Rattler Bass

What effect does a bass pedal have on your signal?

Bass pedals, like the JAM Pedal Rattler Bass, give your guitar signal an electronic effect and add an overall bass effect and character.

Several names frequently come up as a topic when it comes to overdrive and distortion pedals. Tubescreamers, Klons, and even the renowned Boss Metalzone MT-2 are simple names to drop. These pedals are worth the hype because they are enormously significant pedals that inspired other drive pedals afterwards.

The Pro Co RAT is also another pedal among the greats that have been overlooked in relation to sales. However, for many, including most of the TonePedia staff, it is one of the greatest. The JAM Pedal Rattler Bass is almost a replica of this Pro Co RAT.


The JAM Pedal Rattler Bass: A modified recreation

Like the Pro Co RAT, the JAM Pedal Rattler Bass edges on the distortion/fuzz territory with a non-smooth break-up when playing chords. This pedal sounds very amp-like, so you can hear it singing sweetly when playing lead notes on it. It makes you feel what it’s like to be a junkster position to the aforementioned gritty chords.

This pedal is the nearest one will ever get to the best RATs ever made. It shows the major constituents while taking evolution along; one of these improvements includes an LED on/off indicator.

The body of this pedal is black and white and weighs about 300g. It has a modern footswitch for two gain settings. It works on a 9V DC centre negative, 18mA power supply. The jacks of this pedal are mounted on both sides, and its dimensions are 5.6cm (Height), 7.5cm(Width), and 12cm (Depth).


Conclusion: What TonePedia thinks about this pedal

The JAM Pedal Rattler Bass is a version of the numerous, tuned for bass frequencies and features a mix control and a boost footswitch; neither feature on the standard guitar Rattler!

What’s amazing for you is we have an original first version small box RAT on TonePedia, and now we have the Rattler too. So, you can now experience both pedals side by side on our demo player.
