Keeley Electronics has just introduced its latest offering to the pedal world, the Germanium Amplifier.
Each pedal was designed and hand-built by Robert Keeley to act as “the very first, if not the only pedal between your guitar and amp”. Keeley spent hours working on each unit, improvising with the germanium transistors to ensure he made each pedal truly unique.
Keeley collaborated with artist Phillip Ortiz in designing the aesthetics of the pedal, which features one knob able to be easily controlled by foot, the company’s new logo, and their traditional blue LED. The pedals are made with a Tungsram AC125 germanium PNP transistor, and also incorporate a bias control for adjustable gain.
