ProCo Turbo Rat:
Feel the crunch and power of the distortion pedal designed to take you to new and unexplored heights. The Pro Co TurboRAT enables you to break away from the pack and drive beyond the realm of traditional distortion devices.
TurboRAT expands the versatility, sustain and unique "great RAT tone" which has made the RAT footpedal the distortion of choice for literally thousands of musicians worldwide. The maximum output of 2.8 V (P-P) is more than double that of the "Turbo's" predecessors. Special care has been taken to preserve the hard-clipping harmonic distortion of the "great RAT tone" so that there is no sacrifice of sound in achieving its tremendous output. This unit offers the same easy-to-use, smooth, variable controls for distortion amount, filter cutoff and volume level so you can preset just the right amount of overdrive, tune in on the presence--and FLY! In addition, the TurboRAT has been designed to work equally well with guitars that utilize active electronics.
The TurboRAT is housed in Pro Co's classic, virtually indestructible steel enclosure with the simple-to-use "no tools required" battery compartment. The "Turbo" offers a sloped-face construction for easy switch activation, an LED indicator light which makes the on/off status easy to see, and glow-in-the-dark graphics and knob indicators for added visibility.
For trouble-free reliability on the road, the TurboRAT is comprised of a mil-spec glass-epoxy circuit board, conductive plastic controls, a heavy-duty industrial footswitch, a non-scuff mylar overlay with luminescent graphics, and durable nonskid feet. Dare to go beyond the limits of your imagination. Kick on your TurboRAT and DRIVE!
ProCo Rat Pedals can be powered using an AC adapter with a 3.5mm (1/8") positive-center mini-plug, which we carry.

REVIEWS & USER COMMENTS:
HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW 3/18/20003:
"This is a great pedal. I love any Rat I've tried and I'm a big fan of their pedals. They are very versitile and reliable pedals and I base most of my sound on them. For the price you can't beat them. This pedal is good for garage rock and dark indie. I know Sonic Youth use this pedal. The vintage Rat gives the trebley indie sound (Blur, Elastica). This pedal is a bit darker and more emotional. I wouldn't reccommend this pedal for Nu Metal but it sounds good for alternative rock and Emo. It will definately work for early Sabbath and 80's Goth like Bauhaus. The Turbo isn't quite as versitile as the Vintage or Rat 2 but it's still fantastic. Not for everyone but try it and see because it might be for you."
HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW 6/5/2002:
"I have basicly played Punk, Blues, Rock and New wave with this pedal. It will get a edgy garage sound or a fuller british stack type tone. Between sounding great, being simple and intuitive, and never ever failing, how could it be beat? I love it."
