Mod scientist Robert Keeley creates a custom shop overdrive from their Super Phat Mod Germanium and adds thick and thoaty gain tones that are dynamic and add loads of sustain.

Edmond, OK (August 9, 2018) -- Keeley Electronics is proud to announce the Retro Super Germanium Overdrive, a custom shop overdrive that blasts our Super Phat Mod into the stratosphere!

We started with the drive from our Super Phat Mod Germanium, then kicked it into, well.. HYPERDRIVE! The Keeley Retro Super Germanium Phat Mod reads your fingers and mind to give you supernatural quantities of gain. It’s a fuzz, it’s a drive, and it’s a cranked amp all in one! The Retro Super is ultra responsive and has maximum dynamic gain.

At the heart of the Keeley Retro Super Germanium Phat Mod is our germanium amplifier stage. Designing this additional gain stage into the front of the “amp tone-stack” did wonders; it amazingly simulated a retro-fuzz pedal connected to a cranked amp.

We didn’t want to let it idle there, so we completely opened up the secondary gain stage so that the dynamics would jump out of your speakers. The result is SUPER! The Retro Super is perfect for thick and thoaty gain tones that are dynamic and add loads of sustain.

Any fan of the Phat Mod knows that it performs perfectly in low AND high gain applications. Emphasis on the AND. So why not have two?! Problem solved: the Retro Super teams up with anything.

The Keeley Electronics Retro Super will be available 08-09-2018 at dealers worldwide as well as for $179.

Diatonic sequences are powerful tools. Here’s how to use them wisely.



• Understand how to map out the neck in seven positions.
• Learn to combine legato and picking to create long phrases.
• Develop a smooth attack—even at high speeds.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
