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!
We got some of the first batch when they came out in very early 2014 and saw that the clipping diodes were not quite right. We did a mod to switch between the stock ones and the correct germanium diodes but there was no difference. The diodes do nothing until the drive is cranked up anyway, and the KLON circuit is not as good sounding at higher drive levels, so we decided not to offer the mod as it's a waste of money.
