Keeley Electronics Releases the Katana Blues Drive

The pedal takes Katana Boost’s JFET stages and blends them together with a unique overdrive circuit.

Edmond, OK (September 22, 2014) -- Keeley Electronics today announced it is shipping the Katana Blues Drive effect pedal. The 100% hand-built Katana Drive is a unique and modern circuit that delivers layers of rich overdrive tone at a very low noise level.

With controls for level, drive, bass and treble the Katana Blues Drive makes it easy for players to dial in very low gain or richly saturated lead tones.

"With active tone controls and layered overdrive tones, the Katana Blues Drive feels rich and thick yet lets your guitar tone come through", said Robert Keeley, founder and chief engineer of Keeley Electronics. "To achieve this, we’ve taken the legendary tube clarity of our best-selling Katana Boost’s JFET stages and blended them together with a unique overdrive circuit that’s been influenced by our award-winning overdrive pedal modifications."

Like all of Keeley Electronics’ designs, the Katana Drive is hand-built in the USA using the finest components and construction techniques. It is housed in a beautifully powder-coated and rugged enclosure, includes true bypass switching, and features a 2-year limited lifetime warranty with world-class Keeley customer support.

The Keeley Electronics is available for $199.
