ProCo Rat 2 Distortion Pedal Review

ProCo Rat 2 Distortion Pedal

Thanks to the Rock Garage for allowing me to demo this product on my channel. Check it out on their website.

ProCo Home Page

The RAT2 is the classic distortion pedal in the Pro Co RAT family. It has a unique tone structure that other effect devices are measured against. The beauty of the RAT 2 lies in its versatility. Used as a primary distortion, it excels at arena rock rhythm tones and soaring leads. Do you have a powerful amp with too much headroom for the gig? The RAT 2 nails that sweet spot where a tube amp goes from sparkly clean to warm overdrive. Maybe you already love your amp’s distortion. Use the RAT 2 as a boost for solos and get the extra kick you need.
The RAT 2 features the legendary RAT Filter control. Turn it to the right to roll off brittle high-end frequencies. Having trouble cutting through the mix? Turn the Filter down and allow the natural brightness of your instrument to shine through. The Distortion and Volume controls dial in the perfect amount of gain while keeping the level consistent with your clean tone. While there’s no mistaking the legendary RAT tone when the pedal is on, true-bypass switching ensures that when the pedal is off, there is no coloration of your sound.
Pro Co Sound also makes several other highly regarded effects including the popular TurboRAT, Deucetone RAT, and SOLO. Each effect has its own unique tone structure.

DV Mark Frank Gambale 112 Guitar Amplifier Combo

DV Mark Frank Gambale Amplifier Review

Check out the DV Mark Frank Gambale 112 Guitar Amplifier Video Demo Below

This is a decent sounding, light weight amplifier that does the clean thing very well.  Solid state power amplifiers are known for their clean tones and this does that very well.  If you’re looking for a clean channel though, I would recommend maybe checking out your options.  This amplifier is really overpriced for what you get and I can’t honestly imagine DV Mark doing very well with it at the price it’s at.  For the same price in Australia I could get a Fender Deluxe Reverb, Hot Rod Deluxe III or any other great Tube amp with loads of clean head room.

If you’re a die hard Gambale fan, you might enjoy it – otherwise I would recommend checking out your options first.

About Frank Gambale and DV Mark – Official Site

Grammy winning guitar virtuoso, Frank Gambale, exploded on the L.A. scene in the early ’80’s. His meteoric rise to fame is a testament to his passion powered playing — a style “Rolling Stone Magazine” calls “ferocious”!

Gambale is the the undisputed genius who originated the sweep picking technique and elevated it to a precise art form now standard in the guitar lexicon. The ‘Gambale Sweep Picking Technique’ continues to inspire generations of musicians. Jazz, rock, metal and prog artists alike are united in their awe of Frank as oth an amazing technician and an unsurpassed musician.

As jazz legend, Chick Corea, describes Frank ‘He is one of the most incredible guitarists on the planet. Everything he touches with his guitar turns gold — always has.’ While John McLaughlin’s tongue-in-cheek response to his finesse is ‘I’d like to cut his hands off.’

A musician’s musician, gifted composer, brilliant innovator and author of numerous instructional books and DVDs, Frank continues to reach unprecedented sonic and technical heights. His six string prowess and seemingly limitless vision point towards an exciting future of ground breaking music.

Whether Gambale is touring the world with his Fusion Jazz Trio, the Natural High Trio, his new vocal group Soulmine, or joining forces in an iconic jazz super group, Frank continues to amaze audiences around the world.

About his signature series, Frank says: “Finally! An amp that sounds exactly right—and like me, it has Italian roots! Plug in and go… awesome tone without having to search.”
