The original Klone Centaur by Bill Finnegan is one of the most sought-after effects pedals ever. Its creamy and dynamic overdrive is appreciated and loved by countless professionals and it is also often used as a Clean Boost for warming up the signal.
In the last three years, Finnegan has been working on its successor, which enters the market in new housing.
The new Klon KTR Centaur corresponds in terms of sound to the original and also features a switchable buffer.
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.
Truly the most Transparent Overdrive produced. No hiding with this Pedal and most of all it really fattens the High Notes and pushes the Amps Speaker in a Lushful Overdrive with 0% Compression.
Great overdrive, especially at low gain into an amp on the edge of breaking up. Price is reasonable compared to the original Centaurs (what is the hype?). Only drawback is that there is no text to tell you what the knobs do.
