**LIMITED BLACK EDITION FOR BLACK FRIDAY 2023**

 

Origin quite simply blew us away with their last release, the Halcyon, featuring their all new adaptive circuitry; allowing a natural interaction between the pedal and your guitars volume control or playing dynamics. So when we heard another pedal was being added to the line up, utilising the same adaptive circuitry - we were wetting ourselves with anticipation. 

The  M-EQ is a super unique overdrive or Boost pedal, and a great utility for notching yourself into a mix or cutting through for solos. Like most of the other origin pedals, the M-EQ has its roots strongly ingrained in the studio with a Pultec style Midrange equaliser at the centre of its character amongst a Cut (LPF) and drive control - Its a boost like you’ve never heard. 

With its organic grit, 3 set frequencies to boost and enough output to make your nan cry, its an incredible stand alone pedal. But It also does an excellent job at pushing other pedals or amps, as well as shaping your favourite fuzz pedal to suit what ever context it is being used. 

About the M-EQ Driver

The M-EQ DRIVER is a mid booster & drive pedal, based on a vintage Pultec® studio EQ. This unique pedal offers a range of mid-focused tones, from a subtle mid boost to thick, resonant overdrive and features the Adaptive Circuitry recently introduced on our Halcyon Green Overdrive. The M-EQ Driver is a pedal with a character all of its own and offers a new flavour of mid boost and drive. Still sought after today, the passive Pultec® EQs of the 1950s can be heard on thousands of hit records thanks to their highly musical, versatile EQ curves and the ability to overdrive their push-pull output stage. Rather than an exact replica, we have chosen to reimagine this classic piece of studio gear as a guitar-oriented, compact pedal, with a harmonically rich, transformer equipped circuit recreating the sonic footprint of the original.


A choice of three mid-range frequencies ensures that you can boost just the right part of your guitar signal and, when pushed harder, can elicit a range of saturation from a classic “mid-hump” overdrive to fierce “cocked wah” distortion. Thanks to the Adaptive Circuitry, the high-end roll-off of the Cut control is reduced as the pedal cleans up. This allows for a smooth transition from warm overdrive to bright clean tones in response to playing dynamics or guitar volume knob changes.

Built in the UK to the highest standards
