I've recently gotten a lot of questions about my pedalboard and while it won't make sense as a whole, I think there are some interesting factors to my setup.
But the fact of the matter is that this is not a classic pedalboard. It's more of a test rig of several different overdrives and distortion pedals, because I can never settle for just one.
Let's just go from top to bottom, left to right!
1. Klirrton/Kohlekeller Distortion Prototype
This pedal is obviously still in its developing stages, but it basically offers to blend in the HM-2 tone with your already existing preamp tones.
2. SNK Pedals VHD
The Varial Harmonic Distortion is based on the legendary Ampeg VH-140C and delivers that solid state, 90s Death Metal and Hardcore type tone.
3. Airis Mid Boost
This is a mid/clean boost prototype that Richard sold for dirt cheap through his Facebook and I couldn't resist the fluorescent orange. It sounds great, too.
4. Boss TU-2
Well, it's a fuckin' tuna, innit?
5. MXR SmartGate
Well, that's a fucking gate now, noise be gone.
6. Rodenberg Flux Capacitor Custom
My go-to screamer in front of literally any tube amp. You can turn it on. Or off. That's it. The Flux has a preset that does exactly what I need it to. Where we're going, we don't need knobs!
7. Kartakou Warmer OD
Another cool OD. As the name suggests, you are able to retain the low end punch while still increasing the tightness and making those tubes scream.
8. Airis Savage Boost
This is a clean boost with an EQ curve. Clean boosts have had a resurgence since the Fortin Grind and the Savage Boost does a similar thing, very well no less!
9. Fortin 33
Probably one of the most wanted boosts on the market, thanks to its limited production quantities. It's insane and maybe a tad too aggressive for my already vicious rhythm tone, but I love it with a slightly more tame amp or even in front of the Kemper with a mid gain profile.
10. Horizon Devices Precision Drive
The OD for the younger generation of modern Metal players. I haven't found the perfect application for this yet, but it's a solid pedal with cool features. The built-in noise gate is certainly a cool idea!
#Grindstein News: All of the grindsteins are going to be at the post office on Tuesday evening. Our small post office opens its doors ONLY for #klirrton, cause of the big amount of packages. 😂
Status update 2nd batch: Please write me a mail to [email protected], so i can plan the amount of grindsteins for you. there are lots of preorders already... Thx!
#dayoff: After all this madness the last few months, today I take a day off... I hope the next few months with klirrton get as crazy and wild as the last were!
So tell me what should I do with that strange thing called spare time?
Today I tried to restock #lichtbringer pedals. But without success, you buy faster than I can build... 🙈
If someone didn't get one of these two for xmas, please dm me. I try my best not to mess up your christmas and provide a Lichtbringer. I am busy af the last few days and it will be hard to build Lichtbringer until the end of the year.
But I promise, I try my best!🤘 Now I go out with my wife for dinner and meet some old friends, I didn't see for more than a decade.
What do you do this evening?
the intersection of an excellent Sake and an outstanding sound

#Grindstein enclosures are drilled and printed in Germany now! 💪
Man this was a long ride, it was money and time consuming. But now it is done and today the sample enclosures for the 2nd batch came in. 👌
The 2nd batch is coming soon and the waitlist is already packed with lots of people! Thanks for that!

@entombed.adofficial Nico uses #klirrton's Lichtbringer to boost his mighty @laboga.gear.
Sorry for the bad #marketing photos but I couldn't resist drinking beers with the guys in @baestband, @abortedmetal, @entombed.adofficial and @kohlekellerstudio ... 😂
At least you can see the blue light (last pic) of Lichtbringer on stage, right?
Nico also told me that he used LB all over the new album "Bowels of earth"! 🤘🤘🤘 Damn, so go buy this record! (unbezahlte Werbung )
Let's see what future brings... 😉 Any ideas?
All Lichtbringers are sold again! I try to restock before Christmas, that you can have one if you want one.
But please tell me via DM, so i can estimate the amount.
All orders of LB will be shipped on Monday!
Get yours 199 USD + Free Shipping --》 Write me a DM!
I had the absolute pleasure of hosting Kohle of the mighty @kohlekellerstudio here at @sludgestudios and try his new collab distortion pedal prototype with @klirrton.
He left that one for me to tinker with, so expect some nasty clips soon. It should be especially interesting for those of you who are into the HM-2 tone, but this thing can do a lot more. Stay tuned!
So here‘s a #romantic story:
On one of my very first #deathmetal shows as a kid I saw #Sinister from the Netherlands. Today I’m mixing their upcoming album!
And it sounds f**kn heavy!!! And it will be one of the first albums with a #Grindstein pedal on guitars! Stay tuned!

Don’t forget the pedal is coming with these sexy sounding Kemper profiles!
"The second #Grindstein batch is out!
So watch this wonderfully filthy sounding video and order yours!

Don't forget about the #Grindstein soundpack done by @kohlekellerstudio! Mr. Spuck, Breeeedator and Slimer Growl love it!
You can download this pack for free at www.klirrton.com/gs/gs_pack.zip!
But beware you need a Grindstein to enter the dungeons of brooootality... 🤘☠🤘
On the #Sinister reamp there are two Mesa Boogie Road King tracks.
Sounds cool, but....
here's what happens if you add two more tracks of #GRINDSTEIN only!
Hope the Insta video won't rape the audio too much!
