The third reverb pedal from Keeley offers three different modes: Compressed, Distorted, and Flanged.

Edmond, OK (December 29, 2015) -- Keeley Electronics today announced it is shipping their new Gold Star Reverb effect pedal. The Gold Star provides a unique and modern way to enjoy reverb effects only available in the studio to guitar players in a stompbox format. The Gold Star is the third in Keeley’s studio themed reverb pedals. It provides musicians the tools for exciting sounds and textures. Keeley’s new reverb will help you forge new and unorthodox reverb spaces.

The Gold Star Reverb offers three different reverb modes: Compressed, Distorted and Flanged Reverb. These were previously available only if reverb and an effect was sent to a send/return system in a studio. Compressed Mode is meant to simulate the crowded main studio floor at Gold Star Records during the famous “Wall of Sound” session. Compression and filtering is simulated in the pedal like that of the old RCA 44 mics and tube consoles. This pedal offers a new “ducking” style reverb that is perfect for rhythmic leads or staccato playing where you want the reverb to stick out at the end of the notes. Distorted Reverb Mode is meant to be an exaggeration of dozens of people in the echo chambers at Gold Star with the sound of distortion produced via an overdriven compressor and maxed-out fader distortion. Flanged Reverb Mode is an imagined echo chamber that swirls with tape flanging. Add ultra-wide flanger sounds with the wow and flutter of a warped 7” 45rpm single and you get to the heart of the Keeley’s Gold Star Reverb.

The Keeley Electronics Gold Star Reverb goes is on sale today Wednesday December 23rd, 2015 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.
