Origin Effects M-EQ guitar pedal

Origin Effects M-EQ

Mid-boost and drive pedal from Origin Effects                                            

The M-EQ DRIVER is a Mid Booster & Drive pedal, based on a vintage Pultec® studio EQ.

Here’s what Origin say: Still sought after today, these legendary passive EQs from 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 making an exact replica, we have chosen to reimagine this classic piece of studio gear as a guitar-oriented, compact pedal.

Craft the perfect mid boost, add some studio-inspired saturation or push the pedal’s valve-like output stage into fierce “cocked wah” distortion. With the addition of our Adaptive Circuitry, the M-EQ DRIVER is always responsive and precise, with a character all of its own.
