An incredible overdrive with “haunting mids” placing it in a class all it’s own! The Klon KTR!
Prior to lighting this one up, I had the chance to play the EHX Soul Food, Rimrock Effects Mythical Overdrive, and the Kingslayer (which currently occupies my board. The day arrive when the Klon KTR shipped, and mine arrived without fanfare, and certainly without fancy packaging.
It sports red paint on it and a witty slogan. The internal SMC components are solidly attached, and the parts are built to be replaced in a manner that insures a fast turnaround from whatever support klon-siberia.com offers. Many newer pedals are released with individually mounted pcb boards that contain a switch, inputs, even pots are mounted for quick swaps. Paul Cochrane developed the bypass circuit as an option to the buffer. The Klon KTR Overdrive relies on it’s namesake to sell, and it has done well!
The sound of this pedal is incredible. I have two settings for Klon type pedals:
- Dimed Volume, Zero Gain
- 10 o’clock Volume, 1 o’clock Gain
Both settings sounded great. And I mean great. Sparkle, Harmonics, Blues Drive…Honestly, it’s hard to beat. It’s an excellent overdrive, and a stellar boost pedal.
My Mythical Overdrive can copy the tone of the KTR, and then some. Given the aesthetics I the MO, I reasoned in my mind to pass on the Klon KTR to another player. There is some mythos to the idea that this pedal was modeled after the Centaur, of course.
My Kingslayer Klone Trooper took the tones of the KTR and ran with them. It is the future of Klon type pedals, without question.
With so many Klon type pedals out there, one can get lost in the shuffle of gearmanndude videos and Pro Guitar Shop demos trying to guess if one will work with your rig.
If you are doubting any of the videos, grab a Kingslayer, a Mythical Overdrive, Soul Food or a KTR. You will be happy with all three if you enjoy this type of pedal at all.
For you on a budget, get your EHX Soul Food Klone Overdrive Pedal today! You cannot go wrong with this pedal!
