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.
The Limited Run KE-808 is a blend between the super hot sounds of the Red Dirt Germanium and the Red Dirt Professional Limited Edition, which was very full and bold sounding. Very Nice!
The new Limited KE-808 has parallel branches of gain like the Red Dirt Germanium which creates huge gain response and the fullest sounding tube screamer like pedal we’ve ever made.
The new KE-808 also combines the fat, tube tone of the Red Dirt Pro models by using LEDs for clipping.
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.
