ACT Entertainment, manufacturer and distributor of music and live performance equipment, will feature its Lil’ RAT distortion pedal at the 2023 NAMM Show (Booth 11514). At just two inches wide, the Lil’ RAT is a compact version of the company’s classic RAT pedal, complete with matching controls and tonal quality. Since its launch, the Lil’ RAT has caught the attention of a wide array of musicians, including Zakk DeBono, frontman for Denver-based blues/rock band, The Broken Circle.
“I have tried virtually every distortion pedal on the market and nothing comes close to the Lil’ RAT,” says DeBono. “After I tried it once, I was hooked for life. You not only get the biggest sound, it’s also so little and easy to use. The Lil’ RAT feels like it is my heart and soul when I’m on stage and touring, I would be lost without it. I think it is the best pedal ever created.”
A versatile pedal that can be used as a primary distortion, the Lil’ RAT is especially powerful with arena rock rhythm tones and soaring leads. The pedal can also be used as a boost for solo performances even if a user already has a powerful amp.
With its compact size, the Lil’ RAT conserves priceless pedalboard real estate while also providing full-sized RAT pedal tones, attack and sustain. “The RAT Distortion Pedal has long been renowned by guitarists around the globe,” says Dale Williams, President, ACT Entertainment. “Our goal is to offer our customers the latest gear and solutions to empower and enhance their creative endeavors in the live music arena, and we feel the powerful presence of the Lil’ RAT does just that, for any genre of music. We look forward to sharing it with NAMM attendees.”
The Lil’ RAT has a suggested retail price of $119.99 USD and is available now.
