    Is there a RAT pedal with enhanced EQ capabilities?
    I currently own a Bondi Sick As Blackout 2015, and love the RAT section along with the active treble/bass controls. I would like to avoid having to take this rare pedal to smaller gigs though.
    Any suggestions?

    Source Audio drive pedals have a Rat model and very extensive EQ

    All of the above + VFE Alpha Dog. The Red Wolf, also by BFE, is a RAT derivative as well.

    I would just get whatever Rat pedal you like, and an MXR M108 10-band EQ (put it after the pedal). or, what I like to do - put a noise gate after the dirt pedal, and then the EQ after the gate.

    I've been a Rat user for almost a decade now. Having that filter knob is part of the Rat's personality. It's like asking an EQ on a fuzz face pedal. Just my two cents.

    +1 for an Alpha Dog.

    Resurrecting an old thread
    (thank me for not opening another Rat thread).
    Just to tell you Rat-lovers that the Matthews Effects Harbinger is one hell of a Rat clone.
    It has the magic chip inside.
    The parametric EQ is just outstanding.
    I couldn't stop playing the pedal all the afternoon.
    Goes from slightly dirty boost to full-boar distortion and everything in between.
    Sounds as good as I remember my WF Rat did.
    With more EQ options, it's just fantastic.
    Kudos to @MatthewsEffects

    Oh, and it's beautiful too. Look at this textured red...
    Top-mounted jacks and power DC, silent relay-switch.
    Act of class, sir !

    Can't wait to try it live with my band.

    Idiotbox Landphil has a pretty tweakable EQ
