Limited Edition Reissue ‘85 Whiteface RAT — List: $299.00

A Legend Returns - When we decided to reissue a RAT pedal, we all agreed that we didn’t want to just pay lip service to the term “reissue.” That’s not the way we do things at Pro Co.  Instead, we tasked ourselves with recreating the RAT – the benchmark that set the standard by which all others are measured.  

We followed exact specifications, researched and found the same components, utilized the original circuit board layout, and of course, added the essential LM308 Chip.  The result of our efforts is the Limited Edition ‘85 Whiteface RAT, a RAT pedal worthy of its heritage.

It’s all there, inside that ugly…that small, beautiful-ugly black indestructible steel box: “a sound as mellow as a vintage “twin”, or as bone-crushingly powerful as a battery of those famous English stacks – instantly, at any volume.”

From the sweet wail of the blues to the grinding raunch of the heaviest rock…the Pro Co Limited Edition ’85 Whiteface RAT delivers.  

This isn’t just a reissue of your old RAT…this IS your old RAT.

(Production run is limited.  Available as long as inventory lasts.)

Starting with the Ultimate Speaker Demo, an ever-increasing number of the GearTunes audio  clips are being tracked using the Radial JCR Reamp. The Reamp was invented by my good friend and colleague John Cuniberti who engineered/co-produced many of Joe Satriani's most infamous recordings.

For GearTunes, reamping allows me to record a track where the guitar "hears" the amp in the room, but initially only the guitar or guitar and effects signal is recorded. This allows me to spend additional time perfecting amp tones and mic placement once I have the performance I'm looking for. One of the byproducts of this process is the creation of GearTunes DI Clips which enable you to play select guitars and effects through your amp by using your mobile device or computer as a reamp device.

For GearTunes DI Clips - and Gear Tune DI Clips ONLY (always found under the DI clips tab for gear that has one), you can play our guitar and effects through your amp. Simply use an unbalanced cable that terminates with an 1/8th inch jack on one end and a 1/4 inch jack on the other. Connect the 1/8th jack to the output of your mobile device or computer and the 1/4 inch jack into the front of your amp. Start off with your amp volume at zero and your mobile device (or computer) volume all the way up to ensure you hit the front end of the amp with enough signal, and then gradually increase the volume of the clean channel on your amp until you reach a level that is not capable of causing damage to your ears or equipment. GearTunes accepts no liability for the use, abuse or misuse of these clips, and playing them into your amp is done exclusively at your own risk.

I am tremendously excited about being able to share GearTunes DI Clips with you as you journey on your quest to find right gear for the music you play! Cheers ~ Doug:)
