Excellent and compact tone machine

Jimifeed, 08.08.2017
The Keeley Tone Workstation is an excellent solution to have 3-4 pedals in a compact and reasonably priced (for a boutique pedal) solution.
The best is the middle part of the pedal: the Katana boost is highly effective and sounds very well. The 1962 overdrive is exceptional, the best overdrive I ever had. Depending on the output of your pick-up can go to moderate to quite strong British/Marshallesque sound, perfect for everything from blues to hard rock.
Compressor is also excellent, with the extra flexibility of the treble switch (guess you won't use it on a Tele...) and the blend. Sustain is infinite with distorted sound, but you pay it with a frankly unacceptable background noise.
The Red Dirt is also excellent: the sound has its distinctive character, which is great but not very versatile. I also did not find a great difference between the baked and mod+ modalities. The sustain, on the contrary, is legendary (if coupled with the compressor), wherever in the neck you pick a note it will last forever and feedback super easily, Santana-style!
The price for the unit being compact is that it's very small (it is difficult to press the right switch if you have big feet or if you're drunk on stage!), and you cannot choose the order of the effects. Overall, an excellent pedal, especially rock (but not at all metal) oriented, really worth the cost. Only big downside is the noise with the distortion and compression on.

Unfortunately a waterfall

StefanL, 26.02.2017
The features are good and also the sound samples on the homepage were great. Unfortunately, the device rushes and hisses with half-twisted drive in both distortion channels, that even with moderate volume is no joy. I have several other distortors (Behringer, OKKO, blues driver) which only have extreme noises in extreme settings. Since it is not evenly rushing, but also hiss and bruzzelt it is perhaps a manufacturing defect. Only the Clean Boost Katana is ok and the Compressor part of course synonymous.
Overall a shame since the 1962 Grundound is very appealing and the concept with 2 stages plus compressor is good. The foot switches are a bit close together but it fits well on the board.
