What's new in the Dirty Little Secret:
- The DLS now offers two distinct voicings, "Super Lead" and "Super Bass," switchable via an internal slider switch
- Completely redesigned full three-knob treble, middle, bass tone control complement that reconfigures for each mode setting
- There's also an added internal presence trimmer that allows you to fine-tune the presence of the pedal precisely to your guitar and amp combination
- The gain range is much wider and even more responsive to pickup types, playing dynamics and instrument volume knob!
The "Super Lead" mode expands the range of the DLS MkII with more gain available and more control over your tone sculpting with the addition of the midrange control without losing any of the touch-sensitive dynamic qualities that made the MkII so great to play – in fact, those qualities have been enhanced. The gain range now goes from classic plexi all the way to modified JCM800 levels and can get even more raw and open than any previous DLS. This mode was voiced specifically to make humbucker-equipped guitars really rock with clean to scream all from the twist of your guitar's volume knob.
The "Super Bass" mode is a new voicing that gives you the tone and gain structure of a Marshall Super Bass (which is very similar to a JTM45 or JTM50/100). This mode was voiced to really hone in on that elusive in-between "not quite clean, not quite dirty" response that old tube amps were so good at getting. And it was specifically voiced to make fuzz pedals sound great (especially two-transistor based fuzzes like the Fuzz Face). Plug a Strat into a Fuzz Face into the new DLS in SB mode and you'll see what we mean!
