Keeley Made This Germanium Overdrive Just for Sweetwater!

The Keeley Bootlegger Custom overdrive pedal is a Sweetwater-exclusive version of their Red Dirt overdrive, but with a germanium transistor instead of silicon for extra vintage vibe. Noted pedal-design guru Robert Keeley essentially combined the awesome sounds produced by his original Mod Plus and Baked modified pedals, then added refinements found exclusively in his custom pedal line. A germanium transistor instead of silicon gives the Bootlegger Custom more growling lows and subtly smoother top end. The result is so dynamic and organic, that many of us guitarists here at Sweetwater thought we'd died and gone to pedal heaven. Put amazing overdrive in your pedal chain: the Sweetwater-exclusive Keeley Bootlegger Custom overdrive.

Keeley quality: great sound and dependability

The Keeley Electronics Keeley Bootlegger Custom overdrive pedal is made in the USA and packed with ultra-high-grade components. Robert Keeley wouldn't have it any other way. With its weapons-grade build quality, you can also rest assured that your Bootlegger Custom will stand up to road abuse and give you many years of great sound and trouble-free operation.
