  • Rat-like distortion

    I want a new distortion pedal, I quite like RATs but I dont like how the only option for tone shaping is the one "filter" knob. Is there anything else with a nice midrangy crunch but with a bit more going on?

      The filter knob is pretty cool, actually. It's basically a low-pass and hi-pass filter in one knob.

                  I dunno, but you've inspired me. I've always wanted a Rat, so I may try building one and using the 3 band EQ from my OD pedal in place of the Filter knob to see what happens. Thanks for the idea.

                            Ooh. Keep me in mind on this. I have an idea for you related to the Ratness and your EQ. F it, I'm gonna PM you.

                              Is there a Rat that can do palm mutes without farting? Every Rat I've tried sounds like **************** whenever I palm mute.
