I want a distortion pedal fairly badly, especially since my "evil jam band" is down to a power trio with the departure of our saxophonist, and I don't have much dinero since I lost my job. Therefore, I was thinking of buying a used Rat, BRAT, or Turbo Rat and having it modified to eliminate the high-pass filter by the guy at fxdoctor.com for $10 plus shipping. He already said he'd mod my Akai Variwah to eliminate its high-pass filter, so it'd be cheaper shipping-wise to send them both in one package. Any thoughts? I know that some of you here have owned a two-digit number of distortion boxes, so your input is valued.
