The most intense pedal in the RAT family, this has nearly twice the output of the original RAT on which it is based. With a hard clipping circuit, with slightly scooped mid-range frequencies it is famous for its powerful, but not harsh distortion, making it popular in the post-punk/indie rock movement of the last twenty years. The three knobs allow control over your sound, and its volume and distortion. The legendary RAT Filter control rolls off brittle high-end frequencies for a creamy tone, or if turned down allows the guitar to really cut through the mix. True bypass switching makes sure that there is no coloration of your sound when the pedal is off.
