Tech 21 Introduces Red Ripper Fuzz for Bass

United States
English
30th December 2009 — The Red Ripper all-analog bass effect from Tech 21 features aggressive tones and vintage filter-style effects. More than a simple distortion box, the Red Ripper responds to the dynamics of your individual touch. Play harder for more fuzz and higher harmonics, ease up for less fuzz and enhanced lower harmonics.

The Red Ripper’s unique R.I.P. control takes you from vintage fuzz, to tectonic distortion, and into the realms of Brassmaster-style octaver fuzz and Moogie-style synth tones. While the Red Ripper acts similar to an envelope filter, the signal is not actually being filtered, so your tone won’t thin out and drop off when the effect is engaged.

Other features include active three-band EQ to deliver studio-grade tone shaping in a compact pedal, and Level and Drive controls to find the sweet spot between dirt and volume. There’s also a Low Pass Filter switch to compensate for full-range bass systems equipped with tweeters. Buffered bypass and a silent-switching, custom footswitch actuator completes the package.

Operable with 9V battery (not included) or optional DC power supply (Tech 21 Model #DC2).

Manufactured in the U.S.A. MSRP: $225.00.
