Robert Keeley aka The Godfather of boutique pedals, has been pushing pedals out of Edmond, Oklahoma since 2001, where he quickly made a name for himself with his now legendary Keeley Compressor.
Keeley has since become synonymous with high-quality and highly musical effects, and their catalogue contains one of the widest pedal selections in the industry. Spanning everything from studio-style compressors like their Keeley Compressor+, classy overdrives such as Super Phat Mod, mind-melting modulation a la their BubbleTron, legendary tone workstations like the Dark Side and angelic ambience from devices such as Caverns.
And like a true innovator, Keeley keeps pushing forward every year, which their latest high-powered DSP devices, Eccos Delay/Looper and Hydra Reverb/Tremolo serve as true landmarks of. Keeley helped start this industry, and they will most definitely keep taking it to new place.
“I think that Keeley strikes one of the best balances between bread-and-butter mass appeal and experimental oddity within the entire pedal industry. There’s seriously something for everybody in their extensive line-up, whether you’re into blues, prog or sonic space odysseys. The bold shoegaze tones of their Loomer, made me a fan, and on top of that I find their recent offerings, Eccos and Hydra, to be utterly genius.”
