Ein Super Box!!!

28.10.2016
David Gilmour's basic effects setup is well over ¤15000. Unachievable for most of us, but with the Keeley Dark Side I'd say its pretty close! It's got just about everything you would require in one box. The box itself is very well hand crafted and amazingly accurate.
Just one negative point though: during a gig it's fairly impossible to change the fine settings for example the blend and rate since they are dials. In this case you might want to have two boxes running separate for different effects.
Other than that, its a 5 star item.

SUPER SOUND - BAD OPERATION

phmllr, 09.06.2018
All effects of the Keeley Dark Side are of high tonal quality. The workmanship is very neat. Unfortunately, I had to return it anyway, because it did not sound like my ideas and the condition is not practicable.

The Fuzz section sounds very much like MetalMuff to me. The MetalMuff is my favorite metal pedal, but I'm not the Metalhead, rather belong to the blues faction and expected less from a Gilmour Tribute Pedal. Over 10 o'clock it is too much gain for my taste. Just like the Volume Poti - the only pedal in front of the amp, the fuzz over 10 o'clock volume is too loud.
I tested it on a 15 Watt tube amp (BluesJr) with little headroom - with a 100W head I can well imagine that the fuzz has less distortion.
Yes, I know, a muff is something to combine with a Marshall / Hiwatt. However, I thought that the switch on Full or Flat, the Fender center hole compensates. At the increased Zerrgrad with little headroom I did not think in advance.

The mod section is sonically on a very high level. In particular, the Univibe is very organic and usable. The delay is really fun. Unfortunately, the delay time is relatively short (I can not say exactly how many milliseconds, but definitely much shorter than my previous delay with 600ms). The biggest problem is that you can not just switch from Univibe to Delay, because you have to change all the pots of the mod section. Useless for live applications, unless you want to re-adjust the pedal after each song. Additional internal trimpotis would be appropriate.

The workmanship is impeccable. You also do not have to worry about stepping on the small toggle switches because they are lower than the footswitches in a compressed state. The pedal looks great. The LEDs are not too bright and not too dark. The size of the pedal is pedalboard friendly and should be a bit bigger, to my taste, as long as you want to use it as a stand-alone device in front of the amp without a pedalboard.

CONCLUSION: SUPER SOUND - BAD OPERATION - MUCH GAIN - LESS DELAY TIME
