Top Fuzz!
T.J., 14.02.2021
I have been looking for a fuzz pedal for a while now, have been looking lots of youtube videos, browsing the Thomann site and tried some new unknown fuzzes as wel as classics.
For me it came down in the end between 3 fuzzes, The SolidGold Communication Breakdown, a very vesratile, but less outspoken one; the Danelectro 3699, a really nice sounding, especially with the mid boost activated and the winner of them all the Keeley Fuzz Bender.
Really love this fuzz! Easy to handle, because of the big knobs, you can get a whole spectrum of different types of sound out of it, by rotating the Bias knob and you can adjust that sound by the great active Bass and Treble knobs.
This pedal gives so many really nice sounds, that it even crossed my mind buying a second one of it in time, so that I don't constantly have to change settings all over the spectrum!

Soooo Versatile
_i_m_zo, 18.04.2020
This is a cool fuzz as you got so many sounds in one box. The knobs are very sensitive and even a small turn makes a lot of difference. The eq section is phenomenal and with this you really add bass or treble... We all know what the Level and Fuzz knobs are for.....and then the Bias that's where the great things happen, you can starve or feed the caps and the results are quite stunning, from quite buzzy to full blown. Mr. Keeley knows a thing or 2 about making pedals. The overall construction is good as you would expect from a pedal like this. Inside everything is done properly and professionally. If i really have to find something about this pedal that i don't like, but i haven't had it for long, is it seems to lack a bit of character, there's a lot of sounds but maybe they're all a bit flat, none really stands out, like you wanna set it there and leave it alone. But maybe i just haven't found it yet. All things considered for the money there aren't many other options out there with the same features...

The Swiss Army knife of fuzz pedals
BasGef, 26.06.2020
A very versatile fuzz that sounds good. But if you are looking for a very particular type of fuzz, a dedicated pedal probably sounds better.

The ‘bias’ knob switches the fuzz’s from germanium to silicon-like sounds. This works well and really changes the characteristics of the fuzz from subtle to "too crazy for my liking". And unlike some other pedals with a toggle switch, this bias dial allows you to blend to taste. The EQ further help shape the tone. Since I hadn’t used fuzz that much previously, I found this to be a great way to experiment with different sounds with just one pedal.

The sound quality is good, at least to my ears. However, if you are looking for a very specific type of fuzz, there are dedicated pedals that have a bit more 'oomph' to their tones than this Swiss Army fuzz.

Build quality is pretty solid, but, the fuzz dial does seem to have a bit of a “dead” spot between about 7 and 8 o'clock (lowest) where it gets really glitchy: the sound randomly dies as if there is a lack of input signal.

Not my cup of tea!
Alejandro76, 15.04.2020
Actuallly a great fuzz but not in combination with my overdrive /distortions pedals (JHS Angrie Charlie). I always use fuzz pedals in an amp that is already overdriven or in combination with other drive pedals. The Keely fuzz doesn't sound nice in a clean amp, just as I expected, thin and shrill. But that's normal with any fuzz. In combination with drive pedals it sounds fat. Too fat to my taste. Put a wah in front of it and it sounds harsh, ice picky. In combination with my Pickle Vibe (vibe) there is an anoying treble occurring. My old and trusty handbuild fuzz doesnt't have this problems at all, therefore that one is going back on my board.
