While the very best petals sound open and wide, deep and immense. Some pedals are more forgiving than others and allow you to dial in amazing tones almost any which way. Overdrives and distortions make use of very specific component transistors (silicon vs germanium, jfet vs mosfet etc.), capacitors, diodes and op amps / core processors / chips — each of which gives you a particular nuance, timbre and texture. Full mids with body that is. We worked really really hard on achieving this, and we’ve done stuff that no one has done before in a distortion pedal, doing things that are considered politically incorrect, in engineering terms. There are a number of dedicated EVH pedals out there — like the signature MXR EVH 5150 Overdrive.
Our product catalog varies by country due to manufacturer restrictions. If you change the Ship-To country, some or all of the items in your cart may not ship to the new destination. The main native variations of original ProCo Rat have overly large enclosures/cases for my liking, so I’ve gone for a smaller form factor — a DIY Kit BYOC Li’l Mouse, assembled and polished up by Johnny Balmer of Alchemy Audio. The range in the EQ is quite wide and they are very interactive, but the overall signature sound is always present. I was even able to dial up convincing UFO-era Schenker tones despite playing single-coils! All of their pedals seem to have fairly quirky names, but still offer serious tones!
You may have heard of the DiscumBOBulator, PisdiYAUwot or the ReezaFRATzitz but they’ve only just become available at Andertons! The AmpTweaker BigRock Pro also gets good reviews, as does the Decibel 11 Dirt Clod. Like I said earlier, the best current all-rounder out on release is the Elektron, but you cannot really use the Elektron properly unless you have had an education in dialing in and playing all those various different tone stages that the Elektron commands.
