Keeley has unveiled the X pedal range, a collection of 10 limited-edition stompboxes that range from re-designed classics to brand-new effects.
Our pick of the bunch are three newly minted pedals: the Tri Verb X, the Roto Sonic X, and the Tri Mod X. The former is a reverb pedal that combines three of the brand’s most popular reverb presets, while the latter two feature new rotary/vibe modes and chorus tones, respectively.
Here’s a breakdown of all 10 X pedals:
- Tri Verb X: Combines Keeley’s Spring, Plate and Chamber reverbs for the first time
- Roto Sonic X: A new Keeley Vibe pedal with Les’ Rotary Speaker, Vibro-X, and U-Vibe modes
- Tri Mod X:
- Dubbed “the world’s only flawless chorus pedal”
- Produces a killer combination of chorus, flanger and phase effects
- Comp Plus X: Dubbed the “ultimate guitar compressor”
- Mezzo Drive X:
- Dubbed the “ultimate Dirty White Sand”
- Produces a transparent, low-gain, and Tube Screamer-like drive
- Super Phat X: Produces a tube amp tone
- Super Ox X: Takes after Keeley’s fabled Oxblood overdrive
- OP Fuzz X:
- Takes after Keeley’s Op Amp Fuzz
- Produces a thick, sticky fuzz sound
- Tape Echo X:
- Emulates a magnetic tape echo
- Keeley’s cavernous X modulation is added to the delay effect
- Super Bass X: A Bass Compressor that tightens and fattens your tone
Only 30 pieces of each model will be made, so don’t sleep on this. To entice you further, Keeley’s also offering a pretty sweet deal on these pedals: buy four and get the fifth one free, or buy eight and get the other two free.
Retails at $149 each. More information at robertkeeley.com.
