Is the famous Klon vs. Bad Monkey battle from a live performance video or is it from some controlled enironment basement benchtesting A/B session? No big whoop to get a sound out of one pedal to sound a whole lot like a sound in another pedal. That's about like getting a G chord to sound like a G chord through a Telecaster, a Gretsch Duo Jet, and a Les Paul Recording. The basic sound is of course part of it. Other considerations are feel, headroom, travel across the instrument's volume pot, interaction/effect of entire signal chain w/ buffer A vs. buffer B, etc. Even if a TS9 or Bad Monkey can 'sound' like a Klon (and to me they just don't, sorry), I don't play the same way through either of those as I do through a Klon. Klon is just more refined. But maybe it's just my imagination.
