DISCOVER REAL AMP OVERDRIVE
When it comes to overdrive, nothing beats the sound of a vintage amp. RevivalDRIVE recreates a valve amp-style signal path in all-analogue electronics to provide realistic tonal response, touch-sensitive drive characteristics, and elusive ghosting overtones.
RevivalDRIVE’s two channels each deliver a wide range of British and American amp flavours, from clean to fully cranked. Intuitive controls let you go under the hood to tweak every aspect of the amplifier, from preamp shape to power amp breakup, even down to the sag and ripple of the HT supply.
With amp-like playing feel and realistic harmonics this may be the last overdrive pedal you will ever need.
- Two channels of authentic valve amp overdrive.
- Variable negative feedback to fine-tune breakup characteristics or boost presence.
- Unique Ghost control recreates the “ghost note” effect encountered when cranking certain vintage amps, subtly thickening up solos.
- Reactive overdrive design for realistic feel and authentic sound.
- Assignable mid-boost to cut through on stage.
- Comprehensive Re-amp EQ section to seamlessly match RevivalDRIVE to the rest of your rig.
- Tour grade, all metal construction.
- High-impedance buffered bypass with silent switching.
- Supports switcher system integration.
- Designed and built in England.
DISCOVER MORE ABOUT THE REVIVALDRIVE
TOUCH SENSITIVE SOUND
There is a tangible excitement to playing a valve amp at high volume. A direct link between your ears and fingers where every movement of the strings can be heard and felt. Soft, soulful touch or snarling pick attack, RevivalDRIVE brings these moments to life in a way no other pedal can.
Delivering sparkling cleans and thick crunch with all the sensitivity of a classic amp, RevivalDRIVE feels as inspiring as it sounds.
AMP-LIKE SIGNAL PATH
RevivalDRIVE contains a complete valve amp-style signal path with dedicated class-A preamp, a long-tailed pair phase inverter, and a push-pull output stage. Each block has been designed to reproduce not one, but many different amplifier sounds, putting incredible tone-shaping power at your disposal. Recreate your favourite vintage amps or get creative with new and exciting combinations.
SHAPE YOUR PREAMP VOICE
Amplifier tone starts with the preamp, and this stage can fundamentally re-shape your signal.
Select from a range of voicing and bright-cap options to configure RevivalDRIVE’s Class-A preamp stage. Use the LOWS control to tighten up the bottom end or push the bass into thick distortion.
REACTIVE DRIVE TECHNOLOGY
Origin Effects’ Reactive Drive Technology adds another level of realism, replicating the frequency-dependent effects of a loudspeaker on the non-linear performance of a valve power amp.
We’ve applied this to our push-pull high-voltage output stage, built with meticulously hand-selected discrete JFETS, to achieve sound quality unmatched by conventional pedal designs.
CLOSING THE LOOP
Take control of your distortion character with variable negative feedback.
The jangle and chime of the British Invasion? Edge-of-breakup picking dynamics? The presence and bite of a cranked full-stack?
RevivalDRIVE’s MORE/PRES knob has all bases covered, with a smooth continuous control that offers a world of character. Pair that with Origin Effects’ Reactive Drive Technology and you’ve got the most authentic valve power amp recreation available.
RECTIFIERS, SAG AND… GHOSTS
Have you experienced the other-worldly overtones of a cranked Twin or an early Plexi? The RevivalDRIVE range of pedals are the only pedals to recreate the subtle “ghosting” effect heard when these amps are pushed to the edge. These dissonant ghost notes are an interaction between your playing and the AC mains power, resulting from the rudimentary power supply circuits of early amplifiers.
RevivalDRIVE’s Valve and Silicon Rectifier channels, combined with our exclusive GHOST control, give you a huge tonal spectrum to explore. Turn up the GHOST knob and play up the neck for haunting lead tones. Get tight, modern chord definition from the Silicon channel, or switch to the Valve channel for increased sag and smooth, natural compression.
AMP MEETS PEDAL
How to match the ultimate amp-in-a-box pedal to your existing amplifier? RevivalDRIVE’s no-compromise Re-Amp EQ lets you tailor the pedal’s output to suit your amp, ensuring your clean AND overdrive tones always sound their best.
RevivalDRIVE even includes a touring-friendly Power Amp Mode for compatibility with flat-response power amplifiers, so you can keep the show on the road whatever happens.
