Keeley DCR

The Keeley DCR is a two-channel pedal with a drive on the left side and a Chorus/Flanger or Rotary/Vibrato effect on the other. The drive has a tube-style character and offers two voicing: one is full range and highly saturated and the other one providing tube-amp Crunch or lead-channel sustain

With separate footswitches for the Drive and Modulation, the Keeley DCR is a pedal that can deliver by itself a very usable combinations of tones accessible on the fly while performing.

DCR Drive Chorus Rotary – Keeley Kustom Shop Exclusive!

The DCR — Drive and Chorus you say?  Yeah, I got it right.  Not just right, but I dare say perfect.  These two stack so well, it’s not a matter of do they work well together, it’s a matter of how awesome they sound together!  The perfectly blending of Chorus, Rotary Speaker Cabinets, or a Flanger, you decide in the space of seconds, and in one colorful and toneful small effects pedal.  ~~Like, that’s really radical sounding dude!

The KEELEY DCR is an easy drop-in for a rhythm or chord work pedal.  The DCR has a highly saturated, perfectly compressed, tube-gain tone. There are two drive profiles; one being full-range and highly saturated, the other drive mode combines a slight shelf filter and low-pass filter, perfect for warming up or thickening any guitar.  In and Out jacks double as TRS inserts and allow you to insert any effect in between the drive and chorus.

The drive section feeds into one of two types of modulation: a chorus/flanger pedal or a rotary-speaker swirl.  In a visual nod to the Ibanez Sesh-Man, the DCR combines the drive and chorus combo experience of that pedal, but with the thick modulated tone of the old TC line cord choral/flange or the unique tone-stamp of a rotary speaker!  Keeley designed rotary speaker tones are known for being lush and EQ’d in a way that captures the magic of those 3D mechanical choruses. Choose between a Vibra and Les mode to create a vintage organ tone. Choose between Chorus and Flange mode to give a thick, doubling chorus or a syrupy, slick flanger tone.
