Description

Fat BAT is our take on Ibanez FC10 Fat Cat circuit with the ability to enter Ibanez LA Metal and Fat Rat territory. We've used NOS (new old stock) NE5534 and NOS 741 operational amplifiers. You can explore different voicing selecting between 6 clipping options: red LEDs (like Turbo Rat), LA (op-amp clipping - very loud), NOS Soviet D9 Germanium diodes (similar to Your Dirty Rat), Si 1N914 diodes (same as classic Fat Cat), soft (op-amp feedback loop), Si BAT85, Fat Rat style BS170 MOSFET and Si 1N914.
