    So I've had occasion dessayer in my quick tests on Board: Guvnor (floating mediums such as 8080, Vol poop pushed) MXR distortion (too acidic), Fuzz Factory (uh TRSM solo singing rhythm but this is porridge) simulation 18watt marshall JFET ..; .. blah ..

    Then i played on any short-amps: Crate lamps and simulated digital (blah), Mesa Boogie F30 (sound too modern for me), VOX AC15 lamps (have reverb industrial shed poop, her yuck .. i may be wrong model essay ..) JCM2000 + 4HP: Ahh this is the bug ca SAINT GRAAAAAL.

    Well this PRO CO RATE my bluffVRAIMENTCest the best DISTO THAT NEVER TRIED IN JAI 17 YEARS OF GUITAR !!!

    A well rounded, beautiful hamoniques in low waouwCa sounds .. MARSHALL !! my ca reminder on my tests the same typology of its JCM..vraiement

    This is the first time that I can play on the distortion of the strat neck pickup (that of ht), and that the sound drooling pastrs balanced on the heads true cordesdu Hendrix! For example you can make arpges (intro AC-DC hells bells) and sounds good net heads notes !!! same high gain.

    We can do the kind Loverdrive Stones Completion its very heavy Annes 70trs typs Marshall Guns by exempleLe Tone knob to correct nickel.

    Really, this pedal 80 is given.

    Oh, I have a prciser choseje havent put the original post saturation diodes, 1N914.comme throughout my pedals I put spcialesvintages diodes that soften the sound died and are never used in the pedals for distortion but rfrenceca this is my little secret (price ever lide?);-)) .. with a strat this is paradise

    In short, his love of Vintage typ Marshall with grain, rockailleuxsautez this pedal !! This is the bomb!

    SOUND QUALITY

    I used the pedal for two concerts and every time we hear more guitar distortion when I enclenchais the pedal in the pedal rglant like this: 12h distortion filter 1h volume background .dropoff window the pedal sorely lacking medium. the meter must be a medium build on the amp. If Exceeds the distortion knob to 11 am the precision is lost and there is a kind of latency even with micro has low output level. if the pedal is gnial

    You users, you do not have this latency and lack of medium ???

    I was looking for a pedal that could get married with my Telecaster pickups mounted with Lollars. As the character is strong but is not intended for the big distortion at the base had to be typed but powerful pedal. Rat meets this criterion.
    The pedal is really solid and heavy. On a pedalboard that remains in place. I plugged into a power supply, I have not used the battery 9v.Enfin turn knob accurately.

    The Cut filter is perfect for managing acute sharp cutting of the Telecaster. Actually going to the right gradually cut. The Cut allows you to find a good balance of frequencies: precise bass and treble precisely dosed.

    I was looking for a pedal that could get married with my Telecaster pickups mounted with Lollars. As the character is strong but is not intended for the big distortion at the base had to be typed but powerful pedal. Rat meets this criterion.

    The Cut filter is perfect for managing acute sharp cutting of the Telecaster. Actually going to the right gradually cut. The Cut allows you to find a good balance of frequencies: precise bass and treble precisely dosed.
    The gain is a means to an overdrive distortion fuzz that turns toward the end of the race. I plugged mainly on Tubemeister H & K. By boosting the pedal type with TS have a little on his perfectly intelligible and powerful on a solo. I approach a sound Gilmourien adding a little delay. Around 12 am we obtain good sound thick with vintage touches.
    Overall gain is gradual and does not disintegrate at an end.
    This pedal is revealed with the right equipment with him and knows when to use it. Many people judge without knowing the material REALLY operate and that is unfortunate.
    Note that the first versions seem better but the difference is not obvious either.
    In short a pedal that teams well with single coils and Telecaster in particular. On humbucker we pass in a fatter register for big beats.
    No blame if we know why we research.

    ANALOG

    UTILIZATION

    very simple, three knobs, the filter works in reverse direction

    SOUND QUALITY

    very effective on single coil, its a little "dirty" with a slight overdrive upstream it gives a very effective big distortion. rating 8/10

    OVERALL OPINION

    much better than my Boss DS-1 wiser than my big muff
    good value for money rating 8/10

    Distortion pedal. Turn off, left distortion, filter and volume in the middle right. Super solid case except the power button I farted once (in 3 years) rather recurring problem from the service department. hum.

    UTILIZATION

    POINT NEGATIVE: the power supply. These idiots have screwed a standard jack Allim end. What a crock.

    To use it is very simple, the knobs are very sensitive and react quickly, which allows you to find THE perfect setting. Pure happiness. Rock 80's, 90's thoroughly.

    Looking for a pedal that sends? A unique and recognizable among its 40,000 pedals? Let's go ...

    Since I bought it is simple, I said bye bye to my boss and my mxr, even my harmonix elec I bought before ... be careful Proco Rat distortion is to have a its very distinctive have to be careful with what pedals bind ... but Joy Division Radiohead fiddling we come to have the same type of "grain".

