The Rat 2 can achieve a nice fuzz-like distortion, warm blues, trebly-high metal tones and more. Gear UP!!!

Just changed from a Pro Co Turbo Rat to this. In my Marshall TSL 100 rig, the Turbo was terrible – But the Rat mk2 is perfect..go figure
Set up right, I think the Rat 2 could be great for Black Metal, which is what I kinda wanna get one for, but also a lot more than just that as well.
you can see him swtiching channels from green to red…its not just the pedal alone. Not pointing that out is sort of smoke and mirrors.
I have a 30 or so year old RAT (when you get to be my age you forget how old stuff is… its from the ’80s anyways. I think…) but I much prefer my (same age) B.K. Butler Tube Driver. Even if the Rat has higher gain and more distortion, the Tube Driver just has more sustain and clarity and – when it gets hot – it adds a tiny bit of controllable harmonic distortion that this thing just cannot match.
Im getting this…
I can hear Nirvana – Breed in this pedal.
Finally, a Rat review where the reviewer plays more than 10 seconds of rhythm and doesn’t play 10 minutes and wanky widdley shite. Great review!
this is the Chinese?
my RAT arrives thursday!!
Great Review BTW
haha, I just love the dmn intro to this.. Im looking on buying this pedal, having doubts..
Someone mail this guy a sandwich!
BEST pedal demo EVER!!!!!!! Thank you! To the point, not too much noodling and no talking. <3. SOLD
I wish ALL pedal reviews were as simple and effective as this one. Kudos.
que sucio por favor!!!!aguante el metal zone
i used to hate these, thought they were too fuzzy. now, not so bad, and they have a kind of sag-y feel when the gain is dimed. I don’t think it would ever be dimed on my pedalboard but probably somewhere from 9-10 o’clock to 1 oclock would be the most “musical” sounds, to my ears.
