The Keeley Mini Katana is a clean boost pedal that offers a compact and updated version of Keeley's classic Katana design. Known for its exceptional clarity and powerful boost capabilities, the Mini Katana builds upon the legacy of its predecessor. Originally introduced in 2002 within the Time Machine Boost, the Katana quickly became a favorite among guitarists for its dual class A JFET design, delivering an incredible boost that players rarely turned off. Some artists, like John Mayer, even used two or three Katanas on their stages. The Mini Katana now offers more than 35dB of boost, making it suitable for even the most demanding players and sound reinforcement needs.
What sets the Mini Katana apart from its predecessor is its four-mode booster functionality. Thanks to dual micro switches, you can now access four distinct sounds with ease. If you need drive, simply engage the micro Hi-Gain Switch, providing you with overdriven tones. Additionally, the Hi-Cut Switch, a new feature for the Katana Mini, allows you to create warmer tones that soften the sound of single-coil pickups from Strat or Tele-style guitars. For the ultimate boost experience, engage both switches to achieve a thick, creamy, tube-amp-like sound with plenty of volume on tap. Whether you're after clean tones or want to add some grit to your sound, the Mini Katana has you covered.
The Keeley Mini Katana maintains its commitment to delivering the cleanest and most enjoyable tone possible. Unlike other boost pedals that rely on blue LEDs and non-diode clipping stages, the Mini Katana retains the essence of the original TMB and Katana designs. It features cascading FET stages that authentically emulate the warm and dynamic qualities of tube amplifiers. This pedal's compact size ensures it can fit on any pedalboard without breaking the bank, making it an excellent choice for players seeking a tasteful update to the pedal that redefined clean boost during the boutique era.
This pedal works nicely as intended and is in very good condition, exhibiting only gentle external wear and has had velcro applied to the bottom as can be seen in photos. Box is included.
