Klon chose the right name for their Centaur pedal as it seems to have acquired a mythical status among guitarists, prompting several companies to introduce pedals with a similar sound/function. MI Audio didn't design their Super Blues Pro as a Centaur clone, but, having recently had the Centaur in the MI Audio workshop, realised that it had a similar tone to the MOSFET setting on the Super Blues Pro after playing it for a while. Watch the video and read what they have to say...
"We did a quick A/B shootout and were able to dial in some verrrrry close tones although the two pedals are very different designs. The Klon is a fairly unique circuit, and the Super Blues Pro is from the Tube Screamer family. So we recorded a very quick clip to compare the two pedals.
Now, we're not at all claiming that the Super Blues Pro is identical to Klon. It's not, and that was never the intention with the Super Blues Pro. However, it was surprising that given virtually any setting on the Klon, it was possible to dial up a setting on the Super Blues Pro which got pretty damn close.
The MI Audio Super Blues Pro isn't gold, nor does it have a Centaur on it. But it does deliver crystal clean boosts, transparent overdrive, mid-range crunch and many more tones."
