SKU: ARCHERIKON

    Product Description

    The Klon Centaur is a beloved pedal that is in high demand. Unfortunately getting your hands on one can be tough as prices are high and stock is low. So companies like J Rockett have taken the initiative to start building new versions of these pedals that are as close to the original as humanly possible. First they released the Archer which looks to mimic the old Silver Klon Centaur and it quickly became a massive success. Now they have released a previously thought to be impossible pedal with the Archer Ikon.

    The First Of Its Kind

    This new version of the Archer clones the much loved Gold Klon Centuar which had 2 diodes that were unmarked making it impossible to clone. Now J Rockett have not only found out what those diodes were but they have also put them to use in building the first 100% part for part remake of the original Gold Klon Centaur.

    Gold or Silver?

    There is a constant debate with Klon lovers over which one is best, in reality it all comes down to preference. The main difference between these pedals comes in the compression and higher end EQ. The Archer Ikon has a tad more compression in the midrange and has less high end presence so if you found the original Archer a bit too barky in the high midrange or a bit too bright then switching to the Archer Ikon might just give you the dreamy Klon tone you have always been looking for.

    Here's what J Rockett say about the Archer Ikon

    The Archer Ikon is sort of a 2 in one pedal. It can be used as just a clean boost by turning the gain all the way down. As you introduce gain it will attenuate the clean signal but there is a magical blend in between that you will find. Please experiment!!

    This is the most versatile overdrive I have ever had. Not only does the gain offer a wide - and always clear - range, the tone actually does something! Quite a lot, actually. The video on this v the silver model v an original Klon were very useful. I chose this one as it seemed a tad warmer, better suited to my mainly humbucker sound. But I would say I have found some great tones also with a Tele, Strat & Ricky, so that ‘best ever’ rating.

    For me, is it a fantastic overdrive pedal!! It has a kind of warm 70s rock n' roll tone which I love so much!

    Mr. Christopher Baines29th Jan 2017

    Seen videos and demos on the Internet and wasn't sure if it was going to be something I'd go for, but after trying it out knew it was going on my board.

    Smooth overdrive. You can dial in as much drive as you want and it doesn't get muddy. I've tried countless overdrives and this is the smoothest one I have found yet. I use it with an Electro Harmonix Soul Food and a couple of other pedals and the tone is first class.

    I have a similar pedal, which is another Klon type, but the Archer Ikon is a little 'grittier' which works really well with my Strat's single coils. Finally I have managed to sort out a "one Pedal" system that works well with both Channels of my amp, giving Clean/Grit/Overdrive Crunch and Sustained Drive, without needing to do much more than adjust the guitar's controls. I find I don't need a second overdrive stacked with the Ikon and can use the amp more too! Great so far!
