    I have a Lovekraft Chupacabra that I really like alot!

    I have heard through the grapevine that the M'OD and the Chupacabra are very close soundwise.

    Is this in fact the case?

    AFAIK - they are both based on the "Rat" and have a 3-way clipping switch. I've never personally heard the Chupa - but I own the Mo'D - and it's the shizzle!

    To me the Chupa was tweaked too much and didn't have all the Rat qualities to it that I liked. It was too smooth.

    Note sure, I've just had the Rat2, Keeley Rat and Chupa. The Chupa was not Ratty enough for me. And the Chupa is supposedly a copy of the M'OD. Look for some clips of the MO'D. I'll prolly try a Brown Rabbit next.

    My Duectone Rat has more grit/noise/gain than my Chupa, which is a bit smoother and more transparent...that being said the Deuctone is gonn depart and the Chupa is gonna stay!

    I wouldn't call it grit. It's hair or fuzz.
