    Has anyone spent time with the new Keeley limiting amplifier? Any thoughts?

    I'm currently running a Cali76, but I wouldn't mind the extra space on my rig.

    Just bought one a week or two ago, very impressed by this pedal. Over the years I've owned an Analogman mini bi-comp, Analogman comprossor, Mad Professor forest green (pcb version), Greer fish press, Empress comp, and a few others. Prior to purchasing the Keeley, the Empress was at the top of my list for "best overall compressor", the Greer for "best squeezer comp" and the Analogman for "best Ross-style comp". Even though it's been less than two weeks, there's no doubt that the Keeley is a keeper.

    It's dead quiet and the ability to set the threshold and ratio puts it on par, as far as versatility, with the Empress. The Keeley can go from not noticeable compression to more compression than anybody would ever need. Small footprint, too. On a youtube demo, Pete Thorn mentions that it makes the guitar easier to play, and he's absolutely correct.

    Any more info on this pedal? Anyone know why it's noticeably cheaper the the 4 knob comp?

    Not in Australia. About a $50 AUD difference.
