    Re: Forgot about that RAT magic

    Had a RAT Deucetone for awhile...just couldn't get on with it tbh and ended up selling it. It was just a little too fuzzy pour moi. Lot's of great tones have come from it though!
    TOUQUE ROCK...EH???? I AM CANADIAN

      I’ll break mine out every once in while. I want to love it, and sometimes I do. But for some reason, sometimes I don’t. Yeah, confuses me too.

      I do like the fuzz that it can give.

        I think the ProCo is one of the GREAT industrial designs, it’s business-like and indestructible. My DIY clone on the other hand, is decidedly un-industrial.

        Wampler designed Paisley-rat? Thats pretty cool btw

            I still use my TC Nova drive, which is a rat clone and tube screamer together in one pedal. They can be stacked either way or run parallel and midi controlled for 18 different settings. I love the rat side of it for a lot of rock songs. I have tons of other drive pedals but this one is so versatile I’ll probably always keep one.

              OK - never looked at that too hard, but damn that thing looks awesome!

              - TS9, with blend control!
              - Rat, with bass and treble!
              - Stackable
              - Programmable

              wow....

                I've never heard that the distortion side of the Nova Drive was actually based on a Rat. If you don't mind my asking, how were you able to determine that?

Which is why many people play electric guitars but very very few of them are actually musicians.

                  Just got one of these in the mail today. Bought it from a guy on a Facebook pedal page. Dirt cheap and I’m getting great sounds out of it.
