Arrogance? Far from it. All of our customers are important to us, regardless of where they reside. Our facebook page is not checked daily, it is checked as time allows.

yustech - You do not checked your Facebook regularly?Why do you have an account in the first place?you are not bothered by this...Mmm that just arrogance.

My apologies that you didn't get an immediate response- had you posted that you were having a specific problem and asking for help finding a solution, someone would have most definitely responded much more quickly.

yustech - It took you 10 days to read my post?Yet you failed to see and understand the photo?How quick is quick??haha

To answer your question, the Rat2 is built in China. It is the only Rat that we don't build here, and the reason is to keep up with demand for the product, which is high.

yustech - To busy profiteering while compromising the quality result.this I hear everyday.all the best to you.

We are completely open about this fact and make no attempts to conceal it- so how are we abusing anyone's trust?

yustech - No stamp of origin at the back means not telling truth,not telling the truth amounts to lying.Liars gain no trust.

We offer the US made Whiteface Reissue Rat which has NOS LM308 and original spec CTS pots, along with the EXACT same PCB layout as the original for those who want absolute vintage authenticity. We also offer the Deucetone, Turbo, and You Dirty Rat, and Solo pedal, all of which are made in the US,

yustech - you other products are not my concern here,do not use my blog as a free ride for adverts.

and we stand behind all of our products.

yustech - Wow..you dare to standby behind this shoody PCB component assemblywork,now this I don't hear everyday.Good luck.you need it.haha


Thank You,


Pro Co Sound

yustech - you're welcome.

Part II will follow soon.

I guess you can't please everyone. The idea that we're "greedy" or "filling our pockets" is laughable at best, malicious and irrational at worst, and shows that you don't know a single one of the fine, honest, hardworking people that I work with every day, let alone our company culture.

It's not for everyone (like any piece of gear), but the Rat2 continues to be an extremely popular pedal, and is priced VERY reasonably- within reach of of the average player. There are plenty of our customers who love the current Rat2- I know this because I speak to them on a regular basis. There are other items in the line available if the Rat2 doesn't suit your needs. The Rat2 has been in its current form for the last 6 years, so your statement that we make it to increase the price of our reissue (for which the idea was formed just under 2 years ago) is simply not true. In addition to that, the OD07DP chip has been in use on Rats for over 14 years, and the small format pots for over 10.

We're not above criticism, but it seems that a calm and rational discussion, free of grandiose, irrational proclamations and personal attacks is not possible in this case. That's unfortunate, and I will not engage you in it any further. We'll just have to agree to disagree. Best of luck to you in life and with your blog.

Hey Almighty Proco, the reason so many people buy your products is because they want the sound of the original RAT (now your so called whiteface vintage reissue). It seems to me that you guys are lowering the quality of the current RATs and make a reissue at a much higher price tag. I smell a bunch of marketing bullsh*t to fill your pockets. Why should we pay more for what it should be? Wake up Proco, in case you haven't realized, your reputation globally is going down because of what you are doing to rip off customers you greedy fools. You lost my support and I'm quite sure that I'm not the only one feeling this way. I'm off to RAT clones with a price it should be.
