Aided by a reputation for high quality products and famous customers such as Brad Paisley, Keeley Electronics is now one of the world’s leading guitar effects pedal manufacturers who not only specialize in sought after pedal modifications but have plenty of popular original creations as well. Born out of founder Robert Keeley’s garage in 2001, Keeley Electronics first made a name for themselves by rebuilding and modifying old effects units – starting with a Ross compressor – until finally hitting it big with their version of the Ibanez TS9 which was quickly adopted by several artists such as Peter Frampton, Jon Herington and Ike Willis.
Currently located in Edmond, Oklahoma, Keeley Electronics continues to provide unique guitar effects pedals that are as highly regarded in tone as they are in quality by staying true to Robert Keeley’s commitment to carefully selecting electronic components for a sound that is truly one of a kind – even when the pedals themselves aren't!
ProAudioLand is proud to be an authorized Lindy Fralin dealer for many years.
