THE ONLY AUTHENTIC AND AUTHORIZED REISSUE OF THE RUSH PEPBOX FUZZ...

Rush Pepbox Fuzz 2.0, is the latest Pepbox pedal by Rush Amps. Pepbox 2.0 has the same authentic components and exact sound as their original, plus a few upgrades, making it more ideal for modern pedalboards and players... 

  • Wedge-shaped welded steel enclosure in a silver Hammerite finish... a little smaller than the original Rush Pepbox, to fit into tighter spaces.
  • White on black engraved labelling.
  • Runs off of a power supply jack. (9 volts center negative), and also runs off a 9 volt battery, like the original.
  • Front mounted input, output, and power jacks.
  • The PEP and LEVEL controls are moved to the face of the enclosure, for ease of visibility.
  • Same germanium circuit with the same original Rush Pepbox sound.
  • Warm white LED that shows when Fuzz is on, True Bypass when it is off.


From John Lennon, to Pete Townshend, to Jake E. Lee... so many legendary guitarists have owned the Rush Pepbox fuzz pedal at some point in time. And now, the only authentic and authorized Rush Pepbox fuzz has been reissued for all to enjoy!

The Rush Pepbox fuzz is one of the first wave of guitar effects pedals with the new “Fuzz” sound at the time. It was designed and built in London in 1965 by the creator Pepe Rush, owner of this registered and trademarked “Rush Pepbox”. It was used by a number of leading groups in the 60s, including The Beatles (who used it at Abbey Road, during the recording of Revolver), The Shadows, The Animals, and many others.



NO IMITATIONS...
The Rush Pepbox fuzz pedal is 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.





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

CONTROLS:

Pep: Controls the amount of fuzz in your mix.

Level: Controls the output volume of the pedal, but also changes the overall sound, EQ, compression, etc. of the sound, with very slight turns of the knob. You can then change the volume on your amp, EQ pedal, boost pedal, or however you prefer, to have so many different types of sound, ending up at the same overall volume.

Jeff Phelps, New York

“Now… about this pedal. I’m plugging a Custom Shop ’56 Stratocaster into the pedal and the pedal into a Hiwatt Custom 50 clone with a 4×12 WEM style cabinet (a la David Gilmour). I’m no slouch when it comes to British fuzz boxes, and this little guy is a gated, velcro ripping sound of lucious distortion. I love it. It has its own style, and I love that there’s history coming out of my amp with the fuzz. The insides look as great as the outside, and that attention to detail is what tops it all off. I hope you’re proud of this pedal because you certainly should be.“
Parker Denny, Indiana

“I vouch 100% for this – killer fuzz and Lucy is on her way to being a fuzz goddess in such a male dominated industry – that totally rocks!"
Macari's Ltd. - the famous London guitar and fuzz store since 1958

“I first heard of the PEP Box some years ago and wanted to try the sound for myself.
