i knew it was a Rat-type pedal with a dry/wet mix (normally a knob mounted on the side of the pedal) but that was about it. no clipping options on the usual mini-toggle either..
i am massively impressed!
here's the controls (i'm not sure Blake could even recall what was on this when i asked a few days ago):
- the gain and volume are standard.
- the small knob on the right is the Filter knob you'd normally get on a Rat.
- the small knob on the left is the dry/wet mix.
- centre knob seems to change the clipping.
what suprised me was the dry/wet knob was a little bit crackly, so i tried to work it a bit.. and a second later the knob pulls up.. its a push/pull knob!! haha.. IN = standard Rat, OUT = Ruetz mod sounds. excellent little suprise!
also, the dry/wet knob and volume work together so much better than any other overdrives i've used with that option. 100% dry with volume at zero is the same as bypassed clean signal. and ramping the mix up to noon the dry signal doesn't drop off in volume - bring up the volume knob and here cones the distortion added along side the dry signal. perfect. and how dry/wet mixes should work.
anyway, i got a lot more than i expected and there's plenty of sounds going on. built well, superbly executed design. well done Blake!
