Overview

The key to Pro Co's You Dirty RAT tone is in its germanium clipping diodes. Any effect pedal aficionado will tell you that nothing compares to the warm tone that these sought-after components provide. This distortion pedal is the perfect middle ground between distortion and fuzz, combining the characteristic cutting RAT tone with the warmth of a classic fuzz-tone.

The You Dirty RAT distortion pedal also provides 3 dB more compression than the original RAT. This not only provides more "tube amp warmth," but ads extra sustain.

The Pro Co You Dirty RAT pedal features 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 there's no mistaking the legendary RAT tone when the guitar pedal is on, true-bypass switching ensures that when the pedal is off, there is no coloration of your sound.

Pro Co Sound has been building professional effects since 1979. Since then, the RAT guitar pedal has evolved from a single, hand-built prototype into a family of versatile distortion pedals.

Great pedal

By Chris

Comments about Pro Co You Dirty Rat Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

I've been using one of these for a year now. I use it to tighten up my Mesa Single Rectifier. It works really well for this and sounds great. It gives a bit of a different coloring than a Tubescreamer, which is most guys' choice for a tiny more saturation and compression. It does this just as good, if not better than any Tubescreamer, however again gives you a bit of a different "flavor" if you will. The RAT has Loads of gain if you need it, and they are very easy to dial in. I really like the LED being in the middle of the A, it looks really cool, and of course True Bypass straight out of the box is awesome.

Fantastic.

Comments about Pro Co You Dirty Rat Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

This is an awesome pedal for the amount you pay. It can go anywhere from a old metallica like distortion into fuzz territory and with the gain on a very low setting you can get a little bit of crunch for a good blues tone. Only thing I don't like is that I can't obtain any modern metal tones from this but that is most likely because I am running through a blues deluxe amp.
