Origin Effects have made quite the dent on the Pedal Industry since its inception in 2012. Beginning with the Cali76 compressor; A faithful recreation of the Famous 1176 studio Compressor (in pedal form!), the Origin Team then moved to Guitar and Bass Preamps, capable of recreating the feel and sound of vintage tube amps, right down to the smallest details - without unreliability and inconvenience of tubes. Now, with their first "traditional" Guitar pedal, they have tackled the daunting "Tube Screamer Question": What can you do that no one has done before?

While the Tube Screamer is with out a doubt the most popular pedal to have ever existed, it doesn't come with out its flaws. The thick gnarly midrange can balance one amp while making another muddy and uninspiring. And the way the diodes clip can be overpowered by compression, forcing majority of users to sit below that halfway point on the gain control. The Halcyon counters this hinderance by making use of Origin's Adaptive Circuitry. This provides an incredible touch sensitivity to the dynamics; pushing the midrange further forward the more you dig in. The adaptive circuitry also allows for a stunning clean up with the guitars volume control which is unheard of in a Tube Screamer. This along with its MOD Circuit fixes the midrange issue by shifting it up for more clarity making this the most inspiring TS pedal I have played to date.

Here is what Origin effects have to say about the Halcyon Green Overdrive:

"The Halcyon Green Overdrive is the first pedal to feature our new Adaptive circuitry. This unique design allows this simple pedal to adapt its voicing in response to pick attack and volume changes, making it one of the most dynamic and interactive overdrives out there. Yes, we’ve used the Ibanez® TS808 Tube Screamer® as a starting point, but this pedal is much more than just another clone. The Tube Screamer® is an all-time classic for a reason. Its mid-forward voicing, low-gain drive and a touch of clean signal make it a great choice for pushing an amp, allowing players to jump out of the mix for a solo. But turn down your guitar volume or play softly and that mid-pushed drive tone becomes a thin, nasal clean tone. It’s the “all or nothing” nature of classic drive pedals that has us stacking numerous pedals for various shades of saturation.

Our ADAPT switch allows this mid-forward voicing to gradually fade away as the pedal cleans up, giving you classic TS808 tone with your guitar cranked but revealing the full spectrum of your clean tone as you roll back the volume knob. Essentially, you can vary how “on” the pedal is by adjusting your guitar volume or playing dynamics. Despite being our simplest pedal yet, there are still plenty of features beyond those of the original pedal, with two ADAPT settings, a DRY level control for adjusting the clean signal and a choice of VOICE settings. Select 808 for the classic TS808 mid hump or MOD for a brighter, more focused presence peak, which works great when tightening up high-gain tones or adding extra bite to humbuckers. Of course, all the sounds of the stock TS808 are available too, should you want them, recreated with Origin-level accuracy."
