Complete with an NOS LM308 chip, this pedal recreates the sound of a vintage ProCo RAT. The “vintage/turbo” toggle switch allows you to go from the smother clipping of the vintage big box version to the ruder, more in-your‐face clipping of the turbo version.
As with all EQ’d Vintage Series pedals, the American Distortion features a powerful 3‐band EQ with a sweepable or parametric midrange. The concentric knobs keep everything compact, yet easy to use. The soft-‐touch relay switching system offers reliable pop-free true bypass switching. The through‐hole (not surface mount) PCB is assembled entirely by hand right here in our shop in Richland, WA.
