Brian Wampler's take on the classic RAT distortion!
The Ratsbane is Brian Wampler's interpretation of a much-loved 1980s high gain distortion pedal.
The full, dynamic range, and sheer sonic force of this classic circuit is what made it a true king among distortion pedals.
In true Wampler fashion, Brian improved the circuit's flexibility and added further gain capabilities.
Turn the distortion control all the way down for a deep but powerful gain booster.
Crank it up and you'll find rich harmonic overtones and a throaty, fuzz-like distortion.
The “secret sauce” for this circuit has always been the filter control.
Turn it counter-clockwise to cut straight through the mix. Turn it clockwise to filter the top end, for a warm, buttery, yet clear tone.
This natural full-range distortion, mixed with its unique filter control, delivers a classic cranked tube-amp sound that crosses genres and generations.
The added Gain switch offers three distinct choices.
In the middle gives you the “stock” gain for this pedal. Flick it either right or left for 2 additional turbocharged gain stages.
The Voice switch subtly alters the compression and clipping of this pedal.
It tightens the distortion to be more manageable with greater levels of gain, while rolling back some of the fuzz qualities for a modern, high gain distortion.
If you're looking for a single pedal solution with multiple degrees of gain (from light overdrive to full out saturated tones), the Ratsbane's for you!
