1. BATTERY INSTALLATION: The RAT is designed to operate
from either a standard 9-volt battery or from any external
9-volt power supply. If battery operation is desired, a
high-quality alkaline type battery should be used.
To install the battery: 1) remove the thumscrew on the
bottom of the unit which holds the battery door closed. 2)
snap or slide the battery into the battery holder located on
the reverse side of the battery door. 3) match up the
positive and negative terminals to their corresponding mate
and secure the terminal. 4) Replace the battery door (Please
note that on some RATS, the battery will press against the
circuit board. This should not harm the device but, please
make sure that there is nothing else in the battery compart
ment except for one standard size 9-volt battery.) 5) Line
up the screw holes and tighten down thumb screw making
sure not to cross thread the screw.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Plugging the cable from your instrument
into the INPUT jack turns on the power from the battery. Be
sure to unplug the INPUT cable when you are finished using
the RAT; this will prevent unnecessary drain on the battery.
2. CABLE INPUTS: The input plug must be a standard 1/4”
2-conductor type cable end, such as the BF2P or RF2P phone
plugs (standard equipment on Pro Co cables). 3-conductor
(stereo) plugs WILL NOT work in the RAT.
3. POWER SUPPLIES: The jack marked “+9V” disconnects the
battery when a plug is inserted in it, thus permitting the RAT
to be powered from a line-operated power supply. This
power supply must be a negative-ground DC power source.
It should be well filtered to prevent excessive hum and
should not exceed +120VDC. The current requirements are
extremely low (about 5 mA is more then enough). A 9-volt
50 mA calculator-type power supply found at many
electronic stores should be adequate. For the best possible
performance and reliability use a Pro Co Sound RPS1 Battery
4. OPERATION: Obtaining a desirable sound is very simple
and virtually self-explanatory. Install either a 9-volt battery
or appropriate 9-volt power supply. Connect your instru
ment in the INPUT jack. Connect amplifier to the OUTPUT
on the RAT.
Set the controls on the RAT as shown in Fig. 1. Press the
footswitch to turn on the effect. This setting produces a
“bluesy”, soft-clipped distortion sound much like that of a
small tube amp. “Fine tune” the control settings to suit your
instrument’s own tone and character.
Fig. 2 is a very “biting” lead sound with lots of harmonic
emphasis; use the treble pickup on your guitar and vary the
DISTORTION control a bit to “home in” on the overtones for a
subtle fixed-”wah” effect.
The last example setting (Fig. 3) is the bone-crunching
heavy-metal sound yielding incredible power and smooth,
effortless sustain. These settings are only the beginning, of
course, and you will soon learn to “tweak” the control
settings to obtain your own sound from the RAT. If you find
a setting that you wish to share with us, log onto
www.procosound.com and post it on our RAT message
board for others to view.
