Just like the RevivalDRIVE, the RevivalDRIVE Compact is all about real amp overdrive. By replicating every stage of a valve amp’s signal path using all-analogue components, with discrete transistor-based circuitry standing in for the valves, the RevivalDRIVE Compact delivers stunningly realistic tone, feel and dynamic response, ranging from clean to fully cranked.

The simplified control set allows you to directly shape key properties like preamp voicing, break-up characteristics and low-frequency distortion, to get straight to the components that govern great amp tone.


RevivalDRIVE Compact distills the complex functionality of the groundbreaking RevivalDRIVE into an intuitive new design that retains the sound and tonal range of the original. The brand-new Highs control takes the larger pedal’s three distinct preamp voicing modes and maps them onto a single, continuous knob that offers a wealth of new in-between settings. The unique Interactive Blend circuit simultaneously backs off the gain as you mix in your clean tone, ensuring pleasing, musical results throughout the control’s travel.


While most overdrives will work well with some amps and not so well with others, the RevivalDRIVE Compact’s built-in Post-Drive EQ lets you tailor the output of the pedal to work with just about any amp, as well as flat-response power amps, mixers and recording interfaces.

The Post-Drive EQ means you don’t have to compromise your preferred clean settings to get the perfect drive sound. Simply set your amp how you like it, then adjust the RevivalDRIVE Compact’s proprietary EQ filter until it matches.


With the RevivalDRIVE Compact, we wanted to pack everything players loved about the RevivalDRIVE into a smaller pedal with a simpler set of controls. To achieve this, we designed a new, single channel rectifier circuit, voiced midway between a solid-state rectifier and a GZ34 rectifier valve, in place of the original’s separate Valve and Silicon Rectifier channels.

We also decided to leave out additional features like the switchable mid-range boost and the Ghost control. If you want these extra features, switchable channels and more detailed control over things like dry signal level and output EQ, then the RevivalDRIVE is the one for you, but if you just want to get to the same unparalleled overdrive sounds, and you want to get there fast, that’s exactly what the RevivalDRIVE Compact delivers.


Housed in a hand polished, brushed stainless steel enclosure and furnished with aluminium controls, Neutrik jack sockets and heavy-duty footswitch, the RevivalDRIVE Compact is at home on the road as it is in the studio.
