Aggressive tones and vintage filter-style effects, all completely under your control.
The Tech 21 Red Ripper Bass Distortion Pedal is more than a simple distortion box—it responds
to the dynamics of your touch as you play. Play your bass harder for more fuzz and higher harmonics, ease up for less fuzz
and enhanced lower harmonics.
The Red Ripper bass pedal's nasty little secret is the R.I.P. control, which powers
your bass tone from vintage fuzz, to tectonic distortion and into the realms of Brassmaster-style octaver fuzz. Dime the R.I.P.
and enjoy the violent stabs of a Moogie-style synth tone. While the Red Ripper can emulate the tones of 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.
vintage devices, all this gory fun comes with modern benefits. The Red Ripper bass pedal's active 3-band EQ delivers studio-grade
tone-shaping in a compact pedal, while the Level and Drive controls let you 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 complete the Red Ripper bass pedal package.
The Red Ripper bass pedal's level and drive
controls work like a traditional, well-equipped amp. Low, Mid, and High are active controls, providing a wider array of tonal
possibilities. The Red Ripper's Character knob is a continuously-variable control that moves seamlessly between different
model voicings, covering vintage, high-gain, and face-melting lead tones. The Character and Mid controls, and the speaker
emulations, are all engineered to personify the specific amplifier traits and the speakers associated with each amplifier
Tech 21 effects pedals are designed using the best spec components, full-metal construction and a whole lot
of coffee. The result is a line of guitar and bass effects that are inspiring and eminently usable. Unlike many 'one-trick'
pedals, each Tech 21 effect is a feature-rich stompbox loaded with great tones for you to explore. Tech 21 pedals boast professional
details like touring-tough construction, high impedance inputs and low impedance outputs for signal integrity, with smooth,
custom actuators for silent switching.
