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.

Awesome pedal!

Gabriel792, 28.08.2018
I use the pedal for subtle overdrive and/or boost, for which the pedal delivers awesome quality sounds. The overdrive has low gain thus being clear even at max level. The volume control offers a clean boost which sends valve amps into overdrive. I would recommend it to anyone that uses low gain overdrives or boosts in their pedalboards.
