KOT, POT, DOT. These acronyms in the context of our pedal culture have become ubiquitous.  But let’s get real for a second:  what we actually GOT here (ahem) is a modification on a stock Marshall BluesBreaker overdrive (from the early 90s no less!), a circuit that has gradually been adopted as this season’s holy-grail-of-tone.  So much so, in fact, that spiraling prices for “originals” and rumours of multiple-year new order waitlists are the norm.

But if you, like many, grow weary of this game – of endlessly chasing what others consider to be the ultimate pedal tone, watching countless video shoot-outs and pointless A/B testing of clones and contenders versus the ‘real thing’ – where it’s never about simply being close, but being 100% indistinguishable, which btw is a very tall order considering most vintage pedals vary in sound themselves.  At the end of the day, you just want a quality pedal that sounds great and can be depended upon to deliver the goods on stage and in the studio, and those goods will always center around the sound.  You want the tone, and no games!  And at a reasonable price!  Oh, and availability is nice as well.

Not to sound cryptic, but what GOT is is a fully cloned POT (which equals half a KOT) but we’ve added an added switch that emulates a KOT with both its overdrives on and an internal trimpot where you can control the amount of gain of that first-stage.  So between the switch being on and off (essentially one overdrive or two) and combining this with your drive and tone control settings, including two internal trim pots for Presence and 2nd Gain, you can key in quite a wide range of tonal colors all based on this holier-than-grail circuit.  Or, to get even closer to real KOT-ness, consider getting two GOTs.  Get it?  By mixing and matching the switch settings on your dual GOT setup you can then get 2, 3, or even 4 emulated overdrives in series.  You have everything to gain, because your gain choices are endless!  Yes, we said that.
