Catalinbread's Dirty Little Secret Deluxe takes a fan-favorite pedal and loads it with upgrades, making it a great 'always-on' unit for players who love that classic Marshall Plexi sound. Much more than just a preamp pedal, this stompbox features an updated DLS circuit with a phase inverter, a power amp simulation, and an output transformer, giving it everything needed to deliver spot-on Plexi tones. Just plug it into your favorite amp, grab your go-to guitar, and experience the sound of pure rock 'n' roll.

Fans of the original Dirty Little Secret will notice several additions to the DLS Deluxe, including a toggle switch on the exterior that allows users to switch between Super Lead and Super Bass modes. Also, the iconic preamp tube simulator now serves as a built-in boost circuit that can be used independently of the primary circuit. Plus, the new Tightness knob grants total control over sub-bass frequencies, letting users enhance the clarity of their signal by cutting out the low end.

Key controls for fine-tuning your sound:

-MASTER: Sets the output of the Dirty Little Secret Deluxe. Just like a real amp, it's placed before the phase inverter and output transformer.
-PREAMP: Dial in that killer preamp sound, now with a broader gain range, cleaner lows, and more accurate cranked Marshall tones.
-PRESENCE: When turned down fully, this low-pass filter reduces frequencies above 1.59KHz by 3dB.
-BOOST: An awesome-sounding boost that can be run before or after the Dirty Little Secret Deluxe for more saturation or volume, respectively.
-BOOST VOLUME: Sets the output for the boost circuit.
-3-BAND EQ: Sculpt your signal with precision using the TREBLE, MID, and BASS controls.
-SL/SB Toggle: Switch between Super Lead (bright, upper-midrange-heavy tone) or Super Bass (smooth, resonant, and lower-mids-heavy.)

Complete with a line out jack and a durable, eye-catching chassis, the Dirty Little Secret Deluxe is a comprehensive performance tool that fully honors the DLS lineage. Take your sound to the next level with the Dirty Little Secret Deluxe - the ultimate pedal for harnessing rich, rockin' tones.
