    I thought we already had one... it's called "The Stomp Box". :D

    I guess I should represent: Circa 1992 Rat 2. This is the pedal I've used more than any other by a long shot. Used it at most gigs I've played on guitar over the last 20 years.

    Got the Keeley mod a few years ago but I wind up playing the 'standard' Rat sound most of the time anyway.

    I guess I can join.

    I bought one when I heard Jeff Beck used it. When it came, I plugged it in, played about 5 minutes, got a headache then put it away.

    I might take it off your hands and sell my modified one if you want to get rid of it. Is it one of the "flat face" ones or one with a slanty top?

    Slanty, I believe.

    Hm. I'll pass, then. Still, you should give it another shot. The key with Rats is to turn the filter up above 2:00.

    I'm in. I have a 86 BF I bought new, been on every gig I've played. We share the same birthday, lol.
    I recently bought a Black Secret so I can retire her to living room duty.

    I'm in with a Rat 2. It's my favorite dirt pedal. Works well with my DRRI and AC15C1.

    I have an'87 RAT that took in trade on a guitar sale. I originally planned to flip it on EBay and get my cash out, but damn it, I can't let go of this thing! It sounds amazing. :)

    Been waiting for this one. I had one in the mid '80s but wound up getting rid of my gear. I finally broke down & got a Rat2 last week. Right after I got it I started to notice alot of Rat talk on this forum. I had forgotten how delciously nasty this thing is. I had one empty space on my board to fill, I'm glad I filled it with this thing.

    '86 Rat -- probably the pedal I have owned for the longest time.

    yeah.. does seem to be the year for them, the 86 blackfaces look to be the same internally as a WFRAT, 88 Blackfaces seem to be using the PCB that would go in the RAT2 and blackfaces don't go for anywhere near the money that WFRATS do
