The phrase "versatile" has been applied to so many pedals that really only have a few decent sounds. Then comes a pedal like the SuhrRufus Fuzz and you realize just what the word actually means. With a dynamic range often unheard of in the world of fuzz pedals, the Suhr Rufus Fuzz can punctuate your sound with the distortion of 1960s/70s rock 'n' roll and get things heavy with a dirty Seattle tone from the 90s.
With some innovative new technology, Suhr has transformed the pedal world again by offering a multi-tap system that allows users to change tone without effecting your set-up. Dubbed Multi-Function Technology, or mf(x) for short, you can choose between two different tones, simply by holding down the foot switch. Ready to move on from one setting to another? Just hold the switch for two seconds and you are on to another setting.
By pressing on the pedal, you'll bring up either a red or green light. These two different colors correspond to different user modes, Normal (green) and Fat (red). The differences between the Normal and the Fat mode are very distinct. Normal offers a flat, midrange fuzz tone that isn't overpowering. At the same time, this setting is extremely malleable and can be taken whatever way you to want to go. The Fat mode offers scooping fuzz that leans towards the heavy side, but still can clean up well when adjusting the volume on your guitar or bass.
Making things less confusing, the Rufus pedal has memory control settings within its electronic makeup. This component essentially remembers what tone you were playing last and will hold it, even after turning the foot switch completely off. This can be a huge benefit when cutting studio tracks or playing out live, as you'll know exactly what tone is coming up next when you hit the pedal.
When Vintage King gets new gear, Pete Thorn always gets the first crack at trying it out. Check out Pete's latest video as he shows off the wide range of sounds that the Rufus can achieve. Also, check out the Bondi Sick As pedal that is featured in Pete's rig for some sick overdrive.
I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!
I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!
In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.
This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.
Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.
You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!
I would recommend Vintage King to any one looking for top-class gear, unbeatable customer service and the best prices on the map!
My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
Thanks for your great service and getting this out today. You guys really are the Kings!
Better than expected! Truly impeccable service. Your team was professional, knowledgeable, provided speedy delivery above and beyond standard. Vintage King Audio is definitely my go to for all of my audio and information needs.
