What do you think of it? I'm once again shifting things around on my board and I'm wondering if this would be worth a try.
Thanks for the input. Think it's worth shelling out the bones for, or are there better options in the same camp?
I've spent a lot of time studying out/buying and trying dirt pedals the last few years, but the RAT has been one I've really not paid any attention to, so I'm easily stupid on my RAT info lol.
Yeah, almost 200 is quite a bit for a dirt pedal looking at my wishlist right now. I've got a Jetter GSR and KR Gypsy Fuzz, and have been through an OCD (loved it, but it felt redundant with my Marshall) Crunchbox, Sole Pressure, Big Muff, Fuzz Factory, Foxey Fuzz, NKT Sunface, and I can't even remember what else at this point ha. I generally set my drive sound up just past break up, and I'm thinking I might like to try a distortion pedal out on my board to contrast that, ya know? Thanks for the suggestions!
I'm not saying that $200 is out of line for a dirt pedal, just that for one as simple as the Rat, a basic clone with premium components makes it overpriced.
But most RAT clones sound pretty much the same, which is why if you are looking for the classic tone, you can go lower than $150 and still get it.
The video clip of Monte Allums' OD308 pedal (kit only, $105) on his site sounds great. And you gotta love the cameo appearance by a family member in the middle of it. I bet if he offered a pre-built version at $139 or $149 he'd be getting more attention here. No affiliation, just thought it's worth a look.
