Brand: Dr. Z
Brand new from Dr. Z, designed in conjunction with Earthquaker Devices, the Z-Drive is a two-channel overdrive with one side being a mosfet design and the other based on a germanium transistor. The germanium channel uses NOS germanium diodes and is a lighter more open sounding overdrive. The mosfet channel is a more compressed, higher gain overdrive. Both gain stages use hi-fi OPA 2134 op amps. Becasue the signal goes through the EQ first, turning the EQ controls clockwise can increase overall gain/distortion.
With the Z-Drive you essentially get two pedals in one. You can use one channel as a cleaner boost and the second channel for full overdrive or dial in overdrive sounds to bring out the different characteristics of each channel. Between the two channels and the full EQ the Z-Drive will open up a world of possibilities while complementing the tone of your amp.
