Keeley Limited Release Black Glass British Fuzz

PRESSS RELEASE: Keeley Electronics today announced it is building the Black Glass British Fuzz effect pedal. The pedal will be limited to 150 units. The 100% hand-built Black Glass is a modern compact circuit of the classic OC81 based design and was created for the most demanding fuzz effects lovers. The Black Glass offers a wealth of tone bending vintage musical MkIII sounds with reduced noise and treble response and a modern power supply. With controls for FUZZ, TONE, and LEVEL the Black Glass makes it easy for players to dial in very wild amounts of fuzz. Modifications to the circuit allow for an increased high frequency not heard of before as well as ultra-low noise. Furthermore, design modifications have solved temperature problems that can affect vintage fuzz units. Players have the needed power supply inversion so that they can use a regular 9 Volt power supply.
