A Classic British Distortion

The Keeley overdrive has been designed to produce early British amp distortions, providing powerfully crunchy tones that are heavy and cutting, the very definition of the classic distortion. The pedal features layers of gain in order to achieve a deep rich tone, and offers a smoothness that gives it plenty of sustain. When used in a chain, the 1962 British Overdrive Pedal offers its best sound when placed after the compressors, before any time based effects and is the first overdrive in the chain.

Hand Built Craftsmanship

Keeley’s pedal has been hand crafted with precision components to provide the best design possible. Using components from the katana booster and both JFET like valves found in British amps, the pedal recreates the pre-amp and output tube distortion’s characteristics. The pedal also features a hybrid of circuits with a select low noise op-amp to create a pedal that sparkles with life without taking away from its clarity.
