Studio Daydream HMP SILVER KCM-OD

The Studio Daydream HMP Silver KCM-OD is yet another addition to the numerous family of the Klon Centaur clones. This particular device hailing from Japan gets really good reviews and it’s manufactured by a company that’s been around since 2008 and is dedicated to high quality dirt boxes. It also buids a gold version Klone (the KCM-OD Gold) that fetches for over $300.

What you get is an authentic recreation of the original Silver Klon with the exact same controls, delivering the famous transparent boost to low gain overdrive. The circuit employs a 27V booster circuit utilizing a charge pump IC, while careful selection of parts and design results in an extremely low noise.

We added this pedal to our article about the Best Klon Clones.
