Keely Omni Reverb

When you really think about it, it's hard to grasp just how much reverb contributes to the feel of music. Reverb defines the mood, the space you hear, and it can even define an entire genre, an entire time period of music. Space … time. The most central elements of reality! The Omni Reverb is designed to fill the space and time around your notes with perfect depth and measure, and offers three perfect settings for guitar: Room, Spring, and Plate. Because nothing captures all of the elements of classic guitar tones like these three reverbs. With the Omni Reverb you simply select the style and then dial in the Dwell length. Add whatever volume Level to fill your guitar space and you're ready to get back to making timeless music.

Guitar store staff have better things to do than clean your instrument, so a well-loved but unsoiled 6-string like this is going to command a higher trade-in value than one that comes in covered in years of residue.

Believe it or not, you can boost the value of your instrument by making everyone's life a little easier … and cleaner!

Twenty years ago, Joe Bonamassa was a struggling musician living in New York City. He survived on a diet of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and ramen noodles that he procured from the corner bodega at Columbus Avenue and 83rd Street. Like many dreamers waiting for their day in the sun, Joe also played "Win for Life" every week. It was, in his words, "literally my ticket out of this hideous business." While the lottery tickets never brought in the millions, Joe's smokin' guitar playing on a quartet of albums from 2002 to 2006—So, It's Like That, Blues Deluxe, Had to Cry Today, and You & Me—did get the win, transforming Joe into a guitar megastar.
