  • Dyna Red Distortion (DRD) - Dynamic, harmonic "plexi" kind of nature (released 9th May 2001). The DRD provides distortion from almost none to fairly heavy and can give a crunchy sound to a cleaner amplifier. With the Drive control below 12 o'clock the pedal provides dynamic distortion whereas above 12 o'clock it is full distortion regardless of your pick attack. The DRD can be used with distorted amplifiers but in this instance there may be just a bit too much crunch. So, the DRD would be the choice if the amp is needed to run fairly clean and then DRD can add the desired amount of distortion so that. If you want to go into real easy play, yet defined sounds, then hook up guitar->LGW->DRD. It is not really suited to Vox amps, where the EGDM, HBOD, RRB or LGW would be a better choice. The very first DRD was called the "FUZZ 2" and like the CAF was originally designed for use with a light humbucker and P-90's. The early models had a flat red color and were covered in Nitrocellulose lacquer. The color was changed to a brighter oil-based color in 2004. As stated, this was designed for P-90 pickups and if you want the same kind of sound that is better suited to a Fender Stratocaster then BJ suggests you consider the Mad Professor Might Red Distortion (MRD) pedal. A tip on the DRD is to run it at 7.5 V or a little less, which gives it a bit more saturation. Some other individual pedal differences are:
    - Serial number #179 has cat artwork on the front bottom right.
    - Serial number #214 has what appears to be three yellow dots and five green dots painted on the bottom right of the front. Those dots are actually stickers that were placed on by a previous owner and is not the work of BJ, Eva or Donner; closer inspection shows that the yellow dots are smiley faces, and the green dots are clovers.
    - Serial number #267 is called "Dynamic Orange Distortion" (see note below).
    - Serial number #300 has a blue LED.
    - Serial number #360 is called "Doc Rock's Distortion" (see note below).
    The backplate artwork on the DRD is a cat on its front paws arching its back and tail (some early pedals just have the back of a cat or the back of two cats sitting together with one looking at the other).
