KEELEY Red Dirt


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.
