EHX Soul Food....

Straight off....Electro-Harmonix say's this is the nearest thing most guitarists are going to get to the   KLON CENTAUR....


"Tone aficionados kept telling EHX's Mike Matthews about a pedal that had achieved a lot of buzz because it was only obtainable at an exorbitant price. That pedal was the KLON CENTAUR.
A believer in bringing great tools to starving musicians, Mike tasked his trusty team to create an affordable alternative, and that is how the SOUL FOOD was cooked up.

The SOUL FOOD delivers transparent overdrive with great touch and response. Its circuitry features boosted power rails to provide abundant headroom and increased definition. Best of all, you don't have to be a rock star to own one!"


I now have one and over the next couple of day's I'll see what it sounds like....put it up against my other pedal's and see if this....shall we say "Budget" pedal....that set me back all of £49.99 from GAK here in the UK....is as good as they think it is....it is after all based on The KLON CENTAUR....I'll let you know....


In the box together with the pedal you also get a Power Supply....This is not looking good is it....



Anybody hoping to see something like the inside of a Big Muff will be disappointed....I don't know why but I did and am a little....lol. The pedals case is standard EHX but the battery's snap connecter is the only thing I can see that let's the pedal down....


The internal True Bypass/Buffer switch....does it really need to be on the Electro-Harmonix version....Well it's there if it's needed....





If this pedal is half as good as the KLON is supposed to be I might have to get one of these ARC pedals....k.j.
