    Just taken delivery of a Keeley Dark Side pedal, only had a little play but I'm impressed so far. Loads of different tonal options, obviously inspired by Gilmour's sound, but a lot more too. If...

    I've got the same unit and use it with headphones too. You'll probably find most of the presets are pretty meh (depending on taste etc) and the OD's are a bit synthetic sounding. However I love...
