The White Horse by Will Sledge FX is a transparent overdrive/boost inspired by the Klon KTR. This is a very good drive and absolutely nails that classic Klon type tone. It can be used as either a boost or a drive, or as something just a bit in between.
In the video above, Nick and Brian walk through the pedal in a variety of settings, and even compare it to an 808 style drive, and an Electro Harmonix Soul Food, which is a budget Klon style pedal.
