Pro Co RAT2 Distortion Pedal Details

The Pro Co RAT 2 features the legendary the legendary RAT Filter control. Turn it to the right to roll off brittle high-end frequencies. Having trouble cutting through the mix? Turn the Filter down and allow the natural brightness of your instrument to shine through. The Distortion and Volume controls dial in the perfect amount of gain while keeping the level consistent with your clean tone. While thereā??s no mistaking the legendary RAT tone when the pedal is on, true bypass switching guarantees that no extra noise will creep into your signal when itā??s turned off.

This is the classic RAT tone. The standard that all other distortion devices are measured against. Heard on thousands of recordings, it has helped define the sound of the past three decadeā??s most influential bands.

The beauty of the RAT 2 lies in its versatility. Used as a primary distortion, it excels at arena rock rhythm tones and soaring leads. Do you have a powerful amp with too much headroom for the gig? The RAT 2 nails that sweet spot where a tube amp goes from sparkly clean to warm overdrive. Maybe you already love your ampā??s distortion. Use the RAT 2 as a boost for solos and get the extra kick you need.

What We Think - Pro Co RAT2 Review

I am proud to own the Pro Co RAT2. I have loved this pedal for many years, and it is on virtually every rhythm guitar track I record. This can do everything from being a simple filter in front of your amp, to being a boost/over drive stomp, to full out distortion. This is hands down my favorite distortion for Grind Core, Doom, and Groove. It is thick, rich, intelligible, andā?¦ā?¦. Well just get one and hear it for yourself. You will not be disappointed. Whether you are a Tone Purists looking for that gnarly vintage tone, or a Punk Rocker, or a Metal Head (heck it even smokes on Blues and Fusion), this is a pedal that should be in your arsenal.
