    Apparently the Dirty Dog was designed by James Brown who is now the brains behind Amptweaker. He used to work at Peavey. The Dirty Dog is big, heavy, and ugly just the way that old Peavey gear should be. I'm massively stoked to pick it up. Here's a youtube demo:



    Anybody here have one of these?

    Nice! I love my Eruptor, but it definitely has its limitations. I'll eventually be trading it out as well, but I'm waiting for my ideal Fuzz Face style pedal.

    2nd time in my life I have seen a reference to this pedal. Not so long ago, either GC or Musicgoround had one of these on their website - might still be there. Too big, too heavy, too ugly for my current pedal preferences.

    I had one for a while. If you like the lead and crunch channels on Peavey Transtube amps you'll like it, that's basically what it is.

    I played with another guitarist that used one of those years ago. It actually sounds pretty good - I had always kinda wanted one. I never happened across one, but never really looked to hard either.

    How does playing it through a different amp and speaker colour the tone?

    I like it . Never had one . I had a good set up one time a Peavey t-27 and Peavey Classic VT . Peavey stuff goes together it's designed to work well with each other . Love to hear it though a Bandit or another Peavey amp

    Sorry, it's been several years so I don't remember exactly. I don't even remember what amp I was using at the time.

    Picked this up after work today. Totally stoked and I think I got the better end of the trade. The pedal works great with the amp's clean tone and the amp's dirt.

    It's basically a two channel distortion pedal with a bypass switch, so if you set your amp to the clean channel and then dial in two super different dirt levels on the pedal, you have three "channels" at your disposal all at the press of a switch.

    And it's big enough and heavy enough to use as a door stop.

    A weird pedal I’ve never heard of? Where do I sign up?
