NUX | Horseman Overdrive Pedal, Full Size
About this deal
Since a centaur is half human, half horse, and the NUX NOD-1 Horseman Overdrive is half gold, half silver - it could be argued this is more of a centaur than the real thing. Dial in these two modes with a straightforward control layout that minimizes time fiddling, so you can spend more time revelling in superior drive tones: As such, unlike most of the pedals listed here (and also unlike the original Klon Centaur) – the Oxblood has a very wide gain range. It can go from an open and transparent vintage sounding drive, through to a heavy overdrive that verges on the sound of fuzz.

But if you are looking for a Klon clone with a bit of a bonus, The Tumnus Deluxe is for you. It is a faithful clone of the original Klon Centaur, but they have added a few extra features (like a three-band EQ) to boost the usability of the pedal.

So as clones go, the JRAD Archer is very faithful to the original – both in its circuitry and design. You see, everyone expected this to sound “not very good” but instead it sounds extremely close to the originals. By holding down the footswitch you swap from gold to silver mode which has slightly higher gain, what a fantastic way to go about something that others have never done.This offering is a solid affordable choice, hand-built by a Washington DC, passionate company that presents itself as the “Robin Hood of the pedal world.”
