    I have never stacked two pedals with better results than the Zen and Mos. With both set to moderate gain, they stack beautifully: great note definition, no intermodulation, low noise floor, incredible sustain and most importantly, note bloom.

    Anyone else get the same results?

    I use a dual Mosferatu. I love it. I also get great results!

    I also get great results when pushing my Zendrive with my Demeter Mid Boost or Alembic Blaster or both! Alf's pedals are more amp-like than any other pedals I've used over twenty years of searching. It's like you're going through the preamp section of a high end boutique amp.

    I asked Alf if he could make a dual Zen/Mos. He said he could but there would be a bit of a wait because he was still backed up with non-custom stuff. My need for instant gratification led me to pick up a used Zendrive and a matching Mini Mos.

    I've got the "matching set" as well: the Zen and a Mini Mos 4 knob - both new. Both of these take up less space on my board than my ToneBone!!

    I've got the same setup. Do you run the Mos into the Zen or the other way around? I prefer Mos->Zen myself.

    Didn't try the Mos/Zen config, only the other way around. I'll have to give it a go.

    I find Mos to Zen works best for me. AND, I've unplugged both of them from my Pedal Power and only use carbon batteries.
