ProCo Turbo Rat Distortion Pedal

Available To Order

Feel the crunch and power of the distortion pedal designed to take you to new and unexplored heights. The Pro Co TurboRAT enables you to break away from the pack and drive beyond the realm of traditional distortion devices.

TurboRAT expands the versatility, sustain and unique "great RAT tone" which has made the RAT footpedal the distortion of choice for literally thousands of musicians worldwide. The maximum output of 2.8 V (P-P) is more than double that of the "Turbo's" predecessors. Special care has been taken to preserve the hard-clipping harmonic distortion of the "great RAT tone" so that there is no sacrifice of sound in achieving its tremendous output.

This unit offers the same easy-to-use, smooth, variable controls for distortion amount, filter cutoff and volume level so you can preset just the right amount of overdrive, tune in on the presence--and FLY! In addition, the TurboRAT has been designed to work equally well with guitars that utilize active electronics.

The TurboRAT is housed in Pro Co's classic, virtually indestructible steel enclosure with the simple-to-use "no tools required" battery compartment. The "Turbo" offers a sloped-face construction for easy switch activation, an LED indicator light which makes the on/off status easy to see, and glow-in-the-dark graphics and knob indicators for added visibility.

For trouble-free reliability on the road, the TurboRAT is comprised of a mil-spec glass-epoxy circuit board, conductive plastic controls, a heavy-duty industrial footswitch, a non-scuff mylar overlay with luminescent graphics, and durable nonskid feet. For 120 VAC operation a special jack is provided which accommodates the Pro Co RPS-1 power supply (sold separately).

Dare to go beyond the limits of your imagination. Kick on your TurboRAT and DRIVE!

Are you the type of musician who hears the beauty in a dissonant chord? Does feedback sound like violins to your ear? The Turbo RAT distortion pedal is for the guitarist who would rather create their own sound than emulate someone else's. Tear the system down and build it back up yourself!

Boasting more than twice the maximum output of the original RAT, the Turbo RAT is hard-clipping while the mid-range frequencies are slightly scooped. With a less compressed signal, it also has a brighter tone, so you'll have no trouble being heard through the mix. Since this pedal was designed around the musical distortion that made the RAT famous, it retains these qualities without sounding harsh.

The Turbo RAT features 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.
