Keeley Electronics, the leading manufacturer of pedals built in the U.S., announces the release of their most potent and aggressive metal stompbox to date: the Filaments High Gain Distortion Pedal. The Filaments accurately replicates high-gain tube amps by layering 3 stages of gain while providing 7 ultra-flexible ways to EQ the tone.
The Filaments has more flexibility in tone-shaping than any other Keeley stompbox. Level and Gain set the stage for rich layers of high gain tube-amp saturation. Bass and Body give you the punch and authority of a gain monster no matter what size amp you are playing. Even if you’re running a 10-inch speaker the bass and body controls will give you the low end bass response you need. Running through a 4×12 already? Just dial back the body control to keep the sound tight and focused. Have an amp that’s hard to push? The Boost and Crunch switches give you two different levels of gain and compression to get your edge just right for your tone. The Presence control works with the Bright control to give any guitar or pickup combination the authority to stand up and shout. Lastly, the Treble control gives you that added range of highs to make your amp sing.
Metal is more nuanced and subdivided that nearly any other style of music outside the classical stuff. The Keeley Filaments High Gain Distortion pedal feels your pain, brother. So of course its amazing 7 layer toneshaping lets you chameleon into any of these types of metal: Christian or Death Metal, Black Metal or Folk Metal, both types of Core, Grind and Metal.
