    Just soooo much goodness here taking this pedal to another level! The post EQ controls are brilliant. And in addition to what I mentioned previously about the HIGHS knob, the Blend knob also has something cool going on: The BLEND control works slightly differently to the RD by simultaneously lowering the pedal's gain - it allows really usable blended sounds to be quickly dialled in by just turning the BLEND control.

    I gotta say it looks interesting!! The original it's too much for me, this one on the other hand, I'm curious, also, after using cali76, origin is definitely on my radar.

    That’s really fascinating about the blend control. I’ve never really liked blend knobs on drive pedals so I’m really interested to try this now.

    I hope not. That's not enough of a margin to make it more accessible than the full-size.

    Unless my currency conversion is wrong, that’s what I came up with based on a listing for pre-orders. In using another conversion chart, I did come up with another price based on today’s currency exchange of $385 USD.

    Next up, looking out for the demos. Hoping to see one by TGPer @SimonGotthelf for sure!

    I heard it at NAMM the first day and know how great it sounds. :):phones

    Just realized this has the ADJ control as well. On the RD Custom this knob adjusts the Marshall voice of EQ2. Its not on the regular RD I don’t think. So they’ve added that functionality to the pedal which is really nice.

    The choice of knob color seems kinda confusing. On the RD, the orange/golden knobs control the valve rec side. In the other RD compact thread a couple of months ago though it was stated that the RDC is actually related to the si rec side of the RC.
    The pedal looks great with those knobs.

    Same here. Their Revival Drive Just has wayyy too much going on for my preferences (I prefer NMV amps with just a few knobs as an example). I picked up a Cali76 SE and have been super impressed with everything about it. The Compact Revival Drive is def on my radar now.

    The compact revival drive is the valve side of the bigger pedal, hence the orange knobs I’m guessing.

    Looking back at the original old threads, one member said it was based off the Si side, but there was no indication of where that info came from. I watched the multiple vids with Simon being interviewed at NAMM, and he was never asked about it from what I saw and he never commented on it.

    I'm sure @Origin Effects Ltd will reveal all to us :)

    I think I read the description of it being based on the valve side on that NOTOM link at the top of the page, but the link is dead now, so maybe they got it wrong and have taken it down. I'm sure the guys at Origin will clear it up at some stage.

    Their first demo introduction of the compact drive sounds promising. Must not give in.
