Hey man, I am a firm believer in the Koko boost.
Everyone's setup and goals are different but idk it is just the right pedal for me. I went from a devoted Maxon 808 guy to the Suhr and am not looking back. Not with this setup anyway, it is perfect.
I know a guy who had both the grind and the koko at the same time, he sold the grind. I will also say IMO the koko likes 18v.
I say get one and try it. I wait for MONTHS for a good deal. Scored one for under $120 on ebay but it took a very long time to wait for the right deal. Just keep your eyes open. It is worth a try IMO.
With that said I also rave a lot about the pedal and someone else on here bought one from my hype and he did not like it at all. To each their own, maybe it will work for you maybe not.
There are TONS of very transparent pedals out there these days that will not cut your bass to try from.
Koko Pro's - sounds grainy as fuck, transparent, gives you that little extra push and is great IMO for metal.
3 way clipping toggle
Can choose the actual frequency of the mid boost (still doesn't cut the bass only boosts the mids) and the actual boost amount so lots of options. (I keep both low)
Koko cons - For me, the clean boost side is useless. I use a boost in front of a high gain amp to give it a little more. IMO the clean boost side sounds like crap. It is not stack able so it is one or the other.
I have never played around with different uses like slight breakup on cleans and whatever else so this is just my experience with my application.
This pedal would be perfect if the clean boost was stack able and was just simply a db boost of the other channel. That way I could use it for a lead boost.
