No need for an original Klon for twice the price.
andu0101010101, 17.11.2020
This pedal is really good as the sound is not really different from the original Klon. It has a teeny bit more bass, but the tone control can manage that.
I have found no need to buy the costly Klon, as this does almost the same as the Klon and packs the same "magic".
I'm really pleased with the Archer.

Okay but not up to the hype
Jeff RoQ, 16.01.2020
I found the Archer to be ok but not living up to the hype of the pedal or the buzz on you tube - I ended up selling it. I struggled to get a decent drive sound out of it and found it muddy.
My next step into this type of pedal is the RYRA Klone - and to be honest it is way better than the Archer. A bit bigger but around the same price.

A great sounding overdrive
Santiago H., 23.02.2016
Leaving out the comparisons with the other mythical pedal aside, this is a great sounding overdrive that adds this "breaking point" characteristics to a set up without modifying much the tone of the guitar and amp (just a bit of compression maybe).

I hear a lot more clarity when this is engaged and for a few months have been on almost the entire time on my pedalboard.

Build quality is great and the detail of having the input/output jacks in the back to me is great since it saves some space in the board.

I can definitely recommend it, I'm enjoying it a lot.

Low gain overdrive
William P., 24.08.2016
Used with Les Paul into Hiwatt DR504. I wanted a low gain crunch to drive my Hiwatt which is a very clean amp for rythmn parts. The low gain break-up was not smooth enough for me, however the higher gain end of the pedal sounded fantastic for lead sounds. I then used it on my 1980 Marshall JMP which has a natural break-up it sounded great. The pedal Sound very open and the individual strings come though clearly. I will give it a high Rating because it is excellently built, and would Sound great with an amp that is breaking up already. I have returned it and bought a Fulltone OCD which works better on my set up.
