    Hi guys!

    My Klon Centaur takes up to much real estate on my pedal board so I'm thinking of replacing it with something smaller, preferably in an MXR sized box.

    Thing is I love my Klon and don't really want to remove it from the board but I need another dirt box on it.

    Any suggestions for a smaller clean boost that sounds great and fattens up the sound? No dirt needed at all, just clean clean boost.

    Lovepedal deluxe 60?

    Thanks!

    I've been using a Keeley Katana Boost for over a year - it works great and sounds great.

    For myself alone and with tone and oneness, Mike

    I had chosen the Xotic RC boost as my top pick, but found a deal on a Luxury Drive. Very happy with it so far.

    My advice don't get rid of the Klon, you'll regret when it's gone!!!

    There are a few Klon clones out there I'm sure they are all good in certain areas but the Klon is a one off & would never think about selling mine!!

    Yes it's not small but it's not too big I believe it's about the same size as a Fulltone Fulldrive 2?

    But if you do sell the Pro Analog gear is very impressive but yet again not that small either!!!

    Catatlinbread Sadrado Poblano Picoso - does the fat boost thing as well as a Klon and takes up WAY less space, plus you could buy three of them for the price of ONE Klon, AND you don't have to wait in line for 12-16 weeks.

    Thanks for the advice guys!
    I'm never selling my Klon, It's an early one in silver with the centaur graphic.
    I'm just gonna retire it for now.

    I think Im gonna check out the RC booster, I kind of like the idea of separate Bass treble, and gain knob.


    Thanks for the help!

    Katana,
    Deluxe 60
    GGG Fat Blaster
    BYOC Tri Booster
    or even a Zendrive to really give you good control over the tone

    +1 on the Keeley Katana Boost. It is a completely clean boost and it has a second function. When you pull out the volume knob, it adds some nice, light grit. The Katana has an unbelievable amount of boost available.

    Man,
    if you dig the Klon you should just surender the real estate on your board. The Klon works real well in certain setups and I don't think there's another pedal out there that does the "Klon" thing. I know for a fact the Fat Boost doesn't do it as I owned both at the same time..
    If it works for you , it works...
    I wouldn't pull my Echoczar off my board to put a smaller delay on there for space reasons cause it's just too good.. my $0.02
