I have a silver Klon that Bill Finnegan built for me around 2004. Have always loved the pedal, but it's huge and I'm no longer keen on gigging in dive bars with a $1500 pedal. So a few months ago I asked our very own @pickdropper to build a Minitaur for me. Having done extensive side-by-side comparison over the last couple of months, all I can say is that it sounds and functions exactly like the other pedal. Exactly the same. And I'm really friggin picky about this stuff. It's also about 1/4 the size of the Klon and I now have room for another couple of pedals on my board. Couldn't be happier.
