The tone controls get reconfigured, depending on what mode the pedal is set to. Whether in SL or SB mode, the tone circuit is exactly, part-for-part, the same tone circuit as found in Super Lead and Super Bass Marshalls, and they will behave and interact the same way as on their amp counterparts.
• Full featured bass, middle, and treble tone controls provide precise adjustments for a multitude of tones and to match your amp and guitar.
• Preamp controls the gain or amount of overdrive. The new DLS was tuned to allow a bit more gain than most plexi Marshalls actually got. Super Bass mode was tuned to have less gain then the Super Lead mode to get more of that early Marshall response.
• Master knob controls the output volume. For the best response out of your DLS, you should set the Master volume so that the sound with the DLS engaged is a bit louder than your bypassed sound.
• Consider your guitar's volume knob as part of the Dirty Little Secret's control surface. Even in Super Lead mode with the Pre-Amp cranked, you can get a perfectly clean sound by rolling back your guitar's volume knob.
The Dirty Little Secret has earned itself a well-deserved reputation for replicating the sound and feel of a classic era Marshall amplifier, supplying one of the most iconic guitar sounds in music. When the JFETs used as the base for the Dirty Little Secret were discontinued, and as our stock of them began to dwindle we knew we had to find ones still being manufactured. However, rather than simply re-voicing around these new JFETs, we decided to push the envelope and provide an amazingly robust feature-set, from ever evolving listening and circuit skills, and pure power of intention. This isn't just 'a' Marshall in a box, it's the most versatile and dynamic Marshall-style overdrive out there!
The Dirty Little Secret (DLS) is an overdrive pedal designed to bring you the sound and response of a classic Marshall amplifier. It, like the other pedals in our Foundation Overdrive range of pedals, is designed to be a "foundation" pedal - it is your "always on" pedal that forms the core of your guitar sound which you can enhance and embellish by adding boosters, fuzzes, filters, and other overdrives in front of it - just like you would in front of a real amp. And the reason you can leave it always-on is that you can get a great clean sound just by rolling your guitar's volume knob back! That's the way the old school Marshall players did things!
