Keeley Electronics had a great reputation among guitarists, so I was interested to receive a press release detailing a new chorus pedal that they’re releasing. I don’t use much chorus myself, but it’s something that I think really adds a nice effect when used tastefully. I’ll definitely be interested in hearing how this one sounds. Plus, the seafoam green color looks great!
Keeley Electronics today announced it is now shipping its Seafoam Chorus effect pedal. The 100% hand-built Seafoam chorus is a new design built from the ground up that was created for the most demanding modulation effects connoisseurs. The Seafoam chorus offers a wealth of studio-quality musical tones, from pulsating vibrato pitch bending to shimmering chorus doubling effects, all in a compact pedal design.
With controls for modulation Rate, Depth, and Tone, the Seafoam Chorus makes it easy for players to dial in a wide palette of sounds. A unique Blend control was also added to enable players to toe the line between pure vibrato or chorus sounds – and explore countless variations at settings in between.
“Our design team focused on solving the challenges and shortcomings of other modulation effects and so the goal of the Seafoam Chorus was clear: create a best-in-class product that balances versatility, musical tone, and low noise in a compact effect,” said Robert Keeley, founder and chief engineer, Keeley Electronics. “To achieve this, we deployed several industry-first technical innovations to the design including using an opto-coupler enhanced LFO that contributes to the Seafoam’s low noise and smooth, natural chorusing. The end result is the Seafoam Chorus is a studio-quality effect we are extremely proud of and excited to offer to our customers.”
Like all of Keeley Electronic designs, the Seafoam Chorus is hand-built in the USA using the finest components and construction techniques. It is housed in a beautifully power-coated and rugged enclosure, includes true bypass switching, and features a 2-year limited warranty with world-class Keeley customer support.
The Keeley Electronics Seafoam Chorus is now shipping to dealers worldwide at a street price of $229. Visit www.rkfx.com for more information about the full lineup of award-winning Keeley Electronics effects.
