Here was my answer: https://thegenerationofmusic.wordpr...i-learned-to-stop-worrying-and-love-the-klon/ I've tried the EP-Boost in the past, and also a straight up mini-buffer. No go. The Klon KTR? That's the ticket. I might feel a bit guilty having it play such a background role at the prices it used to go for, but not any longer. So far, this is the winner to cut through the goop blanket formed by layers of chorus, vibrato, tremolo, flanger and delay - and all old bucket brigadey analog effects at that. And this, through a Hello Kitty Squire Strat into a Fender Bronco (albeit a drip edge silverface Fender Vibro Champ in disguise). So how about you all? Stuff like the TIM and RAT I keep for chugging away at overdriven parts when the modulation/time-based stuff is out of the loop, boosting each other and the amp to bits. That little black box at the beginning is the mini buffer that used to anchor the modulation loop.
