    Yeah, ran the JD-9 into the rat like that. Had to keep everything dialed in pretty low on the JD-9 or the squeal factor because too much...but the Rat definitely stacks with with other drives...

    TS-9 with Rat stacked is a super solid suggestion, or Boss SD-1 with Rat will get you there too.

    If you just can't bond with the Rat that you have, try a Fulltone OCD instead in its place.

    If you had something like a Fulltone Secret Freq...you might run it into the Rat with the Freq's gain set low, since it has some mid-push about it. That is if you had something like that. ;):cool:

    Well it seems that Secret Freq likes to be traded... ;)
