Keeley El Rey Dorado

(1/1)

Strangeman86:
Pros:
- At the right settings it does certainly evoke shades of the plexi variety.
- Large range of gain from mild grit to some legit distortion.
- If you look closely you can see the LED's light up through the power toggle's hole while playing.

Cons:
- It has a quality similar to some tube-screamer styled circuits where it sounds like there's some clean signal blended into the drive.  I imagine most of that would go away with a slightly more driven amp, but I like my cleans clean.
- To my ears it lacks some of the singing quality that other Keeley circuits possess. 

Overall, not a bad drive.  It just isn't my thing and will soon be sold.
