Rufus is a unique fuzz pedal designed to offer a wealth of fuzz tone effects with the dynamics and tactile response of a tube amplifier. Whether your tastes are for the historic tones created at The Fillmore East back in ‘69, or you crave the more aggressive, mid-scoped characteristics of the Grunge-era, Rufus has you covered, and then some.
Switch between Rufus’ two modes (normal and fat) in mid performance by pressing and holding the footswitch.
Designed for ultimate versatility, Rufus is equipped with a full featured 3-Band EQ that gives you the ability to easily shape Rufus’ tone without compromising the sound of your guitar or bass rig. Did we just say bass? Yes we did. Rufus is an equal opportunity fuzz pedal that plays well with guitars and basses – no need to worry about losing your bottom-end here.
Rufus employs True Bypass switching which totally removes the effect from the signal chain in our dedication to preserve your tone.
ONE PEDAL, TWO MODES
Created to enhance your overall playing experience, we developed Multi-Function Technology mf(x). mf(x) is a proprietary foot switch technology that enables you to seamlessly select between Rufus’ two distinct user modes, Normal and Fat, during a performance just by holding down it’s foot switch. Would you like to default to one mode in particular the next time you turn on Rufus? Not a problem; mf(x) has built in memory that remembers your last mode choice.
True Bypass: Rufus is true bypass via a relay. This function allows for the remote switching, and the battery monitor feature. The relay produces less popping when switching the pedal on and off.
FX Link: The FX Link connector allows the pedal’s switching function to be controlled from an external switch, pedal board, loop switcher, or any other custom interface. FX Link also provides the ability to power up in the On/Off state.
Low Battery Monitor: Rufus incorporates a unique battery monitor that alerts the user to low battery conditions. In addition, the battery monitor will automatically switch the pedal to True Bypass if the battery voltage is too low for the circuitry to correctly operate.
