More Fuzz Than a Police Convention!

You Dirty Rat, the latest revolution in stomp boxes is here. In the late 70's the engineers at Pro Co Sound invented modern distortion pedals with their creation of the now famous RAT. Pro Co Sound introduced the new You Dirty Rat, part of the Rat line, at the winter NAMM 2004 show with much applause. The You Dirty Rat pedal now adds 3dB of compression to the classic fuzz tone, creating attitude while giving the discerning player maximum sustain. Grab a You Dirty Rat and see where you can take your tone!

Holy "RAT" Batman

What an awesome pedal, I searched review after review on this pedal and found various opinions on it. Here is my take: I play a Fender American Special HSS (LIndy Fralin p-92,bridge) through a Fender Blues jr. (no mods). None of the reviews wether positive or negative give this pedal its due justice. To really appreciate its "character" it must be played, not by others, by YOU! The controls are simple, the distortion goes from nice and light and even cleaner when the volume knob is rolled back to full on growl. The filter knob is fantastic, kinda acts as a scoop knob/presence knob combo. Last but not least, volume to blend it perfectly to your rig. Don't let negative reviews keep you from trying this pedal, you won't know what you are missing. It loves single coils and plays nice with others, while being the coolest kid on the block. For a dynamic, smooth, OD/Dist. for under 100.00 this can't be beat !
