Catalinbread Effects Releases Limited-Edition Dirty Little Secret Red Mod

A plexi-style stomp that's limited to only 100 pieces.

Portland, OR (July 2, 2019) -- Catalinbread Effects has released a limited and modded version of their beloved Dirty Little Secret, plexi-style overdrive. There will only be 100 available exclusively through catalinbread.com.

If the classic Dirty Little Secret MkIII is your war-tested Marshall Plexi sidearm, Catalinbread’s special Limited Edition DLS Red Mod is a finely-tuned and well-oiled (figuratively, of course) gain machine that was hot-rodded by your friend’s uncle’s amp wizard cousin. Featuring a more refined set of gain stages that cuts through the low-mids of the original and brings you an extended barrage of punch and clarity, the DLS Red Mod calls shotgun in the truck that is your pedalboard’s dirt section. Catalinbread’s flagship DLS circuitry has been modified to give you more of everything you love about the original with a touch more blistering, amp-smashing gain across both modes, as well as a more hi-fi EQ section and a fully-balanced—yet still very much Marshall—tonal profile.

Features:

  • Two distinct voicings: "Super Lead" and "Super Bass" switchable via an internal slider switch.
  • A full three-knob “treble-middle-bass” tone control complement that reproduces exactly the tone circuits of the Super Lead and Super Bass amps.
  • Presence trimpot (accessible by removing the bottom plate) that allows you to fine-tune the amount of presence or high treble frequencies that the pedal produces.
  • Hand-built in Portland,OR
  • 4 year warranty
  • Retail price of $189.99

Catalinbread Effects is offering the Dirty Little Secret Limited Edition Red Mod for $189.99.

Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
