There’s plenty of modulation effects on offer, with three phasing stages to experiment with. This little green box looks ace!
Keeley Artist Series Daniel Donato Cosmic Country Phaser
The Daniel Donato Cosmic Country Phaser comes in a neat and tidy format, with a fantastic paint job and an easy to use four-knob layout consisting of Depth, Rate, Feedback and Level. This phaser has three operating modes and can get you some pretty sweet sounding phase tones that should lend themselves to all styles of music, not just country.
Daniel Donato needed something to complement his unique playing style and Robert Keeley has certainly delivered thee goods. Here’s what Daniel had to say:
“Dependability, flexibility, and durability make a great guitar. What makes an amazing pedal? That special sauce that Keeley puts into each of their circuits. The Cosmic Country phaser takes the sound I hear in my mind, and blows it through each speaker it comes in contact with.”
You can choose how many phaser stages – 2, 4 or 6 – are active by adjusting the mini toggle switch in the centre of there pedal. Then you adjust the Depth to make the peaks and troughs more or less pronounced. The Rate knob controls how fast the low-frequency oscillation sweeps through the phase. The Feedback adds output from the later stage of phasing into the earlier one, so you get a nice resonant, vocal quality to the modulation.
With only the demos to go on, it looks to be a nice sounding effect. Having three different phaser stages available is a plus, as they all have their own quality you can play around with to get some interesting tones. You can hear the pedal in action in the demo video below.
The Daniel Donato Cosmic Country Phaser should be available to order from 22 December. The price is also pretty decent for such a flexible phaser pedal. This could be a nice deal if you’re looking for a good all rounder for your rig.
A portion of the sales of the Artist Series pedals will go towards helping artists affected by the pandemic, so you’re also helping out fellow musicians with this one, which is a nice touch.
