View Full Version : Menatone KOTB: Dirty Cleans
I had to post this after spending about 3 hours this afternoon with just my LP and KOTB. I have been in love with this thing since I got it, but I've never really spent all that much time with the lower gain sounds.
Today I played the whole time with the gain at about 9:00 and the voicing switch set to the plexi bass input. Man oh man this thing feels like an amp and the dirty cleans are simply awesome---especially when I dig in.
Anyway, one more great thing about this truly excellent pedal.

Yep. With Brian's pedals, you don't need to go and crank the gain full like with a lot of others. The great sounds in them are usually with the gain backed off a good ways. I found that with my KOTB like you did. It was when I backed the gain off that it really brought it to it's full potential.
Good to hear I have one on the way. I've been GASing for some later Superlead/JMP grind lately.

Try it with Workingman's Blue. Even "better."
Then hit 'em with their internal boosts, or external boxes like MK II, Treble booster, even zendrive.

I just got one of these also, and I love it. I haven't had much tiem to experiment with it yet, but love what I've heard so far. I'll be gigging with it a couple of times next weekend, so I'm looking forward to seeing what it can do.
My KOTB just arrived I havent played it yet but I put a battery in to see if it works and the LEDs are bright. The blue one nearly blinded me! :worried
Cant wait to try it out.:JAM

You have to get a new Howie if you haven't already, and I have to get a KOTB. I gigged 2x this weekend with my Texaverb and the Howie. Amazing pedal (and amp).
I do need a Howie. You're exactly right about that ...

I've got both the Howie and KotB and love them! More on the way soon.
And I'm watching like a hawk for the KarKrash release. :D
