Product Description

The Kernom Ridge is the world's first augmented overdrive, boasting an unlimited number of 100% pure analogue clipping options in one circuit. Built on Kernom's unique patented "Analog Morphing Core" technology, the Ridge features powerful pre and post clipping EQ sections and full MIDI compatibility, giving it all the potential to replace any number of different overdrive pedals in your rig! From transparent clean boosts, to mid-punchy "screamer" style overdrives, thick, chewy fuzzes to searing high gains, the Kernom Ridge can do it all with devastating accuracy. Think of it like an amp modeller, only for your overdrive pedals!

The secret to the Ridge's infinite drive options lies in its "Mood" knob, a powerful control that drastically alters the clipping style of the overdrive. Whether you prefer symmetrical, asymmetrical, high headroom or heavily compressed clipping, the Ridge is a never-ending journey through overdrive flavours! Turning the "Mood" knob from left to right unlocks the following overdrive options:

  1. Very clean and open sound, zero to light, soft clipping
  2. Transparent and highly dynamic overdrive
  3. More pronounced, coloured overdrive
  4. High gain monster
  5. Almost fuzz like, characterful sound

The Ridge's Chameleon EQ section puts a host of tone tweaking options at your fingertips, letting you chose between complete transparency at any gain setting, and colouring your sound to suit your playing. The "Pre" knob determines how Ridge interacts with your amp while the "Post" knob controls how much you cut through or sit in the mix. And if all of that wasn't enough, the Ridge has the capacity to store a heap of presets, accessible via MIDI! Simply plug in an external MIDI switcher to save and recall up to 128 of your favourite presets to cover all of your overdrive needs. Take things even further by connecting an external controller and change the Ridge's internal parameters in real time! The possibilities really are endless!

A pedal with a learning curve. Massive potential but be aware that its full potential can only be reached using midi and an expression pedal. However, it is hugely flexible right out of the box.

Fantastic piece of kit - replaced all of my overdrives! It’s even kicked my trusty Keeley D&M Drive off my main board. Can’t wait to get the MIDI set up with my GigRig G3.

Having a few issues integrating it into my rig but it's a quality piece of kit. Very flexible but maybe a bit beyond my midi skills as I'm totally new to it. I'm keeping it for year at least to see if I can mesh it with my other pedals or replace them all.

Gets every shade of tone I love from clean and crispy with a hind of crunch when digging in, to smooth or gritty distortion. My midi to trs just arrived so yet to try it’s midi functionality

Still figuring the Kenom Ridge out, but I've already been able to duplicate most of my other pedals.
