You've likely already heard of the fabled Klon Centaur. It's known for it's incredibly transparent sound that only compliments that sound of your guitar and valve amp. The problem is actually getting hold of one. A lot of clones of the Centaur exist, but not many that are tuned for bass guitar.
Fortunately, Foxpedal's Killface is great at providing the natural kind of overdrive you'd expect. It also has a few other nifty little enhancements like a a switch that allows you to select from a few different hard clipping options, and an overdrive switch that lets you choose a mode that gives you a smoother, more immediate breakup.
These all help you get a lot closer to imitating the sound of true power valve breakup for that powerful blues and rock bass tone.
Foxpedal's Todd Billow and his team build all their pedals by hand in Richland, Washington with absolute top quality components, meaning your pedal is built to last. So you don't have to worry about it giving out on you.
Here's what Foxpedal say about the Killface
The Killface is a Bass-tuned version of our popular Kingdom overdrive, a transparent overdrive that adds unicorns and fairy dust to your signal. Joking aside, it really brings to life your guitar and your tube amplifier in ways you've never experienced.
The Killface isn't quite a Klone in the strictest sense. The circuit design is very similar to the original Klon Centaur and retains many of its characteristics while including some enhancements. Unlike the Klon, the entire audio chain is run on a higher voltage spread allowing for more headroom. A clipping switch has been added to allow for different hard clipping options. An overdrive switch allows you to add soft clipping to the feedback path of the IC, allowing for earlier and smoother breakup. Finally, the true-bypass footswitch allows you to keep your signal chain completely clean when its not engaged.
