The Rockbox The Red Dog is a distinctive distortion pedal with volume and gain controls to easily dial in tones from a tweed-like overdrive to aggressive punch.
The Red Dog was originally voiced to work best as an 'always on' distortion and respond to picking dynamics and the volume knob on a guitar. In recent auditions by our family of artists, however, we are finding that the Red Dog is also a great distintive solo machine with a signature note bloom and immediacy not present in other distortion devices, especially above the 12th fret. The Red Dog is also a superior solo machine when placed after the Boiling Point, with the Boiling Point set to mild clean boost. If you are a volume knob player, you will love how this pedal will clean up for a thick, classic rhythm sound.The Red Dog is built using the finest audiophile grade components we can find, with minimum signal path interference for a very present response.
Final assembly of our effects are followed one final test: Each finished pedal is auditioned using the best test we know of - we listen to it.We truly believe that the Red Dog is one of the finest distortion effects you will ever purchase. The Red Dogwill add a wide range of useful tones to your toolbox. Even with the Red Dog signature sound, it will allow your guitar's sound to remain the foundation of that sound even with the most aggressive distortion settings.If you are like most of us, and have wasted money in the past on effects that just didn't cut it, the Red Dog will make a believer out of you. We think that you will find the Red Dog to be a useful tool in your arsenal of sound, and will get a permanent spot on your pedalboard.
