I’m gonna ignore the question and recommend a Rat or some other brand, because I like to show off.

Boss MZ-2 is pretty much the closest thing to a rat that Boss made. Mode I is analog distortion without all of the modulation settings.
Bought one of these recently but haven't gotten the chance to get down to our practice space and try it out. Heard that it was a good Rat substitute from a number of sources so I'm quite excited.
Honestly it's a really great pedal all around. Also you can put the drive all the way down to just get the chorus or doubling effects on there own too which makes it pretty versatile.
