Comments about Keeley Katana Pre Amp Guitar Effect Pedal:

I LOVE this clean boost. I place this boost at the very end of my chain and it adds such great "fatness" and improves the overall signal. I'm probably going to get another boost to place in from of my OD's to drive them a little bit more also. Definitely recommend this pedal.

Sweet Sound

By Harold Epright

from Wisconsin

Comments about Keeley Katana Pre Amp Guitar Effect Pedal:

This pedal is awesome because it has two very cool features. It is either a normal clean boost which you'd use if you like your tone. As well as a boost which gives the tone a bigger sound. It is great and loud. Also the blue LED is easy to see on stage!! I have owned the Katana for a month and it continues to perform!

    Comments about Keeley Katana Pre Amp Guitar Effect Pedal:

    Use your earplugs! This pedal has warmth, great tone, and fattens and boosts your signal. This pedal will boost your signal to incredible heights. Great for semi-clean heavy riffs. It sounds a bit nasty in a good way with no distortion. Killer pedal. I definitely recommend.

    I was looking for a signal boost pedal and debating between this and a couple others, I'm happy with the Katana. If you're on the fence, get it.

    TONE KING!!

    By Colin Tume

    from Australia

    Comments about Keeley Katana Pre Amp Guitar Effect Pedal:

    Awesome product. Makes me want to look at the rest of their range
    I had a problem in that I needed to boost my volume but My Rig doesnt have an Effects Loop. I looked around for awhile eventually getting steered towards the Katana, everything I had tried previously just went muddy.

    The Katana on clean channel just boosts the signal nicely and makes for an excellent lead boost. I have never been so impressed with a pedal before. Its robust and the side wheel just makes sense.
    built like a tank. Although I would hate to step on the Speed knob whilst adjusting
    For what it is a botique pedal its still a good price.

    Keeley Katana is a Keeper!

    By jddot

    from Muscle Shoals, AL

    Comments about Keeley Katana Pre Amp Guitar Effect Pedal:

    Extremely happy about this purchase and will always keep this pedal with me.
    Again, I was looking for a pedal to increase my volume without added a lot of noise and distortion. Looked around at a lot of web pages, reviews, and music stores; then decided on the Keeley Katana. Just what I was looking for. Increases my volume without taking away from my tone. Also works great with my acoustic sound. Lovely pedal.
    Haven't had it a year yet, but no problems to date. Seems well made. Didn't read about any problems when checking this pedal out.
    As always with a Keeley pedal, pricely but worth it.

    Clear and smart.

    By Diego S.

    from Central America

    Comments about Keeley Katana Pre Amp Guitar Effect Pedal:

    This pedal gives you a beautiful clear tone, however it could also provide a little drive if you want it, by pulling the knob out of the Katana. I would like to emphasize that I really liked the speedo knob that can be controlled with the foot. Clear and smart.

    Subtle, but very nice effects pedal.

    By NewMartinFan

    from Midwest

    Comments about Keeley Katana Pre Amp Guitar Effect Pedal:

    With the dial pushed in, you get a completely clean boost. No noise, not distortion -- just a clean boost. Very nice.With the dial pulled out, however, you get some tone changes. Your tone will become a little fuller, rounder, and glassier. And if you dial up past five or so, you begin getting a little overdrive.In sum, a nice pedal for those who are chasing a round, full, clean, glassy strat tone -- the John Mayer "Bold as Love" cover tone.

    Awesome, multifunctional pedal.

    By Jonathan

    from Tyler, TX

    Comments about Keeley Katana Pre Amp Guitar Effect Pedal:

    This pedal is great because it does multiple things. 1) You can turn it on and turn the dial to about 7 and you get a boost clean that won't dirty up your chords with distortion. 2) Turn it to 10 and pull the knob out and it boosts your lead very similar to a good tube screamer. 3) Also works as a volume boost if you get it right on the dial. Great pedal, I recommend using a AC Adapter not just the battery. And get it if you don't have any pedal for your clean other than your amps default clean! BORING!

    Amazing Pedal

    By Brad

    from Colorado

    Comments about Keeley Katana Pre Amp Guitar Effect Pedal:

    The Keeley Katana Boost pedal is amazing and has very low noise. The Dial that adjusts the volume is placed at a strange place, and it makes it hard to plug it in and keep all of the wires out of the way, but other than that, this is the best boost you can buy.

    Works great as a signal booster

    By Nate

    from Decatur, Ga

    Comments about Keeley Katana Pre Amp Guitar Effect Pedal:

    This pedal works great if you're happy with your tone and need that extra volume boost for solos. My main setup is a Les Paul Custom with the Keeley Fuzz Head. When it's time for a solo, you just stomp on this box and you get the volume you need. I keep the speedo knob pushed in, set at "10". When it's pulled out, it adds a nasty tone that doesn't work for me, but it might be great for someone else. It's got a good, solid design, but my only complaint is that you have to use a screwdriver to change the battery. So I solved that problem by using a DC adaptor.
