By cramming both the circuits of the Gold and Silver Klon overdrives into one nifty little enclosure, NUX have effectively enabled players to access the characteristics of not just one, but two of the best overdrive pedals available on the market. Although the Horseman only features controls for treble, output and gain, the unit boasts a momentary footswitch to switch from Gold to Silver mode, increasing the voltage up to 18V and providing extra gain and headroom.
The NUX Horseman also gives players the option to choose from either True or Buffered Bypass modes, and acts as an extremely affordable alternative to the original Klon Centaurs from the ’90s – which currently sit around the $2500 mark on Reverb. NUX have also penned a pretty comprehensive blog post offering an insight as to how their engineers went about creating the Horseman, which you can read here.
NUX are distributed in the local market through Pro Music Australia.
