sounds like a boosted ada.

isn't a rat more of a distortion pedal than an overdrive?

As far as I know, yeah.  I was never a fan of distortion/od pedals and have rarely had the need to use them unless I was playing through someone else's rig.  I think I played one through an old Plexi once? :dunno:
I came of age in an era where high gain heads (Engl, Mesa, 5150) were commonplace, so I thought it kind of redundant to have any pedals on top of that.  I play with another guitar player, so my stock MP1 usually gives me what I need.  I can see why Lynch would want to use the Rat to boost since he likes a little more "hair" in his sound.  When I saw him last year he was playing a borrowed JMP with a distortion pedal.  It was...bright.

Most O.D. pedals have a tone control that just doesn't work for me. Tone 100% and the bass and mids suffer. Tone 70% and the high end suffers. Now it needs an equalizer to rebalance. I have yet to find one that doesn't mess with the tone.

I tryed to boost the ADA with a boss DS-1 and it sounded like crap.

The rat can work as a booster, overdrive, distortion and fuzz. That's an awesome pedal :). Also, the filter control do not work like standard dist and od pedal... When you turn it clockwise, treble gets rolled off.

Chamal, dumb question; did you place the Tube Driver before, or after your MP1?  I got an ART SGE Mach II coming in the mail and I was going to mess around with its analogue distortion, but I wasn't sure where to put it in the chain since it's primarily going to be used for pitch shifting and MAYBE a boost.
