"Really Smooth Compression"

This is a compression pedal from Keeley Electronics. I haven't tried to many of their pedals before, but I think that it's safe to say they are probably a really good company based on this pedal. There are 1/4" inputs and outputs, as well an input for a power supply, and a switch to turn the effect on or off. It is a 100% analog pedal. It has no digital qualities, and is not capable of computer enhancements.


The effects editing on this pedal is relatively easy. It has four knobs, one for sustain, one for level (output), one for attack, and one for clipping. This makes it a decently versatile compressor. The manual will explain the pedal in detail, but that isn't really necessary assuming you know how a compressor works. If not though, it'll definitely get you going. Setting this up is also pretty easy.


This is a really smooth compressor, so I like to use it on my clean tones more than the heavy distortion. Don't get me wrong though, this thing goes great with really heavy tones for leads, but they generally aren't the kind of sounds I'm looking for. Besides, with my Big Muff my distorted sounds have all the compression they need. I think that I like this best with my Strat and Twin combo. I really like the way it rounds out the levels and really allows the sound to get nice and thick.


Overall, this is a solid compressor. It's a little pricey but it's nice, because there are no noise issues (unless you're Thurstoon Moore, in which case, that's a good thing), and it's got a great, versatile sound. I really like this pedal a lot and would recommend it to many people who are looking for something nice in terms of compression, without going to outboard or rack gear.
