Looking for a little light on the description of a transparent or an overdrive that that doesn't change your natural tone.

Is the Earth Drive and the Klon in the same category or is there much of a difference? Does anyone here own a Klon or a Klon clone?

I own the Earth Drive and I love it but I'm looking into an Archer and was wondering the differences. I'd like to hear your guys's input. :cool:
Thanks,

I have both. The Klon adds a bunch of upper mids, where the Earth Drive does not. Both have great overdrive. So, if you want more color to your tone in the upper mids, then use a Klon. If you want just awesome overdrive with not much coloration of your tone, then use an Earth Drive.

The "Timmy" pedal is pretty transparent. I used to love it, but it's all over now.
(I bought an EarthDrive. Actually, I bought 2 of them. And a Solar Flare)

im really digging this noisekick fx double pedal - klon on the first side, analogman king of tone hi gain on the other - very jerry when fed into a jerry rig
Which pedal are you referring to? Thanks. (I see the "Sit In" has a boost, overdrive and reverb - not sure if you're referring to a custom pedal or something I haven't seen from them yet)

Not too long ago all his pedal were just on reverb, and there was a couple dual boost pedals for a while. Im sure if you just email him and say, hey can you make me one of those badass yellow dual boosts thats a klon on 1 side and ALGMan hi gain king of tone on the other and hell send you a bill. Mine was expensive like 200 bucks, but again, the best distortion / clean boost pedal ive ever had.
