Seymour Duncan Releases the Dirty Deed Overdrive Pedal

Seymour Duncan have just released a new overdrive pedal, the Dirty Deed. It’s aimed towards either the classic rock crowd or at metalheads who wish their high-gain amps had an orange channel. The main selling point here is an active bass and treble control, which can add or subtract 12db. Not exactly unheard of, but it’s less common than the single passive treble roll-off tone knob that the majority of distortion pedals have.

Also, the DC input accepts anything from 9v to 18v, which can slightly change the tone in useful ways, and is also simply useful if your power supply’s 9v jacks are all taken but you have a spare 12v port not in use.
