Eight Two Zero Drive

What do you do if you want the sweet, sweet magic of a Klon Centaur in your chain, but you don't want a Klon Centaur in your chain? Here's your answer.

Touted as a Klon-killer, this circuit certainly doesn't disappoint, though whether you prefer it over the mighty one is down to personal taste.

Just as dynamic, every bit as versatile and with just as much magic on tap. From light, clean boost to medium drive - this is a perfect partnership with any tube amp.

The original is a three-knob affair, utilising a dual-gang pot to control the levels of clean boost and drive. We've added the option of going for a four-knobber with separate controls for those. More tweaking than is necessary? You decide.

The PCB is designed for vertical-mount pots to slot straight in. These have a round shaft, so take that into consideration when buying knobs - you'll need some that fit with a grub-screw. You can of course wire up 'normal' pots with splined shafts.
