I bought this chasing the mythical Klon magic and compared side by side to a Wampler Tumnus. While I like the Centavo overall and the casing is Klon-like, the Tumnus excelled at boosting, pushing a clean amp to slightly dirtyand overall sounds better than anything I could do with the Centavo. I really tried hard to love the Centavo but ultimately returned it.
