Here's my mini-review of the ENO Rat Distortion DR-1S: The rubber is off, the velcro is on! For $40, this is close enough to the classic Rat sound to keep around as a spare. Longer review: My Rat is a ca. 1992 Rat 2, Keeley Modded. I don't really have a strong sense of "before and after" with the standard Rat sound, so any differences I noticed compared to this pedal might be due more to the Keeley mod than to the actual differences from the stock Rat. That said, all comparisons are with the Keeley version of the standard Rat sound. Setting the pedal up quickly, with all the knobs in approximately the same place as on my Rat, gave me a pretty close approximation of the Rat sound. To my ears, it was a little "rougher", a little more "raspy" and less "smooth" sounding. Tweaking the knobs got it into pretty much the same ballpark as my Rat. I didn't spend a lot of time tweaking the knobs because I could get a sound that I liked without a lot of tweaking, even if it wasn't identical to the sound of my modded Rat. Same fat, distorted, compressed sound we all know and love. I've never played a Turbo Rat, but the "Turbo" option on the Eno sounded fine. A little louder and a little less distorted than the "Vintage" option. All in all, a fine pedal to my ears. Very much good enough to serve as a "second Rat" for a second pedalboard. My only reservations about using it as my primary distortion would be related to concerns about reliability and form factor more than the sound of the thing.
