1 BirdsNBats 3 weeks ago I just took possession of an '88 "woodshed" RAT (LM308) and I have to say, it sounds amazing, especially with my Gretsch's. The hard-clipping is the ticket, Maybe that's why I love treble boosters so much too. So many newer distortions are just too mushy to my ears, with too many mids and fuzzes are hard for me to bond with. The crunch and sustain with the RAT are perfect - glassy leads, killer rhythm and the right amount of volume *why do builders give their pedals such ridiculous amounts of volume? 1:00-2:00 is unity on the RAT.Anyway, just wanted to share my findings with this old treasure.I took a gamble on it, based on the "Black-Tail" patch on my XTOMP. The XTOMP in a side by side comparison really nails it.
