    Looks like they pulled the original video and replaced it. I put the new one up above. Mr. Excane made one as well...

    The wording of the ad copy and the sound lead me to believe this is a Klon clone for bass. I wonder if I am right or not.

    My impression is that it began with that, probably derived from their Architect pedal. Sounds much more versatile than any of the Klones that I've owned (which I've always liked).

    Cool. Thanks. My Dunwich Shalashaska is still on my board after many weeks (a miracle btw) so I'm good for Klones for now, but this one does sound great.

    Think I'll stick with my Broughton Alex-1 preamp and Southampton Fifth Gear V2 OD for the time being. The demos don't have me hearing voices. At least not so far.

    Love to hear a TBer's opinion who owns one. Looks to be a robust little pedal. And anything based on a Klon vibe is usually promising.

    Promising yes, but any bass specific Klon has to really pump up the lows. The Klon is so mid and treble focused. Killface Foxpedal was nice although not trebly enough. This one definitely has promise.
