    Indeed.

    The RAT loses some low end although is a pedal with a kinda flat EQ, not like other distortion boxes that boost mids, this retains some lows.

    In fact I mixed the full distortion track with the clean track with an amp/cab simulator for a "bi-amp" sound... holly mackerel!... I'll post it later. :)


    Haha...:D

    I held back and only ordered a pair of new straplocks for the Stingray.
    Must be getting old...

    My turn for a Rat in the mail today! Mine has been in training and has some extra added mischief from Kinnatone which added a clean blend, bass mod, vintage chip and 3 extra clipping mods. Gonna be a handful I think. Excited. I will take a pic next to it's other ratty mate my incredibly super awesome rat style pedal the Idiotbox Landphil.

    20201105_202714.jpg Here lol! taken a long time to get this thing close to where I want it. Rat is not beating the Landphil yet but I think it will edge it out eventually they're both very adjustable which is cool. the rat needs so much more eq help then the landphil but the blend on the rat is the biggest advantage. Such a cool pedal I'm totally obsessed with the tone from them. Cheers!

    Forgot to explain this clip:
    I recorded a clean track and a dirty track, splitting the signal using both outputs from my Boss TU-2 tuner.
    The clean one is my Streamer into a Demeter OptoCompulator compressor. The dirty one is the bass into the RAT.

    Then each signal into a M-Audio Fast Track multichannel interface, into Cubase, EQ and mixed to taste. :cool:
