Universal Audio Ruby ’63 Top Boost Amplifier

The Universal Audio RUBY is a ’63 Top Boost Amplifier, loaded with jangle and bite!

Inspired by the legendary 2 x 12-inch combo amplifier that powered the British invasion. This pedal is an end-to-end emulation of one of the most iconic British amps of the ‘60s, sporting Brilliant, Normal, and Vibrato channels. Furthermore, these channels deliver everything from chimey cleans to all-out crunch.

You will be amazed as a guitarist at how closely the Ruby ’63 sound is recreated from a tube amp recorded in a live room! This life-like quality comes courtesy of UA’s incredible mic, cab, and Dynamic Room Modeling technology.

If you’re looking for even greater control, the Ruby ’63 sports Bluetooth compatibility to connect to Universal Audio’s UAFX app for enhanced editing, access to artist presets, and more!

So, What Makes RUBY ’63 Unique?

  • Get the valve amp that powered the British Invasion, perfectly emulated in a stompbox
  • Take ace studio amp tones anywhere, complete with legendary mic/speaker pairings and famous boost effects
  • Download artist tones, customize features, explore presets, and more with UAFX mobile app
  • Stay inspired with rich Top Boost tones and tube-powered vibrato

Switch up your speakers

What’s more, part of the Ruby ’63’s magic is found in the dead-on speaker/cab emulations. The Ruby ’63 comes loaded with three cab/mic/speaker settings, seamlessly matched to the three different amplifier modes.

Guitarists looking to cover a wide sonic range will love experimenting with the different speaker and amp pairings; plus, when registering the Ruby ’63 with Universal Audio, you get three more free cab sims to play with!

4-cable mode offers powerful channel switching

Each pedal in Universal Audio’s UAFX series features a special “4-cable” mode accessible via the UAFX Control app. Due to this, bypass your amp’s preamp when the pedal is engaged for incredibly realistic tube-style tones.

By hooking your pedal up to both your effects loop send/return and the front of amp input, you can instantly switch between your amp’s stock tone and your UAFX pedal routed straight into the power amp, effectively adding two extra channels to your amplifier.

What’s more, Universal Audio designed this feature with multiple pedal setups in mind. You can connect any number of UAFX pedals in this configuration for multi-channel madness!

UAFX Control app

Finally, are you looking for greater control over your tone? The Ruby ’63 is Bluetooth compatible to pair with Universal Audio’s powerful UAFX app. In addition to giving you greatly enhanced editing options, UAFX also includes access to artist tones, custom presets, and more!
