Strymon Riverside Multistage Drive pedal
They may be the current flavour of the month for time based effects, but Strymon also know how to deliver an incredible drive pedal. The Riverside is a multistage drive pedal with both analogue and digital circuitry and has an incredible amount of flexibility and versatility.
The first stage utilises a Class A JFET circuit, this delivers up to 20dB of analogue gain which means you can really push this pedal hard! Once your signal has passed through this stage it gets a tasty boost from the SHARC DSP chip which adds a detailed, dynamic distortion. This means that your pedal will react like a tube amp, responsive to the intensity of your picking at low volumes and delivering that cascading drive at higher volumes.
With a low gain channel for classic, smooth drive, a high gain channel for modern saturated distortion and a 3-band EQ you can sculpt your own tone with ease. This is a comprehensive pedal and delivers super sweet drives right across the board.
