Filaments High Gain Distortion
Keeley Electronics, the leading manufacturer of pedals built in the U.S., announces the release of our most potent and aggressive metal stompbox to date: the Filaments High Gain Distortion Pedal. The Filaments accurately replicates high-gain tube amps by layering 3 stages of gain while providing 7 ultra-flexible ways to EQ the tone.
The Filaments has more flexibility in tone-shaping than any other Keeley stompbox. Level and Gain set the stage for rich layers of high gain tube-amp saturation. Bass and Body give you the punch and authority of a gain monster no matter what size amp you are playing. Even if you’re running a 10-inch speaker the bass and body controls will give you the low end bass response you need. Running through a 4×12 already? Just dial back the body control to keep the sound tight and focused. Have an amp that’s hard to push? The Boost and Crunch switches give you two different levels of gain and compression to get your edge just right for your tone. The Presence control works with the Bright control to give any guitar or pickup combination the authority to stand up and shout. Lastly, the Treble control gives you that added range of highs to make your amp sing.
Style is a Metal Head’s Swagger
Metal is more nuanced and subdivided that nearly any other style of music outside the classical stuff. The Keeley Filaments High Gain Distortion pedal feels your pain, brother. So of course its amazing 7 layer toneshaping lets you chameleon into any of these types of metal: Christian or Death Metal, Black Metal or Folk Metal, both types of Core, Grind and Metal. Crust Punk or Glam Metal? Progressive Jazz Metal or just good old Stoner Metal? We got ya covered. Get a Keeley Filaments High Gain Distortion pedal and pound it out !! Get creative! Create your own Metal.

No.1 is the original KHDK Overdrive. Powered by our unique proprietary circuit, the No.1 was born from years of passion and sweat, experimenting and tweaking with the tones we heard, loved and set out to perfect.
As versatile as it is bold, the No.1 is designed in the spirit of an overdriven tube amp. It features two gain controls which cascade the gain stages for a rich and harmonic overdrive. Gain one controls the first gain stage from a pure clean boost to a naturally compressing overdrive. Gain two shares one knob with the Bass control. It cleverly controls the gain and the low end of the next gain stage, which adds rich harmonics, bottom end and natural tube-like saturation to your tone. It is designed as an active high-pass filter for the second gain stage and will allow you to set the amount of bottom end with precision.
Made in the USA.
Although the new Cream & Onyx Beta sports a fresh look the circuit itself has not been changed and is sonically identical to the original cream and orange version.Made in Canada.
Conceived in the dark depths of Kirk Hammett’s mind and forged in the secret laboratories of KHDK, an iconic circuit has been perfected to achieve its full potential and create the ultimate tone, with all the control in your hands. The Ghoul Screamer is a multipurpose pedal, a true utility knife of overdrives, featuring three standard controls and five additional switches.
The dramatic versatility of the controls spans from a clean boost all the way to a massive overdrive. In addition to the three standard controls (drive, tone, volume) five switches have been added. This significantly enhances the sound palette and - together with carefully selected and tested parts - elevates the Ghoul Screamer to the highest class of stage and studio gear. Proudly built and hand-tested in Kentucky and complete with haunting artwork by San Francisco’s tattoo wizard Tim Lehi, the Ghoul Screamer has the makings of an icon. Made in the USA.
The Ghoul Screamer is a tube screamer on steroids.– Kirk Hammett
The BitQuest is a digital multi-effect pedal featuring the option of using the different effects with a high-gain digital distortion or clean (with expanded control). The different selectable effects patches are 8 carefully selected and hand-programmed effects that sound cool clean and with distortion. The 8 effects patches are selectable by the rotary switch (the knob right above the toggle switch). The different effects patches are as follows:
- High Pass & Low Pass Filters
- Bit Crusher with Sample Rate Reducer
- Infinite Reverb
- Notch Filter
- Ring Modulator
- Octave Pitch Shifter / Harmonizer
- Delay (5 ms to 1 second)
The No. 2 is KHDK’s original Clean Boost, utilizing the strength of KHDK’s unique circuit. Providing a warm, tube-like boost, it was designed for those who appreciate a natural and subtle gain. Best used as a tool for shaping your tone on a quality all-tube amp, the No. 2 allows the organic and transparent EQ controls to fully develop your tone.
