JHS ProCo RAT2 Pack Rat

Actually I got this pedal several months ago, but I never had the chance to record a demo!!

HOW IT LOOKS

Basically it’s identical to the current ProCo Rat 2, but JHS added a switch toggle and changed the knobs (these are much better imho)

HOW IT SOUNDS

The toggle switch gives you 3 clipping features:
we give you three clipping gain options (DOWN=vintage Si, MIDDLE=open boost, UP=LED turbo RAT)

  • LEFT: Vintage Silicon. The Vintage mode is really awesome with that unmistakable character.
  • MIDDLE: Open Boost. This mode has a really incredible volume, although the pedal is really quiet!!
  • RIGHT: LED turbo RAT. This mode provides an incredible distortion with a typical aggressive tone

It’s a really good choice and it sounds good on smaller amps and transistor too!

POWER

JHS replaced the power plug with a standard 9V DC center-negative plug (Boss type).
It has also the battery clip, but it’s reachable by opening a little door on the back (1 screw).

SETTINGS

Here’s the settings I used for the demo (click to zoom)


DID YOU KNOW?

The JHS Proco Rat is phosphorescent!!
