UK pedal firm Origin Effects has debuted its latest offering, the M-EQ Driver, which aims to bottle the sound of a classic Pultec EQ and then take it to new and interesting places.

The M-EQ Driver is directly inspired by the Pultec units found in studios since the ’50s, which were famed for their sparkly mid tones and valve saturation. However, Origin is clear it’s not a simple clone of the circuit, rather a version of the most useful parts for guitar players, packaged in a compact pedal.
