Unlike most distortion pedals that sound like a bottled mosquito, the Dirty Deed is very open and natural, capturing the tone of a classic overdriven amplifier, essentially becoming “channel two” of any clean amp. We used a pair of cross-connected MOSFETs for a rich, warm distortion and natural tonal character with amp-like touch sensitivity. Runs on standard 9v to 18v DC power supplies. At 18v the Dirty Deed enhances overall saturation and compression.
The distortion is thick and beefy with a sweet spot in the mid-range EQ and a strong bass response. The Dirty Deed is an analog, 100% true bypass pedal that is assembled and designed right in the heart of Seymour Duncan headquarters in Santa Barbara, California.
