PedalMonsters Klone- Based on the legendary Klon Centaur, the PedalMonsters klone is the pedal that put us on the map. It's still our most requested pedal and for good reason. It works well with just about any amp/guitar and sounds great no matter what setting. Essentially the klon is a overdrive/boost pedal that can do just about anything.
Need a little more bite to your amp? Done.
Want more gain? Done.
Need a clean boost? Done.
Want to ride a magical pony? Done.
Get all of the Klonlike goodness, without any of the ridiculous pricing!
PLEASE NOTE: Our klone operates on standard 9v and is true bypass. Not all 9v are created equal and we would strongly ask you to not just randomly plug a 9v into the klone otherwise you risk damaging your pedal. We would recommend using a 1spot/VoodooLab PP as it must operate on strictly 9v and 100ma.
Also, since each pedal is built to order, please expect a 7-14 day lead time for our elves to build the pedal for you.
Dimensions: 4.67" x 3.68" x 1.18" (119mm x 94mm x 30mm)

If I took a $1,800 Klon and a $150 Klone and played them for you (while you were blindfolded), there would be no way of telling the difference. This pedal makes my Blues Jr. sing. I couldn't recommend a better clone of the all-mighty Klon.

I'm quite impressed with the PM Klone pedal. I've tried a few Klon clones and have found the PM Klone offers great dynamic range with tonal transparency. It went immediately to my pedalboard as my main overdrive. The sound is as amazing as the price.
Cheers to Pedal Monsters!

Never tried a real klon but this is just what I was looking for. Smooth clean boost and works well with other pedals. Very different tones, quite versatile, transparent or blow your ears out flexibility.

I said it all in the title...
Really amazing boost and overdrive...
Really true ton my guitar sound, fits perfectly in my rig and works great with other pedals !!
Can't really compare with a real Klon since i've never had one but sounds great to my ears...
Maybe in a next upgarde they'll had a buffer like the original centaur

I was looking up klon centaur over-drive pedals because I wanted to get a sound close to Hisako Tabuchi from Toddle. After doing research I came across this klone and decided to try it out. Anyways, it works just like I hoped. There's just something so sparkly about a klon. The laffy taffy was also a nice addition, ha ha.
Just make sure you have a 9v adapter ready!!!

This is a great take on the classic Klon pedal. Well made and the guys where super nice!

I have played so many overdrives and I have never met one that I really wanted to keep on my board until I got this Klone. It blew me away right out of the box. The overdrive is so bright but it is still amazingly full and most overdrives are one or the other. The versatility of the sound is incredible. Great pedal, get one to try for yourself.

As an original "gold horsie" KLON owner I feel somewhat qualified to compare the Pedalmonsters Klone with the original. I have traditionally used my KLON as a clean boost. It is always "on" and a key component of my pedalboard. It adds another dimension to the sound and increases the dynamics of any amp I've paired it with. That said with the astronomical price of original KLONs these days I was looking for a pedal I could use on my second board, without the fear of losing it to opportunistic thieves. Using the pedal set almost the same way (Output 1 o'clock, Gain near off, Tone at 1 o'clock) the pedal does exactly what I want it to does and what my KLON does so well. Increasing the gain yields a nice, transparent overdrive and I find this pedal to be a tad smoother than my original KLON as the drive is increased.
Great pedal at a fair price. Jason was a pleasure to deal with.

This pedal is dope! Wanting to rid myself free of the tubescreamer-esque tone, I bought this pedal.I have not been disappointed. It adequately handles the load of a great clean boost and also sounds gnarly as you increase the gain. No regrets.
