The Deucetone Rat sounds really killer. Almost as good as the Fat Rat. I felt like the filter on the You Dirty Rat and Turbo Rat I had didn't seem to do much until the last tenth of the dial, yet still wasn't enough. The filter on the Deucetone Rat is very responsive and useful.

Probably an EVH 5153 1x12 combo, unless you guys can convince me to buy a Stealth head instead.

The stealth head is way cooler, has ballsier lows and isn’t a combo, therefore is the better SSO choice. But, if you have no need for a(nother) head, go for the combo! 5153s rule in pretty much every iteration.

Initially I started out wanting the Iconic but I think the 5153 is the way to go. Worse case scenario, I can always have the combo modded to Stealth spec’s if I really wanted to.

I'm seeing some fat rats on sale new and quite a few cheap used..I have a rat 2..how's the fat rat compare to it? The fat mode I'd imagine would be cool for my telecaster, not too sure what MOSFET is.

Thinking of putting my Mark IV up for trade and seeing if I can find an Engl Savage. LOVE the Mesa, but the Savage is the one that's always gotten away :lol: Ultimately, I think I plan to eventually either move to a Synergy rig or just invest more in my Fractal setup, but there's a few amps I'd just really like to check out first so I won't always be wondering if I was missing out:

• Engl Savage (1 or 2)
• Diezel Hagan
• Revv Generator 120 Mk3

I'd also kinda like to revisit the Fryette Ultralead and the Diezel VH4/2, but I think I'd be fine with the Synergy setup to try those again 🤷‍♂️

I feel like I SHOULD be completely happy with the FM3. It has them all and sounds phenomenal, but the ever falling value of it scares me. With my track record for switching gear, I'm afraid of investing fully into it and then deciding it's not for me in a few years and losing 75% of what I paid for it because it's several generations behind and no one wants it. Amps don't generally depreciate the same :p

Just ordered a Swollen Pickle. Hoping it can bridge the gap between HM2 and actual fuzz. Seen Knocked Loose and other bands on this kick.

I'd have to check on the actual unit, but if I remember correctly cranking the tone and setting the scoop and crunch all the way off does get you some chainsaw action. Not to the extent of an HM2, but a good sound nonetheless.

With that said, the Swollen Pickle is a killer pedal and super versatile. I'd recommend starting with the internal trim pots. Get them how you like and then tweak further from there.

It does. I have one and a few hm2 derivatives. The swollen pickle is great for chainsaw tones ime. It's like a tighter better hm2 when dialed in right
