Origin Effects RevivalDRIVE Compact Overdrive Pedal

Origin's stunning overdrive workhorse gets the compact treatment!

Written by

UK-based Origin Effects release some of the most popular and critically-acclaimed compressor pedals on the market, used by countless players from David Gilmour to Biffy Clyro's Simon Neil - and everyone in between!

With their RevivalDRIVE, they demonstrated their tonal prowess by cramming classic British amp response into a dynamic stompbox. Now, the RevivalDRIVE has been given the compact treatment; streamlined controls, silent switching, and exactly the same stunning tones.

Key Features

  • Ultra-high input impedance
  • Silent switching
  • High-quality “signal-conditioning” bypass mode
  • High-current, low-noise electronics
  • Premium components throughout
  • Advanced power supply filtering and protection
  • Runs off standard 9VDC adaptor
  • Designed and built in England

Here’s what Origin Effects says about the RevivalDRIVE Compact:

The RevivalDRIVE Compact is a versatile overdrive that captures the authentic tone, feel and response of a range of classic non-master volume valve amps. Inside, it houses an unabridged valve amp signal path recreated in analogue electronics, including the preamp, phase inverter, push-pull power amp and rectifier stages plus a speaker-emulating reactive load.

By altering the way these stages behave and interact, the RevivalDRIVE Compact’s user-friendly controls provide instant access to a wealth of British and American amp voicings, from clean to fully cranked, while powerful EQ compensation controls will make sure it sounds great with a wide variety of amps.


  • Gain: sets the amount of overdrive;
  • Output: sets the overall output level;
  • Blend: adjusts mix from 100% overdrive to 100% dry (clean boost), simultaneously adjusting gain to maintain a musical blend of clean and overdriven signals;
  • Lows: controls the overdrive’s low-frequency characteristics, from fat and fuzzy Tweed-style distortion to tight and defined British drive;
  • Highs: provides continuous adjustment through a range of classic Fender- and Marshall-style preamp voicings, progressively increasing mids and highs;
  • More/Pres (clockwise): above 12 o’clock, functions like the classic Marshall Presence knob, releasing high frequencies from the effects of negative feedback;
  • More/Pres (counter-clockwise): below 12 o’clock, progressively reduces negative feedback around the power amp, increasing gain and altering the pedal’s transition from clean to overdriven in response to playing dynamics;
  • Post-Drive EQ: three preset EQ curves (flat power amp, Fender Blackface, Marshall) and a continuously adjustable filter adapt the pedal’s output to suit your clean amp settings.
