ORIGIN EFFECTS Brings The Old School Metal With Their New Overdrive Pedal

Everyone has a classic heavy metal or retro hard rock stoner-tinged band right now. It’s what you do these days. Though not everyone has the best tone, and Origin Effects is here to help you fix that with their new RevivalDRIVE Compact Hot Rod Overdrive Pedal.


The RevivalDRIVE Compact Hot Rod Overdrive Pedal recreates the entire signal path of a classic, modified valve amp using all-analog circuitry, giving you both the sounds and the dynamics of some old school, hot-rodded amps.

The pedal features variable negative feedback to fine-tune breakup characteristics or boost presence, a reactive overdrive design to simulate interaction between amp and speaker, power supply sag simulation, and full control over the tone and dynamic response of the pedal overall. Basically, you’re buying an amplifier without actually buying an amplifier.

I offers preamp voicing, break-up characteristics and low-frequency distortion controls, as well as Post-Drive EQ to tailor your sound to work with just about any amp, as well as flat-response power amps, FX loop returns, mixers, and recording interfaces.

The RevivalDRIVE Compact Hot Rod Overdrive Pedal is available for $390.
