Ok I see it's a simple snip of a resistor to create the Reutz mod.
Yes, that’s the easiest way to do it. Most people prefer to wire in a pot there so they can control the amount of gain reduction.
I would put a switch if possible to be able to switch it back to stock.
So a pot is wired at that resistor location itself?
When playing in a band (if memory serves !) in front of my JTM45 - KOT, Klon Centaur, TS808 & Rattler, not necessarily all together !
Metal Muff Nano. I prefer the Nano to the full size model because I use an MXR 6 band eq in front of the MM.
I also have an Ibanez Mini Tube Screamer. Never really liked it but it takes to Marshall's really well.
I had a RAT I bought brand new in '87. Compared it back to back against the MM and I preferred the MM so I sold the RAT for double what I paid for it.
PM for more investment tips. HINT: Buy more Marshalls
The small box Rat MIA from the 80's are going for upwards of $700 in some areas of the planet.
On Floor Audio Tube Boost Overdrive.
On Reverb from Sweden. That figure is USD$670 not including shipping.
This thread spiked my interest in the Rat. I have one older than the one in the Reverb ad at least judging from the S/N although I hear you can't date the Rat from the number. Mine is missing the battery door.
I won't lie--the Jam Rattler made it back to my board due to this thread. It's a cool take on the circuit but adds a cock punch of bass to it. Pretty cool pedal. I bought one of those Rats new in the 80s--didn't help my Super Twin Reverb sound any more like a Marshall stack lol.
I've had this since the 80's and haven't used it much. But since I'm rocking the Slash head of late thought I'd give the Rat a revisit. I pretty much like going straight into the amp without anything in-between but never know till one tries.
I've so many pedals I haven't had the time to go through them all.
If anything using a Harmonist (HR2) in the loop with an NS-2 on the front just fiddling around.
Ooooh, I want a Slash head. Which one?
It's the 2555SL came out in 1996. I have the entire full stack with the covers. It sat in the studio for the longest time used occasionally but then decided to get it some hard use.
Finally getting the hang of the controls and the circuits.
for my non-master volume JMP I use a Boss Yellow - Super OverDrive from the 80s very smooth.
I have a TS and a Tube King but actually don't use thhem much. I like the crunch i get straight form the amp. i do throw an eq in the loop
My favorite pedal to drive my Marshall amp it the Rat. I have 12 different clipping configurations that are selectable by a 12 position switch. I usually use the Russian germanium diodes D9E for clipping.
My main od for my TSL122 is a Tumnus Deluxe set as more of a clean boost to tighten things up. It’s pretty flexible with three channels anyway. Also have an OCD and a TC Spark mini boost although they’re used more with my Orange OR-15.
I'm with you on this, but most good OD's don't need to add any crunch at all. Most every OD box I use in front of a Marshall is set Output - 80-100%, Tone - 80-100%, Gain/drive - 0 -10%. Try your TS set that way in front of that 2210--amazeballs.
Archer Ikon would rock in front of that amp too!
I will give it a whirl and see what she does
