    CP-15: Wampler Triple Wreck

    CP-21: IS NOT Wampler Plexidrive, but an OCD with slightly different tone control (more mids) and switchable 2N7000/4148 clipping.

    CP-24: MXR 10-band EQ

    CP-16: 2-stage distortion with 4148 clipping diodes in both stages.

    1. Patrick

      You missed the CP-43 Pegasus Overdrive clone of the Klon.

    2. Voice of the truth

      CP-15 is a electro harmonix metal muff actually, not a triple wreck!

    3. Caster Masters

      I don’t think the Highwayman is an RC booster clone because it has way more gain than an RC booster. This rumor started because it has the same circuit board are the orange burst, apparently. I suggest that it is possibly an AC Booster. The BB and RC are both based on the AC. If it is based on the RC, it is modified to the point that it’s something else entirely

    CP-30 Wampler Plextortion

    CP-28 Boss CE-2

    CP-27 MI Audio Crunch Box

    CP-16 Noah’s Ark Distortion ‘B’

    CP-15 EHX metal muff (with top boost)

  3. Ad_slammer

    CP-24: MXR 10-band EQ
    CP-27: Mi audio Crunch Box v2/3 with presence as a pot (not inner trimmer)
    CP-30: Wampler Plextortion

    The Highway is also a clone of the Timmy. Caline just put in weird pots for the tone controls so at noon it has a much more pronounced mid-hump. Otherwise it is exactly the same as the Pure Sky.

    Confirmed by rev engineering here:

    I think the Hot Mushroom is an MXR Dynacomp clone. Pretty sure.

    I think the Hot Mushroom is an MXR Dynacomp clone. Pretty sure.

    Can you please update this list?

  8. AJ

    CP-34 Head Room – Vintage Distortion – Pro Co RAT

  9. Char W

    The CP-22 Purple Smoke is more like the Xotic Effects RC Booster than the CP-25 Highwayman.

    The CP-47 PRESSURE TANK is a Diamond Compressor clone. Excellent pedal and remarkably quiet.

  11. Audiophile

    The CP-15 Tantrum pedal is supposedly a MESA BOOGIE pre-amp type clone. I purchased, plugged it into a JCM800 on low gain with presence and entire tone stack at 5. Through a PAF 50’s wired LP Custom setup I personally thought it was a SLO50/100 type preamp tone. I looked it up, others say MESA BOOGIE. Either way, this thing seriously destroys. Some terrible YouTube video reviews and some good ones. With my setup I felt it sounded pretty much dead ringer to SLO. You decide, worth it, and extremely quiet for such high gain.

  12. Audiophile

    The CP-504 M:Fuzz pedal is said to be an OpAmp V4 Big-Muff Pi. I own a 1990’s V4 and Sovtek version of these and have played them for longer than many people reading this have been alive. It’s neither of those. It’s very very close, but is missing the sharp edge/bite of a real Big Muff. It’s also an altered tone control with a sweep range that is useful all the way through 0 to dimed. Unlike the real Big Muff, the M:Fuzz’s tone setup is more mid-range focused, where the original Muff muddies out. You will get a smoother, more sustainy melodic type tone with this than an original. Not a bad pedal at all. Will sit side by side with my real muff. This thing just does Fuzz a little differently. I’m willing to bet its some oddity Muff edition clone because it’s definitely Muff’ish, just not OpAmp V4 or Sovtek for sure.

  13. Trey

    I’m pretty sure the Purple Smoke’s (CP-22) clean boost is a unique design it’s the secret sleeper pedal that does something that’s not duped by anything else available out there effectively it’s a hidden gem destined to be somewhat of a legend for the price it simply can’t be beat for what it does. It offer’s a special tone not just for guitarist’s but for synths & mic boosting as well it’s really quite an impressive stomp box folks.

  14. Russ

    CP-99 “Overdrive” was referred to as the Medusa in the Reverb listing, but that word is nowhere to be found on the pedal.(Gold with red print – graphic of what looks like a mermaid using a pointy metal guitar as an arrow in its bow)- supposedly a Klon, but I cracked one open and it’s not a traditional Klon. They changed the pot values, used a different op amp, Lower voltage than the real Klon. Uses an inductor to achieve +12v rather than a charge pump.. I could not find any +18v in there. Sounds higher gain and more treble than a real Klon.
