Sorry to say that Pepe Rush passed away unexpectedly on 5-November 2018. But his daughter Lucy, who had been building with him, is carrying on with the business and still making the same pedals. We got some of these in stock in mid 2019, if you can add to the cart we have one in stock for you. - AnalogMike

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 1966 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 60ís including The Beatles (who used one at
Abbey Road during the recording of Revolver) The Shadows, The Animals
and others.

This is NOT the unauthorized copy built by the British Pedal Company for WEM.

Built on a replica 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
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, and each unit is passed by the designer.



Here's the GUT SHOT:

I love how the transistors are tucked into the board:
