EytschPi42 did an in depth review of this on youtube which is worth a look if you've got time.

 

Lots of people keep saying its the Keeley version of a klon, based on the graphic I would imagine, but the company has categorically stated that's not the case

Also I see there is a germanium version (OC75 inside). They took out the compression on this one so it's a little more punchy.

 

 

Wouldn't it be something if RK made one that had two settings. One with the germanium transistors on one side and the silicon transistors on the other.

Then you could get the best of both worlds. When you needed a little compression, it'd be right there.

 

Decisions, decisions, decisions.

 

I'm leaning to the germanium one. We'll see how it all shakes out.

There are no silicon transistors in the normal one. The regular oxblood has a switch to toggle between silicon or germanium diodes (not transistors). The germanium version uses new production OC75 transistors configured as diodes. Basically it is a convenient way to use the transistors that do not meet spec requirements for their boost and fuzz pedals

 

To be honest there is nothing special or desirable about new production OC75 it is purely a marketing gimmick, but that’s not to say it’s a bad sounding pedal
