A Klon uses two TL072 op-amp ICs (these could be substituted for any standard single op-amp) and a charge pump IC (to double the internal voltage from 9V to somewhere close to 18V)I had a look on the inside of the voyager and the klone. I don't know anything about building pedals. The first common thing I see between the 2 is the use of 3 chips on the inside. Don't even know if they're the same kind.
I ordered one just a few days ago and should get it on Friday. I don't know anything about Tim, Timmy, or Klon (I've never had the pleasure of owning any of them), but I plan to chime in once I've played with it for a while. Thanks to everyone for their reviews and comments.I am glad this thread keeps growing with more opinions and feedback - that was the goal. Keep the reviews and opinons coming guys!
Very interested in this review as I am on the Falcon list.ChaseTMP said:I just bought one and should be receiving it tomorrow. I had waited and waited for the KTR; ended up buying a PCE Aluminum Falcon and realized why a lot of guitarists get worked into a lather about what Klon-based pedals can add to your tone. I liked the AF so much; that I wasn't turning it off and needed something to fill the actual "boost" role, in a similar tonal palette. I considered another Falcon, but size and the builder's increased back-log, lead me to the Voyager. I'll be curious to see how the two Klones play in the chain and where I decide to place them in regards to their respective buffer and lack there-of.
Be really interested to hear a response from the builder on this.mmcm4 said:I believe the Voyager is a Klon clone with different clipping diodes. The inside is gooped so it's hard to be 100% sure.
Honestly either boost or overdrive depending on the songs and how I am using my other drive pedals. Lately, it has been used most for a more medium gain overdrive and the Morning Glory is taking care of the boost / low gain stuff.mcdes said:Mine should be arriving this week (nz), so am anticipating!
For those that have a voyager, are you using more as a boost, or drive??
And how's the drive on it?? Burgs demo, though he's using gear I don't have, sounds pretty good.
