Remember the first Klon (opens in new tab) Centaur overdrive pedal (opens in new tab)ever made that JHS Effects chief Josh Scott (opens in new tab) was selling (opens in new tab) for $500,000 on Well, what if we told you Music Is Win's Tyler Larson (opens in new tab) bought it, went broke as a result, played through it and then tried to ransom it back to Scott? 

Just watch the video above if you don't believe us. At the very least you'll get to hear a half a million dollar effects pedal (opens in new tab) in action.
