Effects: Fuzz, Pepbox

This is the only authentic and authorised reissue of the legendary RUSH PEPBOX
One of the first wave of guitar effects pedals with the new “Fuzz” sound, designed and built in London in 1965 by the creator Pepe Rush, owner of the Registered Trademark “RUSH PEPBOX™ “. The RUSH PEPBOX™ was used by a number of leading groups in the 60’s including The Beatles (who used one at Abbey Road during the recording of Revolver) The Shadows, The Animals and others.
It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Built on a copy of the original printed circuit board using rare NOS (new old stock) germanium transistors, some of which are over 40 years old, to capture the unique original sound, and housed in a faithful recreation of the original wedge shaped welded steel enclosure with hand engraved panels, using a 9v battery, we have gone to extraordinary lengths to ensure that this reissue is as close to the original as possible.

Unfortunately Pepe Rush passed away in late 2018, but his daughter, Lucy Rush, continues to build them, she had been working with her father for a number of years and wants to carry on with the work they did together to keep his name and his amazing work alive.
