JHS Owner Sells First-Ever Klon Centaur for $500,000 Leave a comment

JHS Pedals owner Josh Scott has put the Klon Centaur #2 up for sale for $500,000.

Despite the serial number, the stompbox was the first-ever Klon Centaur built and sold, as Klon developer Bill Finnegan set aside #1 for himself—creating it later on.

“You know what it is. If you want the best Klon, it’s this Klon,” Scott’s listing reads. “Because of the prices lately here on the Reverb, I think this is a fair price for what it is. I only took one picture because that’s good enough. What you see is what you get, no box, nothing, just the pedal. The pedal will be hand-delivered by me, in-person to anywhere on earth for free. Allow 30 days for me to clear my schedule and get it to you from the date of purchase.”

The Klon Centaur is a handcrafted “transparent” overdrive stompbox. Meaning, instead of altering your guitar tone, the overdrive is laid over it. Due to its popularity and rarity, an original Klon Centaur can carry a price tag of as much as $5,800. Nevertheless, you can find more affordable Klon Centaur-inspired units such as the Mosky Golden Horse and Caline Pegasus.

“Buy it or don’t, I don’t really care,” Josh’s listing concludes. The JHS Pedals owner is known to be an avid collector of rare and elusive pedals.
