The 1962x is a limited version of Keeley’s 1962 pedal, with an additional “KT88” high headroom mode utilizing MOSFET clipping. In the “KT66” mode you will get the same performance and gain range you get in the standard 1962, from mild light breakup all the way to full saturation. In the “KT88” mode, a MOSFET transistor is inserted in the clipping stage to produce a higher output, and a more forceful, focused and meatier sound. The KT88 Mode definitely steps the presence up a notch and acts terrifically to light up the front end of a classic tube amp (reminiscent of a Marshall Bluesbreaker). Take all of this and place it in a brand new graphic design featuring many classic Bluesbreaker design elements and a special printed “open back” back plate, and you end up with a terrific sounding pedal that is really great to look at too!
This unit is crafted from precision components and workmanship. Even the surface mount JFET transistors are placed and soldered by hand. A very low noise op-amp was selected for this tone-tool. This pedal sparkles with life and energy, but doesn’t have the noise that takes away from that clarity. The 1962X pairs up nicely with tube screamer-type pedals, as well as their Red Dirt overdrive. Keeley engineered effects are tools that you can depend on and make music with.
