The Keeley Monterey Rotary Fuzz Vibe features a vintage fuzz, rotary speaker, vibe, harmonic and auto wah options, octave up or octave down controls, as well an expression control to give you a variety of sounds. The pedal is made to emulate a rich, full, classic two-transistor fuzz sound, while the effect options are essentially the controls to take you right into space. Of course, if you’re looking to add more sounds yourself, simply (“simply”) remove the bottom of the pedal and start playing with the DIP switch to change the order of effects! Basically there’s no reason the Keeley Monterey Rotary Fuzz Vibe shouldn’t sound absolutely killer.
“When given the chance to bring my own personalized artwork to this pedal, I wanted something that not only represents how incredibly vibrant and colorful [Jimi Hendrix’s] music is, but also speaks to what a joyful experience it is to play through this pedal. Lia Sued is the incredibe graphic designer who brought this pedal to life, and Patrick Churvis is the visionary director who is responsible for the Hendrix inspired video we created,” said Henderson of the pedal.
“Robert Keeley is the first brand ambassador who reached out to me on social media years ago to tell me he loved what I was doing. He is the first person who was willing to offer support to me as an artist, when I had very few notable credits to my name. It is an incredibly full circle moment to have this collaboration come to life, as I couldn’t think of a better company to do a piece of signature gear with. I hope this pedal brings you as much joy as it has brought me.”
The Keeley Monterey Rotary Fuzz Vibe is available now through the Robert Keeley website.
