Klon KTR Centaur Overdrive

Effects pedal for electric guitar

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.

As good as people say it is

22.06.2016
The text on the pedal is worth reading: 'Kindly remember: the ridiculous hype that offends so many is not of my making': in other words, this pedal is not going to make you into a guitar god by magic. Sadly nothing will.

What it will do is to provide an extremely flexible combination of gain and overdrive which sounds good at almost any setting: you can use it as a very transparent clean boost to push an amp into distortion, or as a very pleasant overdrive to provide distortion itself, or as any combination of the two. And most of the combinations sound good, which is unusual.

It's probably best suited for guitarists who want to hear a lot of the tone of the instrument without it being overdriven so far all you can hear is the pedal/amp: this is certainly how I use it.

It's very well built and, I think, beautiful to look at: I like the text written on it (and the subtle highlighting!), and that the knobs aren't labelled: do you really need them to be? Others might not.

Is it as good as a Centaur? Probably. Should you buy it rather than a knock-off? Yes, if you can.

I use the red box for two very different applications:
1. To practice using headphones I switch the box as Zerre before the JamUp Pro app on my iPhone. This allows the "digital" tube amp to blow surprisingly well and give the whole a somewhat "more analog" dynamic
2. As a riot before my 67s Fender Bassman. This is probably the king's discipline of the clone KTR Centaur. Whether as a clean booster, for crooked sounds or for punkrock High Gain snot. Everything is possible and sounds incredibly good and wonderful overtone rich, Da mats, muffles and shrills nothing! In addition, the crate has a great dynamic. With volume potentiometer and velocity the sound can be controlled from almost clean to board on the guitar.

In both applications above the box is an enrichment for the sound and meanwhile with me actually always at.
For metalers, the thing is probably nothing more, all the others: the best!
