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 1962x 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.

KT88 Mode

The 1962x version of Keeley’s British overdrive pedal features a toggle for switching between KT66 mode and KT88 mode. Whilst the KT66 mode provides the same tones and characteristic as the basic 1962 pedal, the KT88 mode offers high headroom with MOSFET clipping. The pedals KT88 mode features a MOSFET transistor that’s inserted into the clipping stage to produce a higher output for a forceful, focused and meaty sound. The KT88 mode allows the pedal to step up its power, helping to light up the front end of classic tube amps.

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. The electronics are housed in a sturdy and stylish casing that features a design that’s based off of many classic bluesbreaker design elements, and also has a special printed “open back” back plate.
