This might be what you've been looking for in an overdrive/fuzz box! The blend between the two is simply wonderful!

This might be what you've been looking for in an overdrive/fuzz box! The blend between the two is simply wonderful! The Fuzz Head is designed to work like Fuzz Face pedals that many players use as a LEAD BOOST. A Fuzz Face can be muddy, lacking note definition, too bassy, and lacking sustain. An overdrive sometimes doesn't give enough or is too smooth. In contrast, our design is transparent, has a better frequency response, and gives you that cutting edge for lead breaks.

  • The Heart of this pedal is a NPN Germanium Transistor.

  • Additional Gain Stage, a Darlington Pair of high gain silicon transistors for tons of volume output. This is great for overdriving tube amps or other overdrive pedals.

  • Buffered output so that it can drive pedals or amps with a nice high current and low impedance signal.

  • True-Bypass--offers you a clean true signal when the pedal is off.

  • Large Blue LED, a Killer Keeley Trademark!

  • Silicon/Germanium Toggle switch. This is like a gain/style switch. The "SI" mode inserts two diodes (one silicon and one germanium in parallel) in the distortion circuit so you can have a modern twist on a vintage sound. It increases the gain and compression a bit for more sustain and for more of an overdrive mode.

    The "GE" mode is just raw and open sounding!

  • Very Transparent and Dynamic. Taking the best qualities of the germanium designs and the overdrives. Roll back the volume on your guitar for clean sounds, a variety of Tones, Textures, and Natural Fuzz/Overdrive!

  • Internal Drive-Range Control. Lets you set up the range of the external drive control (FUZZ). Perfect for fine tuning light overdrive tones to raging Fuzz.


  • Simple to setup and use as a Lead Boost! Use the Fuzz Head in conjunction with our TS9, BD-2, DS-1 mods for a great dual pedal setup!
