« The only phaser you need »

Publié le 06/08/11 à 08:21
Keeley is a famous pedal maker from Oklahoma. He started making pedals 10 years ago and put himself on the map by modding pedals and making his own. His original pedals have been used by many famous people like Steve Vai and Brad Paisley. He now has a Phaser pedal on the market. The Keeley Electronics Phaser has a 6 stage phase shifter. This phase shifter has an analog circuit based on OTA ICs (Operational Transconductance Amplifier Integrated Circuits). OTA-style phasers are known for their shimmery characteristics and lush sound. This pedal has two modes. It has a tap tempo foot switch and the normal on and off mode controls a Leslie cabinet style ramp mode of phaser effect. The speed on this mode is fully adjustable. When using Ramp mode, the second footswitch changes between fast and slow speeds. Users can either switch between two speeds instantly, or have the phaser gradually go between the two speeds. Ramp mode emulates the brake on a Leslie in terms of the phase speeding up and slowing down. There are four knobs. These knobs are the edge and ramp knobs with the slow and fast knobs below them. There is a mini toggle that lets you choose between tap and ramp. There is an on and off indicator LED and a 9v power supply with your inputs and outputs.

UTILIZATION

The pedal is true bypass like every pedal should be. True bypass means the pedal will not color your tone if you dont want it to. The case is made of strong metal as any good pedal is. It is a sparkly black color. You can get it in other colors like sparkly green and silver and blue. Keeley being a boutique maker can probably make any custom color or livery you would like. The switches are the normal switches that everyone uses so they are time tested and durable.

SOUND QUALITY

When you tap the tap tempo switch twice you get a tempo going. The phase effect will come in and out with that tempo. The tempo can be as slow as you want if you are playing some crazy SUNN O))) stuff. The phase effect sounds really good and it is very lush and saturated. The edge knob acts as a bit of an envelope filter and it changes where the signal hits the hardest in the sound. Ramp mode lets use you the knobs to change the speed so you can get a more exacting speed on the effect.

OVERALL OPINION

This is probably the best Phaser pedal on the market. There is not much to say about it. It is a phaser pedal. It is hard to put into words the sound it gives you. You know what it sounds like already. This pedal is built in America and will last a long time. If you like or want a phaser heavy sound you should invest in one of these pedals.
