An All-analog Tone Machine!
Distortion has long been the bastion of guitar tone. Employing tube amps, pedals, and the like, guitarists have used distortion to craft their unique styles. But for bassists, finding a distortion that doesn’t turn your tone to mush has been like seeking the holy grail — until now! Tech 21 turns their analog expertise toward bass distortion, with the Red Ripper. Responsive, aggressive, and ready to rip your head off, the Red Ripper (courtesy of the R.I.P control) can conjure anything from classic bass fuzz tones to Brassmaster-style octaver fuzz to Moog-style synthy stuff. But don’t worry about your tone thinning out — the Red Ripper is, first and foremost, a bass pedal with a heavy emphasis on bass. Don’t let your guitarist be the only one in the band with stellar distortion — let ‘er rip with Tech 21’s Red Ripper!
