One Control Rebel Red Distortion 4K
Rebel Red Distortion BJF Series FX | Distortion Pedal
The original Rebel Red Distortion (RRD) was designed for those who sought those tones that emanated from older 70s and 80s UK based tube amps that had been modded by the new generation of amp techs in Southern California and elsewhere. JMP and JCM era flavors with perhaps a little Josè touch to goose the gain to new levels of dynamic compression and distortion.
The new RRD4K (four knob) model adds an innovative “Drive” control to allow players to effectively control the pre-gain staging within the pedal, similar to how adding an extra stage of tube preamp in those amp mods enabled players to “goose” those amps to levels of distortion never attainable before. The treble control has been revoiced to allow most frequencies through while sculpting the upper range to mate with most varieties of tube and solid-state amplifiers.
Our original RRD was designed with a very clean sounding older combo in mind and had a distortion that was thick and darker sounding. This new upgrade makes the RRD4K a much more versatile model that retains the thick lower mids of the original with enhanced treble emphasis and with more precise control of the gain structure to go from a ragged tube overdrive to a raging hard rock and metal dynamics you can expect from a Björn Juhl pedal.

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.
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. 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.
