Keeley Electronics releases the Sojourner Fuzz, a shoe-gaze dream pedal.
The Sojourner contains a thick, creamy fuzz coupled with an all new set of musical reverbs soundscapes, in a dual pedal format. Chief engineer Robert Keeley put his team to the task of creating a first-in-class fuzz/reverb pedal that would allow players to create dreamy soundscapes of texture, color, and emotion with unique and innovative reverb sounds not heard before.
The fuzz side of the Sojourner is Keeley Electronics’ popular Psi Fuzz, a highly modified take on the Op Amp Pi. Keeley’s layered op-amp-based fuzz has the added warmth and cream of a vintage germanium transistor output stage. It produces thick, full range fuzz with enhanced midrange presence, tight bass and an overall polish and compression that creates perfect fuzz tones right out of the gate.
The reverb side of this pedal is based on the Aurora Reverb platform, but with new algorithms including reverse and shimmer. Reverse reverb gives you a crazy hallucinogenic, hide-and-seek playfulness to the echoes. Shimmer reverb provides a eerie decay of high octave trails. Adjust the decay, blend, warmth, to choose between long, expansive, ambient times or to create a subtle new space around your sound.
The Sojourner also has an insert jack, allowing the insertion of additional effects in between.
Like all of Keeley Electronics’ designs, the Sojourner Fuzz Verb is hand-built in the United States using the finest components and construction techniques. It’s housed in a rugged enclosure, includes true-bypass switching, and features a two-year limited lifetime warranty with world-class Keeley customer support.
The Keeley Electronics Sojourner Fuzz Verb is available now for $299. Visit www.rkfx.com for more information about the full lineup of award-winning Keeley Electronics effects.
