The award winning industry standard for stomp box compression.
The last 25 that will ever be made of the 2 knob compressor are in production right now. Each will be hand signed by Robert Keeley, with a custom printed back-plate. These will end with #25, which will also be the 40,000th compressor Keeley has made!! This compressor is one of the pedals that brought on the boutique pedal revolution. It has been used by nearly every pro guitar player in the business. It is the industry standard by which other compressors are judged.
The classic squishy sound has been made popular by country guitar players, blues and rock legends and have graced thousands of P&W bands pedal-boards. The sound is instantly good, instantly classic. For tremendous sustain, it’s the Keeley Compressor.
All of our Compressors are hand built in the USA. Unlike any other compressor, the Keeley Compressor was given the Editor’s Pick Award from Guitar Player’s Magazine and recently awarded Reader’s Choice for Stomp Box. It is a true audiophile and studio grade compressor with an exotic rack mount quality in a stomp box form. The sound alone will inspire your creativity.
The Keeley Compressors now have an Internal Attack control, designed to make guitars with humbucker guitars sound more punchy. The attach control is really a release time control, but the effect is that the compression ends sooner and your ‘next’ note has more attack.
After tweaking the compressor design, Keeley Compressors now have an input sensitivity control which allows the user to run higher level instruments in to the compressor. Fender Master Builders have installed the compressor in Fender basses!
The Keeley Compressor effect has nothing but tone tested components and true bypass switching and the effect switching incorporates a triple pole-double throw switch! The user will marvel at the clean unaffected sound when in the bypass mode and the compressor has an LED for effect indication.
Metal film resistors and capacitors ensure the cleanest compressor on the market. Hand matched transistors to less than 1% tolerance and ensures the musician receives a perfectly compressed signal with no chance for unwanted distortions.
The sound quality of the Keeley comp is unheard of in the stomp-box arena and is only seen in the high-end, very expensive rack-mount or tube equipment.
Standard 9V DC battery and AC adapter connection. Low Current Draw – 5mA.
