Keeley Electronics announced it is building the KO-ALS distortion effect pedal to raise donations for ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease). The pedal will be limited to 100 units. The 100 percent hand-built effect pedal is based on the Keeley Stahlhammer and proceeds from the sale go to Project ALS. Project A.L.S. was founded in 1998, as a non-profit 501(c)3.
With controls for DISTORTION, LEVEL, BASS, MIDS, and TREBLE the KO-ALS makes it easy for players to dial in incredible amounts of heavy distortion. Modifications to the circuit allow for dual EQ system. A side mounted switch will allow users to change the EQ contour between and Fender and Marshall type of sound. .
Like all of Keeley Electronics’ designs, the KO-ALS is hand-built in the USA using the finest components and construction techniques. It is housed in a beautifully powder-coated and rugged enclosure, includes true bypass switching, and features a 2-year limited lifetime warranty with world-class Keeley customer support.
The Keeley Electronics KO-ALS is a joint collaboration between Robert Keeley and Peter Gusmano and goes on sale Wednesday August 27, 2014 at noon Central Time for $179. A donation of $30 will be made from each pedal purchase. Last time, Keeley Electronics, Drive For A Cure, and www.guitarforacure.com raised $1500 for www.ProjectALS.org.
