The Electro Harmonix East River Drive is an overdrive that nods towards the brand’s New York home, and the boldness of ‘The Big Apple’. The name ‘East River Drive’ is a reference to the road that runs along N.Y.’s East River, which separates Queens and Manhattan.

Naming the pedal after this local landmark gives a great indication of the kind of tone you can expect here. Like an NY resident, it delivers overdrive with a bold, confident character, packed with unique charm.

The unit is a convenient, compact design, which should find its own space on a pedal board without too much trouble. As with all EHX models, it is a heavy-duty construction and well up to a life of being stomped on. The front panel is emblazoned with some typically unique graphics- in this case depicting the iconic NY skyline.

Controls are kept very simple here, with just a volume control, tone and drive controls equipped. The key design detail that sets the EHX New York Drive apart from every other overdrive the brand has ever made is its use of a JRC4558 Integrated Circuit.

This classic component is responsible for the pedal’s symmetrical overdrive. This provides the bold tone, which gives it its character. With huge amounts of tone and ‘edge’ that will cut through any performance or mix, the East River Drive is an incredibly useful tool for recording or gigging. This is a pedal that is perfect for giving a little bit of distorted edge to clean tones, or pushing overdriven tones further.

At all drive levels, tone is a sweet and responsive, and true bypass operation ensures that tone isn’t lost when the pedal isn’t in use.
