I would like to introduce you to 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 
hands engraved panels, using a 9 v 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 his daughter Lucy 
Rush who had been working with her farther for a number of years is 
still building the RUSH PEPBOX to carry on with the work they did and 
continue his legacy.
