plug it in. Though the company might not be the world's best known purveyor of FX, Red Witch has already garnered much love from some really big names (how do Sting and Andy Summers from Police,  Tool's, Justin Chancellor, John Mayer and Brent Mason grab you? They're just a few from the list!) so there's promise of good things to come.

Best Guitar Effects's Review's the Violetta 2014

Screen shot 2015-03-28 at 2.26.32 PM.png

"The Red Witch Violetta Delay is one of the best sounding analog-style, compact delay pedals. It’s got more style and class than most pedals. It offers plenty of control and longer delay times than most compact delay pedals in its price range. Most importantly, the Violetta Delay sounds awesome. It captures all the warmth and beauty of classic analog delays with a low price and convenient size that should help it find a place on many pedal boards. Looking for the best analog voiced delay pedal? The Red Witch Violetta Delay is tough to beat."

Premier Guitar Review Red Witch's Seven Sisters. December 27, 2011

The Verdict
"The Seven Sisters pedals are a pioneering innovation... The Sisters’ small size means they’ll find homes on cluttered boards, and they’re great for players who need an extra flavor without taking up too much space. Any gear freak can always find another 1 1/2" spot to jam in one of these gems, especially if they’ll last two weeks on the road before a recharge. Getting these pedals through the airport for a fly-in gig will be a breeze—no more bulky ATA flight cases for those one-off shows."

"The all-analog Red Witch Factotum is a fun pedal with a tremendous range of sounds. It’s extremely simple to use and doesn’t suffer from any low-end loss. It’ll cost you some bucks, but there’s nothing else on the market quite like it." - Premier Guitar Feb 2015

Base Player's Factotum Review - 2015

"With the Factotum, New Zealand’s Red Witch has successfully realized one of the most obvious marriages in a stompbox, combing overdrive and octave in a pedal with a medium-size footprint. Combined with the filter of your choice, it kills three birds with two stones."
