1981 Inventions LVL Full Range Overdrive Pedal


Midwood Guitar Studio is proud to now offer 1981 Inventions! We started out with a handful of the coveted DRV pedal and we are so stoked to be a part of the official release of the LVL! The LVL is a full range overdrive pedal and this will absolutely pack a punch if you need it to. Slamming this pedal into another drive pedal will help lift your tones to levels unimaginable, pun intended. If you dime it, it screams, if you stack it, it rips.  Add this killer pedal to your board today! You won't regret it!


From 1981 Inventions:


This is a new circuit entirely! It’s my 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 I have always wanted to make. To me, it’s a perfect low-gain stage. It’s the culmination of a 4 year process, and a collaborative effort with my 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!

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.
