Well, I have been "auditioning" pedal for my high gain slot that my Rat2 currently occupies. I am a big Rat fan (for decades now) but I am not paying stupid money for an old one and the Rat2 does not have the same drive curve as either of my old ones in the 90's. I am not bonding with anything but the Rat in that slot. The Rat is a very versatile OD/Dist/Fuzzish pedal but the Rat2 only gets 'close' in the higher gain settings while the lower gain settings, ain't nothing close. Being the tightwad I am, I found a used Chicago Stompworks Mr. Vermin for $50 bucks. Its supposed to be like the 80's Rats. We'll see.. Anybody got one?
