These are very similar styles of distortions. The Orange pedal had more gain because it has the added transistor gain stage. The Sick Green pedal had a higher bass output that made tons of famous players happy because there was no low-end cut off.

Two Legendary Distortions In One Box! - The Green And The Orange

The Orange pedal had more gain because it has the added transistor gain stage. The Sick Green pedal had a higher bass output that made tons of famous players happy because there was no low-end cut off.

The Sound of Light Emitting Diodes, Wire and Wood.

Robert Keeley got to play his first SD-9 and DS-1 while living in Germany in the mid-80s. He played them at the Music Klemer and Musik Schaller in Kaiserslautern. (The same music store he swore off compressors for over a decade after hearing the Ibanez CP-9 for the first time.) Do you remember hearing things like the Steve Vai, or Joe Satriani for the first time? They influenced Keeley greatly. He even got to modify their pedals. What a rush.

He hadn’t seen people using LED’s for distortion much yet, and surely not on a switch that the user could control, and most certainly not one that was visible for the player to actually SEE the distortion it was creating. Fun Times!


Plug In, Tune Up, and Cutoff!

Okay here’s the unique element to this Keeley DS-9 Distortion. Craighton and Keeley came up with a Cutoff control to allow players to blend between the low end gain response of the two pedals. The bass cutoff region is now something you can experiment with. You can dial in some super low bass and gain like the SD or or turn it up to cut bass deep like the DS (that keeps it tight and punchy). Turn the Cutoff Control all the way up for an accurate bass response like the DS. Now you can fine tune your very low end gain and response.
