Based on the company’s similarly named 40-watt amp, the Friedman | Dirty Shirley is a lower gain Plexi-Style overdrive pedal that offers a 3-band EQ and Presence knob for flexible tone sculpting, and an extra Tight switch on the side to increase punch. It can deliver a wide range of tones.
The Friedman Dirty Shirley all-tube amp is well known for being one of the most flexible and touch-responsive single-channel amplifiers on the market. Now you can get that same tonal versatility, sensitivity and harmonically rich overdrive in a pedal. The Dirty Shirley Overdrive packs the same intuitive control set as the amplifier, allowing you to dial in your perfect shade of rock in no time. It doesn’t matter if you want a high-output cleaner tone for pushing your amp hard or a thick gritty drive that will sit well in any classic to modern rock band, a sweep of the gain control easily gets you there. If you ever want reign in the low end, for a punchier feel, simply flip the side-mounted Tight switch and away you go. If you want to experience the amp’s accolade-garnering tone in the convenience of a pedal, put the Dirty Shirley Overdrive on your board today.
British rock at its best
Though the Dirty Shirley overdrive can scream with an unabashedly rock ‘n’ roll voice, you’ll be surprised at how truly versatile it is. To get more out of the amp you already have, roll the pedal’s gain knob back, crank the volume and get a killer dirty boost. And of course, roll up the gain and witness how well the pedal responds to every touch and manipulation of your guitar’s controls.
