Legendary Distortion/ Overdrive PedalAs the Rat appeared in the 80s, it really brought fresh air into the - at that time - small market of distortion effects: a healthy mix of distortion, sustain and assertiveness made the pedal to the evergreen which was copied a lot. And even today it can still assert itself: not as gentle as an overdrive, not as brutal as modern distortions, absolutely distinctive and interesting.

Decent, versatile distortion pedal.

05.10.2016
It's hard to fault this pedal. It punches perfectly within its weight as a cheap but good sounding and versatile distortion. It has a very rich saturation and tweaking the distortion control gives a wide range of tone in terms of gain and harmonic content. I find that as you turn up the distortion it quickly goes from a light overdrive to a fairly bright drive sound; however the pedal also has a low pass filter that you can use to dip the higher frequency content without making the distortion dull and muddy. Aside from that the only control is a volume knob, which is as exciting as it sounds. So the pedal isn't loaded with features but what it does - it does very well.

The build quality is very good. The pedal is housed in a heavy-duty metal case, with a quality switch and very sturdy knobs. It's definitely ready for years of abuse. However, those looking to integrate the pedal onto their pedal board need to take notice of the fact that the AC connection is not a standard 9v connection so an adapter is necessary to hook it up to a standard power supply.

ProCo Rat 2

16.03.2017
I remember wanting to buy one of these in the 80s (I should have as the originals are worth a fortune now). It is a very distinct sounding distortion, but I have to admit would challenge some very expensive boutique pedals attempting to do the same.

The tone control is not what can be described as subtle. At either end you are in 'muffled' sounding with no mid or top end and at the other end your ear drums being scraped out violently with rusty nail, with, as always the happy medium at 12 o'clock.

In terms of power DON'T FORGET TO PURCHASE THE ADAPTER or you will be stuck with using batteries.

There is also an extreme amount of distortion available up to and bordering on fuzz territory, and it is quite unique.

And then we come to the price, around 70¤ ...... how can you go wrong for this price. It is built like a brick (and also weighs like a brick) and totally over engineered being probably be one of the few remaining remnants of human civilization after the 3rd word war (it is built that well).

It gives you that classic 80s distortion and lets you re-live the drive sounds you remember from your youth, whilst helping you through mid-life crisis.

At the current market price, you have to have one in your gig bag. It is a must!
