Bat Cold War

Classic distortion tones and extensive flexibility


Only 2 left in stock. Grab yours until it sells.


BAT Cold War is our take on the classic Rat circuit with the ability to select different op-amp chips and six clipping options. For this version, we've used NOS (new old stock) LM308, and NOS Soviet UD1408 from 80th (Soviet reverse-engineered LM308 clone) operational amplifiers. You can explore different Rat voicing by selecting between 6 clipping options: boost (op-amp clipping - very loud), soft (op-amp feedback loop) BS170 MOSFETs (crunchy tones), soft NOS AAP-153 Germanium diodes (perfect for Bass), hard Silicon 1N914 diodes (same as classic Rat), red LEDs (like Turbo Rat), and NOS Soviet D9 Germanium diodes (similar to Your Dirty Rat).


  • Distortion - the amount of drive.
  • Filter - controls treble frequency response.
  • Volume - effect output level.
  • Op-Amp switch - a selection of two chips: West (LM308) and East (UD1408).
  • Mode switch - 6 clipping modes selection: Boost, Soft MOSFET, Soft Ge, Hard Si, Hard LED, and Hard Ge.
  • Fat switch - allows selecting bass level from 3 options: Stock (classic Rat), Fat (more low-end), and Low (a lot of bass).
  • LED brightness trimmer - placed on the PCB trimmer allows you to adjust the status LED brightness.
