Building on an old classic, Keeley is back with a fresh take on the second version of the Caverns pedal. This is a combination of 3 modern sounding reverbs, and an analog style delay. The 2 effects can be operated independently via 2 footswitches, and the whole pedal comes in a nice small footprint. It’s 9-Volt DC, 3.7×4.7 inches, and true bypass. I had the pleasure of taking an early demo model for a spin. Let’s check it out!

Great choice as your first pedal. Great choice as your next pedal. The Keeley Caverns is a huge bang for the buck. It’s 3 reverbs, analog delay, and even hints of polyphonic bliss all in one pedal. This is great for any solo musician wanting to add a little space and sparkle to their restaurant or church gigs, or any guitar player looking to take their tone to another level. This pedal would fit right at home on anyone’s pedalboard or in any recording setup. All in all, it’s just a great piece of gear to add to your collection.
