Greenchild Amplification‘s most recent design is the Klazo Drive, an overdrive featuring a unique design based on “current driven transconductance amplifier topology with floating diodes” that deliver musical clipping across the entire frequency spectrum.

Check out the videos below.

Our Klazo Drive is a smooth sounding overdrive designed to dynamically transform your guitar tone without harsh fizz. Low order harmonic laden overtones abound in this tube-like, transparent workhorse.

Unlike many common opamp based overdrives that are equipped with harsh sounding clipping diodes, the Klazo Drive utilizes finely tuned MOSFET arrays to deliver musical signal clipping across the audible frequency spectrum. Several gain stages are cascaded and combined in parallel to achieve organic overdrive without nasty intermodulation distortion.

Klazo Drive not only delivers authentic sounding overdrive, but she dynamically responds to pick attack and feels similar to a real amp. This pedal is as close to an amp-in-a-box that one can get at 9V, and responds beautifully to your guitar’s volume control.

Equipped with an active dual band (bass and treble), 2nd order tone stack with powerful 15 dB of signal cut or boost, Klazo makes for an extremely versatile tone machine. One will be hard pressed not to find their own unique sound inside this pedal.

The Klazo Drive is destined to transform your tone! Any guitar. Any amp. Any venue.
