Mini ZIM is a pedal that YOU get to configure. Its function is determined by the ZIMcard that is installed. ZIMcards include Overdrive, Fuzz, Distortion, Boost and Octave. They can be swapped, modified and collected. You can choose a ZIMcard when ordering, or you can order a Mini ZIM with no ZIMcard installed.
Mini ZIM is a single-channel version of the original Foxrox ZIM - a dual-pedal that allows you to configure what its two channels do. Each channel has a slot for a plug-in circuit called a ZIMcard. Mini ZIM brings the same modular approach to a compact, single-channel pedal, and it works with the same ZIMcards that have been used with ZIM since it was introduced in 2002.
VOLUME: Controls the overall volume of the pedal. Typical setting is around 1:00 but can vary depending on the ZIMcard installed.
DRIVE: Controls the amount of gain, resulting in more drive, fuzz or distortion, depending on the ZIMcard installed
TONE: Turn down for bass, up for treble. The blue tone trimmer on the installed ZIMcard can be used for additional tone shaping. If not used for that purpose, it should be left in its middle setting.
Right now, you can choose from 11 different ZIMcards. More will be added in the future. You can purchase ZIMcards on their own, and you can also order a blank ZIMcard.
You can send a ZIMcard to Foxrox and have it exchanged with any of the other available ZIMcards. Turnaround is under 2 weeks.
ZIMcard schematics are available for people who like to perform mods on their pedals. With Mini ZIM, you can mod all you want without any wear and tear to the main pedal. Blank ZIMcards are available to build your own circuit.
MINI ZIM FEATURES
CARD SLOT: The ZIMcard is plugged into an 8-pin connector and held in place with a #6-32 screw. A hex-standoff secures the card in place. Hard foam on the bottom of the pedal protects the ZIMcard from vibration, keeps the hex nut from turning and holds the battery in place.
