Robert Keeley is one of the best Guitar pedal designers and modders in the music industry. The worlds biggest stars and producers use his pedal from Steve Vai to U2 'The Edge'.
The Red Dirt Overdrive is Roberts' classic design which has become one of the world finest classic drive sound pedals.

The Keeley Red Dirt Germanium Overdrive is a modified Red Dirt which has variable gain on different parts of the frequency response. Until now this has not been done this way in a tube screamer type of circuit. The resulting sound is exceptional as It sounds 3D and has more of everything. He also modifies the drive circuit to include a selected germanium transistor.

It in fact cleans up really nicely with the volume control even though it has plenty more gain on tap. It makes a stock screamer sound very flat and one dimensional. By allowing differing gain rates for the bass response, the bass stays tight and forceful. The mid-range and highs are soaked in sustain and saturation. The balance is quite exceptional.

Robert Keeley designed this pedal and used the great sounds found within his original Tubescreamer mods Mod Plus” and Baked” modified pedals and added refinements found exclusively in his custom pedal line.

By incorporating classic sonic signature tones and using premium components, FET input stage Robert has created a pedal that has unrivalled transparency and clarity and valve like sound which many guitarist desire in an overdrive pedal. In the dive circuit he uses a selected Germanium Transistor for every ounce of tone.

The Red Dirt Germanium Overdrive has a number of excellent features.

1-Dirt control that offers an extremely dynamic, touch-sensitive gain at both mild and heavier sustain settings.

2- Tone control that delivers an extended range of useable voicing to match the needs of virtually any guitar and amp combination.

3- Volume control that can effectively balance the signal or push an amp into further sustain and overdrive with authority.

4- Variable gain on different parts of the frequency response

5- True bypass switching for pure tone and no signal loss

6- Modified Drive Circuit with Germanium Transistor
