Well, it’s time to add a new member to our family here at Keeley. The Red Dirt overdrive is a Keeley take on a classic tone. It’s the result of over 10 years of Robert’s fine tuning. All of the work that has gone in to our already wildly popular Mod Plus and Baked mods is here as well as a FET input stage that 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. These things combined with true bypass switching, trademark Keeley blue LED, 100% hand made in the USA quality, and one of the best warranties currently available make for a great value at a price of only $199.
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. 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 indispensible part of any pedal chain.

This is one of the best TS pedals Ive played. It has an incredible gain range with an much increased amount of gain and headroom over a standard TS. The midrange has been sweetened up. Great pedal!

This Tube Screamer derivative is very very Hi-Fi. The major difference between this TS and all my others(I have about 7 TS style pedals) is that is can get very crisp as if there is a built-in compressor. The note definition is great. You can still get the smooth smokey mid-hump of a normal TS. While this doesn't replace my normal TS it's a great addition.
The reason I give it 4 stars is that I'm always looking for another better TS style pedal (this might be it but time will tell).
