Founded in 2009 by passionate musicians Jacques Ruppert and Jean-Claude Bintz, the aim of Ruppert Musical Instruments was to deliver to their customers products of unbeatable build and sound quality, ensuring that musicians get the most out of their performances. 

Their first product the Basswitch IQ DI bass preamp and DI brought the quality of a rack-mounted studio preamp and direct box, with an EQ specifically designed for bass application, to a stomp box format and combined it with sophisticated signal routing technology and today many of the best bass players in the world still rely on the Basswitch IQ DI for a large range of their performance needs in live gigs and studio sessions.

Following on from the overwhelming success of the Basswitch IQ DI, they released in 2012 their second product the Acouswitch IQ DI, a high-calibre acoustic guitar preamp and DI stomp box dedicated to the acoustic instrument player’s needs.
