Paul did a great demo using the Z Drive through a Z-Lux I believe during the Z Fest jam on all the tunes he played. Awesome crunch and leads.... Especially with his Red 335 (oh how I covet thee... ?) Someone may have made videos
If we are talking demo-ers we like, I've been liking Reverb.com demos lately. After awhile all demos just get sorta stale...the first time I heard Mike Herman I was blown away by his style ... So cool, and such great lines. Same with Andy at PGS...this is the era where instead of rock stars inspiring we get inspired by pedal demo-ers But alas both Andy and Mike have sparked better playing on my part. Don't worry fellas they will pop up.

I felt the same Mark so your not on your own. Though I am sure it will have the exemplary build quality and tone you would expect from Dr Z. I listened to both on my iPad so will try later on my laptop through my monitor speakers and a decent interface. I am not a big pedal user but seem to be have a collection of drive pedals that get very infrequent use unless I need to play at lower volumes . I look forward to more demoes ,especially with a Maz 18.

Nice demos from GMD. I love how the Les Paul sounds through it. The Germanium side sounds so good I'd be happy with just that as a single channel pedal! It seems that there's a whole lot of gain on the Mosfet side available, which I wouldn't use much personally. The EQ section is awesome.
I do prefer that GMD would use less of the demo time strumming chords. I'm looking forward to more demos to hear single string and up the neck playing.
There are many things I love about this demo; first I am so glad GMD plays through an Antidote which I also have; secondly I also play an R9 amongst others. Thirdly I have to say that the best thing about GMD is his boots! Man there is no way I can keep up with that cat! The Dote by itself is incredible, then to bump it up with the Z-Drive takes it to yet another level. For me the chord strumming helps me hear the string separation/articulation or if the pedal turns the chord into one sonic blob. What is cool is that you can get the old school drive and some modern tones out of this beasty. I like both the green and especially the red channel with it's "More Gain/More Pain" sound. Top it off with a lifetime, transferrable warranty and you got a brick house baby! There are a zillion great OD pedals out there but this one stands out for me, thanks GMD. I will be placing my order shortly!

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."
