From Greer Amps:

Greer Amps expands the XFR line with a new offering! The Royal Velvet Class-A British Drive and Pre nails the feel and tone of two of Nick Greer’s favorite amps. Imagine a world in which a V*x 30 watter and a Greer Thunderbolt30 got together. In that world, you’d end up with a sound machine much like the Royal Velvet. This British drive and pre features the same transformer as the previously released, award winning SOMA63. After a year of working with this super versatile transformer, we have found a way to alter the feel of it by changing the “loading” of the transformer. This really brings the pedal to life, and makes it something truly unique in the space of drive pedals today. If you’re looking for that Class-A British grind with some chime on the top end, this beauty is what you need. The EQ is dialed in right between the AC and Thunderbolt30 tones, and the drive is oh so sweet. At 9 volts, you’ll get some grind and slight compression with the gain up and moderate output pickups. 18 volts provides more of a stiff feel, and more clean headroom with that British sparkle!

  • Classic British tone, drive, and grind!
  • Features a steel core transformer!
  • Can be used as a preamp, and takes drives amazingly well (stack it--it sounds great when it's stacked with other drives)!
  • True Bypass!
  • Uses 9-Volt battery or standard neg. center, 2.1mm power supply.
  • Built with top quality components
  • Lifetime Warranty to the original owner!

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts! If you have any questions, we’re here for you!
