Keeley Dark Side overview

  • 1Description

Inspired by David Gilmour's unmistakable and legendary guitar tones, Robert Keeley set out and created the Dark Side Pedal. This two-sided pedal combines a 1977 vintage fuzz circuit and a 24-bit digital modulation/delay effects section, each can be engaged with its own footswitch. Stomp on the Fuzz switch to bring on distorted fuzz tones, which are gritty but not overbearing, making them great for crunchy rhythm riffing or even smooth lead lines. Bring the modulation in on clean tones for atmospheric vibes. Using the mode switch and the blend control, bring in a Flange/Rotary blend, a Phase/U-Vibe blend, or a multihead Delay. If you have an expression pedal, plug it into the EXP input, and gain control of the Rate/Feedback knob for real-time effect control. This is especially cool in Delay mode where you can cause the delay circuit to self-oscillate at will. For even more controlled chaos and tonal options, push the Order switch to reverse the order of the Fuzz and Mod sections.

Fuzz Controls

Mid Switch: Lets you choose the shape of the mid-frequency curve for different fuzz tones
Filter: Acts as a tone control for the Fuzz circuit
Fuzz: Turn it up for more fuzz
Level: Controls the final output of the Fuzz circuit

Modulation Controls

Mode Select Switch: Select betwen Flange/Rotary, multihead Delay emulation, or Phase/U-Vibe effects
Blend / Tape Head: Depending on the mode selected, this knob selects the head configuration in Delay mode and controls the signal blend between Flange and Rotary or Phase and U-Vibe in those modes, respectively
Depth: Controls modulation depth, becomes a time control in Delay mode
Rate: Controls modulation speed, becomes a feedback/regen control in Delay mode (this control can be accessed through the expression pedal input for real-time control while playing)
Level: Sets the final output level of the Mod section
