    For those who've noticed my new signature, here is the full poem. Came up with this yesterday. Gotta love those Rats! Happy Tone Hunting, Rod.

    Three EL-84s for the Elven-kings under the sky,
    6L6s for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
    12AX7s for Mortal Men doomed to die,
    EL-34 for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
    In the Land of MoreTubes where the overtones lie.

    One RAT to rule them all, One RAT to find them,
    One RAT to distort them all and in the darkness overdrive them
    In the Land of MoreTubes where the overtones lie.

    You have combined two of my favorite geekdoms. Thank you. I am happy. I will diminish and go into the West.

    "And for you, chesire, I give you the light of the LM308 , our most beloved op-amp. May it be a tone to you in dark places when all other pedals go out."

    :cool:

    Thank you RTR. You've proven that even the smallest diode can change the course of the future.

    There is only one Lord of the Rat, only one who can bend it to his will. And he does not share power tubes

    See TDPRI needs one of them 'like' buttons haha.. Maybe the Rat will figure prominently if they ever make The Silmarillion into a movie.. Im sure Morgoth used one during the creation of Arda!!
