We use the same cabling across all of our products so your signal chain from pickups to pedals, to amp retains as much tone as possible. Our cables are handmade in Nashville, Tennessee, and spreading rapidly across the music industry.

Orientation of the plugs: Straight to Straight, Straight to Right-Angle, Right-Angle to Right-Angle
For our patch cable bundle, the options are only the end orientations which is any combination of 2 of the 3 options for each of the 5 patch cables:
Right-Angle, Square Plug (a very low profile, thin right-angle plug), and Half-Profile (a straight plug that is about half the length of normal straight plugs)

Can a bona fide funk guru help design a better Klone?

Wide range of gain. Very useful EQ.

Doesn’t do the Klon clean boost as well as original.

Jackson Audio’s pedal collaboration with modern funk hero Cory Wong could have taken a few different paths. Considering Wong’s style, a compressor would have been an obvious choice. Instead, the Optimist is a dual overdrive that builds on a Klon-inspired baseline, adds a second overdrive, and has a clever EQ to create a super-flexible overdrive. Named after Wong’s second album, The Optimist suits Wong’s exuberant and fun-loving personality. But it also describes the way you might approach a gig with this pedal in hand. Together, the two separate overdrives and active EQ give you enough tones to cover almost any gig this side of Slayer cover band.
