Mellow to mindblowing distortion with true bypass and much more!

The Pro Co RAT2 Distortion Pedal is different from any you've ever heard, with sounds ranging from a mellow twin to a raging English stack. Its smooth distortion puts extra punch in rhythm work and makes solos cut through with authority and power. The Rat2 has glow-in-the-dark luminescent control graphics and new LED status indicator for easy use on dark stages. Steel enclosure has a "no tools" battery compartment. True bypass mode utilizes passive switching of both input and output to eliminate the loss of power and clarity caused by other devices.

Features

  • Distortion ranging from a mellow twin to a raging English stack
  • Extra punch in rhythm work and makes solos cut through with authority
  • Glow-in-the-dark luminescent control graphics
  • LED status indicator
  • No-tools battery compartment

    Comments about Pro Co RAT2 Distortion Pedal:

    I don't need a boutique pedal to get classic rock, blues and distortion tones. It's all there in the Rat pedal. I love the grind it can produce. It's raw and powerful.

    Pro Co Rat2: the "Zippo lighter" of distortion pedals

    By positivepicker

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Pro Co RAT2 Distortion Pedal:

    If you play wedding receptions, as I do, you have to cover a wide variety of music styles. And you have to set up very quickly. And you sometimes have to play in a cramped corner of a country club or hotel ballroom.

    In this environment, using a lot of pedals just doesn't work. The guests spill beer on them, and the singer trips over them. When I have to work a crowd, please a client, and get paid, I don't want to be looking at my feet.

    So bring on the ProCo Rat 2. I set the Distortion, Filter, and Volume knobs to the 12:00 position, and I can play any style of rock guitar (or blues, jazz, R&B) that a general audience might want to hear.

    The Rat2 tracks my dynamics like no other distortion I've ever used. I turn the guitar volume down, or hit the strings softly, and the Rat2 gives me a lightly distorted rock rhythm guitar tone (think Keith Richards). I turn my guitar volume to 10, and I get a wailing, sustaining solo tone (Neal Schon). I go to the neck pickup and turn the volume and tone down a little bit and I get a funky, raspy tone that I might use for an R&B/jazz solo (John Scofield). One setting, three sounds (and more).

    Like the famous, simple, totally functional Zippo lighter, the Rat2 does one thing, and does it well. No bells and whistles, no foolin' around, no nonsense. It distorts your guitar tone in a highly musical way, which you can make work for every type of rock and blues music you're likely to play.

    It's THE distortion box to use, if you're using just one.

    It's a professional tool, a musical instrument, a necessity.

    The ProCo Rat2 makes it way easier for me to go out and earn money with my electric guitar.

    Don't leave home without it.

    Please know I've owned this pedal for almost 20 years now and it still outshines all other distortion pedals I've come across.

    I've played it

    Comments about Pro Co RAT2 Distortion Pedal:

    This is a good pedal, I've always liked this pedal. I've always had a boss distortion pedal and I've yet to buy this one. It's a little pricey but four stars is a good review. If you have no pedals and are thinking about buying this one, you would be making a solid choice.

    Well.. this pedal is really great for all types of music, but you are going to have an equalizer, or else it's no use

    Outstanding

    Comments about Pro Co RAT2 Distortion Pedal:

    Has fantastic range of tones and a lovely fuzzy, crunchy hard distortion when maxed out. Will stand up to ANY knocks and drops. It is rock solid. Price is great for the only distortion pedal you will need to buy!
