    Product Description

    This pedal will not work with a 9V battery, and requires a 9V DC power supply (not included).

    This may be the smallest and most affordable pedal based on the legendary Klon available today! The Tone City Bad Horse is a musical overdrive that captures the essence of the iconic gold pedal, fitting the circuit into an ergonomic mini pedal enclosure.

    If you're after a super-sweet overdrive without spending the crazy amounts that some people pay for the original, the Bad Horse is an amazing choice!

    Versatile Range of Drives

    This small yellow pedal has a lot to live up to, being based on the highly-desirable Klon circuit. However, the Bad Horse blows away any expectations you may have of small pedals, especially when it's based on such a complex and admired overdrive.

    The Tone City Bad Horse has enough grit to take you into a medium-gain crunch on its own, but it is really in its element when used in conjunction with an already driven amp. The slight mid-range boost that it offers will help you to cut through in a mix, and the extra gain that it delivers will push your guitar's sustain to a new level.

    Small & Portable

    All Tone City pedals are built in a micro pedal format, which not only helps to save precious real-estate on your pedalboard, but also keeps your bank balance healthy thanks to their amazingly low price. But don't worry, you don't lose any quality when going down to this small size or cost.

    The controls all use high-quality components, and with true bypass switching, your signal will stay as clean and pure as possible.

    This lacks just a bit of gain, compared to the Klon itself. Still a great sounding pedal - especially for the money
