The 100% analog Solo is no one-trick pony.

Although it is housed in the same indestructible and road worthy steel enclosure that has come to be a trademark of Pro Co stomp boxes, the Solo distortion guitar effects pedal marks a departure from the RAT series of pedals in more ways than just its cosmetics. With its enormous range of tones, 3-way selectable clipping modes ("hot, melt, & burn"), and highly interactive "scoop" and "tone" controls, the Solo just might be the most versatile pedal in your arsenal.

The Pro Co Solo Distortion pedal is equally at ease in both lead and rhythm capacities, and with a wide variety of amplifiers and guitars. Capable of going from vibey, chewy, warm low gain tones, to deliciously mean and crushing high gain tones, the Pro Co Solo pedal still remains remarkably true to the sound that matters most: The sound of you and your guitar. And speaking of staying true to the sound of your guitar, true-bypass switching ensures that when the guitar pedal is off, there is no coloration of your sound.

Even in its highest gain settings, the Solo remains extremely tube-like, articulate and touch sensitive. Complex chords ring out with clarity, leads sustain with ease. Roll back your volume knob and it cleans up, just like a good tube amp would.

The Solo effects pedal uses three pairs of carefully matched (or should we say, carefully mismatched) clipping diodes to produce asymmetrical clipping. The three pairs are accessible via the "hot, melt, burn" slider switch. This has the effect of making the Solo clip very much like a tube amp going into natural power tube distortion.

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

      Comments about Pro Co Solo Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I have many Rats. Whiteface reissues, 83, 85, 86, 86, 91, and few others (turbo, etc) also clones. I like them all.

      If you want a Rat get the WF Re-issue (one of the best ever pedals).

      This Solo is a very good very controllable pedal. If you play with the tone and scoop you can come into great sounds and also out of the range of desirable as well. It gives you a LOT of range. I like it!

      Comments about Pro Co Solo Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Save your money and just buy a Proco Rat. I was hoping the Solo would expand the tonal range of the Rat.. but it wasn't even as good. The Rat does one sound really well & the Solo does 3 sounds just ok. The scoop knob was useless! I generally scoop my mids but this control is drastic and unmusical. The tone knob turns the entire signal into an ugly hiss when turned past 3 O'Clock. I actually loved the gain & volume knobs. The gain sounds good until 12 O'clock but after that it gets mushy and the treble needs to be increased to compensated for the mushiness, but the tone knobby is just not suited for this pedal.

      Awesome Pedal

      Comments about Pro Co Solo Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I bought this 3 months ago from an online store and couldn't be more pleased. Deep rich distortion. Sounds great for Cream and Sabbath, Zeppelin, Ratt, Riot,etc. Gets way heavier than that that if you need it. Works great with my Fender blues jr. Read a complaint on e bay from someone saying it's a little too much distortion. For that person, get a Bad Monkey pedal. I've been able to dial in everything from light to heavy and in between. Works great for my style of music and the battery even lasts. (Analog sounds good)
