Standard Ruby is ideal for lifting the guitar’s signal, especially during solos. It’s unique “ego” control enables graduating the output level.
Some of its other features are: notably improve audio to instruments with cheaper pickups; stabilize the output of different kinds of guitars; and, at the end of the effects chain, return shine/ brightness and volume to the weakened signal.
Standard Ruby sounds great with electric bass, adding a unique tone, especially when playing with a pick. Just like with guitars, it significantly improves the quality of sound in basses with cheaper pickups.
- Ego: Controls the instrument’s output level and, close to its maximum, it delivers a velvety saturation.
