Minotaur (Klonยฎ Centaur)

Minotaur, the Helix model of a Klonยฎ Centaur

Recorded using a Les Paul with Burstbucker pickups into a Twin Reverb model with the normal input. The overdrive pedal and amp are set at default settings. A touch of reverb added for depth.

The Klon Centaur is a guitar overdrive pedal developed by Bill Finnegan between 1990 and 1994. The pedals were made manually by Finnegan. The Centaur is characterized as a "transparent" overdrive, meaning it adds gain to the signal without significantly altering the tone of the guitar.

Depending on the settings of the control knobs, the pedal can act mostly as a clean boost, adding mostly volume and minimal coloring to the sound. This can be used to drive the input valve stage of the amplifier to use the characteristic distortion sound of an overdriven guitar amp. Alternatively (or additionally) the controls can be set to distort the sound signal in the pedal, where two germanium diodes can perform waveform clipping (see clipping (audio)). The "gain" knob is a double potentiometer (a "dual-ganged gain pot"), which controls bass and middle frequencies. Other knobs are treble and volume.

Vicky Blues

This is a Pod Go patch that is based off a popular blues patch I have for the Helix. It's great for high-flying electric blues.

Rockerverb

New for Helix 3.1, the Rockerveb is a very cool and versatile amp for rock n roll. Try this tone in place of a Marshall for a crunchier, fatter tone.

Mike Ness Tone

This is the HX Stomp version of this tone - there's also a version for the Helix available here by selecting the Helix as your device. This is a very good approximation of Mike Ness's Tone on the Social Distortion albums. The recipe is iconic - a dirt pedal into a Bassman head, then into Marshall cabinets. The sample clip was played on a legit Les Paul with P90 pickups - you need this to get the real deal.

Twin City

Nice Fender Twin, for Hawaiian or Country sounds. There's a Minotaur lurking in there somewhere, in case you need it.

Green Day Dookie

Good tone match for the Dookie album by Green Day. I added the Goatkeeper, although it wasn't used on the album. It helps for some of their future material. Billie Joe used a Strat copy with a humbucker on the album, try that here.
