The Dark Side Fuzz Multi Effects Pedal from Keeley Engineering is a revolutionary multi-effects unit that combines analog fuzz, delay and modulation in one innovative stompbox. This hand-built pedal that lets players explore a galaxy of tones. The Dark Side's analog fuzz circuit delivers transparent distortion inspired by 1970s op-amp fuzzes, while its digital side features 12 tape delay variations and four modulation effects: flanger, rotary speaker, univibe and phaser. An expression pedal (not included) unlocks even more tonal possibilities on the fly.

Analog Meets Digital for Endless Soundscapes

At the heart of the Dark Side are analog fuzz and a high-end 24-bit DSP engine. Keeley studied decades of gear to craft sounds that capture the essence of the originals while providing a range of new tones. The rotary effect is more chorused than Keeley's Monterey pedal and the univibe throbs with greater intensity. The four-stage phaser emulates Keeley's Jimi Hazel Phase Delay. Like the Monterey, the Dark Side is completely hand built in the U.S.A. with premium components for unparalleled tone.

Delay and Modulation Galore

The Dark Side's delay offers 12 different syncopated rhythms with the warmth of vintage tape delays. Subtle modulations make the repeats musical and an expression pedal controls the number of repeats for oscillating feedback effects. The modulation side provides flanger, rotary speaker cabinet, univibe and phaser effects. Blend the "Electric Lady" flanger with the Les-Rotary cabinet for new sounds or find the perfect blend of univibe and phaser.

Connect Your Way

A TRS insert lets you add other effects between the fuzz and delay/modulation sections. Connect an expression pedal to control many parameters in real time for more fun and functionality. The expression pedal must use a TRS connection.

Road-Ready and Built to Last

The Dark Side's rugged enclosure is ready to handle life on the road. Premium components and hand-built construction in the USA ensure years of inspiring tone. When you're ready to explore new frontiers of sound, plug into the Dark Side Fuzz Multi Effects Pedal.
