Description & Specs

The Halcyon Green Overdrive is a classic low-gain drive pedal featuring our proprietary Adaptive circuitry. This unique design allows it to adapt its voicing in response to pick attack and volume changes, making it one of the most dynamic and interactive overdrives out there. While it is based on the same green pedal that has inspired countless clones, this little box goes way beyond what the average overdrive has to offer. Based on the Ibanez Tube Screamer for a reason, Its mid-forward voicing, low-gain drive and a touch of clean signal make it a great choice for pushing an amp, allowing players to jump out of the mix with a thick solo tone. However, once you turn down your guitar volume or play softly, that mid-pushed drive tone can become a thin, nasal clean tone. It’s this all-or-nothing nature of classic drives that has us stacking numerous pedals for various shades of saturation.

The Adaptive circuitry in the Halcyon Green Overdrive is our solution to this problem, with all the magic of a vintage TS808 on tap, but a responsiveness that is usually only found in the best valve amplifiers. A whole new level of playability for lovers of classic pedal tones.

Adapt Switch
The Halcyon Green Overdrive’s party trick is its ADAPT switch. This allows the pedal’s mid-forward voicing to gradually fade away as the pedal cleans up, giving you classic TS808 tone with your guitar cranked but revealing the full spectrum of your clean tone as you roll back the volume knob. This breakthrough feature means you never have to tread that fine line, wondering if your drive pedal should be on or off. And there’s more besides! 

Dry
The DRY control lets you adjust the level of the dry signal that makes up part of this classic drive tone. Increasing this control adds body and definition when boosting a low-gain amp sound. Thanks to the more natural drive sounds offered by the ADAPT switch, the Halcyon Green Overdrive can also be much more effective as a standalone drive pedal that you might expect from the TS808 circuit. When used with a completely clean amp, turning the DRY control down lets you get the most out of this pedal’s higher gain tones. 

Voice Switch
The VOICE switch gives you the ability to select either the classic TS808 mid hump or a brighter, more focused presence peak. The 808 setting is simply the standard voicing, while the MOD setting moves the mid hump slightly further up the frequency range, with a more resonant character. This can be very useful with neck humbuckers, preventing the sound from becoming too warm. 

For Metal players using the Halcyon Green Overdrive to tighten up a high gain amp tone, the MOD setting adds even more presence and bite. Of course, all the sounds of the stock Tube Screamer® are available too, recreated with Origin-level accuracy.

Please Note: the Halcyon Green is powered by a mains adaptor only (not included). We’ve dispensed with the usual 9V battery option, both to save space and to allow us to adopt a high-current approach, yielding lower noise levels and superior tone. Origin Effects pedals are designed to deliver impeccable performance using a range of power supplies. We recommend you only use a regulated power supply specifically designed for guitar pedal applications as power supplies which do not have sufficient internal filtering can result in unwanted noise.
