Recently traded for this Monsterpiece Stud. I actually played a real Klon at my local shop two days ago (where they have it up for a measly $2000), and I have to say that of all the different "Klones" I've tried, the Stud matches the original closer than all the rest. Very versatile, more gain on tap than I originally thought, and some really immaculate wiring. I'd say if you want a Klon type of pedal, you can't do much better than this. Highly recommended!
And it cost?
I didn't buy it as my post mentions, I traded a flanger pedal that I wasn't using for it. Looks like the most recent one on Ebay went for $180 used, and I've seen a few at $140-$150 so I guess in that range.
it's not a pedalboard without a klone.
True! My Buster Jangle will always be my favorite OD, but this is a different flavor of OD and I'm really digging it.
This makes 4 ODs on my board though which I think is a bit too many. I think I maybe need to let one go, but tough decisions!
