I love my Trutron. But an FYI


NEW Keeley Team-Built Pedal Next Week!
Say hello to the Keeley Neutrino (Codename: Parliament of Owls). This little guy is the best sounding small footprint classic envelope filter that any of us have ever heard. We've fallen so in love with this circuit that it seems only right to have it next in our series of Team Built limited edition pedals, hand made by Robert Keeley and Craighton Hale, in the design lab here at Keeley HQ. They will all be built, hand signed and numbered, and we will only be doing a total of 80 pieces at a price of $199 for this introductory run. These will go on sale on Wednesday, and WILL NOT LAST LONG! Keep your eyes open for a mailer with more info, as well as man update on our site rkfx.com This circuit is so good that we will be doing this as a production unit, but they will be out a little later with a price of $249 and the graphics will change a bit. This is sure to be the most fun you've had with a pedal in a long time!

In other news, the Katana Boost, for a long time our second highest selling pedal, has had some circuit revisions and has all of our jaws dropped around the shop with it's sparkling clarity. We were honestly amazed! The revisions have already made it to the models we're shipping now and to celebrate we're offering it in this mailer to return customers at 15% off for the next week, along with the popular Red Dirt overdrive, and our new Seafoam Chorus. Great saving, great sound, and great made in USA quality, how can you go wrong!?!

For now, enjoy these VIP discounts on Keeley Classics!

The enthusiasm is all well and good, but it's hard to get worked up about dropping the cash without knowing more details. There are a lot of quack boxes out there today. Give us the scoop! :cool:

Oh wait, you're just passing this on. How's the TruTron working out for you? A friend of mine here in Boulder just got one. I need to check it out.

TruTron is the one true tron. I had a Mu a while back and that was fragile and finicky. This thing is robust, better range of sounds.

Worth the scratch for sure.

I bought one of of the first 80. There was a clock that counted down until it went on sale. It made me do it. I have a Qtron that I have turned on in years but that damn clock made me think I HAD to have this one.

What's with the subatomic particle names for the tron-type pedals?!

Be skeptical of all fx pedals. They are, by nature, deceptive. A mystery inside a box, few other products are as blatantly ambiguous. Some go so far as to goop the circuit to dissuade anyone from tracing it and discovering that it's actually a modified rip off of some other person's hard work. Fx pedal hype is part tone envy and part placebo effect. I for one will never buy another fx pedal. I will be building all my fx from now on.

I received my Neutrino today... it's not the "special" preproduction one, just the regular production model. I think it's #208 based on the serial number. It could be the 208 millionth and it would all be the same to me. I happen to love it... better than my Emma which I have sworn by for years. Having never owned a Mu-Tron or the Tru-Tron, I can't say how they stack up but compared to the Emma it's much more musical to my ear, and a lot closer to the Jerry tone I've been shooting for. It's much easier to find the sweet spot on this one than the Emma, and I'm very much looking forward to getting my Jerry Strat back together so I can use the effects loop and buffer with the new pedal. I ordered up a new body that should be here in a few days... hopefully I can get the whole thing together by the end of the weekend so I can report back.

What's the general consensus on the Keeley for those who have tried it? I'm sure happy with mine :cool:

I got one and love it also!! Right out of the box it sounded very nice. Can't compare to the mu or tru, but I like it way better than my old og Qtron. Always had to fiddle to find the sweet spot and it took up way too much space on the board. Keeley nailed this one IMO.