BUILT FOR THE ROAD
Housed in a hand polished, brushed stainless steel enclosure and furnished with aluminium controls, Neutrik jack sockets and heavy-duty footswitch, the RevivalDRIVE CUSTOM is at home on the road as it is in the studio.
1.2 kg (2.65 lb)
160 × 118 × 65 mm (6.30 x 4.65 x 2.56 in)
Includes knobs and switches
9V DC 2.1 mm centre-negative
Please note: the RevivalDRIVE is powered by a mains adaptor only (not included). We’ve dispensed with the usual 9V battery option, both to save space and to allow us to adopt a high-current approach, yielding lower noise levels and superior tone.
Origin Effects pedals are designed to deliver impeccable performance using a range of power supplies. We recommend you only use a regulated power supply specifically designed for guitar pedal applications as power supplies which do not have sufficient internal filtering can result in unwanted noise.
We recommend the following power supplies for use with our pedals:
- Voodoo Labs Pedal Power series
- Cioks supplies
- Truetone 1 Spot Pro series
- Strymon Zuma
This product should only be operated at 9V. The design employs a voltage doubling circuit to achieve higher internal voltages for improved sonic performance.
Please note that local duties/customs/taxes may be applicable on the shipment to your country. These are not covered and you will be responsible for payment (if any). You may cancel your order any time by contacting us.
The Revival Drive is absolutely amazing and worth every penny. It works so well with single coils and humbuckers. I'm using it with a blackface tube amp, Torpedo CAB M, Native Instruments Guitar Rig and Positive Grid amp plugins. It really breaths life into my guitar sound. I use it as an always on pedal, Preamp/boost/EQ. I never play with it off.
Just a couple scenarios incase anyone's interested...
Drive pedals --> Revival Drive --> Preamp pedal --> Torpedo CAB M --> Modulation --> Mic Pre
Drive pedals --> Revival Drive --> Delay --> Blackface Amp --> Mic'd
I just received my Revival Drive Custom and extra foot switch the other day. I'm running it through an Orange Pedal Baby 100 power amp into an Orange 212 open back cab with v30's. I can't believe just how incredible this amp factory in a box this is. Just absolutely stunning sound. All my other dirt pedals I was using into my Orange AD30 (set 100% clean) are now being sold. The AD30 is getting sold. Believe the hype, the Revival is THAT GOOD. This thing will never ever leave my setup. I have made it the centerpiece of my board, and it's my whole sound essentially.
Can you withstand higher voltages? Let's say 18V。
I have just been floored. It rocks right out of the box.
I have the expanded custom eq and decided to putchase the recival footswitch. Its essentially multiple drives in one.
Switxhability alone we have at our toe tips tube rectifier tone with or without mid boost. Or smack your chops on silicon recto side with or without midboost. And viola, hit the blend switch. Customizable extra eq was well worth the extra dough. Couple of finer points: extrnal
Control with exp pedal of parameters and assignable switches for exp pedal would put this thing in outer space... And a midi configurable version would be really slick... i play a variety of live music so i like to avoid pedal tweaks mid set. Midi changes would be amazaballs!
I've been wanting something like this for ages. Tired of trying to deal with modeling and programming more than playing. This puppy reinvents the wheel! Overdrive sure but it's more like a preamp but even more like amp guts in a box that does it all.
There are just no bad tones on this pedal despite the rather vast array of options and switching mods. I freakin' love this thing!
Has made every other drive I have or have owed a mere toy.
Does such an array of amp sounds and feel with this amazing quality of tone containing everything that makes a great amp sound great. Mind boggling really.
Once you understand the various option switches it is really not complex to tweak in. I am constantly discovering new cool tones which not only sound and feel like an amp but I really never had a guitar amp that was this good.
I use mine on a power amp rig and just could not be more pleased with the results, bloody amazing!
Simon you're a genius, and thanks to the crew at Origin for this hand wired beauty of analog goodness.
The amp characteristics of this pedal are just beyond anything I imagined, from clean to outright Billy Gibbons Tweed dirt amp, all things Marshall and everything really. The way the low control wraps hair around the notes is something else. I've heard some complain about not clean enough but really learn the EQ options, vol and output and roll off the low control, it's all there. God what a design jewel this is!
Costly yes, but some things are worth the bucks compared to the countless other drives and amp mimic pedals out there. I thought I had the best and hand picked stuff, this wonder has just floored me. Get one, you will never regret it nor will you ever have anything that can compete with it!
