The Mike Skinner clone is supposed to be cool, gibsonguitar1988 has one here, maybe he will chime in for you.

Good luck!

Love my Klone.. Although now with the Rook, it's really not needed on that particular board.

But yes - Mike makes a great pedal and he's recently updated it and made it a lot cooler - called the Light OD.

Generally speaking - I love the Klon. Great clear gritty overdrive. Had to have one after I saw Joe Perry's setup!

Very cool. Do you sell them? Have you tried any other clones?

Of course. Several were spot on. Others, not so much.

I generally avoid selling unless it's a specific request. I don't really build 'commercially' so to speak but as on 'as needed basis'

Would love to hear some samples though I never understood the hype. Nice ODs for sure but why is there so much hype around them?

I bet if he turned the FD2 in this battle to comp cut it would clean up a tone (vintage mode is the dirtiest). Either way all of them sound pretty damn good for a clean OD.

Same reason as the Timmy gets so much 'mojo attention.' It's limited supply and people seem to think low supply/high prices equal a better pedal for some reason.

A few Klons were used by some very famous players...so naturally that draws more attention. Personally, the best boost pedal similar to a Klon I've ever played was a Keeley.

I was PISSED when that one was destroyed.
