    I noticed this today on the website:

    http://www.suhr.com/Rufus-ReLoaded/

    A new reloaded pedal.

    ******* suhr! I'm just saving up for a regular rufus and have an koji incoming. (with a jack, shiba and riot on my board)

    Suhr, call me a fanboy!

    Ditto on being a fanboy.

    Just realized that I have all of your suhr pedals on my board. They just make great quality pedals.... and that's the bottom line.

    If those fine Suhr people are lurking in this thread, I hope they are considering a delay pedal in the near future.

    How do you switch to the octave up feature?
    I have my regular Rufus incorporated into my pedal board switcher with the remote switching so I can get the Red and the Green....how will the Octave Up be triggered?

    and damn you Suhr for making a great pedal greater ;)

    I quote: "Rufus Reloaded is a unique pedal that offers a vast array of fuzz tones. With the Re|Loaded edition we’ve added an extremely dynamic and tactile octave-up effect."

    So i suppose it's an always on thing, but responds to your playing.

    Octave is kicked on or off by holding down the on/off switch as we do with the fat mode on the standard version. The main tone is a cross between the standard Rufus and the fat mode on the standard. In the video you can see Don activate the octave as it switches to red mode. It will remember the last mode you were in as you turn it in and off. This is done with our
    mf(x) Multi-Function Technology
    Thanks !!!

    Ok, so normal mode is mix of the normal and fat of the original en the extra mode is the octave up.

    This doesn't make my choice easy.

    Who needs to make choices ! ;-)
    If you don't have room for both I'd see if you can try both at your dealer. One certainly does not replace the other.

    Yea, I think I'll just add the Rufus reload and drop the Velvet Fuzz because the Rufus was already making the Velvet kind of unnecessary. So I'll have 4 voices of Rufus instead of 2 +the Velvet that wasn't getting used.

    I'm looking forward to this now! when will it be available? Checked a few places and the web sites say coming soon...

    That makes more sense. Think I'm happy with my standard Rufus in that case. And I hold my hand up as a fan boy, mainly because I like things that work together! Current board is all Suhr pre amp, along with a CAE Wah, and Strymon in the loop.

    I'm still debating because i have 3 originals on my board. The reloaded would look out of place. Hmm, guess john is right. Maybe i shoul consider an extra pedaltrain mini with the reloaded pedals...


    @alo: we should make a suhr pedalboard thread!

    Good to know about the pedal's availability - although they may be a while longer reaching us over here in England...

    Kinda bummed about the mixed fat and normal mode. Wish there was a toggle switch of some sort to switch... On another hand, what other pedals would you like to see reloaded? I'd love a reloaded Jackrabbit and Koji.

    Yes indeed. It will depend on when they place their order and when their next shipment is scheduled to leave, so the dealer is in the best position to give you the time frame. We hope that helps!
