Tone aficionados kept telling EHXs Mike Matthews about a pedal that had achieved a lot of buzz because it was only obtainable at an exorbitant price. That pedal was the KLON CENTAUR.A believer in bringing great tools to starving musicians, Mike tasked his trusty team to create an affordable alternative, and that is how the SOUL FOOD was cooked up. The SOUL FOOD delivers transparent overdrive with great touch and response. Its circuitry features boosted power rails to provide abundant headroom and increased definition. Best of all, you don't have to be a rock star to own one! Features/Specs: Transparent overdrive Boosted power rails for extended headroom and definition Super responsive Compact, rugged design Selectable true bypass or buffered bypass modes 9.6DC-200 power supply included. Also runs on 9 Volt battery.

As a clean boost into an overdriven amp, IT BOOMS! You get the natural tube distortion of your amp, not of the pedal. All it does is overload your preamp tubes...which is all you really want it to do.
As a clean boost for solos, it's worth its weight in gold. I also use it as a clean boost after a whole bunch of drive pedals, and really, it is incredible. It doesn't affect the tone whatsoever (assuming you adjust the tone nob to taste). Often you'll find that when you run an overdrive or boost after a heavy gain pedal, you lose the drive of the heavy gain pedal and it turns into mush. With this guy, if you set the drive at 0, you really do get 100% clean boost. I can even use it after a muff pedal and it doesn't change the color whatsoever.
Yea you can use it as a standalone drive pedal and it sounds good, but IMHO this thing is build to produce a clean boost, and it does so better than dozens of more expensive "boutique" pedals I've tried. (The circuitry is based on the famous "Klon" pedal....No, I haven't tried the $1000+ Klon...and i have no reason to after playing with the soul food)
CAN'T RECOMMEND IT ENOUGH.
I was looking for a low gain, transparent overdrive that would give my signal a bit of dirt without going into full blown snarl territory, and the Soul Food does well here. This is a very touch sensitive pedal that will react to your playing better than a lot of pedals I've played in the past. With the gain set low, and the amp set to just below overdriving, it's difficult to tell you have the pedal on (in the best possible way). Set this way, the pedal will drive an amp into overdrive. With a little more gain, the overdrive gets thick and warm, but it also retains enough clarity for your guitar to shine through.
This pedal also stacks well. I use a Fulltone OCD for my heavier drive sounds, and kicking in the Soul Food in front of the OCD warms the OCD up a bit and gives it a bit more cut.
The only downside I have noticed so far is that lowering the gain too much makes the pedal sound a bit thin and whimpy, but as long as you put the gain at or above 9 o'clock you're good to go.
It isn't a fuzz type or really "dirty" type of overdrive on it's own.
The Soul Food does works well as an overdrive but I appreciate it more as a booster in combination with other pedals.
It plays well with a number of pedals I have experimented with.
It's well-built and trouble free, no hissing or popping here.
Ultimately the question on rating pedals is would you buy it again or live without it?
I'd buy it again.
