ACT Entertainment to Present the ProCo Lil’ RAT at ​NAMM 2022

Based on the ProCo RAT Distortion Pedal, this compact version features a familiar three-knob layout, rugged on/off footswitch and stylish “A” status LED.

ACT Entertainment, the newly formed entity of the ACT Lighting and RHC Holdings companies, will showcase its ProCo Lil’ RAT at the 2022 NAMM Show (Booth 11513). The latest distortion pedal from the company’s RAT Distortion line, the Lil’ RAT is designed with the same controls and tone as the classic RAT 2 distortion pedal, but measures just two-inches wide.

With its compact size, the Lil’ RAT adds value to users and provides full-sized RAT pedal tones, attack and sustain. Designed to offer a versatile pedal that can be used as a primary distortion, the Lil’ RAT is 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.

The Lil’ RAT has a suggested retail price of $99.00 and is available now. More info at
