The Proco Sound Rat Solo is a distortion pedal that is designed for electric guitar and has standard 1/4 inch connections.  It can be powered by a nine volt power supply or battery and isn't rack mountable as it is a stomp box.


The make up of the Proco Sound Rat Solo is extremely easy to follow as there really isn't anything out of the ordinary here.  The pedal has knobs for distortion, scoop, tone, and volume and has a switch that has modes for hot, melt, or burn.  There isn't anything to the pedal other than this and I found that it didn't take too long for me to have a full grasp of the entire pedal, so for this reason I don't believe that a manual is needed.


The sound quality of the Proco Sound Rat Solo is mediocre in my opinion.  I think they designed the pedal for solos as the name states and is probably best suited for lead parts rather than rhythm ones.  I have used the pedal two or three times with my Fender Strat and '76 Twin Reverb, so I'm getting an accurate read on what this pedal actually sounds like.  While I haven't been too impressed with the pedal, it doesn't have that bad of a sound overall I just don't think that it is up to par with most of the distortion pedals that I use out there.  I usually like the pedals that Proco Sound put out there, but this is an exception to that.


I've only used the Proco Sound Rat Solo a few times in the last year or so and I don't think that I will be using it again anytime soon as I'm just not a big fan of the way that it sounds.  It is probably a bit over priced as well and I would recommend just sticking with the original and vintage Rat pedals over this one as it will cost less and in my opinion will sound a lot better.  All in all, the Proco Sound Rat Solo pedal is a mediocre pedal in my opinion.
