    i'm way in the pro-klon camp, but i have yet to find a OD that does not stack well wth a klon, but the best I've tried are Tim, eternity, and OCD

    I stack both an Eternity and a Timmy with the Klon and they both sound fantastic. I'd say Timmy if I had to choose one

    Yeah, I was thinking a Timmy...But then again what doesn't a Timmy sound great with? Everything I've tried works great with it including the Eternity, the Zen, the OCD, the COT 50 , the BB preamp, AC Booster etc etc

    I have stacked it with everything from the Timmy to an old 808 and it all sounds good.

    My current fave is the Tone Freak Abunai (his 808 version, a little more TS than the Abunai 2 but just as killer).

    As long as you put the Klon after another od, it will do the job.
    Why not before? I should say maybe due to it's buffer, I dunno, but in my experience it's better at the end of the dirt chain.

    Klon into OCD is my favourite lead sound to date.

    BB Preamp into a Klon is killer, as is an Analogman Beano Boost.

    This is my set up.

    I've been using a Timmy into a Klon for a long time now. I run the Timmy as a low gain OD and the Klon as a very slightly dirty lead boost. I've tried a bunch of other things in both positions but I always seem to return to this combination as my core rhythm/lead tone.

    The Telenordia TA-100>Klon combo has proven to be a nice alternative too...

    I tried my Klon with a TIM and zendrive and it was always a toss up depending which guitar I played in deciding which I liked into the Klon.

    I sold the TIM thinking about replacing with a timmy but Ive also wondered about two Klons.

    I've put my Hot Silicon after the Klon and got some amazing lead sounds :)

    I think so too. The buffer placement is part of it, but the bi-amp design of the klon and other details may have something to do with it also. When I had mine it killed at the end of my OD chain. I am going to have to buy another....
