I'll preface this by saying that I never thought I would find myself loving Rats. I tried a Rat2 when I was a kid first picking up a guitar and ran it through some POS amp, and I absolutely hated it. That fuzzy distortion tone completely overwhelmed the speaker, and I was out. Fast forward over a decade, and I've gotten to try the Rat again through digital emulations. I've been blown away. Now I know I have to have a physical unit for my board, but I'm not sure what I should go with. I'm looking to use it for a gained out lead tone. The Rat alone gets me about 90% of the way to my 'ideal tone' and boosting with a TS gets me about 95% of the way there. I'm looking for just a little less fizz in the highs while still getting that same level of distortion and compression. I was wondering if any of the other rat variants would do the lead thing better than the 'normal' silicon circuits. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
