Pro Co Deucetone Dual Rat Distortion Pedal

Take your leads to the next level with this distortion stomp box. It features 2 channels of raw distortion perfect for hard rock and metal guitarists.

The newest addition to the Rat family is the Deucetone Rat. Originally designed as the R2DU (Rat 2 Distortion Unit), a rack effect with a dual foot switch, the Deucetone Rat brings the R2DU out of the rack and onto the floor and the spirit of the R2DU lives on in two independent rat units that can be used separately or together. Selectable diodes produce a variable sonic palette utilizing the tones from the Vintage Rat, TurboRAT and two never before heard rat sounds - the Clean and Dirty rats. The Deucetone Rat has all the classic features of the 'rackrat' including two independent rat circuits, providing true stereo capability or the ability to cascade one side into the other for best bonecrushing rat sound yet. The Deucetone Rat is housed in a new compact sloped-face pedal-only design. New triple-pole foot switches have been added for greater reliability and the switches have been strategically placed to allow for easy stomping of both channels simultaneously. Like the rest of the rat family, the Deucetone Rat is housed in an indestructible steel enclosure that will provide years of on-the-road reliability.

The Deucetone Rat offers two channels of raw distortion providing the ability to change, on the fly, between three different settings per side - that is six rats in one. The germanium diodes that drive the dirty rat give this rat by far, the most incredible sound ever.

What makes this pedal so powerful is the ability of the guitarist to run both channels independently read more of one another or in a cascade mode to deliver a combination of the two rats.

From a double dose of vintage rats to a dirty rat/clean boost combination, you are sure to find the perfect sound to take that great guitar lead to the next level. If you are like a lot of guitarists today, you are probably rethinking your rackmount effects and are heading back to floor units. The Deucetone Rat will bring your multi-distortion needs back to ground level while taking the sound of your rig to new heights. It is the most incredible stompbox on the planet.

Heavy-duty industrial components like the footswitches, make for trouble-free reliability on the road.

I haven't road tested a lot of distortion/overdrive/fuzz pedals (because most of them are junk IMHO), but have "tried" scores of them. This Deucetone Rat is the best sounding/built/designed(2pedals in one with 3 different Rats switchable into each pedal). They say it's like owning two RAT pedals, but with each side having 3 switchable RAT sounds built in, it's like having all 4 RAT pedals at your disposal with any two available at the same time (RAT 2, Dirty RAT, Turbo RAT, and the Clean RAT -exclusive to the Deucetone RAT). Simply Amazing. Any kind of distortion you want, from warm tube overdrive, 70's crunch, dirty grunge, etc.... The adjectives are endless and so are the sounds from this pedal

Features? Well how about 2 pedals in one, with 3 switchable RAT sounds in each (5 in all). Run them independently, in stereo, or cascade them together for endless possibilities.

Ease of Use
This pedal is easy as pie to use right out of the box, but as others have warned, take your time with this beauty and explore the wealth of sounds it has to offer. there may be too many..... not necessarily a bad thing..... in this day of programmable everything, it sure is refreshing to turn a real nice pot (smooth and durable) and hear in real time what changes you are making. You can keep your line 6 PODs folks...

Built Like A Tank, there are read more even very nice durable quality jacks, pots, and stomp switches. It's all exceptional. Hand built & assembled in the good ol' USA

Considering what they charge for some of the botique garbage out there, this is a steal......
