This is one of the best overdrive pedals I've played through. Mind you I've never actually played through an actual Klon before so I can't reference it as a comparison other than the sound on some YouTube videos. It doesn't matter because this pedal delivers an awesome open overdrive tone along with buttery compression. The construction is quite sturdy. The pedal weighs a lot for its small size. I went to Sam Ash to purchase a Fuzz pedal which I brought and tried the Archer Ikon out of curiosity. The sound stayed in my head so I came back a few days later and purchased it. It actually sounded better through my own rig so I wasn't disappointed.
