Jimi's Favorite Sounds in One Box

Keeley engineered the Monterey multi-effects pedal to give you the essential tools needed to achieve the legendary tones of Jimi Hendrix. The modulation section of the pedal contains a rotary speaker sound, a vibe, and an autowah. And the fuzz circuit is appropriately warm and full sounding, while being very touch sensitive. In the Monterey, you'll also find a variable octave up and down that you can run in conjunction with any of the pedal's tones. The Monterey multi-effects revives one of the most important and influential moments in electric guitar.

Keeley Monterey Rotary Fuzz Vibe Multi-effects Pedal at a Glance:
  • Multiple modulation effects
  • Vintage-sounding fuzz
  • And so much more
Multiple modulation effects

From Jimi's use of a vibe on "Machine Gun" to the tone-defining wah work on "Voodoo Child," modulation was always a big part of his tonal palette. The Monterey packs all of those sounds into this one pedal, and it does so with quality and detail in mind. The rotary speaker sound uses cabinet simulation for a life-like feel, and the vibe effect is as deep and lush as you could ever want. Or utilize the Monterey's autowah tones for an open and detailed filter that takes you back to the electric guitar's golden years.

Vintage-sounding fuzz

The fuzz circuit onboard the Monterey Rotary Fuzz Vibe multi-effects pedal is based on the two-transistor fuzz sound that Jimi used to great effect on songs like "Foxey Lady" and "Star Spangled Banner." The fuzz's tone is warm and round but with enough top end to stay clear and punchy in a mix. Sweetwater players enjoy this kind of fuzz for how well it cleans up when you play lighter or roll the volume knob back on your guitar. This circuit nails that feature giving you any shade of gain you desire whether using single-coils or humbuckers.

And so much more

Keeley crammed even more features into the Monterey in addition to all of the gain and modulation options it already has. A variable octave knob blends in either an octave up or an octave down as you turn the control. This is wonderful for paring with the fuzz for an octavia-type of tone. The Monterey also works well as a speaker cabinet simulator if you turn on the rotary effect but stop the rate of rotation. And as if that weren't enough, an Expression pedal input offers you real-time control over modulation rate and the wah tones.

Keeley Monterey Rotary Fuzz Vibe Multi-effects Pedal Features:
  • Multi-effects pedal based around Jimi's legendary tones
  • Rotary speaker, vibe, and autowah modulation onboard
  • The fuzz circuit is full sounding and touch sensitive
  • Variable octave up and down
  • Expression pedal input can control mod speed or manual wah
  • Rotary cabinet simulation can be used with the rate turned off
The Keeley Monterey multi-effects pedal will help you nail Jimi's tones or find your own.

True Classic Sounds and Much More

I was very impressed with the true harmonic magic these pedals create AND save. I can play various guitars that I know the harmonic range they shine in,through these and they retain all that very well,but the Monterey adds tons of Mojo Option with every minor turn of the knobs. I love these pedals, they nail what they are advertised to do.

Fly High With The Voodoo Child

Pedal is smaller than I imagined. Keeley loaded 5 pedals into one,effectively/brilliantly. This pedal smoothly hits the Band Of Gypsies swirl,but can do sooooo much more. There are rich textures and tones that just explode through a good tube amp. Also plays well with other pedals! A simple MojoMojo,Behringer Wah,Keeley Monterey floor pedal set-up will do serious Voodoo Magic, giving any Texas blues player everything from SRV to JMH to EJ. AMAZING pedal from Sweetwater and Keeley.
5/5

Outstanding!!!

I buy pedals like most people drink water and the Keeley Monterey is one of the best pedals I ve bought in a while. It covers that "Hendrixy" sound better than any other pedal I own and there s plenty of other settings for your own sounds/style. I had no tracking problems with the octave settings. Does a lot for the price!!

Little Box , Full Of Rich Tone and Fun!!

First I want to thank Sweetwater and my rep Kenny Stratton for the best customer service in the world!Now I bought one of these pedals when they first arrived at Sweetwater.Once I received it I plugged in my Fender Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster thru my Vox AC10C1 amp and within seconds I had this big smile on my face and knowing I just got my favorite pedal.Every time I played thru this pedal I was amazed by its rich tone no matter where you had the knobs and switches ...you will hear the typical effects and so many new tones with this pedal..this is the fun part of this pedal..the sky is the limit .Only issue it stopped working after 2 days of having it (effect side would cut signal off) so I called Kenny and he patched me thru the Tech guys but I hung up and went to my computer and sent a email to Keeley Electronics ...Wow was I surprised when I received an answer within 24 hrs and I called and spoke with a young lady who was very professional who told me to send the pedal back and she would send me a new one.I received the new one and I was off to the races...within 2 to 3 weeks the pedal failed again the same issue as the first..I called Keeley and spoke with a young man name Aaron and he told me they had an issue with a chip and was sorry that I received 2 defective pedals and he would ship me a new one.I sent back the second pedal and within 2 days I received the 3 pedal...Aaron told me they corrected the issue they were having with this pedal.I have this to say..I want to Thank Robert Keeley and his staff for the quick and professional way they handled this issue and it only made me a fan of this company..I truly like a company that cares for the customers who buy their gear....I had wrote to many companies and never received an answer expectKeeley and Analog Alien Pedals (they also have great service).So thank you Mr. Keeley and Staff !!Buy this pedal you wont be disappointed by the many new tones you will discover and the super company that sells it and the one that makes it .

Disappointing...

I thought I would get this pedal and my fuzz, vibe, rotary, wah, octave needs would be handled in one box. I read so many great reviews and Keeley is known to be a good boutique pedal maker. I assumed by the name Monterey and from what I've read that this was a Hendrix in a box type of pedal, but when this finally arrived and I had a chance to play it, I was absolutely disappointed. Btw, I play an America Deluxe Strat though a Fender Twin and a Marshall DSL100, both with good tubes. First, the fuzz section. This does not sound like a Fuzz Face or anything that Jimi would have played, it's not a good fuzz at all, there's no magic to it, it sounds downright shrill when combined with the mod effects. Is it digital, sure seems like it. It's more of a rough distortion pedal and not even a good one at that. The vibe and rotary sound pretty nice I must say. There was a nice range to the effects, but heavens don't put the fuzz through these effects, especially loud - eek. The wah sounded ear piercing especially at band volumes. The auto-wah and cocked wah effects worked as described but maybe it was just me, I just didn't like the way it sounded and would not have used it in a band context. Which brings us to the octave knob. Why is this on here? It's a digital sounding octave effect that is in no way even close to an Octavia effect that Hendrix used. It's totally useless and sounds terrible like my old pitch shifter... the aliens have landed. I couldn't get any good Hendrix sounds of this pedal. I use to have a Foxrox Captain Coconut, which I regretfully sold, and there is simply no comparison. I will say, the build quality and the paint job looked great. It is a well made pedal, no doubt. Maybe I got a bad one? In the end, I had to return it and am totally bummed about it, it's a real shame as I looked forward to getting this pedal and checked the tracking every hour. Your mileage may vary, of course....
