Kernom Ridge Augmented Overdrive Pedal

Augmented overdrive pedal with MIDI featuring groundbreaking clipping control technology to combine best in class sound to unparalleled flexibility and expressivity

MFR# Ridge

Product Description

The Kernom Ridge Augmented Overdrive Pedal new kind of analog overdrive pedal, using a groundbreaking clipping control technology to combine best in class sound to unparalleled flexibility and expressivity. Its revolutionary interface allows users to shape the clipping flavor and personality of the pedal in an infinite number of ways and to control it via MIDI or with an expression pedal.


Kernom invented Analog Morphing Core, a new and unique patent-pending approach to electronic clipping circuits. It controls the nonlinear elements of the clipping stage (traditionally diodes) by changing in real time their threshold, making them behave like a new kind of diode. Use the MOOD KNOB to select the personality of the pedal, from the ultimate clean boost to a fully compressed and characterful overdriven sound.


The Ridge was designed with expressivity and creativity in mind as main focus points, to help musicians write the next page in the history of music. Kernom added an expression input, internal preset and full MIDI compatibility to the extraordinarily versatile electronic architecture of the Ridge. The result is an inspiration machine, capable of both summoning the most classic sounds and taking the musician to new unexplored sound territories.


The iconic design of the Ridge pedal takes its roots in the architectural design language of modernism. The casing has a strong personality and timeless feel. It is built out of 5mm thick touring ready aluminum and is virtually indestructible, to last a lifetime of inspiration. The electronic heart of the product is meticulously manufactured in a state of the art electronics factory, located in France. This factory also works with clients in the medical industry, a field where there is no room for error or approximation.

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
