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.
The Red Dirt Overdrive is why people have been screaming, “Robert
Keeley, the mod god! and John Petrucci needing two for his touring rig!
