Thanks all for the incredible insight and info! Apologies if this has been covered already but all my searches have turned up conflicting info...

Has it been confirmed beyond all doubt that the zendrive used mosfet body diode clipping and not true mosfet gate clipping with blocking diodes? I'm curious because all schematics show G+D mosfet clipping with additional diodes in series. However the Tanabe Zenkudo in "zen" mode, which is a pretty close copy appears to use 1n34a's as blocking diodes to create gate mosfet clipping. The Zenkudo is also the only production pedal i'm aware of that uses mosfet gate clipping.

Thanks in advance!
