The pedal is centered around a DREAM microchip and will be released in January 2020.

Edmond, OK (November 25, 2019) -- Keeley Electronics announces the new release date of the Eccos Delay / Looper.

At Keeley Electronics, we strive for excellence with every effect we design. We have been working hard on the Eccos for the last two years, and as we approach our release date, we realize that we need a little more time to get things just right. Since its inception, the Eccos has gone through several revisions. The new DREAM microchip platform has opened up a world of new and exciting possibilities for us, but that comes with a price. Since it’s announcement at NAMM 2018, the Eccos has taken many forms and has gone through many developmental changes, the newest being a fully featured Looper included it the Eccos design. We are taking extra time and care to make sure that the Looper in the Eccos is more than an afterthought, and is shaping up to be a fully featured, robust looper. We want to make sure that not only the delay is perfect, but the looper is as well.

Having said that, we are updating our release date to January 16, 2020. This new date corresponds with the first day of Winter NAMM 2020. The Eccos will be available at your favorite Keeley dealer on that day.

“The Eccos Delay/Looper pedal has truly become our flagship design. It has eclipsed my wildest dreams. But, I need some more time to finish a couple sounds and features I want included in the product. It has to be perfect. I know you and all other guitar players will be amazed at what a musical instrument it is. The release date is now officially January 16th. Thank you for your patience.” -- Robert Keeley

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
