Keeley Synth-1 Effects Pedal

Fuzzy Vintage Synth Sound From Your Guitar

Written by

Cian Hodge

Have you ever wanted your guitar fuzz to sound like a synth? If not, why not? The Keeley Synth-1 pedal turns your plain, old guitar signal into a keyboard synth, cutting through with lightsaber-like whizz.

Keeley are well known for making unique pedals to spice up your standard guitar tone. The Synth-1 is yet another creative stompbox added to the line-up to do just that.

Can you make your guitar sound like a synth? And will one of them go on The Captains board?


It acts as a wave generator, creating a beam of fuzz closely resembling a vintage analogue synth. It sounds great even if you’re just playing single-notes thanks to its lively character and depth. 

Choose between three types of sound waves, varying from smooth drifts of fuzz, through aggressive square waves or abrupt attack. And you can change these on the fly with your foot using the three-way switch. 


The Blend control mixes wet and dry signals, so you can use the Synth-1 subtly, or flood the natural tone with fuzzy goodness. The Filter dial alters tone depth even further. Attack changes the lead-in time – whether the effect enters as soon as note is played or if there's a level of latency. Create slow reverse swells with this turned up high.

Its Chaos switch does exactly what it’s meant to do – wreak synthetic havoc. It adds random octaves, dimensional triggering and all sorts of artefacts to make the Synth-1 as unpredictable as possible. 

Pedalboard Friendly

The Synth-1 is expression pedal compatible for similar use to a wah effect. Completed with true bypass and top-mounted jacks, making the Synth-1 an integral tool on your pedalboard for live use.
