The team's opinion: The Hermida Audio Unimos Ruby is an overdrive with the character and dynamics of a tube amp! Regulars of the site will know that we find it difficult to remain objective with the Hermida Audio brand but that's how it is!
However, it would be simplistic to limit the Unimos Ruby to a simple overdrive. Minimum gain, the latter can be likened to a clean boost. On the other hand, when you turn up the gain knob, the nice overdrive will quickly turn into furious saturation and even fuzz. Which makes it a fairly versatile pedal.
The voicing of this pedal is rather oriented medium / high-medium. Therefore, it is particularly interesting to break into a busy mix. Soloists will love his presence! In addition, its transparency will make it an ideal tool for guitarists who do not want to distort the grain of their favorite tube amp.
If you are looking for color, you will rather have to turn to a reference like the Catalinbread Dirty Little Secret !
This Hermida Audio is in pretty good condition and comes with its original box! This is a rare model on the second-hand market, because let's not forget, the Hermida Audio brand unfortunately no longer exists.
