Help dating my ProCo Turbo Rat.

A few weeks ago I acquired a ProCo Turbo Rat. I would like to know exactly how old it is. I think the Turbo Rat has been produced since 1987. The pedal has a sticker with the serial number TR-105277 and says Made In U.S.A. on it. Any info would be appreciated! Thank you!

We don't do these kinda requests here. I suggest you go to eHarmony, I'm sure are plenty of folks with you'r exact needs.

Just email Pro Co from their site. I'm sure they could answer you.

Re: Help dating my ProCo Turbo Rat.

So...
•I don't have an eHarmony account, AND...
•I'm not into women, only pedals and other assorted pieces of gear.

So I guess I should just email them.

And don't worry, I am kidding about that second bullet

Re: Help dating my ProCo Turbo Rat.

I feel kind of stupid. When fwd0120 said eHarmony I got it mixed up with Harmony Central. I would have gone to eHarmony looking to ask a guitar related question only to find a dating site. LOL

I just checked the OP, it's the OP07. Now I'm thinking about modding it with a LM308N. I still think it's a good sounding pedal with the OP07 though.
