Proco Rat “Pack rat”
distortion / FUZZ
ALL JHS MODS HAVE BEEN DISCONTINUED AT THIS TIME
The RAT is one of the most classic and original designs in the history of effects pedals. Guitar legends and bedroom rockers have found the sound that they want from this little black box. As classic as it is, there is always room for some exceptional improvements. We start by replacing the horrible factory chip with a little discovery of our own that no one else is using in their RAT modifications. You can expect all the vibe and mojo of the old LMN308 but with less noise and a more well rounded response. This gives a real dynamic change in the pedal as well as clarity in the lower gain settings. Other improvements in the signal path are made by replacing the cheap bargain capacitors with metal film and tantalum caps, as well as a few value changes along the way for optimum bass response and smooth silky highs.
After all that’s done, we give you three clipping gain options (LEFT=vintage Si, MIDDLE=open boost, RIGHT=LED turbo RAT) with the flick of a mini toggle switch. You can get literally any sound you can think of out of this box when we’re finished. It makes a great clean boost, light overdrive, crunchy rhythm channel, heavy Marshal-ish grind, over the top fuzz and the list goes on! This is the only pedal on earth that can give you sustain for days with such clarity and character.
This is one of our favorite mods of all time!
The JHS Pedals ProCo RAT2 Pack Rat Mod takes the previous ProCo RAT distortion pedal to the next level of versatility and organic sounds. JHS has modified the original RAT2 pedal to include a higher quality microchip and improved capacitors that create a more rounded tone and organic response. JHS has also installed a 3-way toggle switch allowing you to choose from 3 different clipping modes. These modifications have made an iconic pedal even more versatile and responsive to player input, with a lower noise floor and smoother tonality. The Pack Rat Mod is JHS’s vision of what the original RAT distortion pedal should have been, and delivers classic distortion tones with a higher quality of tone and responsiveness.
