Reuss Musical Instruments

Reuss The Utilitarian preorder (Swiss Army Knife version) SALE

TEMPORARILY SOLD OUT - We are building more pedals. Next little batch ships in September. Available to preorder now (limited availability)

The Utilitarian is a Reuss Swiss Army Knife pedal in disguise

The story is, I had the full first batch of 'Wine and Roses' pedals horribly misprinted, and the only way to remove the printing was by sandblasting the enclosures completely, down to the bare metal

The end result proved to be not suitable for a new powder coat finishing, but the raw, sandblasted aluminium looked pretty cool. Kinda rough and rugged. Too good to throw in the waste bin.

So now I am using them for this limited edition, discount price version of the Swiss Army Knife. The two pedals are the exact same on the inside.

The raw aluminium enclosures features real, handmade silk screen printing.

I am also releasing a limited edition version of the 'Wine and Roses' pedal in the recycled enclosures. Also at a bargain price. This pedal is called the Double Standard Distortion. And it's pretty great too (available now!).

All of these pedals are handcrafted in the EU to the same, uncompromising standards as the regular Reuss pedal line. Full warranty applies.
