    I just built this pedal(took me about 4~5 hours) ...I have many other Tube Screamer type Pedals(Boos Blues Driver, etc.), but I have never ever played around with a Klon, so I have no reference of how accurate to the Original this Clone is

    ...what I will say is that I am VERY impressed with the sounds out of the $45 kit!

    here are some Photos ;)

    sorry, no unboxing pics ...I was too hasty to get the ball rolling

    I went ahead and junked the cheap wire that was supplied and went with some great quality stuff I had laying around

    All done!

    Nice. I have a kit still waiting for assembly myself. Which did you use, BYOC?

    It's just a generic Chinese Kit.

    ...I'm probably gonna sleep with the pedal under my pillow, I'm in love! Lol

    1487379305026.jpg I have the same one in silver. Very nice sounding pedal. There's a couple of reviews on YouTube comparing against a real Klon. Close enough for me.

    really? I have been looking for the comparison videos and couldn't find any for this Klone.

    It's nice to see somebody had good luck with this kit. I ordered one a couple years ago and when I got it it was full of the wrong parts and I had to source them elsewhere because they wouldn't believe me. The circuit works great but I ended up with two charge pump chips, one opamp, wrong resistors and caps. Never had that problem with any other builds I ever did.

    I wound up building this from Jed's Peds in the UK. It's become my favorite pedal:
