Master Effects Happy Trails Overdrive


Master Effects

The Happy Trails overdrive is based on a highly modified Klon Centaur circuit. It incorporates an internal charge pump to run the circuit at 18V, which means more headroom and dynamic range.

The Happy Trails pedal allows the player to select what type of clipping diodes are best suited for their playing style.

Also incorporated in this pedal is the buffer that is found on the original Centaur which is widely regarded to be one of the best buffers available. This isn’t the cheapo buffers that you find on old wah pedals and commercial stomp boxes.
