Never seen one before? Man, that's really treading a fine line with trademark or copyright infringement; just different enough that they can probably get away with it.

Then, there's this, which I lifted directly from the Amazon site - "CLONE Klon Centaur GOLD PROFESSIONAL OVERDRIVE True Bypass Mini Klon Centaur Effect Pedal".

I can tell you, there are a lot of bogus products and knock-offs on Amazon, even for well-known brand name products. They're usually from some retailer or supplier you've never heard of, very often overseas, although some say "Fulfilled by Amazon". I'd take my chances with a bargain OD from my nearest GC, before I'd order one of those.

I've ordered a ton of stuff off of Amazon and only had to return 2 or 3 products. Amazon has a return policy that is very fast and efficient with free shipping via UPS. On products supplied by independents, Amazon monitors them very closely. I have had to contact one directly regarding a return and Amazon monitors their response. They risk being kicked off the program, if they do not satisfy a customer. Amazon guaranteed me a refund. I would give the pedal a try if I really wanted one and hope for the clone to Klon at $25 bucks LOL! cool

I figured for $23 and free shipping, if I didn't like it, I could give it to somebody who did.

A little further down, on that same Amazon page, there was this listing, for $6 more -

Mosky Golden Horse Full Metal Shell

Not sure what the difference is, other than $6 more for what looks like the same box?
