Limited edition Stahlhammer with a dark blue case and elegant yellow script labeling.

Keeley STAHLHAMMER Distortion is a hard hitting distortion pedal with no equal at Keeley Electronics. For cranked British amp sounds, this unique pedal design delivers. Keeley has combined classic high gain amp distortion and added a tube amp style EQ to give you a wealth of tones. This unique structure has two modes of operation - High Gain/Tube Saturation switchable from the right side of the pedal. The three tone controls, Bass - Middle - Treble, give you a fantastic range of amp sounds that you will be both familiar with and find easy to dial in.

Distortion - Full and thick distortion with hard-clipping style diodes to ground. Based on the LM1458 with its slow slew rate, this pedal just rips for a taking a Strat or Paul in thick and rich heavy clipping. Need something that sounds just like your amp when it just starts to break up? Turn this down to about 9 O'clock and you've got your amp's tone nailed.

Volume - We've added a 3x make-up gain output buffer to this pedal so that you'll always be able to drive your amp with authority.

Tube Amp Eq
Bass - This is for your low end response, around 100Hz and lower.
Middle - This affects frequencies from 800Hz to about 1.6KHz. You can heavily scoop out the mids, or push them to really stand out!
Treble - This is to roll of treble or push upper frequencies around 3.2KHz and higher.

Gain Switch: Two modes of distortion are available from switch mounted on the right hand side of the pedal.
Switch UP - Tube Amp Crunch. Just like your three channel amp's Crunch Channel - LED lights up and is actually part of the clipping circuit.
Switch DOWN - Lead Mode. This is like your amp's Lead Channel - LED does not light, higher gain, more saturation.
