Is this mod enough to solve the low-end loss caused by the pedal?
I did this to mine and I really like the tone I get. It cuts a lot of the high end zing and chainsaw like quality out. I notice that I have oodles more low end afterward. I was actually looking into buying another pedal before I did this but I love this little distortion pedal now. If you are worried about not being able to go back, I've seen several folks wire it to a switch.
Actually, now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure ProCo will replace the pedal for just about anything that happens to it. Risk = Low
I added a switch to my (selfbuilt) Rat to switch that mod in and out. It does sound differentely and is worth a shot imo, still you won't have the same "Rat-character" (less mids and highs, more bass) as before.
Which Rat model do you have? Rat 2, Turbo, vintage with LM308...?
Its a new version of the Rat so I suppose it is a Rat 2. The led is behind the Rat lettering on the top of the case if that helps.
I had a Rat 2 with the lm308 and the Ruetz mod done to it. I wasn't a huge fan, it had more bass but it was kinda muddy sounding and didn't have the same character as a normal rat.
Fxdoctor.com does an awesome "bass adjust" mod to rats for cheap. It works really well, I have that mod done on one of my many rats I've owned and it's still one of my favorites after many have come and gone.
