NY Amp Show '10 - Hermida Audio Tiki Drive & More

June 30, 2010
PG's Shawn Hammond is On Location at the 2010 NY Amp Show where he visits the Hermida Audio Technology room. In this segment, we get to see and hear two of their newest pedals--the Tiki Drive and the Blackface Drive.

The Tikie Drive was a collaboration with Alfonso Hermida and Elliot Easton of The Cars. They created Hermida's darkest-voiced overdrive pedal yet. Its controls are Volume, Gain 1, Gain 2, Tone, and Voice.

The Blackface Drive has a voicing more in-line with Hermida's previous overdrive pedals. It is designed to add a little hair and grit to a solid clean signal, but still allow chord definition and single notes to be heard. Also, its voice is based on the 60s Fender Blackface amps. Its controls are Volume, Gain, Tone, and Voice.
