Mini ZIM

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.

Mini ZIM’s function is determined by the ZIMcard that is installed.


ZIMcards include Overdrive, Distortion, Fuzz, Octave and Boost. You can also purchase blank ZIMcards for your own experimentation. Schematics for ZIMcards are posted on the Foxrox website.


If you want to change the sound of your Mini ZIM, you can send the ZIMcard to Foxrox in exchange for any other available ZIMcard.

LED Color

An internal DIP switch allows you to select the color of the status indicator LED. If you use more than one Mini ZIM, this will help you to tell them apart.


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.

LED COLORS: Select Blue, Red or Green. Combine for more colors.

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.


WARRANTY: Foxrox warranties this pedal for 5 years against failure. Parts and labor are covered. Warranty does not cover damage due to improper voltage, extreme abuse and unauthorized modifications. For repair help, email