    Basically love it or hate it, being a fan of 80's rock I'm in my element.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had 3 years and I've never found the equivalent in the type of sound I wanted.

    I'm the type to buy the pedals on a whim so I have a sacred collection. Since I have it I sold my other distortion. When you have the top at home why go elsewhere ...

    The feature I like least: the hot and the. audio jack, rather sucks when your pedals are plugués on a typical boss Allim garland style headphone ...

    I do it again this choice without hesitation. Besides, I'll try to convince my bass player ... Then like us, it has a sacred mouth !!

    A Super OD which turns to distortion with a small modification see TIP AF ^ ^ and as said in previous reviews the fuzz when you put a background.

    this is analog with cheap but super effective components. For me 3 1 effects and quality very correct.

    UTILIZATION

    Using simple volume, filter, and Disto, volume tone 12h to 12h-13h and distortion according to your desires.

    in short it is just plain know how to turn a knob.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Talking about qualitée OD is a very typical OD, there are the sounds of M and Black Desire for a distortion to 13h beyond what is OD Green Day, California rock and sending good background a slight fuzz, good is far from a Hendrix or ZZTOP but we......

    SOUND QUALITY

    Talking about qualitée OD is a very typical OD, there are the sounds of M and Black Desire for a distortion to 13h beyond what is OD Green Day, California rock and sending good background a slight fuzz, good is far from a Hendrix or ZZTOP but we are in a single pedal several effects that we can work with others to complete.

    Anyway I find it very nice when we couple with a small cruch upstream personal TS9 I stick him just before, as said in other reviews, lightweight, for a given equilibrium because the EQ Filter (Tone) and limited and has trouble finding a clean TS9 therefore shows a beautiful OD EQ.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is a very good OD pedal to start because it has a great price / quality ratio and we have, if we tinker a little 3 effects 1 OD / DISTO / FUZZ what the good life :)

    Given the price made yourself treat yourself tested there and at worst it sells very well in Cygnus so there will be no regret.

    I personally have one and I pensse in aquérir for another verse and give me more possibilities.

    Analog effect could not be more simple.
    Not too big and solid as a tank.

    UTILIZATION

    Very easy to use.
    As usual in this kind of pedals, 3 knob settings.
    Suddenly no need for manual!!
    We quickly found the right sound, and then this pedal so tested on the net that it is not hard to find examples.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Large range of sound underfoot, you can go use boost filter with the fuzz and distortion.
    Like it promises.
    For me it is an essential pedal should not hesitate to put in his pedalboard.
    Whether with humbuckers or single sounds great on my Fender.

    Every time I come back to it.
    To further improve the potential mods are very numerous on the net and very simple to make as long as we know how to hold a soldering iron.
    Next step I intend to put him LM308 fitted to the original rat sounds better to my taste.
    Perfectible one point that I found is the power supply jack.

    Analog format distortion pedal for guitar. a 9v power supply format mini jack (not practice), three knobs, one volume one tone (upside down, pay attention to the treble and bass left to right), and a drive. A jack in a jack out and roll youth. All this in a solid shell appearance, although I would have preferred a big metal shell (history search for defects).

    UTILIZATION

    It's simple, what a distortion, not to panic, nothing is superfluous in this effect. Only the lack of an eq instead of a tone put me 9/10.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Welcome to a world of distortion, overdrive the researchers did not find their happiness. At least we have a tough quelquepeu warm distortion given the little switched gain. In this amount gradually gain knob, you arrive in grunge land, the sound of Nirvana and others is not far ... And the tone is fuzzy in the final laps, but is still sufficiently accurate. Pure distortion, selective but excellent.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 2 months on my rig, but I've been a big user studio before, his only fault is the power supply to the format mini jack, and if you are a fussy 3 band eq we would, but for this price ... It is already excellent. I remake that choice without hesitation, and in passing I will buy other Proco!

    Solid in his little metal case: it has a pure sound that goes a great crunch to fuzz galore.
    LED dens placed on top of the "A" RAT is the most beautiful effect when switched.

    UTILIZATION

    Simple to use:
    The knob "Distortion" is used to set up a crunch first quarter, then it goes into distortion up to half of the race. After it leaves fuzz ...
    The knob "Filter" adjusts the tone.
    The knob "Volume" ... volume (amazing right?)

    SOUND QUALITY

    The sounds are great crunch and diso. I love this pedal. I note that all guitarists who have even regulate such (filter 1h, 2h volume, distortion: in). I never use the distortion with the last half of the race knob.

    Losque I want to spend the mix solo, I simultaneously activates my overdrive Biyang OD-10. As a result, the cascade of two pedals gives me full of harmonics.
    on the other hand, it is proper to "my" pedal, but once in ten volume output rises or falls during concert ... while the pots have not changed position. In these cases, I replace it with a distortion Biyang DS-10 that I keep "just in case" time to finish the concert.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have my ProCo RAT years. It is well suited to the sound I like. It is far sounds Boss, Digitech. It is a distortion that ballad of OCD to the Big Muff (it is only my opinion).
    If she lets me one day, I replaced it with the same fail.
