Keeley Blues Disorder Overdrive & Distortion Effects Pedal Black/Blue

The Keeley Blues Disorder Overdrive & Distortion pedal gives you a versatile palette of analog overdrive and distortion tones perfect for any serious guitarist. Keeley combined two distinct drive circuits to craft four signature sounds in one innovative stompbox. With the turn of a switch, you can move between a smooth, Blues Breaker-inspired overdrive and a harder-edged distortion for heavier styles. The Blues Disorder's simple but clever design lets you swap tone stacks and gain stages to create hybrid overdrive flavors all your own. Two Complete Drive Circuits, Endless Tonal Possibilities At its heart, the Blues Disorder contains separate overdrive and distortion circuits that you can activate independently or blend together. The overdrive side provides a soft, tube-like clipping reminiscent of a cranked Bluesbreaker amp. Switch to the distortion circuit for a harder, more aggressive tone ideal for heavier genres. Or, combine them for overdriven tones with a touch of grit. Two toggle switches give you instant access to the overdrive, distortion or a mix of both. The tonal variations are nearly endless. Tailor Your Tone With Interchangeable Tone Stacks Not only does the Blues Disorder offer two types of drive, it provides two distinct tone stacks to shape your sound. In overdrive mode, the active tone circuit boosts midrange frequencies for a classic Bluesbreaker-inspired tone. Switch to distortion mode and a more transparent high-frequency filter lets the natural tone of your pickups shine through. Swap between the tone stacks in either drive mode for different voicings. You have the versatility to craft your perfect overdrive or distortion tone with the turn of a single switch. Buffered or True Bypass Switching The Blues Disorder's buffered bypass prevents the tone-sucking signal loss associated with long cable runs and large pedalboards. For vintage pedals or a pure analog signal path, easily engage the truTwo complete analog drive circuits: hard-clipping distortion and soft clipping overdrive. Toggle tone stacks and gain stages: create hybrid overdrives by swapping Drive and Tone circuits. True Bypass or Buffered Bypass: use buffer to improve rig's tone, switch to true bypass in two seconds. Keeley pedals engineered in tone lab and sonically perfected with studio and touring musicians.

He’s talking about meeting Farnon—the arranger, conductor, and composer with credits alongside Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and Vera Lynn, among many others, plus a host of soundtracks—after Quincy Jones told the guitarist he was “the greatest arranger in all the world.”
