"I have been an acoustic and electric guitar player for over 25 years. Several years ago I became interested in electronics. This led to guitar repair and modification soon followed by effect building. I have built and sold hundreds of effects and enjoy passing on quality, boutique effects to fellow players for a fair price." - Ken Dalton
The 'Lil MO is RimRock's legendary Mythical Overdrive - a low gain overdrive / boost based on the legendary Klon Centaur - just in a vertical, pedalboard-friendly enclosure. Each MO is handmade in Oregon by Ken Dalton himself, and they just exude quality from the moment you pick one up. We really love the overall look and pedalboard friendly size.
To skip right to the point, these pedals sound phenomenal! We've tried a lot of "Klon Klones", in addition to spending time with the real deal, and these are as close to the real thing as we've encountered. This circuit excels at fattening single coil tones or pushing an already cranked amp in an incredibly sweet, smooth, compressed overdrive.
What's especially hep about the 'Lil MO is that Ken builds them with two different clipping options, selectable via a mini-toggle switch on the top. To our ears, you get the option of classic Klon / mid-drenched boost tones - or - a slightly higher headroom, "bigger" sounding version of the Klon. Subtle to be sure, but it's there and a cool to have the option.
As you can tell, we love the 'Lil Mo. If you're looking to add that Klon magic to your rig, do yourself a favor and click the add-to-cart button - you won't regret it!
