Klon Centaur vs. Tone Monk Ankh ( Preamp boost shootout) (11:40)
A comparison of the Tone Monk Ankh preamp pedal and the Klon.I've found both pedals to be somewhat similar, they both add rich harmonics.First portion of the demo is just a straight comparison between the 2 pedals dialed in as a clean boost only- the amps are dialed clean.Second portion features both pedals clean, and then stacked into the Suhr riot- theres a few parts where you can really hear a clarity difference between the klon, ankh with and without the riot on.Enjoy, post your comments.

The main purpose of the Ankh is to form a connection with your amplifier.  It boasts a dedicated, Op-Amp free, preamplifier inspired circuit in pedal form that includes tested and matched carbon composite resistors and silver mica capacitors. We wanted to develop a tool that would give you a versatile 3 dimensional studio quality tonal option on stage that you would want to keep engaged all the time. Imagine having that magical Neve quality tonal structure on your pedal board, delivering a silky balanced spectrum of sound.  You can place the Ankh on your pedal board, in your effects loop, or even as an insert for live or studio application.  

The controls are quite simple. An input control allows you to apply or limit your guitars signal to the circuit. As you turn up the Input control, you will hear the characteristics develop in the circuit.  A wide spectrum, yet focused frequency tone control allows you to shape the tonal quality that is being amplified. An output control allows you to then send the now warm, richly developed signal onto your amplifier, or your next pedal. The output control is able to deliver 24dB of boost.  

The Ankh comes standard in true bypass switching and is also available with 'Vesica Piscis bypass' that includes our Class A Line Driver built into the circuit. 

All of our pedals are hand built, one by one, and include:

A combination of silver, lead free, and rosin core solders where needed in the circuit.
No PC mounted potentiometers, switches or jacks- everything hand wired.
22 gauge silver/copper/tin wiring where needed for minimal resistance and proper conductivity.
WIMA, Panasonic, and Xicon (electrolytic) capacitors. All tested.
All properly matched diodes.
CLIFF Switches and Switchcraft Jacks.
