Electro-Harmonix creates classic overdrive in a JRC4558 IC based pedal that’s as bold as New York City. Symmetrical overdrive adds edge and gain without compromising tone. Volume and Drive take it from sweet to searing while Tone lets you dial in just the right amount of bite to cut through the mix.
No matter how hard you drive it, you’re always in control. True bypass and tone that is absolutely unflinching at a musician-friendly price!
DRIVE Knob – Controls the amount of input gain. As you turn DRIVE clockwise, the overdrive ranges from mild edge to classic distortion.
TONE Knob – Emphasizes a range of tones; from bass to treble as the TONE knob is turned clockwise.
VOL Knob – Sets the output volume of the EAST RIVER DRIVE.
FOOTSWITCH and LED – The footswitch selects whether the EAST RIVER DRIVE is engaged or in true bypass mode. When the effect is engaged, the LED will be lit.
INPUT jack – This ¼” jack is the audio input for the EAST RIVER DRIVE. The input impedance is 375k Ohm.
AMP jack – This ¼” jack is the audio output from the EAST RIVER DRIVE. The output impedance is 250 Ohm.
9V Power Jack – The EAST RIVER DRIVE can run off of a 9V battery or you can use an optional 9VDC AC Adapter capable of delivering at least 25mA to the 9V power jack, such as the EHX9.6DC-200. The AC Adapter must have a center negative plug. The battery may be left in or taken out when using an AC Adapter. The EAST RIVER DRIVE has a current draw of 6mA at 9VDC.
Great for getting some dirt out of a clean amp or pushing your dirty amp over the top
