    The Saucy Box or Sugar Drive are already there.


    Only difference between the Sugar Drive and Saucy Box and a more accurate clone like a Tumnus is that the MXR and Way Huge have a flat midrange where as the Tumnus has a slightly more open midrange. Otherwise same taper on the Sugar Drive vs the Tumus IMO shootinh out side by side.


    I for 50 bucks less I much preffered the sugar drive over all and the nuetral midrange did it for me. More transparent and great tone.

    Both are awesome but if your looking for a good Klone either the Tumnus or MXR Sugar Drive would be on top of my list.

    Forget about the Sould food, Chinese clones those sound close but no cigar, and others costing 5 times as much like 400-500$ are just a rip off IMO.

    Sugar Drive or Tumnus IMO.

    Is a klone without the mids bump really a klone ?

    I would say yes. Just a modified Klone.

    IMO better.

    Thats why I chose the Sugar Drive over the Tumnus.

    I feel regular tumnus is where its at if your going for an OG Klone tone. More straightforward and easy to dial in. hassle free.

    Tumnus has something different (more) in the lows, to me, though. But it's excellent for sure !

    I like the mid bump in a klone and it's kind of the signature of a klone to me. Like the TS.

    A Klon has a very slight bump in the low mids but nothing at all like a TS and it's mid hump. I play a real Silver Klon at least once or twice a month at my buddies studio and he also has several 808's around as well and I can tell you a real Klon is nothing at all like the mid hump of a TS.

    I wasn't saying they have the same mids, I was meaning they both have something typical in the mids that, to me, define their respective tone signatures.
