Maker: Origin Effects
Origin Effects RevivalDRIVE is overflowing with the most beloved and sought-after overdriven amp tones from the '50s, '60s, and '70s. But this is no digital emulation. RevivalDRIVE uses real circuit topology to replicate the breakup characteristics, sag, and ghosting of classic American and British amps. For tone chasers, it’s a veritable dream machine, giving you access to limitless tones. And it’s designed to provide those brutal dimed-amp sounds at neighbor-friendly volumes, without any sonic sacrifice. RevivalDRIVE offers valve and silicon rectifier channels so that you can experiment with different combinations of power amp sag, from syrupy slow tube sag to snappy solid-state rectification. To hammer home its authentic sound, the RevivalDRIVE contains a built-in reactive load so that it responds to dynamics just like the real thing would, with the touch sensitivity and harmonic tone generation that make old-school amp overdrive sound so sweet. Guitarists know you can never have enough flavors of overdrive, and Origin Effects RevivalDRIVE puts an amp room’s worth of world-class amp overdrive right at your feet.
RevivalDRIVE's simple but robust control section makes dialing up your favorite tones a breeze. Control how and when RevivalDRIVE breaks up with the Volume knob, just like on a non-master-volume amp. The Bass control lets you select the amount of low frequencies that get fed into the drive. Let them all in for some wild and wooly OD or trim them back to tighten and focus your tone. Use RevivalDRIVE’s ample controls to enhance presence, tailor your mids, and select from the preamp behavior characteristics of the all-time great American and British guitar amps. And it includes a re-amp EQ so that the pedal pairs perfectly with your amp for the best possible tone.
Much of the magic imparted by vintage amps derives from their slight yet musical imperfections, such as sag and ghosting. Sag refers to when the power supply voltage drops when it gets hit with a large transient signal, which creates a natural compression effect and contributes to the dynamic feel of vintage-style amps. Ghosting, also referred to as double tones, is when a slightly darker and often atonal note follows what you play that’s created by the amp’s rectifier during power conversion. On paper, sag and ghosting are technically design flaws. However, without them, a vintage amp loses a lot of its charm. RevivalDRIVE gives you total control over how much or how little sag or ghosting you add into the signal, to strike the perfect balance of clarity and character.
