Imagine the ability to combine the best and defining characteristics of different overdrive & boost pedals in order to create hybrid sounds no one has ever played through before. That is exactly what we’ve engineered with the Noble Screamer.
It’s a 4-in-1 pedal that gives you two very familiar drive circuits and two brand new amp-like overdrive and distortion tones. It’s almost like pedal-modeling, except these are 100% analog circuits, and you decide which tone-control or clipping-section you want to play through.

Toggle between battle-tested, classic overdrive effects or innovate your sound using new hybrid tones, let your ears be the judge. Even with all of these features, the pedal remains a user-friendly three knob overdrive. The innovation in the Noble Screamer doesn’t end there, our new design features true-bypass or buffered, truly silent switching, on the fly. The Keeley Noble Screamer Overdrive and Boost is entirely manufactured at Keeley Electronics and is the first release in our new aluminum enclosure.
The Noble Screamer gives you two tone control circuits to choose from â a Broad Spectrum Tone Control or Narrow Focus Filter Control. When the Tone Switch is up and in the OD Position you will hear a ‘Spectrum’ type of tone control that has the ability to go from a flat EQ to an EQ that has a boost in the treble and bass response. If it is in the TS Position you have a Low Pass Filter that rolls off the high frequencies only.
Also the pedal offers both styles of diode clipping – Hard and Soft Clipping: If the Clipping Switch is in the OD Position it features Hard Diode Clipping which is an edgier, more aggressive tone. When in the TS Position that uses Soft Diode Clipping, like a tube amplifier softly overdriven.
Buffered and True Bypass
The Keeley Noble Screamer features our Vitamin K Infused Buffer for noise free switching. We have developed an amazing sounding buffer which not only makes your rig sound better, it gives you silent switching with no tone loss.
No more pops and clicks to distract from your music. If you want to turn that feature off and go back to true bypass, simply press and hold down the foot switch for two seconds and the pedal will switch to True-Bypass. This is great for players that want the effect of plugging directly into their amp when the pedal is off.
Alternatively, players that want a strong and clear signal even when the Noble Screamer is turned off, simply hold the stomp switch down for two seconds and the effect is back to Buffered Bypass. Enjoy truly silent switching and let your music be the only voice.
