What sounds Rat-like but is the size of a common MXR pedal?

    I have an Andoer Myomorpha Distortion, which is a micropedal Rat clone with "vintage" and "turbo" modes. As a longtime Rat player, I can tell you it does a very nice job getting the Rat sound and it costs right around twenty beans!

    Here it is compared to the Black Rat; the reviewer - and I - find the Myomorpha much more Rat-like:



    (The Eno and Andoer pedals are the same -- Just buy the one you get a better price on!)

    If you are still looking for suggestions, try the Caline Head Room. It has a toggle switch that basically makes it a Rat2, Solo and Turbo Rat all in one pedal.

    Check out Basic Audio's Shore Bird. Best Rat variant I've ever had.

    The Catalinbread is a Tone Bender with the filter of the Rat. I didn't care for it.
    Can't comment on the Retro Sonic.

    Why not just grab a new Rat, take off the feet and Velcro it down? With the top (back?) jacks they don’t really take up any more space than an MXR size pedal.

    I actualy A/B'd the Mooer and a whiteface re-issue. They were so close that I sold the ProCo.

    I bought one of these recently... it has the correct resistor value. I like it for nasty stuff, but use the Joyo Sweet Baby more for it's nice 'hair'.
