Keeley Electronics Unveils the Seafoam+ Vibrato Chorus

An internal switch allows the pedal to be used for either guitar or bass.

Edmond, OK (November 10, 2015) -- Keeley Engineering ( announced the all new Seafoam Plus. The advanced Chorus, Double Tracker, and Reverb designed on their new DSP platform is internally switchable to be tuned for either Guitar or Bass Instruments. The analog voiced chorus and modulation are designed to give players new and vintage sounds in a small effect pedal.

“We have expanded on the success of our Automatic Double Tracking and Chorus by combining the sounds on our new DSP platform using the 24-bit Spin FV-1” said Robert Keeley, Electrical Engineer and CEO. “We have created algorithms that are new and unique in the stompbox world. We have crafted really warm sounding, true chorus tones and added pitch tuning without modulation and reverb that is not possible in the analog world.” The unit has 12 modes of operation. Any of the three outside selectable modes (ADT, Seafoam, Dual Chorus) can be used in either Guitar or Bass tuning by an internal selector switch. In the bass guitar mode the reverb is dropped in favor of adding static flanger modes and tremolo modes. In bass guitar mode all frequencies are shifted to fit bass player’s needs. There is also Vintage and Mode selectable modes that further expand the tone of the pedal. A new mix control for the Seafoam Plus Chorus allows players to go from completely dry to all wet, allowing the player to use it as a pitch vibrato or in an effects loop. The Seafoam Plus Chorus is designed and hand built in Edmond, OK.

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.
