The Rebel Red Distortion is a custom recreation of the famous and extremely sought-after BJF Dyna Red Distortion (released in 2001), which allows the player to create a thick and dark BJF-like tone while maintaining controllability of the distortion.
Guitarists love their own sound. There's a moment in every guitarists' life when they create something, whether it's a riff or even develop their own tone, and become completely obsessed with it. Luckily, effects are part of this moment. The technical specifications matter, but most importantly, it's the impact that the effect has on your emotions that matters most. For this reason, I created the Rebel Red Distortion.
Once upon a time, I released a pedal in 2001 named the BJFE Dyna Red Distortion. This pedal was a middle gain distortion pedal that can create everything from a crunchy low gain tone to a crispy heavy sound. Not only did it produce a wide range of sounds, it also created a world-wide renowned distortion sound.
One Control Rebel Red Distortion is a custom version of the BJFE Dyna Red Distortion. This means the user can expect a modern and thick sound while maintaining exquisite timbre characteristics, just like the original model. It has a unique darkness for a distortion pedal. Keep in mind that the sound may be dark, however it is not buried.
The main difference between both models lies in the EQ. The Red Rebel has more low mids and a softer treble. Gain wise, they are practically the same.
This pedal can be used with any amp or pickups. You`ll notice the best results with a high output pickup, including a humbucker pickup, especially for contemporary high-gain riffs where legato is present. As for the Tone coloring, the low to mid frequencies are particularly suitable for a lead tone. The perfect combination for the Red Rebel Distortion is for a guitarist who has a Strat and bridge pickup. Additionally, the Red Rebel will compliment any tone, especially a bright sounding tone.
If it's a single coil pickup guitar, it's easy to create a classic rock sound. Just like the Dyna Red Distortion, the Rebel Red Distortion demonstrates its power at a high volume.
