This classic pedal is in excellent / near mint condition. The ZENDRIVE 2 is a variation of the original ZENDRIVE with the addition of a dual triode pre-amp tube. The tube is socketed and can be replaced with other preamp tubes. Different tubes can change the voicing and gain of the pedal. The ZENDRIVE 2 comes with a modern Tung Sol 12AX7 tube, but can also use a 12AT7, 7025, 5751 or similar pre-amp tubes. You must use a 9V 200 mA adapter with these pedals as it does not operate with a battery.
The ZENDRIVE 2 is similar in tone to the original but gives more “Violin” tone with a bit less crunch that gives it a singing quality, this pedal is the most amp like of all the Hermida pedals. It has a smoother warmer “bluesier” sound. A great pedal and no longer being made.
