Rush Amps Pepbox

SGD $575.00

I would like to introduce you to the only authentic and authorised 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 hands engraved panels, using a 9v battery, we have gone to extraordinary lengths to ensure that this reissue is as close to the originals as possible.

Unfortunately, Pepe Rush passed away in late 2018 but Lucy Rush, the daughter of Pepe Rush, is carrying on building them. She had been working with her father for a number of years and wanted to carry on with the work they did together to keep his legacy alive.
