A little fizzy at the top  (By Mike)

Great value but cranking the gain produced some artifacts that I wasn't expecting. Great pedal for lower gain sounds. (Posted on 5/18/15)
''Not Justa Klone''  (By Jesse )
Price
Value
Quality
On most Klon Klones , the demonstrator invariably chooses to emphasize the clear/ clean/boost design practically using the length of the demo as an ''One Trick Pony''! But here right off the bat, ''KaBoom'' there's several 2-Note leads and way of a Sweet tone setting, very different! Unfortunately after I searched and bought mine,.. not only was I impressed I actually came across a second version of this Bad Boy! Made by EHX and mod'd by the folks @ JHS! An actual 3way diode selector that nails the Klon Centaur's tone! I said tone, not the feeling, two distinct allegories! That's the money maker's reflection! If you look in a mirror you'll see a reflection, now touch the mirror,..the face is the same but in a 3D sense it's another feeling altogether! For comparison sake you get the picture! The JHS' ''Soul Food'' on the 3 way's center or 2nd setting pretty much as the term infers nalis the Centaur's tone, rather ''The Guitar's Tone'', very crisp,transparent,.. set it and go! But on the ''Soul Food'' oddly enough lol you can afford yourself the luxury to make other adjustments! There's also a ''Bass Boost''circuit via a rotary knob. On a Clean setting,''Buffered or True Bypass'' it will allow several plus+ ''Minor or Slight'' bass adjustments...on the use of it as an ''OD''- ''Heaven's Forbid This'' as so many user's attitudes go and excusing themselves on the justification of paying $2k ''PLUS'' Ebay...why else,Right?!! Anyhow set it for ''OD''now the Bass Boost/Adjustment,..say from 8 on of the knob becomes an Octavia but in the lower frequencies!!! I don't think or believe that this shelving to be intentional by design but it does exist, very unique and very useful!!! Great on chords 3rds & 5ths say 8 and on, clear bass harmonics not only boosting the signal but adding it on as an effect and slightly compressed harmonics with the preferred setting of an ''OD''!!! Enough said, I found this effect was possible by putting it through it's paces and only as after thought for my intended use as an ''OD'' and literally as a ''What is that and what is that I'm hearing'', LATER! Undeniably, another present day genius of a product by my mentor ''Mike Matthews'' (Posted on 4/25/15)

First impression:
It's impressive what this pedal can do. You actually can feel and hear your sound perfectly, applying drive in a transparent way.

Sound:
Your sound will be actually like your rig. And the drive remember me a lot Marshall JTMs and Fender Reverbs.

Price:
Has a very good price for what it can really do. (Posted on 3/4/15)

Great fat boost/overdrive  (By Jesper)
Value

I bought a Soul Food a couple of months ago. I use it for fat boost with the drive just a smidgen left of 12 o' clock, treble a 12 and volume to taste and it really fattens up my single coil tone on both Strat and Tele. The light OD is really great too. I just bought a second one for home use! (Posted on 1/14/15)
Why is this so inexpensive?  (By Andy Summers Wannabe)
Value

I bought this pedal spontaneously. I wanted to get a Klon tone and read about this little bugger. It really is a great distortion pedal. I use it for more than just a clean boost, I couple it with a compressor and get a very jagged classic distortion with an overdriven tube feel. The tone is just totally classic. I even can get that high treble clipping that the Klon could get. This pedal is $67 and its small and light a feather (is there anything even inside?) so I can't see any excuse for not adding this to your pedal arsenal. If you want really gainy distortion, forget it this is not your pedal. (Posted on 9/2/14)
Amazing value  (By NealSilverSpring)

This is a great peddle at an amazing price. It a great boost peddle, but the tone control options really open up an expanded pallet of tonal possibilities, particularly for single coil pickup. It both makes the tone richer and increases flexibility. I keep it on with my G&L ASAT using my guitar controls to shape my tone. For humbuckers, I tend to switch in for leads and cut out for rhythm. For the price you can't go wrong! Worth it even at multiples of the price. (Posted on 7/3/14)
good pedal  (By Artem)

amazing pedal and at a very good price. I think it's a musthave for everyone who likes "transparent' overdrives which only add some color to your guitar tone. I ran it side by side with Analogman King of Tone - Soul Food is different in character but absolutely on the same level of "musicality". It does not make you change the manner of playing - the instrument feels as on "clean" settings but with easier touch. (Posted on 6/13/14)

It's time to move this pedal to the list of stand out effects. It's time to drop our ridiculous covetousness of the Klon Centaur. It's time to make space on your board for the Soul Food. (Posted on 4/18/14)
1990s pricing with timeless tone  (By SlewCzarCheck)

Every once in a while a pedal comes along that makes you want to play twice as much even if it means getting blisters from so much playing. For the price, its that good. The Soul Food can be an always-on pedal. Or, you can use it for more overdriven tones. You could get 1 Klon or about 35 of these pedals; do the math. The Soul Food pedal is just so tasty. Its kind of like finding the most incredible BBQ joint, with no lines, $2 sandwiches, a functional Wurlitzer jukebox, and your favorite drink always on tap. (Posted on 4/14/14)

Tone aficionados kept telling EHX’s Mike Matthews about a pedal that had achieved a lot of buzz because it was only obtainable at an exorbitant price. That pedal was the KLON CENTAUR.
A believer in bringing great tools to starving musicians, Mike tasked his trusty team to create an affordable alternative, and that is how the SOUL FOOD was cooked up.

The SOUL FOOD delivers transparent overdrive with great touch and response. Its circuitry features boosted power rails to provide abundant headroom and increased definition. Best of all, you don’t have to be a rock star to own one!


Quick Specs
- Transparent overdrive
- Boosted power rails for extended headroom and definition
- Super responsive
- Compact, rugged design
- Selectable true bypass or buffered bypass modes
- 9.6DC-200 power supply included. Also runs on 9 Volt battery
