    Clips here...................<


    I've had a tough week....not the best clips....hope you can hear what this pedal can do. Very Very musical effect. Some big boys are using this and I can see why. :)

    Actually I thought the clips sounded terrific. What volume level was the amp at before you kicked in the pedal.

    It's an 18 watt amp. Not that loud but great tone. It's a .22 cal w/ Amperex and RCA tubes. That being said...I do push the amp when I play and record. That is how I use it live...you get a better idea what a pedal really sounds like.

    Do you prefer the Zendrive 1 or Zendrive 2? How would you characterize their differences?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey Gainster...

    I listened to your Zendrive 2 clips and they sound real sweet. It sounds more like a Dumble than the Zendrive 1, IMHO.

    Have you swapped tubes yet? If so, what were your findings?

    When will Al release this pedal?

    How much will it cost?

    Thanks.


    BTW... I had a Zendrive too, and it was very nice, but compared to my other pedals (Dual Drive, CJOD, Tweedy), it didn't bring anything unique enough to warrant staying on my board.

    I don't care for the JJs either. Which 'new' Mullard are you referring to? Do you mean the GT 12AX7M?

    I'm using a comination of Amperex, Telefunken, Mullard and JAN GE 12AX7WA - incredible difference.

    I found old Mullards to be a bit too much in the mids, which resulted in less definition, whereas the Amperex and Telefunkens were more balanced and pleasing in that regard, especially the Telefunkens. I use my Mullard 12AX7 in the phase inverter position - it's not balanced, but that actually works better than a balanced tube.

    Seems like the pick attack is coming through a lot. Do you have a heavy attack? What pick are you using?
