Overview

This Rat is downright filthy.

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.
