Strymon Riverside


I know, I know. The last thing I need is another overdrive pedal.

I mean, look at this list:

  • Timmy
  • Tim
  • Fulldrive II
  • Fulldrive III
  • Fulldrive III Anniversary Edition (it was orange)
  • OCD
  • Rockett Archer
  • Kalamazoo
  • TS-9
  • Xotic BB Plus
  • Wave Cannon
  • PCE Aluminum Falcon 2 (very interesting experience with that pedal, I did finally get one and it did not work when I received it. Never sent it back for reasons in this thread)

I have some other boost pedals — they don’t count as overdrive pedals do they? — as well as a few distortion pedals.

But this obsession I have with overdrive pedals. What is up with that?

The good folks at Strymon let me know that their Riverside pedal was ready to ship. I am a big fan of their work. I run a Mobius, Timeline, Deco and El Capistan. I rarely play without the Timeline. And, if the pedalboard has space, I will always make room for the El Capistan.

They had to make an overdrive pedal. And I had to get it.

Maybe tomorrow? It is very close to home right now.
