Well as luck would have I got to swing by Keeley's yesterday and catch the boy's working on all kinds of stuff. The Keeley Tone Workstation proto was up and running so a little test drive was given! The first thing I noticed was the effect order and I quickly found out you can switch the order to your preference very easy, just move a cable. It runs off one 9 volt battery or one 9 volt boss type plug. I will tell you that it is a wonderful sounding box. The Rhythm effect is in the ball park of a Boss BD-2 Sound but not the same Controls are (Gain, Volume, Tone and a switch that acts like the phat boost). It is very open and clear and can be dialed in for a mean low growl. The center effect is the Keeley Compressor with the new Attack external control. The Lead side effect has Gain, Drive, Tone and Volume controls along with a 3 way switch for some more Eq options this side sounds more in the Tube Screamer ball park..but again not a TS-9...I was amazed at how the effects interact to each other and it is a handy thing to be able to switch the batting order of effects . It will be a gigging guitarist dream come true. Great basic tone be it clean, mean or downright dirty and then you can add any type of lead over it...Clean or dirty..eq'd with plenty of gain to step out of the mix. I will be looking forward to it's release..the other pics are the new boxes for it and RK getting down on a 72 Fender Jazz Bass....and I had to buy myself a little something to tide me over until the Tone Workstation is released!! Wait till I put the TR-2 in the DD-3 loop with some fuzz!
