The fabled Zendrive overdrive is now a UK exclusive to Andertons!
The Hermida Audio Zendrive is one of the most sought after overdrive pedals in the world. Originally produced in very small numbers by designer Alfonso Hermida, the Zendrive is now produced by Lovepedal, who make some of our favourite pedals of all time!
The Zendrive rose to fame because of its tube-like tone which came about from obsessive attention to detail from Hermida (who prior to designing pedals worked for NASA producing scientific instruments!) to get the perfect balance of saturation and harmonics required to result in all of the 'in-tangibles' that make a pedal overdrive sound like a real amp overdrive. Things like touch sensitivity and response to guitar tone and volume control changes.
If you're looking for a tube-screamer clone in a fancy box then look elsewhere because the Zendrive carves its own unique overdrive tone unlike anything else! Which is exactly what made it so sought after in the first place: everyone is looking for a new and unique guitar sound and with the Zendrive you're going to find it! Particularly impressive for lead tones the Zendrive has the remarkable ability to crank up the gain without losing punch or clarity.
Here's what Lovepedal say about the Zendrive
The standard in dynamic, touch-sensitive overdrive pedals. Cut through the mix with the incomparable Zendrive. Inspired by a legendary guitarist, the Zendrive delivers blues, country, jazz and fusion tones associated with some of the finest, most costly amplifiers in the market. Four knobs control the overall volume, gain, tone and voicing of the pedal. At lower settings, the pedal offers extremely light overdrive sounds reminiscent of tube amps set near the “sweet spot.” At higher settings, the Zendrive increases in gain and sustain, producing tasty overdrive and low distortion tones.
