Strymon Riverside Multistage Drive

Custom cascading multistage distortion topology providing a wide range of tube-inspired drive tones
MFR# Z12A-RIVR

Product Description

Big tube overdrive in a small package

The Strymon Riverside Multistage Overdrive pedal offers a wide variety of tones from silky smooth, to shredder distortion, and everything in between. With up to 20 dB of added gain, Riverside will really bring your rig to life.

Riverside is designed in a simple, yet powerful design. On the top left we have two selectable drive circuits, High, and Low. This is the starting point of how the gain control will react, turning the gain control clockwise will begin to add more drive, the precision crafted DSP generates dynamic complexity and pleasing harmonics at every stage. On the top right, there is a boost circuit built in, with the options of Normal, and Mid. On the normal selection, it acts as a clean boost, where the “Mid” selection will set priority to the mid-range frequencies, allowing you to get more punch and grit. For even more customization, a three band EQ has been added with Low, Mid, and High controls. The rear panel three-position Presence switch applies to the Treble EQ band, allowing Riverside to integrate perfectly with any amp or setup, no matter how dark or bright.

Features:

  • Custom cascading multistage distortion topology provides a wide range of tube-inspired drive tones
  • Digitally controlled analog class A JFET input gain stage maximizes headroom while adding up to 20 dB of pure analog gain
  • Precision crafted DSP gain stages provide detailed complexity and responsiveness
  • Low gain channel for smooth classic overdrive
  • High gain channel for modern saturated distortion
  • 3-band EQ with independent Bass, Middle and Treble controls
  • Selectable post-analog gain mid-band EQ push
  • Presence switch to tailor the sound for use with all amplifiers from dark to bright
  • Optional variable-threshold noise reduction helps tame noisy guitar pickups

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!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

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.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

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.
Michael D.
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.
