HAO RD-1 Rust Driver


  • Level
  • Normal/Bright/Warm



Overdriven tones of late 60's British plexi panel amps are still considered by many as one of the best guitar tones. Rust Driver is designed to produce thick, throaty sound, regardless of pickup types, that enhances the vital frequency range for electric guitars to cut through the mix and amazingly maintains a guitar's original tonal character at the same time. As a result, Rust Driver generates a very similar tonal character to those fabulous amps. With a preset 3-position EQ switch (Normal, Bright, Warm) and a Level control (amount of distortion is fixed), simplicity is the key to Rust Driver's unmatched tonal qualities.
