JAM pedals’ unabashed distortion monster.
We pulled out all the stops to make sure the Rattler will get you all the amazing tones of great early 80s ProCo RAT® distortion boxes and put in the time and R&D to make it more responsive to picking and fretting nuances resulting in an open, dynamic, overdriven tube-amp feel!
Its asymmetrical clipping circuit, carbon comp resistors and of course the legendary NOS LM308N chip, the featured star of this design, are the main ingredients of a great recipe resulting in the Rattler shining through any rig, whether modern or vintage.

ARTISTS USING THE RATTLER:
Nels Cline, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Robert Randolph, Julien Kasper
“I am particularly fond of the Rattler, as I have been on the prowl for toneful yet high-gain distortion. There are plenty of fuzzboxes out there these days (and JAM has some good ones, too) but few distortion boxes. The Rattler has that fat, creamy sound/sustain yet doesn’t have to be turned up all the way step out when full-on raging is required!” Nels Cline
“Its wide range of harmonically- rich distortion tones, combined with dynamic responsiveness, make it a great asset for anyone’s pedalboard.” GUITARIST magazine
“Where this pedal really stands out is in its amp-like responsiveness and superlative tone. The Rattler doesn’t have a bad sound in it” TONEPORT magazine
