Managed to land a King of Tone at the emporium, I am totally blown away and disappointed at the same time.... Blown away by the fact that it is one of the most balanced pedals I have ever played. This one had the high gain modification performed to both sides, and I have to say, it's just about perfect! The overdrive is really smooth, musical, and has a wonderful amount of clarity. The clean boost is very close in relation to the overdrive (perhaps the differences are more obvious without the high gain mods), however at higher gain settings, much rounder with a touch less hair. I really enjoy the distortion, especially when its on the yellow and being fed by an Overdrive on the red side. Disappointed....I have a few BB preamps, a stock, an Andy Timmons, and a Mid Boost...and if that wasn't overlap enough...the King of Tone basically beat the BB at its own game EXCEPT for output...the BB has quite a bit more on tap. Back to the boxes the BBs go and back on the shelf. Great job Mike! I think I have another year or so before my name is at the top of the list, but I'm already excited to scoop another one up!
