1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. We are currently evaluating the "One Post Per Classified Ad" policy. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

THIS is why every bass player needs a RAT

    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...

    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.

    Lol. After THRASHING Empros since October, I've gone back to the others recently. Forgot what a great album Station is.

    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.
