1:24 scale

The pedal chassis is a 1:24 scale model of the Batmobile, and it’s a diecast all metal affair. It should be able to handle being stomped on. Beer spillage might be a problem, though…

The tone circuit is the ProCo Rat2, with three controls that are as simple as can be: Overdrive, Level and Tone.

The pedal itself is powered via an external 9-Volt power supply. The listing states it has Headlight/Taillight LEDs and that it is true-bypass, 100% hand-wired and hand-built. But to be honest, I couldn’t care less about how this pedal is made – it’s just cool as f**k and I want one!
