Renowned for its elusive status in the music industry, the Klon Centaur pedal by Bill Finnegan is making a triumphant comeback. In a remarkable turn of events, Finnegan has announced the one-time sale of a newly crafted silver-finish Centaur unit, set to benefit a long-time friend in need. This announcement marks a significant moment for both music enthusiasts and collectors, given the pedal’s discontinuation in 2008 and its subsequent cult status.

In a heartfelt Instagram post, Finnegan revealed, “Sometime in the next few days, a new silver-finish Centaur unit — the first one in a long time — will be listed on eBay as an auction item.” Emphasizing the authenticity and craftsmanship, he added, “It will have been hand-built and fully tested by me as every other genuine Klon Centaur unit has been since 1994.”

This exclusive pedal isn’t just a collector’s item; it’s a gesture of generosity. Finnegan stated, “The unit will be listed by a long-time friend of mine, to whom I am giving it… Over the years, she has occasionally needed a bit of financial help, which I feel very fortunate to have been able to provide.” He assures potential bidders that all proceeds, post eBay and PayPal fees, will directly benefit his friend, whose eBay seller ID is ‘boxing_rabbit.’

Fake Klon Centaurs

Finnegan’s Klon Centaur, a legend in its own right, ceased production over a decade ago, leaving only 8,000 units in existence. These pedals are highly coveted, often fetching high prices on resale platforms like eBay. The rarity and demand have unfortunately led to the creation of counterfeit models. In his vigilance to protect buyers, Finnegan shared a tip in August 2023 to identify fakes, focusing on specific details like the diecast enclosure and the battery compartment.
