Klon Centaur … (Clone)
Just to be clear … this is a new pedal created pedal in the style of the iconic Klon Centaur. The original Klon Centaur is no longer made. There were only something like 5000 made and they are now second hand offered on Ebay for very high prices. Prices of €1000 and higher are no exception.
Does not need much explanation. This is the norm for all overdrive pedals since 1995. There are many stories related to the development of this pedal but it is for sure that there is no pedal even close to what this is. The gain is so subtle to control…….it basically begins as boost. When you turn it slowly to the right you get some overdrive. Turn the gain even more open than he can scream like an 808 can.
Treble has more range as usual but remains very musical.

Due to the unusual electrical circuit with the charge pump and the specific components it is really something special. In the last pictures you see the germanium diodes that are important for the Klon sound.
And of course real true bypass.
Power: 9VDC, center negative
