Notes This mid 60s two transistor Fuzz Box was designed by Pepe Rush an Italian electronics engineer. I'm indebted to fuzz sound expert Graham Green for the pictures of his Rush Pep and the Project V fuzz boxes below. Graham also owns an interesting prototype called Fuzzy which probably evolved into the Rush Pep.
