Retro graphics, big, juicy retro sound
Oklahoma-based Keeley Electronics wants you to get over-the-top overdrive from its new Retro Super germanium amplifier design. The Keeley Retro Super Germanium Phat Mod reads your fingers and mind to give you supernatural quantities of gain. It’s a fuzz, it’s a drive, and it’s a cranked amp all in one! The Retro Super is ultra responsive and has maximum dynamic gain.
At the heart of the Keeley Retro Super Germanium Phat Mod is the company’s germanium amplifier stage. Designing this additional gain stage into the front of the “amp tone-stack” did wonders; it amazingly simulated a retro-fuzz pedal connected to a cranked amp.
But Keeley didn’t want to let it idle there, so they completely opened up the secondary gain stage so that the dynamics would jump out of your speakers. The Retro Super is perfect for thick and thoaty gain tones that are dynamic and add loads of sustain.
Any Phan of the Phat Mod knows that it performs perfectly in low- AND high-gain applications. Emphasis on the AND. So why not have two?! Problem solved: the Retro Super teams up with anything. The Super Retro goes on sale later today for $179 right here. Check out the demo video below!
