JAM Pedals Rattler Limited Distortion Pedal

No longer available at zZounds
For gain that goes from smooth to brash, the Rattler is JAM's take on an old favorite. New-old-stock LM308AH chips give this analog tone machine its sound.

The JAM pedals unabashed distortion monster.

As our stock of the extremely rare NOS LM308AH can- version chips is gradually depleting, we are proud to re-introduce it, celebrating its uniqueness and scarcity with point-to-point wiring, housed in a luxurious leather enclosure.

Made with carbon-comp resistors and tropical fish capacitors for those who seek that original vintage distortion sound, but with modern clarity and response, the Rattler ltd. is equally incredible with single coils as it is with humbuckers, yielding great, full-range sounds, from sweet overdrive to massive, singing distortion!

Owing its core sound to the NOS LM308AH can-version chip, the Rattler ltd. features a symmetrical clipping circuit. Its tone is smoother and a touch less hairy than the standard Rattler with the toggle-switch alternating to a lower gain-stage, giving the pedal a more open overdrive-like character, allowing you to explore less compressed and more harmonically rich textures.

Yes, it’s a bit expensive but the tones you pull out of this pedal justify the cost. And that leather covering is just the icing on the cake. I have a 2006 Fender Pro Tube Twin loaded with a pair of Jensen AlNiCo Blackbirds that I’ve been using the Rattler Ltd. with and with this pedal I can go from that classic Fender clean into the low gain side of the pedal and go from blues to classic rock like a dream, and I can also use it stacked with the gain channel and get some solid hard rock tones. But the high gain side of the pedal takes things to a whole new level and gives me that 90’s grunge tone in spades, and then just goes into this incredibly articulate and saturated fuzz that gives the stoner/doom thing. The control knobs are very sensitive and just the slightest adjustment makes a considerable difference which gives you an extremely versatile pedal. This is my third pedal from Jam Pedals and all have been top notch in tone and build quality. I was definitely on the fence about paying $420 for a distortion pedal without hearing it in person first, but I decided to go for it and I do not regret this purchase in the least.
