Duecetone Rat Distortion, Out of the Rack and Under Your Feet!
Pro Co originally designed this unit 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 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.
