Nux Horseman Mini Core 2 in 1 Guitar Overdrive Effects Pedal
The Klon Centaur Overdrive pedal was one of the most sought after Overdrive Pedals in the '90s. It was a transparent overdrive know for its transparent tone, adding gain to the signal without altering the tone output.
With the Horseman 2 in 1 Overdrive, there would no longer be the need to spend a lot nor to have to search for the limited Klon Centaur. It features 2 modes: Gold and Silver. The Gold Mode mimics the transparent tone which is predecessor is known for and the Silver Mode for the powered version with an extended gain range.
The circuitry of the Horseman will allow you to get more harmonics in your tone and acting either as a boost to your clean tone or to give you that natural distorted tone. The Gain Knob also acts as a double potentiometer which controls the bass and middle frequencies
The Horseman also has an optional bypass mode. You can choose between True Bypass to keep your signal untouched when the pedal is off or Buffer Bypass to have no signal loss especially if you are using more than 4 pedals.

It's very small, and VERY brightI've found this pedal is REALLY bright, not something I noticed in all the review & demo videos I've watched. I've used it with a peavey classic 30 and a joyo sweet baby 5 watt amp; with a les paul and a strat. The joyo amp is a warm & dark sounding beastie, especially with the les paul (in a good way, it's a great little amp), and only has a volume control and this pedal really brightens it up. I have the tone on pedal set very low (at about 8 o'clock) and it's still quite bright. But with the gain set around 3 o'clock it drives both my valve amps into a nice breakup. I don't care for the "shine" sound of this thing, just a little too bright with my gear. I've also run it before a few other pedals (big muff, tone bender, tone machine, fuzz face) and it worked will with most to push them a little further. It's only slightly bigger than a little ditto looper (it's tiny) which is cool. I'm happy with it so far, and it's earned itself a place on my pedalboard (bumped a tubescreamer off, which it too mid-heavy for me). If it lives past the warranty period I'll be happy.
On leather steeds we ride!You cannot make this pedal sound bad. I absolutely, positively love it. I plugged into my Artist cremetone amp, pressed the pedal and was instantly smiling from ear to ear...then I turned on the Silverado mode and was nearly thrown from my saddle. In all seriousness this pedal is punching miles ahead with its quality, sound, playability and price. This is definitely another outstanding pedal from Nux.
Great bang for buckI have a few Klon clones, and this one is as good or better than the more expensive pedals. You can use it to boost your signal or increase the gain for some serious overdriven rock tones. It does not take up much space on a pedalboard, and the option of silver/gold modes makes it even better than other similar pedals. I liked it so much, I bought another...and likely a few more for my other pedalboards. The build quality is great too.
