Maybe they modded their electrical junction box for better tone?

Seriously, good to hear no one was injured.

Rock on!

At least no one was hurt. I was planning on ordering a few more pedals off them next month though.

I heard they'll be up and running again in about 8 weeks time, so no worries!

Re: Keeley Effects building burns down...

Now all the tone snobs will be able to argue pointlessly about whether the pre factory fire stuff is better than the post fire stuff.

I can see it now, Eric Johnson wannabes saying things like "no way, the post fire stuff is better 'cause the components have already been heat tested...."

Rock on!
