ProCo Sound You Dirty RAT
PDAL of Disto / Fuzz plutt compact (8 x 8 cm approx) and trs solid (nested and two aluminum profiles visss actually)
three knobs (distortion, filter, volume)
True Bypass
Socket for power supply sector format mini jack (+ at the end like the EHX)
a battery door that opens with a good old dune CHC m4 will annoy you when you have virtual feet and paste it to your pedalboard (a live atte believe that a drop of water or fresh e is more expensive)


Barf config is an effect pedals with three knobs, a kid of three years with a minimum of ear will come out.

Be careful not kick in the operating knobs, these being close to the switch trs


Good as well tell you right now we do not lace, it's big, it's bold, it's full of bass, it pchu, you see an All Black you above all dark blinds? It's been a few prs the same impression.

There's a lot of gain, even with this one at least one remains in distortion, has never drops in crunches (all fawn is not really what is asked).
The knob of filter provides a medium fuzz (it would not be as gaudy a Big Muff) a great disto much deaf.

Personal I have a parameter of Manir Fuzz plutt serious and not too pronnonce (just like Moonspell for connoisseurs)


It is not the miracle Fuzz has is not the distortion that dchire all, it just filled the specifications table that I had (more compact than a Big Muff with a power supply sector and its close enough).

A try, but I think it will score as gnrations original RAT

ProCo Sound You Dirty RAT
Pedal overdrive / distortion / fuzz Analog Made in USA.
All metal construction, I jump on mine for two years now, it has not budged ... True Bypass.
A little scratch on a galley pedal board: 4 rubber feet on the student-and screw the trap exceeds a chouille. So we turn the skates, and it is good for two layers of Velcro to compensate for the head of the screw. Well, we survived, anyway ...


Super simple: Distortion, Filter, Volume ...
Distortion affects the rate distortion (Seriously?), The filter correspond to a bass / treble but would act on the envelope of sound (subtil. ..) and the volume can get angry very quickly with his entourage, his group, neighbors, etc. ...
You find it immediately, provided that the pedal matches what you're looking at first ... It's not necessarily a distortion that goes for everyone ...
The manual? But what book?? why do a manual??

Quote: "If you spend more than 5 minutes to find a proper distortion pedal on, that you pass thee is a multi effects, grasshopper ... or a Boss od 20, but there is well done to you, you seek, as ...". A multi effects, it's good for home studio (well, me, I'm not a customer digital ...) and octopus with four legs, three arms and twenty eight toes ... Unwieldy on stage (to stoop to settle my case ds is already completely unacceptable for use Live) ... But this is only my opinion ...


Whaaaa ... Yes, there's the sound, no problem, it's there!
Amateurs sharp riffs, welcome aboard! Me, I chose for it: it was what I was looking for her, and the possibility of having a consistently accurate sound, powerful, that does not blur, that does not puke, or only when asked .. .. Something for riffs or even if it tears, every note remains distinct ...
In fact, she goes fast enough in Fuzz. I use it with the volume pot of distortion between 10 and 11 H, very rarely beyond. There, the sound is the razor. I played with a Starplayer TV (Duesenberg).
Beyond 11 hours, there is a distortion that quickly finds the Fuzz, but thanks to the filter, we arrive at that dose really well, starting to sound really dirty, or stay on the edge of No Fuzz ... problem of breath in me, no ...


I use it for 3 years ... it's one of my favorite pedals! Like any rock guitarist a hair flirting with middle age, I tried and owned lots of distos ... Moult among others, I had an original Rat, whom I adored. The Rat 2, Reissue, Turbo Rat, bof, after the true and only, it did more .... This little Rat (it's the least expensive of the range ..) gives me exactly the sound I looking for a specific kind of distortion Brittpunk ..
I rarely kept a distortion that long.
I do not know if I buy it back ... there's new stuff on the market including the most excellent Blackstar HT Dual ds happy to be hosting my pedal board. Found at 65 euros FDP in on Ebay. Never had a signature sound as distinct for that price ... Even if I had to replace it, I do not part with!
