Wish Klon

Wish Klon

If you were to wish for a Klon, it’s unlikely you’d have this in mind. However, these very cheap pedals from Wish do hold up fairly well.


The Wis Klon is based on the Klon Centaur which is a mythical creature in both fiction and real life. The prices are famously so high that even those who can afford one would struggle to justify doing so. So how much is the Wish Klon? Well, that depends on the day and which seller you buy it from, today in July 22 they’re online for between $30 – $70. Is it worth the money and the long wait though, we’ve also seen several examples of broken pedals on forums!?ย 

Compared to a Centaur the Wish is slightly smaller but the colour is on point, at a glance you know!

Wishful Thinking

“Klones” don’t just overdrive, just like Klons they:

  • Boosts – In a similar way to how a tube screamer can be used as a boost for many styles of music, so can a Klon. In fact, many people prefer Klons as boosts due to where the mid-range bump sits. For this reason, we have included a Boost playing style showing how it cleans up using the guitar’s volume.
  • Stacks – Klons stack with RATs very well but for some reason, if you have one try stacking it with your favourite overdrives and distortions.

Contemporary Klones

Weโ€™ve been working hard at TonePedia to bring you as many Klons & โ€œKlonesโ€ as possible and have a great blog about them here.ย
