4 from 5 i like the way it boosts the signal

Im not so keen on how it overdrives.
adapt manual towards real situation, not with old pcbs.

5 from 5 Excellent.

Excellent Overdrive, especially with the suggested Ultra Mod in the MKC 3 documentation.

5 from 5 A More versatile centaur

Sounds just right, but with fullrange option. Som issues with the instructions though. Gain pot gets backwards and it tellurs you to unmount wrong diode when adding 3pdt-board.

5 from 5 So incredibly clean!

Absolutely delighted with this build. Straightforward, easy build. I accidentally broke a germanium diode, so for beginners it may make sense to add a word of warning on how to treat those diodes. Used some other silicon diodes I had lying around and was very pleased! The boost and drive is so very nice and smooth. I A/B:ed it to several other klones (varying price ranges) and this one has incredibly low noise. It now has a permanent position on my main pedal board

5 from 5 Awesome pedal, enjoyed the build

Absolutely delighted with the sound of this pedal, as boost or as a pure overdrive, very good sounding one, very similar to tube clipping.
Keep in mind the diodes are delicate and you can either burn them soldering or break them bending the legs. Positively surprised by getting the latest version of the PCB, very good quality components. I just can recommend it.
Alert!! This one can make you pedalaholic, be careful.

5 from 5 Nice one!

A good transparent overdrive (like Klon Centaur of course ) , using it alone , it brings subtle boosting clean sounds .
Also it adds pleasant creamy sounds when stacking it with other Od or Dist pedals, my favourite purpose.
The bass boost , nice option too.

4 from 5 I like it

May not be the best Klon clone out here, but it does really well. I like the way it colors the signal, May be a little dark though.

Very well made PCB and very good documentation, takes some time to build properly.
