From March 2020 on, the Decibelics Big Klone will only be ordered directly from me through PayPal or a private sale on Reverb, following a waitlist. If you want to be added to the list, please send me an email guillem @ decibelics.com with your shipping address (+ phone number) and the Decibelics Big Klone model(s) you are interested in. I will get back to you within the next 48h to confirm you secured a spot. Thanks for your understanding!
Made only occasionally or upon request, Decibelics Big Vintage Klone is like having an original, discontinued gold Klon Centaur without paying the high price of the originals. Same shape, dimensions, and color as the first golden Klon Centaur, and equipped with some of the NOS components of the acclaimed Decibelics Golden Horse – the only clone in the market based on a specific unit of original Gold Klon Centaur from 2001.
The Decibelics Big Vintage Klone also is, together with the Decibelics Golden Horse, the only clone that undergoes an exhaustive final test with an original gold Klon Centaur prior to be shipped to you.
As if that were not enough, it carries an internal diode clipping switch that lets you select between Germanium (Vintage, original distortion, soft and creamy) and silicon/LED diodes (Modern distortion, with more gain, more cutting)
2019 Model features a new, improved gorgeous blue PCB with on-board Bass Switch that gives an extra “Punch” to the original Centaur sound on the Gain side, and a redesigned power section that includes a battery snap clip with auto shut-off and a 3.5mm DC jack and its adaptor, for maximum vintage accuracy.
Regarding components, the Decibelics Big Vintage Klone not only mounts the highest possible quality, relying on the best brands (Amphenol Jacks, Footswitch and Alpha potentiometers, Nichicon Fine Gold electrolytic …) but it even incorporates some of the N.O.S. (New Old Stock) components of the original, such as the Panasonic ECQ Series capacitors or Germanium 1N34A Made in USA diodes. To put the icing on the cake, it even assembles the same combination of carbon and metal film resistors. All this is mounted on a special Decibelics-exclusive PCB board, of course without “goop” or “black paste” above: there’s nothing to hide here, and such a perfect beauty deserves to be admired.
External vintage-style 3.5mm jack to modern Boss-Style 2.1mm 9VDC adapter included.Actual top graphic is Open Tail - You know what I mean.
