Press Release – Halcyon Green Overdrive Product Release

Buckinghamshire, UK, 26th July 2022 9:00 BST– We are proud to release our Halcyon Green Overdrive pedal, featuring our new Adaptive circuitry. This unique design allows this simple pedal to adapt its voicing in response to pick attack and volume changes, making it possibly the most dynamic and interactive overdriveout there. Yes, we’ve taken the world’s favourite green pedal as a starting point, but this little box goes way beyond what the average overdrive has to offer. The Ibanez® Tube Screamer® is an all-time classic for a reason. Its mid-forward voicing, low-gain drive and a touch of clean signal make it a great choice for pushing an amp, allowing players to jump out of the mix for a solo. But turn down your guitar volume or play softly and that mid-pushed drive tone becomes a thin, nasal clean tone. It’s the “all or nothing” nature of classic drive pedals that has us stacking numerous pedals for various shades of saturation. But we have another solution…The Adapt switch allows this mid-forward voicing to gradually fade away as the pedal cleans up, giving you classic TS808 tone with your guitar cranked but revealing the full spectrum of your clean tone as you roll back the volume knob. Despite being our simplest pedal yet, we have included a generous helping of tweakability, with two Adapt settings, a Dry level control for adjusting the clean signal and a choice of voicings. With the ability to select either the classic TS808 mid hump or a brighter, more focused presence peak, even full-bore Metal players can reap the benefits of the Halcyon Green Overdrive when tightening up their high-gaintones. All these extra features also help this pedal towork as a standalone overdrive, relying far less on your amp’s tone than the original. Of course, all the sounds of the stock Tube Screamer® are available too, should you want them, recreated with Origin-level accuracy. In a world of clones, the Halcyon Green Overdrive takes a fresh look at an iconic design, giving this most trusted of tones a whole new level of playability. The Origin Effects Halcyon Green Overdrive is available now from Origin Effects dealers worldwide.
