Origin Effects RD Compact Hot Rod Overdrive Pedal

Compact overdrive pedal in the RevivaLDRIVE lineage featuring huge, hot-rodded amp tones in a smaller enclosure with more gain, more sustain and more aggression

MFR# RDC-HR

Product Description

The Origin Effects RD Compact Hot Rod is the latest in the RevivalDRIVE lineage and it packs huge, hot-rodded amp tones into a compact enclosure. Taking inspiration from the legendary amp techs of the 70s and 80s, Origin have taken our RevivalDRIVE Compact pedal and pushed it to its limits - more gain, more sustain and more aggression.

The RD Compact Hot Rod recreates the entire signal path of a classic, modified valve amp using all-analogue transistor circuitry, right down to the push-pull output stage and specially designed power supply which introduces just the right amount of “sag”. This super-realistic pedal not only replicates the sounds but also the dynamics and feel of coveted hot-rodded amps.

FEATURES:

  • Unabridged valve amp-style signal path recreated in all-analog electronics
  • Class A preamp stage with realistic, “hot-rodded” amp gain-staging
  • Full control of tone, dynamic response and distortion characteristics
  • Wide gain range, from clean to full-on saturation
  • Powerful Post-Drive EQ tailors the pedal’s voicing to suit any amp
  • Premium components throughout
  • Designed and built in England

CONTROLS:

  • GAIN: Like the Volume knob on a non-master volume amp – increasing the GAIN will gradually increase overdrive in the emulated amp circuit
  • OUTPUT: Simply an output level control – this will not affect the tone or overdrive of the pedal
  • MORE/PRES: Alters negative feedback in the emulated amp circuit, affecting not only the presence and brightness but also the transition into overdrive
  • HIGHS: Adjusts the Treble and Mids in the emulated amp circuit - this will affect the tone and the character of the overdrive; fully counterclockwise, this control emulates the sound of a Marshall with its tone controls set flat; sweeping to 12 o’clock gives you a cranked, hot-rodded Plexi, through to a cranked Fender-style tone with the HIGHS knob fully clockwise
  • LOWS: Adjusts the Bass in the emulated amp circuit - this will affect the tone and character of the overdrive; high settings will result in a thick, raspy overdrive tone with a more vintage character; ;ow settings will be tight and defined, like a classic hot-rodded Plexi
  • BLEND: Turning the control counter-clockwise from maximum will begin to introduce some of your clean guitar signal; as highly overdriven sounds don’t blend too well with clean tones, the BLEND control also reduces gain in the pedal as the clean signal is blended in
  • POST-DRIVE EQ: This innovative output filter tailors the sound of the RD Compact Hot Rod to suit any amp; choose from three filter settings, then fine tune to exactly match your rig with the Adjust control

CONNECTIONS

The RD Compact Hot Rod has a high impedance input and its output level will suit typical amp inputs, power amp inputs and line inputs. Power using a 9VDC 2.1mm centre-negative adapter delivering at least 100 mA. Voltage rails are increased internally for high headroom.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

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.
