The RevivalDRIVE is the first overdrive pedal from Origin Effects, the creators of the game-changing Cali76 and SlideRIG compressors. For these pedals, Origin took the legendary Urei 1176 as their inspiration. By following the same analogue circuit topology but adapting the design and components to work in a pedal format, they managed to deliver the sound and response of this classic studio compressor in a stompbox.
For the RevivalDRIVE, they’ve applied the same approach to overdrive. But rather than look at other effects, they’ve gone straight to the source of great overdriven tone – the vintage non-master-volume valve amps of the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s.
The RevivalDRIVE houses an unabridged valve amp-style signal path, including the preamp, phase inverter, power amp and rectifier stages, a synthesised mains power signal and a speaker-emulating reactive load.
The footswitchable Valve Rectifier and Silicon Rectifier channels feature a comprehensive array of controls that let you adjust gain, preamp voicing, low-end distortion, presence and clean-to-overdriven break-up characteristics. You can also set how much of the ghosting effect you want and tweak power amp sag characteristics. The pedal features a fully variable, switchable mid-range boost, as well as a blend control that can be used to mix the dry and overdriven signals together.
The RevivalDRIVE also boasts clever EQ compensation features so that the player can adapt the pedal’s output to suit their amp of choice, or even plug straight into a PA or flat-response power amp.
The RevivalDRIVE CUSTOM takes this concept even further, adding extra EQ and filter controls that let you fine-tune the pedal to match almost any amplifier. 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, it’s the ultimate fly-rig overdrive!

Why was my package refused?
There are a number of reasons your package could be refused by us, including:
I wondered about the validity of hype around this pedal. It has so many **** and switches, it seems like a practical joke! After owning it for a couple of weeks and really burning it, I must say, it's extraordinary. The array of beautiful gain tones available in this pedal are staggering. With the addition of it's proprietary foot switch, it should be the ONLY gain pedal you will ever need. Even if never used for gigs, it's indisputable for studio use. I own the RevivalDRIVE Compact and RevivalTREM, as well. The Compact is fantastic, especially for it's size. This CUSTOM model, however, is on another level (The RevivalTREM has it's own unique gain structure and is gorgeous-sounding). YES, the RevivalDRIVE CUSTOM is EXPENSIVE, but, it's worth every cent.
This is a very complex pedal. More of an amp(s) in a box (Marshall, Vox & Fender) than an overdrive with in depth settings to set it up on a variety of amps. Excellent tones right out of the box, but gets even better the more you spend time tweaking it. It is not for those who want a simple few **** to adjust and done. It is for those who take their time and adjust it for the amp you are using. Excellent pedal, and to me, well worth the price.
The controls get much simpler to understand and the tones easier to tweak in. Nothing but a series of actual amplifiers sounds like this pedal. Once you learn the switches and what does what it just gets more impressive, first mistake many make is start adjusting things like tone controls on a OD pedal, really is much more than that. I have seen a lot of mistakes done in videos and they can't seem to get the tones they are after because they do not understand how it is designed. For example "lows" is not merely adding low end EQ but adds a warm fuzz wrap around the low end notes, the "more" and "presence" control alters how the amp circuit clips and distorts just like various amps behave.
Marvelous thought went into this pedal and it is so much more than a mere "drive". I just dig it and will simply never part w it as there is nothing that comes close to the real amp and behavior it has. Might be too expensive for some but if you have an eye for the finer things in life and realize something costing a fraction is just not doing to do what this does. Sort of like a Corvette to a Fiesta.
Great price and service ! This is the second item I have purchased from Prymaxe and would not hesitate to buy from them again !
One Word Awesome!
