Another excellent addition to the BearFoot FX range. The DRD4K has a wicked Gain range that goes from very clean to very mean. Add to that a subtle but effective Mids control and you have yourself one very versatile dirt box. It’s already proved its worth with me on the road so I can’t recommend it any more highly than that. If you’re in the market for a distortion pedal I think you would do well to have a close look at the Dyna Red 4K.

From the BearFoot FX website:

“The 4 knob DRD is a product of the original way Bjorn made the BJFe DRD. It was 3 knobs but it also had the lowmids control attached to the drive knob in reverse – so you got a beefier clean/low dirt sound and it tightened up for higher dirt settings. The new M control does all of this but also lets you use it in other ways to push the DRD into fuzzier territory or use it as an EQ for cleaner tones – a little mids can go a long way …… also has the red sparkle paint job and gold lettering.”
