Okay, cool. The Keeley may be just what I'm looking for then.

Two quick questions and I'm done, promise. Haha.

First, did you order direct from Keeley or from a third party? If you ordered from Keeley, how long did it take to ship?

Second, what do you use cable-wise? Some people swear by expensive George L's and Lavas, but I can't see how they'd make a difference.

GG, great demo and the Plimsoul sounds great.

I can't help myself.....but.... for future reference, you only have two pickups on that guitar (@ 3:30)
(its the OCD in me I guess :cool:)

Thanks very much!

And yeah, I meant to say both pickups. :D

I bought the limited edition hand signed by Robert Keeley exclusive for Prymaxe Vintage, which is where I bought it from. It is also in Black finish which is rare because most of all Keeley's are silver which I think are ugly. :laugh2: I'm shallow about the way my pedals look. :D I want them to be eye candy too! http://www.prymaxevintage.com/keeley-electronics-compressor-4-knob-prymaxe-black/

I use Monster Cable. A controversial brand but I'll just say I am a cable breaker and broke TON of cables and tried everything and am lucky if a guitar cable last 3 months. Monsters have lasted me for 3 years and have not lost tone one bit and hold up. As far as pedal patch cables, I use the ones that came with my LYT pedalboard when I bought it. I need to invest in some better ones! :laugh2:

Here is the Keeley 4-knob compressor.

A couple things I want to touch on is the fact I am not feeling too well this evening (mild headache all day with neck pain - going to chiropractor tomorrow) so my playing might not be as good as yesterday's and also maybe my compressor is not functioning right. It seems to have a noisy "sustain" (compression amount) pot that crackles when you raise the compression (noisy potentiometer). I also haven't figured out my settings yet. I will email Keeley to check on it. This is just a "rough cut" video.

I was going to shoot a part of the video with the PRS but I had some camera trouble so I had to clip that part out.
