What kind of mods were done to RATs for bass players? I've read elsewhere that stock RATs tended to lose some low end when use with basses.Not a fan of distortion with bass, and don't particularly care for the unmodded Rat, so I might be in the minority.
Excellent question. I had a buddy (haven't seen in a while) I played with for a couple of years who had a Rat that he said had been modded. Didn't ask at the time, but this was about 5-6 years ago. I think though that bottom end thing was what was augmented, but it was a while back.What kind of mods were done to RATs for bass players?

Some folks have said they prefer to use a Turbo RAT with a bass rather than one of the vintage models from the early 1980's.
I own a vintage RAT not the urbo , I use it to add punch and stress overdrives when needed, I love its classic vibe!I just bought a vintage ('81 or '83) ProCo RAT. I'm planning to use it mostly with my guitar, but I think that it was one of Krist Novoselic's favorite pedals on his bass rig when Nirvana was still tearing up the stage.
Who uses a RAT with your bass guitars?
