This is the most classic sounding of all Rat distortion pedals. Think ’60s garage rock. Think early punk. Think about the bands that changed the sound of rock ‘n’ roll. The key to the You Dirty Rat tone is in its germanium clipping diodes. Any pedal aficionado will tell you that nothing compares to the warm tone that these sought after components provide. This pedal is the perfect middle ground between distortion and fuzz, combining the characteristic cutting Rat tone with the warmth of a classic fuzz-tone. The You Dirty Rat also provides 3 dB more compression than the original Rat. This not only provides more “tube amp warmth,” but adds extra sustain.
