Randale Pedale‘s Blackout is a RAT-inspired distortion featuring a “Baxandall bass and treble control to choose from a wide range of mid-rangey or modern and edgy scooped sounds” and a “the toggle switch gives you three different distortion characteristics on electric guitar & bass.”
Perfect for RAT lovers looking for a more flexible distortion that can replicate the classic but also fine tune it.

Born in 1978 in Kalamazoo with a LM308 at its core this classic fuzztortion became witness to the hair-metal invasion as a youngster,survived a decade of grunge in the 90´s just after being sonically abused by many noise-rock and punk bands during its adulthood.
Nevertheless there is a love/hate relationship for many musicians between them and this electric animal. You got a disease spreading rodent on one hand but a endangered species on the other.
Where to go from here?! RANDALE PEDALE are clear about it: Let´s rip rock´n´roll a 2nd butthole of epic proportions!
