Robert Keeley has been modifying Tube Screamers since 2001, and has seen Steve Vai and Joe Satriani, among others, use his modded pedals.
"It's a classy take on a TS-style overdrive with practical added options"
His own Red Dirt put all of those mods into a single pedal and added a JFET input buffer for a more dynamic sound, and now it's available in mini-pedal format.
With a large knob for drive and smaller ones for tone and level, it follows the standard TS configuration.
Tucked away under its four-screw baseplate, however, are two DIP switches that allow you to change the clipping diodes for four different modes - distortion, overdrive, crunch and amp - each cleaner than the next and all delivered with great string clarity. It's a classy take on a TS-style overdrive with practical added options.
A tasty overdrive that naturally complements your sound, with versatility galore inside.
