Product Description

The Red Dirt Overdrive began from a quest to find the perfect classic drive sound while also offering new levels of sonic versatility in order 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 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 lets players cut through a dense mix, while retaining 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.

Guitar TAB of the Red Dirt clip by Mike Herman (Prymaxe)

“Hey Robert,

I’ve bought close to a dozen Keeley pedals/mods from you. I just received my first Red Dirt. I must have played through hundreds of distortion pedals over 40 years of playing including the first ones to become popular in the sixties. I’ve enjoyed your units especially the Compressor. This Red Dirt is on par with the Compressor and a perfect balance of tone, sag and distortion. The range of distortion seems to be missing from every other distortion unit I’ve tried. This is a superlative and unique addition to your line-up. I just love the sound. Thanks for your dedication to the perfect dirt.”
