Vick Audio 85 Classic Rat


Vick Audio

I had a requests for a custom pedal with an original 85 Rat awhile ago.  I was so impressed with the circuit I decided to have some PCB 's made up and offer them as part of my classic reproduction line.  This pedal has been a mainstay on my board ever since I first tried it.  This is an outstanding and versatile distortion pedal that excels at both rhythm and leads.  These reproductions use the original LM308N chips that were considered the "secret" to these vintage Rat's amazing tone.

Recently Proco has decided to reissue the '85 Whiteface Rat in a limited edition run that sold out very quickly.
