New Pink Floyd-inspired Dark Side effects pedal from Keeley

There are four parts to the modulation effect: Flanger, Rotary Speaker Cabinet, U-Vibe, and Phaser.

Pedal features Fuzz, Delay and Modulation and as a TRS insert for adding additional effects.

Keeley Electronics has unveiled a new multi-effects guitar pedal inspired by Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour.

The individual pieces that make up the Dark Side workstation are Fuzz, Delay and Modulation.

The Fuzz side is based on a 1977 op-amp style – a more transparent Big Fuzz. It lets your guitar sing with sustain, yet retains the essence of you guitar whether single coil or humbucker based.

The next core element in the Dark Side pedal is the Delay and Modulation side.  You can select between a multi-head tape delay effect or between a combination of 4 different modulation sounds. 

The Dark Side delay has 12 different syncopated delays. They are rhythmic and have the tonal quality of the old spinning drum tape delays.  

The Dark Side has many subtle filters to get the tape delay setting to have the feel and warmth of the original machines, yet gives you range of control to have modern features like expression pedal control for the number of repeats. For example, you can use it for creating a feedback oscillation delay.

The next atom in this workstation is the modulation effect. There are four parts to this effect: Flanger, Rotary Speaker Cabinet, U-Vibe, and Phaser.  

Guitarists can blend between the “Electric Lady” Flanger and a Les-Rotary cabinet, creating new sounds.

There is a TRS Insert for adding effects in between the Fuzz and Modulation/Delay side of the pedal as well.  There is also an Expression Pedal port on the pedal.

“It is highly recommended to have an expression pedal handy,” recommends the firm. “You can make many adjustments on the fly that just increase the fun and functionality of the pedal while you’re creating music. It has to be a TRS style expression pedal.  We suggest something like the M-Audio or Moog expression pedals.”

The Dark Side pedal is available now with an RRP of $299.
