Just in time for the holidays we are reissuing the Keeley 2 Knob Vintage Compressor. We will be offering 45 of these “Signature Edition” (named for the markings in Robert’s own handwriting on the face) on our website and another 50 through dealers. Our classic 2 knob compressor is one of the pedals that brought on the boutique pedal revolution. It has been used by nearly every pro guitar player in the business. It is the industry standard by which other compressors are judged.
The classic squishy sound has been made popular by country guitar players, blues and rock legends and have graced thousands of P&W bands pedal-boards. The sound is instantly good, instantly classic. For tremendous sustain, it’s the Keeley Compressor.
All of our Compressors are made in the USA. The Keeley Compressor was given the Editor’s Pick Award from Guitar Player’s Magazine and has won many more awards in it’s 14 years in production. It is a true audiophile and studio grade compressor with an exotic rack mount quality in a stomp box form. The sound alone will inspire your creativity.
The Keeley Compressor effect has nothing but tone tested components and true bypass switching and the effect switching incorporates a triple pole-double throw switch! The user will marvel at the clean unaffected sound when in the bypass mode and the compressor has an LED for effect indication. The Keeley Compressor was the first effect pedal to feature a blue LED.
The sound quality of the Keeley comp is unheard of in the stomp-box arena and is only seen in the high-end, very expensive rack-mount or tube equipment.
Standard 9V DC battery and AC adapter connection. Low Current Draw – 5mA.
We continue to offer the 4 Knob Keeley Compressor, with Input Clipping and Attack Controls on the front..

“The Keeley Compressor is by far the best compressor for pedal steel and lap steel guitar that I’ve ever used. It is equally at home on stage or in the studio and it stands up to or exceeds any of the rack mount gear I’ve used in the past.”
– Mr. Gary Morse (Brooks & Dunn)
“Yours is the only compressor to come along since then that surpasses the tried and true MXR fave. His comment was simply that after 25 years of only using the old dyna comp, the Keeley Compressor is the first one to warrant a change in the signal chain!
– Mr. DAN HUFF
“Hey Mr. Keeley. I have to thank you for making this compressor. It really is an awesome tone tool. I never would’ve even imagined using a compressor until I tried yours. What you don’t get is a really obtrusive “effect” that screams compression at the top of it’s lungs while it sucks the dynamics out of your playing. What you do get is an awesome tone machine that organically enhances your natural sound in an extremely transparent way. Lyrical and expressive are words that come to mind. Thanks again.”
