StewMac Ghost Drive Pedal Kit

More than a "klone"—it's the closest we've ever seen to the real thing! Few pedals reach mythical status like the Klon Centaur Professional Overdrive. We scoured the world for the EXACT right components to recreate this "holy grail" circuit. 

Considered the finest transparent overdrive ever, the original Klon is shrouded in mystery, epoxy, and hype—but amazingly, it delivers. It's a guitar player's dream come true: saturated tube tone from your amp at a reasonable volume. It doesn't change the character of your amp, you get just the right amount of overdrive without losing your unique tone. It's relied on by countless players like Joe Perry, Mike McCready, Joe Bonamassa, John Mayer, Nels Cline and more.

Don't buy your next pedal—build it!
Original Klon's are selling for up to $10,000 (and they're still going up)! Many big pedal makers make their own "klones", but they never quite get it right. With this kit you'll be hand-wiring every component to the board, just like the originals. Many believe the hand-wired circuit has a huge impact on the tone of this pedal. And…the black epoxy is optional.

All the right components
We dug deep to find the identical pair of 1N34A germanium diodes just like the original. Many claim these diodes were the heart of the original Klon and why so many of the imitators fall short. 

This pedal is extremely easy to use: just gain, treble, and output. The gain is where the magic is by adding sweet saturation and harmonics while retaining the character of your amp. The treble acts as a boost or cut, allowing you to dial in the perfect mid-range for your tone.

Designed with the beginning pedal builder in mind
We include everything you need to build your new pedal:

  • 40 page step-by-step instructions written for the first time builder
  • Top quality, high tolerance components from resistors to switch
  • Road-worthy rugged metal enclosure with all holes pre-drilled
  • Bare or powder coated white finish
  • 3PDT breakout board for low noise
  • Input, output, and power jacks rear mounted for easy cable routing
  • Buffered bypass just like the original
  • Custom printed labels

Nobody does instructions like StewMac
This is a fun weekend project where you'll learn a lot and get a legendary pedal. We left no stone unturned, you'll see every solder joint and resistor value to make sure your build is perfect from start to finish. And if you get stuck, our team is here to help! Be proud every time you step on the custom pedal that you built.

Make your pedal your way
It's never been easier to have an inspiring sounding and looking pedal. We include labels for all of the knobs for a professional look. Paint your own raw metal enclosure or choose a powder coated enclosure that is ready to put on your board now. Gold, silver, horsie or no? It's all up to you. Take the first step to customize your sound.

Powered by a 9 volt battery or 9 volt power supply with a 2.1mm negative-center barrel, available separately. 

Battery saver! The included stereo input jack acts as a switch for the battery so that you do not drain power unless a cable is plugged in.
