Enter here for your chance to WIN a Keeley Electronics Compressor Plus!


Compressor Plus

The Keeley Compressor is the most popular boutique compressor in the world. With well over 95,000 compressors built in our shop we have an expert understanding of compression, limiting, and sustain. We know what it takes to make an instrument sound like it's been professionally recorded. We know how to make your guitar jump from the mix. We know how to make it fun and easy to play. Keeley Compression is how. The Keeley Compressor Plus is the first true advancement in our 2 and 4 knob compressor line. The new features are simple and straight forward. Now there is a simple Release Switch that is tuned for single coils or humbuckers. No more wondering if you have the attack or release set right. Your humbuckers will have all the attack and punch that they should. Our team designed a gorgeous sounding Tone Control which emphasizes the most sensitive harmonics that can be lost in compression. The Compressor Plus now sports a Blend Control that retains the peaks in your playing and, more importantly, the proper phasing of your guitar signal. The Keeley Compressor Plus offers the same gorgeous push of frequencies and sweetening of tone that the old comps gave you, now with the flexibility to easily handle any instrument.

Let's take it a step further and discuss how to combine multiple amps to achieve even more complex, richer tones.
