Have you tried a new battery? A Rat with a weak battery tends to compress the initial attack down to almost nothing at high gain settings.

Light pick attack is ok but med to
heavy attack causes cutting out especially
on the low strings.

Sounds like you're overloading the input of your rat. Do you have any pedals in front of it? or do you have a built in preamp in your guitar? Real hot or active pickups? A booster or anything?

If all else fails, it could be the op-amp. I've never seen this problem with a RAT before, but I've had an MXR pedals do the same thing. It's a long shot though!

I use guitar-rat-hiwatt100.
Dimarzio super-distortion is in one
guitar which probably pushes the rat,
but my other guitar is an old gibson with
soapbars. Same results.
I'll try to track down another op-amp.
Can i try a different type?
Where's a schematic?

There's two different revisions; pcrat.gif and pcratb.gif
Hope this helps.
