Robert Keeley's mods to TS overdrive pedals were wildly popular and enjoyed by some of the greatest guitarists in the world. Keeley's mods allowed the TS to have higher gain, be cleaner when turned down, have greater bass response and greater tone control. Keeley took these mods and put them into a standalone pedal, the Red Dirt, and now the Red Dirt Mini!
The Red Dirt Overdrive became an instant success with its ability to be used as a standalone drive or as a boost to suit your setup how you like. This mini pedal model is now even easier to fit into your already existing rig. It retains the same low gain settings from the original but at a much lower price.
The Red Dirt Mini has the same gain, level and tone controls that are on its big brother the regular Red Dirt. The only thing missing is the Lo/Hi switch which most people kept in the Lo position anyway thanks to its beautiful midrange boosting ability. This makes the pedal a great small form booster for when you really need to be heard on stage.
The Red Dirt Mini features two internal dip switches allowing you to switch between four different modes, each giving you a different dynamics and levels of drive. The four modes are: Distortion, Overdrive, Crunch, and Amp. Distortion is the highest gain setting, far exceeding normal TS-levels and then you get clearer, more open sounds as you progress through Overdrive, Crunch, and Amp modes.
