Old. Found that 5 or 6 years ago when I first heard about the Klon. His whole site is like that. His overpriced shitboxes are even funnier. He says 4 layer boards sound better than 2 layers.

One Offended Klon User

I am not usually someone who goes out of their way for something like this, but I was stunned to find an entire page on your website bashing the Klon. Then I discover what a hypocrite you are by linking to your own $400 overdrive, without the "expensive custom-made box". Many, many modest players like myself and many great players like Warren Haynes swear by and love our Klons. On top of that, Bill is one of the nicest guys I have ever dealt with in this industry with a unique and extremely well-built product. If you want to tout the virtues of your own product that's admirable, but I can't even begin to understand what must be wrong with you to feel the need to do what you have done. Sincerely, David Kuhn david.kuhn@shaw.ca

The Untouchable Klon
Notice how he does not defend the Klon on the basis of what it can do or how good it is. He defends it based on how dare I say anything negative against something he owns and something rock stars own and something which is made by the nicest guy in the world. In comparison I talk about the unit and how bad it is and how much better the Z pedal is. I point out that the Klon is a con job by the seller at any price, especially at that price. Somehow if the item is purchased by him, other ignorant consumers like him and clueless pro players, its beyond questioning. In addition if the seller of the Klon does not offend anyone by putting on a pandering facade, means that the item should be immune from criticism. I am not sure why he calls me a hypocrite either. He is polite enough, however, I don't follow his logic and he seems to have no argument in favor of the actual Klon unit. It seems, more than anything, like I offended him in his choice of a purchase and its really about him, not the Klon. Alex




one reasonable response followed by a completely incoherent one.

Yianni that article you posted on facebook reminds me of the first time my mate tried mdma. We were on blue aliens and he saw a brawl and was like "you wouldn't be fighting if you were on blue aliens". Instant classic.

Did not think this would live up to the hype, but it's incredible. Can't wait to try it through the Creambacks.

It's not really as Marshall-y as some people claim though. It's more like what the Bogner Ecstasy should have been if it stayed a bit closer to its 800/Plexi roots. Much more balanced upper mid content with a slight bump in the lower mids. Plus it has all of that aggressive treble and presence that Bogner dialed out. Low end varies greatly depending on the punch knob. All the way down, it's a bit bassier than a good JCM800, all the way up, it's got stupid amounts of bass.

The diode clipping is surprisingly good. At least the left option with the higher Vf zeners is. No significant clipping artifacts unless you've got the gain set lower, and why the **** would you throw in the zeners then? The right option is kinda meh though. Might need more tweaking. There's a bit of ducking and it sounds almost like you're blending in some clean signal too loudly. Plus it gets pretty compressed.

It's pretty tight, but has just enough sag in the low end to remind you that it's got a bit of Plexi in it. More modern sounding of course, but it kept everything good about the Marshall topology while getting rid of most of everyone's complaints.

Incredible clarity, the guy I bought it off of wasn't lying when he said it was as articulate or more so than an SLO. Handles complex chords with ease with both gain knobs dimed and it really showed when I started playing it, as I hadn't warmed up.

Speaking of both gain knobs, there are two on the OD channel. They work in conjunction to give you different types of clipping. The right one seems to be a bit brighter and more aggressive, though they each have 3 way bright switches to they can be made to sound similar and you can just use them to dial in the exact amount of dirt that you want.

The clean channel is also great. Very Fender-ish and bright in certain settings, very early JTM45 in others. Plenty of gain on the channel too if you want it. Just dial up the gain knob and you also have the option of two diode clippers, plus another 3 way bright switch. Gets to early VH level gain, though it's a bit dark with not quite enough mids for me to want the gain up that high. Could probably dial it in a little better if you wanted to go that way though.

The Punch knob also has a 3-way switch to determine the frequency that it acts upon. Subtle differences, but I suspect it would be useful when switching between a 212 and a 412 without having to adjust many other settings. Presence knob is the same and the difference is pretty pronounced there.

So ya, absolutely thrilled and I've been playing it for an hour straight. Gotta go to class in a bit again and I really don't want to.

You can switch where it is in the chain. Just plug one side up before dirt, one after and you can program the presets to route through whichever one you want, just not both at once.
