This all-analog distortion effect features aggressive tones and vintage filter-style effects. all completely under your control for truly custom sounds. 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 nastly 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 the 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.

Unlike vintage devices, all this gory fun comes with modern benefits. Active three-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 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 package.

Tech 21 RED RIPPER Features:

  • Unique R.I.P. control manipulates the harmonic content and changes the character of distortion in a typically unusual, Tech 21 way
  • MID is tuned to 12dB @ 500Hz
  • Low is tuned to +22dB boost or -12dB cut @ 120Hz
  • High is tuned to +30dB boost or -12dB cut @ 2.5kHz
  • Highly sensitive and interactive controls provide a broader range of tweakability and maximum flexibility
  • 1 meg Ohm high-impedance 1/4" input
  • 1kOhm low-impedance 1/4" output drives long cables without loss of signal integrity, even in bypass
  • Custom, silent-switching actuator
  • Buffered bypass eliminates the short comings associated with "true bypass" (pops, and clicks, and high-end loss when multiple pedals are connected together), as well as signal loss associated with other types of switching circuits.
  • Heavy duty, all-metal construction
  • Operable with 9V alkaline battery (NOT included) or optional DC power supply (Tech 21 model # DC2)
