ProCo Rat 2:
Researched and designed to produce a sound that is radically different from any "distortion" you've ever heard before--a sound as mellow as a vintage "twin", or as bone-crushingly powerful as a battery of those famous English stacks--instantly, at any volume.
Smooth, continuously variable controls for distortion amount, filter cutoff and volume level let you preset just the right degree of overdrive, tune in on the presence without tinny treble, and balance the output for that perfect extra boost.
The RAT 2 is housed in Pro Co's inimitably massive steel enclosure. Top grade components like a mil-spec glass-epoxy circuit board, conductive plastic controls and the heavy-duty industrial footswitch make for trouble-free reliability on the road.
The true bypass mode utilizes passive switching of both input and output from the signal path to eliminate the loss of power and clarity often caused by other devices. The LED indicator on the RAT 2 is driven by a unique FET sensor circuit to avoid the noise of unnecessary buffer stages and preserve the great RAT sound.
The RAT 2's smooth harmonic distortion puts the extra punch in rhythm work and makes solos cut through with authority, power and effortless sustain. Distortion, sustain, fuzz, overdrive—from the sweet wail of the blues to the grinding raunch of the heaviest metal—STOMP ON A RAT!
ProCo Rat Pedals can be powered using an AC adapter with a 3.5mm (1/8") positive-center mini-plug, which we carry.

HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW 3/2/20003:
"overall, great for rock playing. Distortion is not strong and some may say slightly weak but if your into classic rock its a must have. Grunge playing such as Nirvana, Foo fighters and even muse tones can be used from it. Dont waste your money on a Boss DS1 get this its quality. So easy to use great for messing around on, and it looks cool."
HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW 2/27/2003:
"I play mostly indie/Alternative music and the Rat2 compliments the music perfectly. I've also been playing for 17 years and have tried almost every popular distortion box under the sun and the Rat2 is a definite keeper. If it was stolen or damaged I would by another one without thinking twice about it. "
