Keeley's Red Dirt is a Swiss Army Knife of distortion and overdrive tones. It packs all its punch into a single compact pedal with just three knobs and one toggle switch.
The Red Dirt produces everything from a clean boost (Dirt down, Level up) through to a crunchy shimmering overdrive. From there, you can just keep adding more and more filth until the tone is as saturated as you like!
One of the best thing about the Red Dirt is that all the way through the wide scope of overdrive sounds, there's still something magically and characteristically 'Keeley' about it: just that extra bit of definition that marks all Keeley pedals as a cut above the rest.
Here's what Keeley say about the Red Dirt Pedal:
Well we have been taken over by the spirit of development! We are happy to announce our first new product roll out since our Luna Overdrive arrived on the scene a couple of years ago. The “Red Dirt” overdrive, named for our home state of Oklahoma’s most noticeable geographic feature, as well as its iconic local brew of country music, is a classic tube style overdrive pedal with a sound that is as “Keeley” as it gets.
We’ve taken all of the clarity, warmth and tonality of our famous “Mod Plus” modded pedals and, with the addition of a 2 position toggle, the option to have the full unbridled viciousness and high gain of our “Baked” variation. The resulting pedal is an overdrive that can fill nearly any need. From sweet, subtle blues tones to screaming, high gain crunch it’s all there (even pulling a double duty as a near clean boost).
