Pro Co - The Rat

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by bass349, Feb 7, 2006.


  1. Hi Everyone,

    Just wondering if anybody could help me with the approx production year of my Pro Co - The Rat. I recieved it in a deal from ebay as a "sweetener" with a pile of stuff, because the guy stuffed up my shipping. It looked rather old and beat up (i gave it a good clean :) But it's still missing all it's knobs and one of the little rubber feet.

    The serial number is VR-100084.

    Don't know if anybody knows about this stuff, but worth a try :)

    hopefully these pics work..

    cheers!
    Andy

    The best way is probably to date them by the pots.
     
  4. hmm.. is that the number on the pots? i'm not sure if i can get in there to see..

    ok.. i'm in.

    the pots read: ER3977 and R1379631
