Catalinbread Effects Releases the Dirty Little Secret Red

An updated take on the company's plexi-style dirt box.

Portland, OR (November 28, 2019) -- Catalinbread Effects has released an updated, hot-rodded version of their beloved Dirty Little Secret, plexi-style overdrive.

If the classic Dirty Little Secret MKIII is your war-tested Marshall Plexi sidearm, Catalinbread’s DLS Red is a finely-tuned and well-oiled (figuratively, of course) gain machine that we distilled into a more potent and volatile formula. 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 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

The Dirty Little Secret Red is available for $189.99 through participating retailers and catalinbread.com.
