The hottest of the lot. Jam Pedals’ Rattler is more than just a few buzzes here and there, this is an earthquake of high gain tones. The Rattler is unique in its thriving, harmonically rich sustain on top of the roaring distortion. A pedal equally amazing when put to use for leads or rhythm.
Based on the legendary RAT, the Rattler improves on the original design with high quality electronics, quality voicing and superb artwork without losing the essence of its three-band controls. Finally, a distortion to sound amazing as soon as its in your signal chain.
Here's what Jam Pedals say about the Rattler Overdrive Pedal
JAM pedals’ unabashed distortion monster.
We pulled out all the stops to make sure the Rattler will get you all the amazing tones of great early 80s ProCo RAT® distortion boxes and put in the time and R&D to make it more responsive to picking and fretting nuances resulting in an open, dynamic, overdriven tube-amp feel!
Its asymmetrical clipping circuit, carbon comp resistors and of course the legendary NOS LM308N chip, the featured star of this design, are the main ingredients of a great recipe resulting in the Rattler shining through any rig, whether modern or vintage.

“I am particularly fond of the Rattler, as I have been on the prowl for toneful yet high-gain distortion. There are plenty of fuzzboxes out there these days (and JAM has some good ones, too) but few distortion boxes. The Rattler has that fat, creamy sound/sustain yet doesn’t have to be turned up all the way step out when full-on raging is required!” Nels Cline
“Its wide range of harmonically- rich distortion tones, combined with dynamic responsiveness, make it a great asset for anyone’s pedalboard.” GUITARIST magazine
“Where this pedal really stands out is in its amp-like responsiveness and superlative tone. The Rattler doesn’t have a bad sound in it” TONEPORT magazine
