HAO RR-1 Rust Ride - Bass Driver


  • Normal/Bright/Warm
  • Level



HAO's first and only bass driver unit, Rust Ride was born to give bass players a blistering overdrive without losing low-end and note clarity. With a preset 3-position EQ switch (Normal, Bright, Warm), Rust Ride offers a lot of tonal options. Also, Passive and Active inputs allow you to operate Rust Ride with any type of bass pickups while individual Direct and Effect outputs allow a routing of clean bass tone to a tuner P.A., or a second amplifier for blending dry and effect signals. Using Rust Ride with a guitar reveals the whole new dimension of the pedal with tight low-end and high octane overdrive/distortion.
