Constructed with a super compact all-metal chassis for durability and maximum pedalboard space, a reduced-size three-knob layout of the same tone, level, and drive controls, and a four-way internal dip switch mode selector for altering the clipping configuration, the Keeley Red Dirt Mini Overdrive takes expansive boutique-quality features and compounds them into the tiniest of packages. Originally conceived when working in tandem with John Petrucci, the Red Dirt serves up the same type of mid-gain roar as a certain green monster with a customizable edge all its own thanks to the array of built-in features. This pedal is a great candidate for those interested in adding more muscle and character to their overdrive section without overcrowding the board or as a primary overdrive on smaller effect sections.

    Great tones. LOTS of different tones but a little fussy to access adjusting the tones

    Great tone, I use it for crunch. M y amps cover the high gain tones.

  • The Quintessential Keeley Overdrive/Distortion Pedal

    4 Separate Modes activated by the Dip Switches under the back panel. Distortion, Overdrive, Crunch, and Amp modes. Distortion is the most clipped and squeezed sounding, where Amp mode is the least clipped and most open sounding. You can't go wrong with this pedal. The negative reviews are from people who didn't know there were dip switches inside!

  • The mini was OK

    My buddy has a full size Red Dirt that I love the sound of. and although this was a really good sound, I didn't think it matched it's big brother version. But I still have it on my small board. Still a Keely... tough to go wrong with his stuff.
