Let’s see I think December of 2016? A long time ago. I didn’t go for any options. In retrospect the high gain on the OD side would work for me too, but the stock low gain sounds fantastic.
I’ll be honest, I have kind of lost interest in OD pedals over the last couple of years. I have had the Purple Plexi on my board for the past year and it also works really well.
The KOT really shines with a loud amp. I can’t wait to get into our rehearsal space and really cut loose. I hit my neighbors pretty hard last night, it was really hard to turn down. I love this pedal into my HW AC15. The Vibrolux loves it too, and each amp still sounds so different with the pedal set exactly the same. Haven’t gotten to the Brown Deluxe yet but I’m sure it will be pretty darn good.
While a turned down clean amp doesn’t do the OD side any favors, the clean boost smokes on a nice spanky clean amp.
When I got my Prince I was also afraid that it wouldn't work for me and would not get the hype around it. Then I gigged with it and got such good comments on tone... sold all my other drive pedals. And bought myself another Prince in waiting for the king.
