The Falcondrive! The Maunal!
Congratulations on your purchase of a The Aquabats! The Falcondrive! by RUDE TECH... you're so cool and smart.
Here's a quick rundown of how your pedal works:
IMPORTANT: It takes 9vDC center-negative power from a type-M barrel connector. Any 9vDC guitar power supply will work. However, be aware that the polarity of guitar pedals is a little weird... most power supplies for every other electronic device are center-positive, so the polarity is reversed.
Not sure if you have the right power supply, or simply don't have one? No worries, homie! Use a battery.
There's a battery clip on the inside of the pedal, just open up the bottom plate, install a 9vDC battery, and insert it between the wall of the housing and the PCB. The PCB is designed to hold it in place.
Hot Tip: To save battery life, unplug the cable from the input jack of the pedal when you aren't playing.
Your The Falcondrive! also comes with a 5-year warranty for the original owner against any manufacturing defects caused by normal use (so don't throw it in a lake or something).
Need warranty repair? Email email@example.com
Not covered by the warranty (aka not normal use):
- Using the incorrect power supply
- Reverse polarity or overvoltage will be evident by failed protection diodes
- Using the wrong connector size will be evident by the DC jack pin being pushed in (remember: don't force stuff... that's a good life lesson anyway)
- Normal wear of graphics or paint
- User-attempted repair/mods
- Broken hearts of all the groupies you're about to have
Examples of items covered by the warranty include (but aren't limited to) the footswitch wearing out, input jacks breaking, or it just plain not making noise anymore! For any questions, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Broke it trying to do a mod? We can return it to its original working state for you for the bench fee, but we won't mod it. If we find you've tampered with the circuit, or applied incorrect voltage, we'll be glad to bring it back to life, but we'll charge a bench fee of $35.
KISSES! Have fun!

As Bassist and Muff estimator I can only say that I have found the best Muff out there. Finally a Muff that can also be used in Band or Live and not only in the bedroom alone! With the boost on the midrange frequencies the pedal responds perfectly with the tone that doesn't get lost while maintaining that characteristic sound. Beautiful and beautiful!
Last but not least Jesse is a great person and very honest. Responds to all emails and if there is a problem he does everything to solve it even at his expense. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
I know very little about fuzz but this thing is just such a joy to play. There's so much fun to be had in this pedal. I have been channeling Tool, the Beatles, Black Sabbath, Alabama Shakes, and more with it. Brings a smile to my face every time I kick it on.
This is my only pedal besides reverb. I use the trim pot on the mid drive to lower the volume, so I'll turn the pedal on with mid-drive for more tamed overdrive stuff, and then turn off the mid-drive for harsher, more acidic fuzz.
Also it is built so solidly and it looks badass.
Two things drew me to this pedal. First was my love of the aquabats, though I am more familiar with their earlier albums, I have seen a bit of their later tv shows, etc. The paint job on the pedal really stands out when you look down at your pedal board. The second thing is the design of combining two well loved pedals into on beast. With a simple turn of the blend knob you can go from a classic DS-1 style distortion, to a DS-1 overdrive. The ability to blend those two in your desired mix is really cool.
This pedal is awesome and if you have the chance to try it out or pick one up, I think you can’t go wrong.
I saw this as a pre-order and could not contain myself. With lightning fast strikes I hurled my cash, coins, and assorted pocket lint to the wizards at RUDE TECH and anxiously awaited my pedal. with bated breath (that was probably a little stinky from all those onions on my pizza) I solemnly plugged in my new acquisition and stood before the pulse pummeling power of my proffered power head. Let’s just say I was not disappointed. From its amazing artistry, to its solid build, and continuing to great tone,I can now pretend to be my very own master of chords and solos. And, while I fight crime, evil masterminds, and menacing alien overlords, I now also hold the power of goodness in my hands.
Solid pedal all around - looks, tone, and construction. Two thumbs up and a Shaka sign from this old Aquabats fanatic. It’s super rad.
It's the Aquabats sound I had been looking for. I picked this up as soon as I heard it.
Great Muff tones from three varieties, plus a toggle for removing tone is killer enough, but an adjustable mid drive as well? This pedal is well built and solid as a rock. knobs and switches are top notch. Inside is clean as a whistle.
Want Black Keys? it's there in the green mode with saturation about 3/4 way up. want grunge? Black Russian Mode. want Gilmour Solo tones? dime the volume and tone and leave saturation low. Looks great too. Don't over think it.
This kit is amazing. And the instructions and and support was amazing. If there was any other kits offered I’d buy them all. Jesse and his team are great. I will continue to look at rude tech as my first option for my pedal needs.
One muff to rule them all. A great pedal that has been a mainstay on my board for over a year. Give her the old college try
Putting this together was a blast, and the instructional video walks even soldering novices step-by-step through constructing it. The pedal itself is pretty simple but it adds an awesome grit to the synthesizers I run it through, with volume control to keep things from getting out of hand.
The 3MuF-14 Distortion/Fuzz is one of the best muff pedals ever. My favorite of the version switch is the Civil War in any configuration. To have the others on top of this is such a delight. I would highly recommend this pedal for muff lovers with an itch to have a variety of options to shape their sound.
The 3muff-14 is a permanent member on my pedal board and is the only fuzz pedal I need or want. Tons of tone! I use the full range of sounds from sweet violin to all out extreme fuzz with endless sustain. Dial in the boost to help when needed. There are “hidden” adjustments to make the sound your own.
Price, quality, durability, delivery time, support is second to none. All sellers should be this good. You need this pedal! Buy one and a second to gift a friend. He (or she) will love you for it.
I’m not a big fan of the big muff - never have been. The 3MuF-14 fixes all the things I needed fixed about the original. It gives me multiple voicing, defeatable tone circuit, and a switchable mids boost - what more could you possibly want?! On top of that Jesse is the best kind of people and a joy to talk to!
Buy one now!
This pedal has not left my board and for good reason. This pedal has tone for days and is perfect for the grunge/alt/shoe gaze/doomy styles I often play. It also looks cool as hell. I love to stack other pedals into the 3muf and get huge fat chonkey tones. ALSO not to mention Jesse is a fantastic person and fixed my 3muf pedal when something went wrong (i think I might have accidentally goofed and put wrong power to it??) anyways seriously get this pedal.
Great pedal. If you can't decide which Big Muff suits your needs this is the perfect solution. Sound quality is excellent, build quality is excellent, and my order arrived in record time. Nothing but praise! This has been wired into my hardware effects chain since I got it a year ago, and I don't anticipate it leaving.
Looks cool, the build is sturdy as hell, and sounds positively gnarly. The wide range of tones makes it work in a lot of situations. Jesse really nailed it with this one.
