    EDIT: I was under the impression this was a JHS All American or possibly a clone of the JHS. Also to add additional info and pic of the guts.

    Aion Helios PCB RAT clone - $45

    This is a killer hand-wired RAT clone in great condition with a metal can LM308 IC.

    In addition to the 3 typical RAT controls, it includes a sweep knob to control the feel of the gain, an internal Softness trim pot, and a 3-way toggle switch for extra clipping options:
    - LED crunch
    - More subtle silicon grit
    - Raw, open clipping

    Add $9 for shipping in the CONUS.

    That what I've come to assume after doing some research. I didn't build it but rather acquired it in a trade.

    Edit: not the Stew Mac kit.

    I'm interested.... Not to sound stupid but how does it sound? Can it get heavy.... Scooped mids?......is the gain control have a good range? I have a Rat clone mini pedal and I like it but the tone control does not allow me to adjust the mids.... Thanks @RiverDog

    It sounds like a Rat but with many more tonal options, including a sweep knob that gives you more control over the frequencies. Honestly I haven't used it much because I have dirt pedals everywhere I look, so I'm trying to move some of them.

    I like the idea of more tonal options with a Rat. Most of them are generally pretty nasally.
