52 pedals, week 21—Keeley Phase 24

Tonight (sometime) here in Sunny Queensland—that’s in Australia for the geographically challenged—a large portion of the adult population is going to be fixated on a little sporting event called State of Origin. Me, I could care less. I’m not phased at all. The only thing that phases me is a good guitar pedal. Particularly a good phase pedal. Good thing I discovered the Keeley Phase 24 then! It’s delivering 2 and 4 stage phasing like nobody’s business. I think it may be in a league* of its own.

* Yes, this week’s article is going to full of football puns. We’ll all have a ball!

The 4 stage phase setting seems to be the more traditional phase effect that tackles you from the moment you stomp on that pedal like it was a competitor’s skull. I’m pretty sure you don’t need to stomp that hard on the Keeley Phase 24 or a competitor’s skull really. The 2 stage phase setting is a more subtle phase effect along the lines of … nothing football related. It’s just better than that.

I couldn’t let a weekly wishlist article pass without referring to the video evidence to hopefully back up what I’ve been describing. Let’s cross to that video evidence now.

Try to dispute that awesome tone. You can’t. It’s there and it scored perfect results from both the 2 stage and 4 stage phasing. Sometimes though even the armchair expert will argue with the professional opinions. That’s why the Internet is better than any football match. Additional supporting evidence!

I love the non-invasive phasing effects this pedal seems to be capable of. And it’s simple too. The pedal has a switch that takes you from 2 stage to 4 stage phasing plus rate and blend controls. Obviously I don’t want to get regular phase pedal fans offside, but I think this phase pedal may be perfect.

If I was younger, fitter, female and capable of cheering while wearing very a short skirt I’d have everybody as excited as me in regards to this pedal. I’m none of those things though. Luckily for us all the Keeley Phase 24 doesn’t require such fanfare. It’s quiet capable of winning over the fans on its own. You know you want to try one for yourself. I know I do.

Disclaimer: I’ve not played this guitar pedal. I have not experienced first-hand the sound or effects of this guitar pedal. That doesn’t matter. It looks awesome, it’s obviously played by winners and I want one.
