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

HX Stomp Direct (Recording, Headphone, PA) Derailed Ingrid patch, showing the Trainwreck amp model of the Helix. The Dhyana Drive is included, but not enabled by default.

HX Stomp Direct (Recording, Headphone, PA) 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.&nb… kalimar 8 0
