I use this pedal usually as my main overdrive. it really brings out the amps true colour without diluting the amps tone. Very clear and distinct and allows all of the chords to breath without sounding too muffled. The Klon KTR may not be for everybody but it really works for my sound and its always best to hear these stomp boxes in the flesh to best hear the character. I set the overdrive at 1 o'clock , tone at 11 and the volume depending on the gig.
