I just received a quick email letting me know that there is a sale on the Pro Co RAT2 distortion. This is now on sale at Amazon for $67.49 and ships with FREE super saver shipping. Also it is available for the same price at Musician’s Friend (which also comes with free shipping in the lower 48). This is 50% of manufacturer’s suggested retail price. Not bad.
Here are the details on the Pro C o RAT2:
Pro Co Rat2 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 decad’s most influential bands. The beauty of the RAT2 lies in its versatility. Used as a primary distortion, it excels at arena rock rhythm and soaring leads. Do you have an amp with too much headroom for the gig? The RAT2 nails that sweet spot where a tube amp goes from sparkly to clean, to warm overdrive. 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. distortion and Volume controls dial in the perfect amount of gain while keeping the level consistent with your clean tone. The Pro Co Rat2 is backed by our “any excuse even abuse” lifetime warranty.
