    1981 Inventions 1981 Inventions LVL Full-Range Overdriver


    Product Description


    This is a new circuit entirely! It’s 1981's second official release, after the DRV.

    LVL is a professional low-gain device, which achieves overdrive gain ranges with a new and unique circuit. A combination of light clipping and op-amp push gives the pedal a unique sound and gain structure.

    This is the pedal 1981 has always wanted to make. To them, it’s a perfect low-gain stage. It’s the culmination of a 4 year process, and a collaborative effort with Matt Hoopes' friend John Snyder of ELECTRONIC AUDIO EXPERIMENTS.

    It works great on bass, which is what FULL-RANGE refers to. It also stacks with anything, makes most fuzz better if you put it after, makes most overdrives better if you put it before. It’s also great if you hit the front end with a little boost!

    Matthew Hoopes says "I can play an entire set with my band - Relient K, using only this pedal. If you’re familiar with our recordings, LVL is the Forget And Not Slow Down sound, where as DRV is the sound of Mmhmm."
