The Rodent Distortion is based on the first ProCo Rat, one of the most successful distortion effect pedals. Designed around the OpAmp IC, the Rodent Distortion is rich and produces a lot of harmonics, delivering everything from a powerful overdrives to a soft fuzz and every distortion tone in between. If you haven’t tried this legendary effect pedal yet, don’t miss the chance! If you try the Rodent Distortion, it will definitely earn a place in your pedalboard.
To update the Proco Rat the old LM308 opamp has been replaced to the TL071 instead, that delivers better noise ratio than the original one.
The Rodent Distortion kit allows you to build the Rat, Rat 2 and Turbo Rat versions. The different diodes (n914 and leds), resistors and capacitors are supplied so you can build the ProCo Rat version you like the most!

Great kit that sounds good. Well i guess it depends what version you decide to build. I only did one of them. Easy to build and good service.
