ZIM
is two independent true-bypass effects in one pedal. It's the definitive dual-drive pedal.
ZIM is not the same as other overdrives. Instead of a bypass switch and a boost switch, ZIM has two individual channels which can be used individually or together in series (cascaded). Each has its own true bypass (3pdt) switch with LED. This gives you three different sounds (A, B, or A + B). With the option of having two gain stages in series, you'll never be starved for gain.

Instead of a treble control, ZIM has a unique voicing circuit that gives you almost limitless control of your overdriven tone. In addition, each channel has its own bass/treble trimmer which can be set internally.

ZIM's two channels use plug-in cards, called ZIMcards, for their processing. ZIM comes with a pair of ZIMcards already installed. The current default ZIMcards are Vintage Tube in Channel A and Hot 9 in Channel B. This pair gives a wide range of overdrive sounds. If you'd like us to customize your ZIM pedal with specific ZIMcards, please email Dave to discuss your preferences.

Foxrox currently offers 10 ZIMcard options, and any one can go into either slot. Try any combination you like. This gives you the ultimate flexibility for configuring your own ZIM! It also allows you to justify having multiple ZIMs, putting out completely different sounds.
