Featuring an LED display, traditional RAT filter control for nuanced brightness control and double the output of a traditional RAT with 2.8V, the Turbo Rat is the most intense distortion in the RAT family. Designed to slice through a mix when you really want your playing present, this is a natural fit for any metal genre, but also functions well in post-punk and indie rock.
