The Oneder Effects Red Ryder is a RAT-inspired, made-in-Michigan distortion pedal with a few tricks up its sleeve.
Hosting the LM308 chip found in the vintage RAT pedals, its compact case sports a series of controls that allow expanding the venerable distortion’s tone in various ways.
The pedal has a more amp-like sound than the original RAT, and features two clipping modes selectable via the toggle switch: stock Asymmetrical Silicon diode (up position) and the louder and crunchier LED diode clipping (down position).
The two smaller knobs control the Wet/Dry Blend of clean and distorted signal and the Pre-Gain Low End. More info can be found in the manual!
