Sweet, singing distortion.
Keeley’s Low Gain Overdrive Effect. The White Sands Luxe Drive.
Inspired by the faintest rounding of your tone when you start to push a tube, this is Keeley’s low gain drive solution. The Keeley White Sands pedal uses asymmetrical clipping that clips or distorts half of the guitar signal more than the other half. With this type of clipping you simulate some of the characteristics of a tube amplifier. It’s also in the clipping stage that we keep the bass response tight by making sure bass frequencies don’t get muddy when they are distorted. What you get is pure Rock’n’Roll with the Keeley White Sands.
The White Sands Luxe Drive uses a different tone control network that is found in many tube drive pedals. Fan of the Keeley Red Dirt Overdrive? Well think of this as a low drive version with a tone control network that doesn’t boost the mid-range frequencies. The Tone range is controlled yet very useful in dialing the high-end response. Want to dial in a transparent tone to see if the pedal can remain true to your guitar’s tone? Go ahead! Do you want to use that neck pickup on your Les Paul or other humbuckers-equipped guitar but not have it turn to mush? Don’t worry, the Luxe Drive isn’t about putting a mask on your tone, in fact it retains amazing transparency.
Okay, need to kick it up a notch and hit the crowd with some dirt? Sandy Mode – drive that’s smooth, feels Really Good and has that snarl of authenticity. SANDY is what you need when you aren’t trying to be sensitive!
We know players pay a lot of money for their guitars. Why have a pedal destroy your signal? The White Sands uses the JFET input buffer, like what’s used in the Red Dirt and Seafoam chorus, to capture your pickup’s nuances without loading them down.
For those familiar with the Keeley line-up, this falls into a range between the sparkling clarity of the Katana and the rough’n’ready Red Dirt pedal.
