The Reuss pedals are completely handmade here in Europe by myself and two pairs of helping hands. Not a single Asian sub-contractor is used for circuit boards or enclosures manufacturing or anything
Every part is soldered by hand. The high quality switches and jacks are all hard wired to the boards, which is an extremely laborious way of building a pedal. Most so-called boutique pedal manufacturers simply orders a complete, drop-in board and enclosure from China for easy assembly, and tells you it's handmade in the US - or whereever. I use separate, local small businesses for the machining, painting and silk screen printing of the pedal enclosures. Reuss is truly and honestly handcrafted locally in Europe, which obviously is a very costly way of doing things. They are craft items. Not industrially manufactured assembly line products.
Because of this, we build the pedals in tiny batches of typically 12 pieces at a time, and sometimes they sell out quickly, and we can't keep up, unfortunately.
Whenever a model is sold out, and we are actively in the build process of a new batch, I open the web-shop for pre-ordering. So if you are decided that you wish to purchase a certain sold-out Reuss pedal, you are strongly advised to jump on a pre-order if the option is available.
Especially the Warren Ellis Muzzbox, Repeater Fuzz, Goo Goo Fuzz and Rowland S. Howard pedals are in high demand and has proved to sell out quickly.
At present, there are no plans for up-scaling production volume.
All the best,
Anders / Reuss
