Dhyana Drive (Hermida Zendrive)

Dhyana Drive, the Helix model of a Hermida Zendrive

Recorded using a stratocaster with the pickup in the neck position. The first section of this sample is with the pedal on. The second is with the pedal off, for comparison.

The Hermida ZenDrive is a "Dumble in a box" pedal that you should try pairing up with a clean Fender amp for a great tone. Alfonso Hermida wanted to replicate Robben Ford's tone in his "Golden Slumbers" cover from a Beatles tribute album.

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 β€œsweet spot.” At higher settings, the Zendrive increases in gain and sustain, producing tasty overdrive and low distortion tones.

This patch was provided to me by my teacher Josh Skaja. It's an all-purpose patch that you can use for performing a number of pop songs. Two distortion pedals allows for some great gain staging. The modulation blocks are really versatile as well.  In this YouTube video I'm using it with the delay and Dimension blocks to play Message in a Bottle. I've also used it for Beat It and Call me Maybe.Josh's main course is called The System and I can't recommend it enough. You can it out here http:/thesystem.rocks

Twin Diana

Lovely clean Twin and Dhyana for some (or more) overdrive. Also trem and delay in front, and some boosts after the amp.

Oh Ingrid

Derailed Ingrid patch, showing the Trainwreck amp model of the Helix. The Dhyana Drive is included, but not enabled by default. I have been making good use of the "Double Take" modulation effect, it adds a lot of body to the sound through headphones. If you're playing into a PA or direct recording, you may want to turn off this effect.You can hear various degrees of distortion in the Soundcloud demo - I didn't change anything except the attack of my pick.In the Soundcloud demo I am playing a Les Paul standard with a Burstbucker in the bridge.
