Chinese pedal maker NUX has announced the Horseman, a new mini pedal that crams two legendary circuits – the Gold and Silver Klon Centaurs – into one small enclosure.

The operation is excessively straightforward – hold down the footswitch and the gold pedal switches into silver mode, increasing the voltage up to 18V with more gain and headroom.

The three-knob layout boasts controls for treble, output and gain, and there’s also optional true/buffered bypass.

Best of all, the Horseman retails for considerably less than that vintage Klon – just $69
