There is usually quite aÂ debate about pedals and tone. One thread that I have followed recently involved the use ofÂ Boss pedals and whether there were any particular advantages to using boutique pedals from a tone perspective.
For those that may not be in the know, the holy grail of overdrive pedals is the Klon Centaur. The originals are generally available on eBay for somewhere around $1,500 – 2,000. That is a lot of money to spend on an overdrive pedal.
But, as this video demonstrates, there really is very little difference in tone between the Klon and a Boss pedal. And very little difference between the Klon and a few other pedal choices.
Perhaps I need to give up this quest for tone and buy a bunch of Boss pedals.
