What We Think

This baby has everything you're looking for in a pedal, capable of taking you from gentle overdrive to searing distortion at the flick of a switch. The Phat switch gives you increased bass response, the Clipping switch lets choose between smooth sustain or tight crunch and the Tone and Drive controls let you dial in everything in between. I especially enjoyed the flexability that the Tone control allowed in achieving the perfect blend of highs, no matter what. You can definitely tell where this pedal got its mythical inspiration from!  

Manufacturer's Description from Keeley

Keeley Oxblood Overdrive
 
The New Voice Of Rock and Roll
 
When inspiration hits, you need the voice to proclaim it.  When you need that voice, count on the Keeley Oxblood Overdrive to be your beast of burden.
 
The Keeley Oxblood Overdrive is our response to everyone cloning the “Mythical Beast” pedal. We decided to build an original design. We wanted to build a new circuit that let players blend from perfectly clean to amp-crushing roar.  We wanted that impossibly huge and focused midrange that makes any guitar… Strat, Paul, Tele, sound incredible.  We knew we could do it our way and offer you more tone.  So we designed this pedal over the course of a few days to outdo the old pedal.  I am confident we not only drew blood, we crafted a #killer
 
Clean, Distortion, Fuzz – It’s All There
 
With the Keeley Oxblood Overdrive you roll off the Drive Control down and get a perfectly clean sound, you can dial in any amount of distortion and volume to stomp an amp into pure tonal nirvana.  The Keeley Oxblood Overdrive offers you two ways to clip and saturate your signal with overtones by selecting carefully chosen diodes.  Magical and Mythical, Monstrous and Most Satisfying they are indeed.
 
The key to the ultimate overdrive in our opinion is the ability to control five different parameters.
 
Bass response.  Phat Switch, cuts bass response to give you that classic Screamer or K-like midrange shelving.  The bass response when cut is saturated with a hint of 2nd order harmonics.  Punchy and full yet not overbearing.  It cuts like a buffalo, what can I say?
Clipping.  Sometimes there just ain’t enough gain in the world.  Well not with this beast. The Clipping Switch gives you the ability to sing with near infinite sustain or just stand on your amp like a chief.  From Texas Rock to Bold Pretty Boy Strat Sounds that make ya wanna die.
Tone Control.  You need to be able to dial in the highs perfectly or nothing else matters right?  The highs are what makes it ear candy or ice picks.  Heck we give you the range to do whatever the heck you want to do.
Volume.  You have to be able to put the pedal to the metal whenever you darn well chose.  Voltage doubling in our circuit gives you just that.  Headroom for days.  Slay an amp, leave it a bloody mess.  No you won’t blow tubes, but you will have them at the right temperature to make them glow with delight.
Drive.  What? You want me to describe Drive?  Shoot, from “Is it on?” cleans to searing sustain and saturation.  It pushes you.  Compels you to play.  Non-stop playing…
Midrange.  Wait.  Didn’t I say 5?  Well, the 6th sign of a wonderful overdrive pedal is what’s under the hood.  It’s masterful creation of sultry mids.  The kind of mids singers or cellos are known for.  Throaty and powerful.  Not just a woman tone, but a manly roar.  Not congested and stuffed up.  Focused and brilliant.
Trifecta
 
The Keeley Oxblood Overdrive was designed by Robert Keeley and Craighton Hale with a lot of help and insight from Jack Orman.  Jack Orman has been a pioneer in the modern world of effects for 20 years.  His thoughts and ideas are incorporated by nearly every boutique builder out there.  Here is your chance to hear a brand new creation designed to outperform any of the clones.
