Sam "Bam" Koltun is a Los Angeles based musician, guitar player, and song writer. Currently playing for the groups Dorothy, Faster Pussycat, Budderside, & more.
Born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, Sam first picked up the guitar when he was 10 years old. By the age of 12 he was playing the local clubs in his hometown, and by age 15 he was playing out 5 to 6 nights a week.
Sam moved to Los Angeles in 2013 to attend Musicians Institute- on two scholarships. He completed his Bachelor’s Degree while touring the country with various bands. Sam likes long walks on the beach, peanut butter, & Jurassic Park.
"I received a Revv G2 pedal from Hoogie at a festival show I was playing on tour with Dorothy. First of all, very kind and generous of Hoogie. I had heard about the Revv brand through social media- and as an “all things guitar & gear” fanatic, my excitement is heightened with new gear, especially a new pedal!
I added the G2 into the rig almost immediately- using the pedal in the Dorothy band scenario as an extra push (Level around 8 or 9 and gain around 1) in multiple spots in the show. There are a lot of dynamics in the current live arrangements of Dorothy’s songs, so having a third option to push the clean tone, or the semi dirty tone, or the super dirty has been very helpful. It plays with my other drive pedals great as well. It’s been in my Dorothy rig ever since and very much look forward to using it live with Faster Pussycat & Budderside as well. The G2 has already found its way onto a couple tracks for both FP & Budderside in the studio as well. Happy to be a part of the Revv fam!"
