Love Young Widows! Let's not forget Brian Cook's usage:

Bless you sir! Bless you!
Man... I'm a fan of These Arms Are Snakes, but have never really had a desire to own a RAT. I'm diggin' that Young Widows video too. May have to look into one finally...
Get one man...get one to melt your neighbors faces off!
Of course if you guys dig Cook and Thieneman's Rat tones, we all know which talkbasser to hit up.
Haha I'm leaning that way!
I have a Dark Driving, so I've got a good idea.
but I'd like to know
Those two guys are the reason I got a Fuzzrocious Rat Tail. Hands down my favourite pedal.
Been listening to Young Widows' 'Settle Down City' quite abit lately.
Russian Circles.. daily.
I really can't remember the last thing I intentionally listened to that wasn't Russian Circles. Brian is a beast. Is he on TB?
Too bad every bass player can't have Emperor cabs.
Any specific version of the RAT that ya'll recommend?
Lol. After THRASHING Empros since October, I've gone back to the others recently. Forgot what a great album Station is.
Anyone manage to figure out just what the heck is going on at 5:23 on "309"? Rat+OD?
No. However, he is on The Cult of Bass Distortion facebook page.
Yeah, awesome huh. Saw his reply when you posted that Mouth of the Architect vid. Great song.
Another bassist that uses a Rat(a vintage one I think) is Nick Beard from another cool band Circa Survive.
Check it:Circa Survive - Imaginary Enemy (Myspace Transmissions) - YouTube
Fuzzrocious Rat Tail is easily the most versatile version out there.
Young widows and Breather Resist (same bassist in both bands) uses a big box rat. 1990ish I believe. I got one off ebay for $100 awhile ago. It's basically the sound you hear in the video!
Oh man, Blue Sky Noise is just dripping with Ratty deliciousness. They just let it rip through the mix on that album, and so many songs just wouldn't have "it" without that distortion.
