Coming soon from Origin Effects: the RevivalDRIVE!
After several years of research and development, we are proud to announce our latest pedal â€“ the RevivalDRIVE.
Itâ€™s the first ever overdrive from Origin Effects â€“ and the first overdrive of its kind, ever! Thatâ€™s because the RevivalDRIVE houses a complete valve amp-style signal path recreated using all-analogue electronics. It accurately delivers a wide range of British and American amp tones, from clean to fully cranked, with the ability to dial in exactly the drive characteristics and dynamic response you desire.
The RevivalDRIVEâ€™s unique circuit design incorporates not only the preamp, phase inverter, power amp and rectifier stages, but also a synthesised mains power signal and a speaker-emulating reactive load. Because these stages behave and interact just like the real thing, the RevivalDRIVE is the first pedal capable of delivering true amp-like overdrive, power amp sag and the characteristic â€œghost tonesâ€ generated when cranking certain vintage amps.
Better still, weâ€™ve built in a range of EQ compensation features that let you fine-tune the output of RevivalDRIVE to suit a range of popular amps â€“ or even plug straight into a flat-response power amp.
As part of the new RevivalDRIVE range, weâ€™re also releasing the RevivalDRIVE CUSTOM. Designed for maximum versatility, the RevivalDRIVE CUSTOM features additional front-panel controls and a secondary EQ that will let you precisely match the pedal with almost any amplifier. For touring players, itâ€™s the ultimate fly-rig overdrive!
