Product Description

The Pro Co Rat 2 will be your go-to distortion pedal for every gig, whether it’s rock, blues, punk, or jazz. This is the classic RAT tone. The standard that all other distortion devices are measured against. Heard on thousands of recordings, it has helped define the sound of the past three decade’s most influential bands.

Pro Co Rat 2 Distortion Pedal Features

  • 100% analog signal path
  • Pro Co’s classic, virtually indestructible steel enclosure
  • Heavy-duty, industrial footswitches, knobs, and jacks
  • On/Off LED indicator
  • Sloped face for easy stomping
  • Glow in the dark graphics
  • Military-spec glass-epoxy circuit board
  • AC jack (RPS-1 power supply sold separately)
  • “No tools required” battery compartment (9 volt not included)
  • Five year limited warranty 
The beauty of the RAT 2 lies in its versatility. Used as a primary distortion, it excels at arena rock rhythm tones and soaring leads. Do you have a powerful amp with too much headroom for the gig? The RAT 2 nails that sweet spot where a tube amp goes from sparkly clean to warm overdrive. Maybe you already love your amp’s distortion. Use the RAT 2 as a boost for solos and get the extra kick you need.

The RAT 2 features the legendary the legendary RAT Filter control. Turn it to the right to roll off brittle high-end frequencies. Having trouble cutting through the mix? Turn the Filter down and allow the natural brightness of your instrument to shine through. The Distortion and Volume controls dial in the perfect amount of gain while keeping the level consistent with your clean tone. While there’s no mistaking the legendary RAT tone when the pedal is on, true bypass switching guarantees that no extra noise will creep into your signal when it’s turned off.

What is your opinion of this product?
Always loved the Rat and when I old one died I had to replace it. It's my base distortion tone. Can give you anything from creamy overdrive to early Metallic thrash. No frills. Highly recommended.

Just get the real thing!
What is your opinion of this product?
I love this pedal! It does the high gain stuff that it’s known for, but the low gain sounds are equally killer. There’s a ton of boo-teek versions out, but save some money and get the original!

A Great Distortion
What is your opinion of this product?
This is a ProCo Rat 2. You know what this is, and if you don't you probably should buy it. This is an incredible distortion pedal that every guitarist should own. Besides the pedal being amazing, it shipped extremely fast from American Musical. Their customer service is the best.

Great pedal
What is your opinion of this product?
Great pedal for a uncompressed fender kind of amp. The rat dont need many words, his action speaks for it self.
