    Default Any one using a ProCo Solo pedal ?

    Short question :

    . . . any one owns a ProCo Solo ?

    I always see a lot of very happy RAT owners, but are there any love for the (lesser known ?) Solo pedal ?
    Feel free to tell me more of about this Proco stomp box.

    I tried one years ago, IIRC it's like a more versatile Rat, cool pedal, as are all Rats. I think Ace may have one that he is currently using(?).

    Thank you very much.
    Just wish it had a 'cool' name, like something-something-RAT.
    Three-Headed Rat, perhaps ?

    I can get a used one for $60.00 (USD)

    LOL, yeah, Solo isn't as cool as Rat, but it's a much more useful pedal IMHO. For $60 I'd jump on it, if you don't like it, you can sell it to me.

    I have it and love it. Over the past 5 years I have had an original rat, a Moore clone and the Solo. Anything a rat can do a solo can do, and a lot more

    I never heard of it before. What does the Scoop knob do? And is the three way switch for different clipping options?

    The tone knob is like the filter knob on a rat

    The scoop scoops mids

    All the clipping is asymmetrical, and the output increases through the different configs.

    It's the pedal that made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs.
