Jimi’s Favorite Sounds in One Box
Keeley engineered the Monterey multi-effects pedal to give you the essential tools needed to achieve the legendary tones of Jimi Hendrix. The modulation section of the pedal contains a rotary speaker sound, a vibe, and an autowah. And the fuzz circuit is appropriately warm and full sounding, while being very touch sensitive. In the Monterey, you’ll also find a variable octave up and down that you can run in conjunction with any of the pedal’s tones. The Monterey multi-effects revives one of the most important and influential moments in electric guitar.
Keeley Monterey Rotary Fuzz Vibe Multi-effects Pedal at a Glance:
Multiple modulation effects
- Multiple modulation effects
- Vintage-sounding fuzz
- And so much more
From Jimi’s use of a vibe on “Machine Gun” to the tone-defining wah work on “Voodoo Child,” modulation was always a big part of his tonal palette. The Monterey packs all of those sounds into this one pedal, and it does so with quality and detail in mind. The rotary speaker sound uses cabinet simulation for a life-like feel, and the vibe effect is as deep and lush as you could ever want. Or utilize the Monterey’s autowah tones for an open and detailed filter that takes you back to the electric guitar’s golden years.
The fuzz circuit onboard the Monterey Rotary Fuzz Vibe multi-effects pedal is based on the two-transistor fuzz sound that Jimi used to great effect on songs like “Foxey Lady” and “Star Spangled Banner.” The fuzz’s tone is warm and round but with enough top end to stay clear and punchy in a mix. Sweetwater players enjoy this kind of fuzz for how well it cleans up when you play lighter or roll the volume knob back on your guitar. This circuit nails that feature giving you any shade of gain you desire whether using single-coils or humbuckers.
And so much more
Keeley crammed even more features into the Monterey in addition to all of the gain and modulation options it already has. A variable octave knob blends in either an octave up or an octave down as you turn the control. This is wonderful for paring with the fuzz for an octavia-type of tone. The Monterey also works well as a speaker cabinet simulator if you turn on the rotary effect but stop the rate of rotation. And as if that weren’t enough, an Expression pedal input offers you real-time control over modulation rate and the wah tones.
