I don’t think there is a single pedal out there that hasn’t been cloned at least once. And if your pedal comes with a 4-year waiting list and used prices in the $1,000 plus range you are pretty much asking for someone to produce a clone.
To illustrate I present to you, the King of Drive. I’ve only had an hour or so to play around with it but so far I like it. By using the dip switches inside you can have either side setup as a boost, an OD, or a distortion. Out of the box this one was set as a boost and an OD and going into my Katana 100 they both sound pretty good, not $1,000 worth of good, so I’m glad I only paid $80 for it. I dunno, maybe once I’ve had a chance to live with it for a while I’ll find the other $920 worth of tone.
It’s a shameless clone, there is no disputing that, but at least they are not trying to fool anyone and made their name the most prominent text on the pedal.
