    Jam Pedals RattlerPublished on 08/18/11 at 04:35
    This is a handmade boutique distortion pedal made from a young guy in Greece. This is modeled after the RAT with some differences, mainly being handmade and using carbon comp resistors. Can't quite remember if the original rats had those or not. Though both of them have the infamous LM308N chip.

    Specs are just like as a rat would be: level, tone and gain.

    The tone knob actually works the opposite way however, turning it clockwise would make it bassier and less trebly and turning it counterclockwise makes it more trebly.

    Uses a regular 9v adapter like any boss pedal.

    You just plug it in and let'er rip!!! No manual is really necessary!

    SOUND QUALITY

    I've always had a thing for the earlier rat pedals. It always has this bright yet strong sound. It was never a thick sound, though it could be tweaked to be and always have just enough gain on tap for lots of applications.

    This JAM version is very very reminiscent of the earlier rat pedals. I know he sometimes makes different versions with different twists, but none of that to me is really significant enough to be important. The original sound is what's important and this version of it sounds quite good to my ears.



    OVERALL OPINION

    Overall it's near perfect! I can't say what is, but something's missing, stopping it from being completely perfect. But this missing thing could be what's making the pedal slightly unique from the original rat, that is to say that maybe it's supposed to sound similar but not be exact, maybe better, to some players.

    And yes, of course I dig the paint job. Everybody and their mother does!! I've seen that they've nowadays become a bit more standardized which is good but I did like the originality of the home-made look about it.

    But it's a great RAT-copy pedal, high quality, well made and good parts. Cheaper than an original rat too if you can even find them anymore. I know there are some around and you can probably buy original-reissue-like ones from Proco. Still, a good pedal for those wanting to get their fix for that classic RAT sound without breaking the bank or taking out their original version for a gig or what have you.
