    Depends on how much money you have. :)

    The Keeley Rat or Freakshow Brown Rabbit ( 1+ ) will get you close enough.

    And for me, personally, that's quite a good thing.

    Wait a few months for the new Ooh La La manufactured Beavis Audio FKR. It will do just about anything any damn rat that has ever been will do, including the Landgraff, but without the poor component choices.

    some people say lands are just copies of other pedals with a high price.

    I wouldn't know cause i have seen many players praising them, not that i have heard one of those players to know at what level they are, so just try to find a place where you can ab them and buy the one that you like more.

    Well, I had the FKRII and I much prefer my Mo'D. The FKR has a few really nice sweet spots, but the MO'D sounds better at its best spots and is very useable throughout the whole range.
    I sold my FKR shortly after getting my Mo'D.

    For me - Nothing has even come close to the Mo'D..... It's just perfect IMHO.

    we did a shootout the other day with mo'd and keeley and rabbit. They all have something good goin on. To me I think the mo'd is fuller,fatter but a little fuzzier. The keeley and freakshowsound tighter,not as full,but less fuzz. But if you spend time you can come close to dialin them into soundingvery similar. just my report. love them all. but everyones ears are different.

    Is the Landgraff fuller/fatter than the Keeley in 'Phat Rat' mode?

    It's nice to hear somebody say they at least compare favorably. I love my Keeley Rat and I'd really love to try the Landgraff, but I cannot bring myself to spend the money.

    To me the MO'D is still the champ but at a price. The others are excellent too and will save you $$$$$

    Alrighty, I got myself a Mo'D. It's nice, but I can't find a sound in it that I can't duplicate almost exactly with my Keeley Rat. I'm not going to go through how they compare mode for mode, but in general they have slightly different midrange humps, the Keeley's being a bit lower. I also think the Keeley has a little more low end. The clipping is slightly different too. The Mo'D has a touch more bite and the Keeley is a little smoother. These differences are very subtle though.

    One big difference is the tone control on the Mo'D works much better than the Keeley's. The Keeley has the typical Rat filter control that has a tiny sweet spot. The Mo'D's tone control has a much broader, smoother sweep.

    I'm not trying to slam the Mo'D here, I like it every bit as much as the Keeley, and that's my point. Given the choice I'd go for the Keeley (or any other Rat clone w/3-way) and save some money. I can't believe anyone could A/B these two pedals and say one is better than the other by anything but a slight margin.

    But the Mo'd looks a heck of a lot better than that other big black box. Isn't that worth a few hundred itself? :D

    Aside from the tone question, that Beavis version has WAY too many switches and knobs for my taste.
