Your Sound Starts Here

Keeley loaded this Tone Workstation multi-effects pedal with four of Robert Keeley's most popular circuits, giving you a powerful tool for defining your tone. The Tone Workstation's Keeley Compressor section is the first thing you hit, letting you dial in the feel and sustain you're looking for. A Katana Boost and 1962 overdrive deliver your desired amount of grit and output. And Keeley's Red Dirt overdrive can be switched in to offer the best of modded-TS tones. The sound you're looking for is waiting inside the Keeley Tone Workstation multi-effects pedal.

The famed Keeley Compressor

The Keeley Compressor can be found on the pedalboards of guitarists around the world for its pure tone and ability to retain the character of your guitar while adding sustain and articulation. This circuit is included in the Tone Workstation with the addition of a Blend control and Treble Boost. The Blend knob adds your original signal back into the equation to ensure you hear all the nuance of your attack. And the Treble Boost is fantastic for adding a high-end sheen to your notes. You may find yourself keeping this compressor on all the time.

Vintage grit

The first overdrive stage you'll hit is Keeley's 1962, which gives you the sound of a British amp-style tone based closely on a vintage Blues Breaker combo. Its touch sensitivity and ability to add warmth and bark to your tone make it a wonderful sound to build on. And the Tone Workstation lets you use that sound in conjunction with the Katana Boost for added harmonic content and drive. Or you can use the Katana by itself for the clean output bump that has made it a favorite among countless guitarists, especially here at Sweetwater.

Keeley's best TS-style tones

The last stop on the Tone Workstation is a Keeley Red Dirt overdrive. The Red Dirt is what happens when Robert Keeley puts all of his 15 years of TS-modding experience into a single pedal. You'll still love the character of a well-voiced midrange hump. But a JFET front end allows the pedal to feel much more amp-like. And its gain range can effortlessly go from crystal clear to incredibly saturated. This is the button you'll be stomping when you need to push your sound over the top.

Keeley Tone Workstation Multi-effects Pedal Features:

  • Multi-effects built to be the basis of your tone
  • Legendary Keeley Compressor with blend control
  • Katana Boost can be run separately or with 1962 overdrive
  • 1962 is based on vintage British crunch
  • Red Dirt overdrive is the result of 15 years of TS-style mods

Tone for Days

Another fantastic offering from Keeley. All of the sounds are fantastic. I'm using it on my fly board with a Keeley super mod workstation and a Keeley magnetic Echo. Tone for days!


This pedal is just what the doctor ordered. I wanted something to give my lower-line Gretsch a step-up in sound and the combination of effects in this baby absolutely does it. The compressor sounds awesome and does just what I had hoped it would. The boost section does exactly that: dial in how much punch you want and enjoy the full tone that jumps out at you. The overdrive section is very adjustable and will give you just a touch of "edge" to your sound or rip your face off with a searing bite. And it's very compact. I'm very impressed with the performance and my expectations were surpassed.

Keeley Tone Workstation

I was very intrested in this pedal from the minute info started rolling out about it. I used a Fender American Strat and a stock Epiphone Les Paul into a Fender Blues Jr III, Roland JC-120 and an Orange Micro Dark to demo this bad boy. This could be used as a fly-rig. If you're a traveling musician and if you're not, you're gonna wanna get one anyway. Options galore people. Will not take up too much real estate on your pedal board. You have the Keeley Comp and Treble Booster. With a sustain knob to adjust the amount of squeeze you want and a blend knob to adjust the amount of bite when using humbuckers. I didn't use the Blend knob at all with my Fender Strat(single coils). Treble boost simply adds treble when using alot of compression. Then the 1962 (Based on the Marshall Bluesbreaker) straight up Marshall tone and Katana Boost gives you clean, tube-style boost. Then the Keeley Red Dirt overdrive which is like hot-rodded tube screamers rolled up into into one unit. The 1962 and the Red Dirt tones can go from subtle to as nasty as you wanna get. You have to purchase one and try it yourself- you wont regret it. Like i said, this could be used as a fly-rig. Add a good reverb pedal to it and you're in business. Want to say a huge Thank you to AJ Becerra and Sweetwater!! AJ who always takes care of everything and keeps me updated through the entire process. Please contact AJ and he'll take care of you. Aloha!!

Serious pedal

I play covers from the 60s and 70s in a band with two guitar players. I use mainly an hss strat into a fender 68 custom deluxe reverb. I wanted to add this pedal to my board because All of the pedals in this box are useful to me. First, this is a Swiss Army knife of drive tones and boost, so it's very versatile. However, I wasn't prepared for how great they all sound through my amp. Seriously, every pedal sounds great and is amazingly useful and musical. With this pedal and a good delay I can do 90% of our set list. Usually a multi-effects pedal sacrifices quality sound for versatility. Not the case here. Between the katana, 1962, and red dirt, I have roughly four thousand great tones with my single coils/humbucker guitar. The compressor sounds great too. Very worthwhile pedal. It's making me seriously consider a Dark Side..... Btw, the only reason I didn't give it a 5 is a design thing. the jacks are too close together and not all cables will fit side by side like that. Oh well. First World problems.
