Get ready for a new take on a classic pedal from Keeley Electronics – it’s the MINI KATANA CLEAN BOOST!
Keeley’s oldest design has been made smaller and with an additional feature. The Katana started back in 2002 within the Time Machine Boost. It was a dual class A JFET design that gave players an incredible boost and sounded so good they were never turned off. In fact, players like John Mayer often ran two or three on stage and that ended up becoming a common practice for many! The Mini Katana boost provides over 35dB of boost, enough for the most demanding players and sound reinforcement.
So, what’s new with the Keeley Electronics Mini Katana? Get ready for this….
The new Mini Katana is now a 4 Mode Booster! With the dual micro switches, you have a total of four possible sounds. Need drive? Just flip the micro Hi-Gain Switch inside and you’ve got overdriven tone! Flip the Hi-Cut Switch (NEW for the Katana Mini) on the inside and you have a warmer tone to soften any Strat or Tele. Flip both switches and you have the ultimate sounding boost, thick, creamy, tube-amp sounding, with plenty of volume on tap.
Obsessed with cleanest, most enjoyable tone boosts? Well…before other people started using Blue LED’s and non-diode clipping stages, there was the Time Machine Boost and Katana…. Cascading FET stages do the tube-amp thing like nobody else.
Now made smaller, the Keeley Mini Katana will fit any board and any budget. Enjoy the pedal that redefined clean boost in the boutique era!
