Well, like anything else, it depends on how well it gets you to your sound. For me, it's worth the cash. I've never used another overdrive quite like it. That said, I have a TS-808 as well, and while it cost hundreds less, it gets me tones I can't get with the Klon. Between the Klon, TS-808, Keeley boost and King of Tone, I've got all my boost and overdrive bases covered.

I run my AC30 full tilt, so the blue Hot Plate is a must-have. Without it, I'd be on a first-name basis with every cop in the county. Of course, the more you choke the amp with the Hot Plate, the more tonal loss you get. It's most noticeable after -8dB. - Keith
