I saw a thread from yesterday about this on the gear page. Here's a quote from the site - "BREAKING 2008 NEWS! We are no longer selling new RAT pedals because of the horrible quality that we see them in. They are now made in China, and the workmanship is the worst I've ever seen. We would have to redo/replace so many things that the cost would increase by at least $45. We are working on a way to have you look at your serial number to determine if yours is one we can work on (when they were built much better). So, for the time being... No New Rat Pedals From Keeley. We are looking at ways of coming up with our own RAT style pedal. I am very excited about that! Thanks for your understanding, players!" I was considering buying a Turbo RAT, but I guess not anymore.
