The larger housing of the Twin Custom($550 direct) is designed
to accommodate any combination of two Zumkudo and Dumkudo
pedals. The double Zenkudo version on review here offers a staggering
range of tones. Overdriving the input of the second stage
with the first circuit took sustain and timbre off into new territories
that no single pedal could achieve alone. And when routed
directly into the mixing console in the studio, the twin Zenkudo
version sounded more like a good amplifier with a mic on it,
providing outstanding note detail, dynamics, and tonal complexity.
Given a choice of what to put in a Twin Custom, I would
select a Zenkudo/Dumkudo pairing for classic sounds, or two
Dumkudos for sheer over-the-top intensity and sustain. It’s
worth noting that the Twin Custom (or any of the other Tanabes)
may be ordered with a lighter colored simulated pearl top,
which makes it easier to read the control labeling.
KUDOS Quiet. Extremely versatile. A wide variety of both subtle
and powerful tones.
CONCERNS Very pricey.
