Studio-grade Compression in a StompboxThe Keeley Electronics Compressor rocks. Compression has long been a studio and stage essential for pro guitarists, and Robert Keeley is making some of the best-sounding compressors on the market. What's his secret? Robert uses only the highest-quality components, resulting in a stompbox that preserves your guitar's natural tone, while juicing clarity and balancing out the strings. With the Keeley Compressor, you're getting studio-grade compression in a stompbox form factor. If you like your guitar sound up front and transparent, you need the Keeley Compressor in your rig.
Keeley Electronics Compressor Guitar Compression Pedal at a Glance:
Great-sounding compression - without the noise
The Keeley Compressor makes your guitar sound great, without introducing noise into the signal. You also get the controls to shape your sound exactly the way you want it. The Keeley Compressor is a pedal you'll never want to be caught without. Whether onstage or in the studio, you'll come to rely on the Keeley Compressor as an essential component of your guitar sound.
Weapons-grade build quality
Keeley's Compressor may be small, but its packed with ultra-high-grade components. Guitar pedal guru Robert Keeley wouldn't have it any other way. You see, Robert knows that metal film resistors and capacitors translate into ultra-clean operaton. In his quest for the absolute sound, he even hand matches transistors to less than one percent tolerance. With its weapons-grade build quality, you can also rest assured that your Keeley Compressor will stand up to road abuse and give you many years of great sound and trouble-free operation.
Two knobs = sound-shaping mojo
The Keeley Compressor gives you easy control over you guitar sound. The Sustain knob lets you dial in the exact amount of compression you want, while the Level knob is you output control. With minimal sustain and lots of level, you essentially have a clean boost. Combining different settings of these two controls gives you a near-infinite amount of dynamics control over your guitar sound.

by Switchback from west palm beach, FLWow, what a super compressor, I have really enjoyed working with this pedal. When I first got the pedal I hooked it up in standard order, wah, tuner and compressor. It sounded great as I would have ex... read more [+]pected it too, however I used the suggested order from the keeley insert and wow I was even more surprised by the result than I thought I would be. Its really no surprise that a compressor dampens the dynamics of an O/D which isn't necessarily a bad thing. For my application, the O/D before my compressor hit it on the head. I get the dynamic tones from my O/D and the lush sustain of the compressor and they seem to gel like old friends. I am really pleased with the way this pedal effects my signal, its super quiet and has a very smooth affect on the tonal changes, It does exactly what it claims to do and does it with exceptional quality. I want to thank my man John Ptak for awesome service as well, the staff at sweetwater are the tops. close [-]

by fromI've owned this pedal for about 3 years now, and I will definitely add my two cents to the acclaim this pedal has earned over the years. These days, you certainly have your choice of compressors, but... read more [+] for most players, I think it would be tough to find fault with this one. The Keeley does everything a compressor should do, with no excess frills or controls, and just does them extremely well. You get sustain and punch, as you will with just about any compressor, but with the Keeley you get an incredible level of refinement. It is, first of all, as transparent as compressors get. You will still hear the sound of your guitar, which is something not all compressors do very well and almost none do as well as this pedal. It's also as low-noise as compressors get. Added noise is simply a byproduct of compression, but even with single coils, you'll hear less of it with the Keeley. Overall, it's just incredibly musical and easy to use, and adds entirely new, inspiring characteristics to each guitar I plug into it. If you're a player looking for an incredibly specific or tweakable kind of compression, this might not be the pedal you're searching for. This is a straight-up, no-nonesense compressor that is extremely well built and does its job better than almost anything else out there. close [-]

This is the compressor you've been waiting for!
