This limited run was inspired by the modified Red Dirt Overdrive Keeley Electronics made for John Petrucci. He took a pair of the originals on tour and now Keeley Electronics has decided to let you in on the secret mod. The Red Dirt Professional Overdrive is upgraded with a very low noise op amp for much lower background noise levels and a special mixture of clipping LEDs. Like the original Red Dirt Overdrive, only fatter, bigger, and more tube-like.
Only 30 of these Red Dirt Mini Overdrives were made, and each one will have a perfect reproduction of the original hand signature Robert wrote on John Petruccis original unit.
The Red Dirt overdrive began from a quest to find the perfect classic drive sound while also offering new levels of sonic versatility to satisfy a wider range of musical styles. Founder and head engineer Robert Keeley took this idea and combined the great sounds found within his original "Mod Plus" and "Baked" modified pedals and added refinements found exclusively in his custom pedal line. A Keeley designed FET input stage makes this overdrive breakup in a whole new, genuinely "tube like" style that will have your leads singing and your rhythm playing sounding more dynamic and expressive than ever. It all culminates in an overdrive that is superbly dynamic, with crispness and clarity that let players cut through a dense mix, while retaining the plump midrange. By incorporating these tones along with the Keeley standard of U.S.A. hand-built quality using premium components, the Red Dirt overdrive aims to become an indispensable part of any pedal chain.
