The Rust Ride Overdrive Pedal is 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), the Rust Ride bass stompbox offers a lot of tonal options. Also, Passive and Active inputs allow you to operate the Rust Ride bass overdrive 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.

The Bass Liner’s simple-yet-effective user interface invites intuitive tone-tweaking that’s equally at home on stage or in the studio, while its gorgeous Aurora-Blue finish would make any luxury automobile jealous!
The Bass Liner’s Level Control offers up to +10 dB of signal boost while the Input Gain Control allows optimization for use with any instrument or electronics. Add girth to a thin-sounding instrument or boost your volume to cut through the band during that all-too infrequent Bass solo section!
The audio quality of the Bass Liner’s tone-shaping circuit is typically reserved for high-end rack gear that is prohibitive in both price and portability. Each voice of the 5-band EQ offers hi-fidelity and wide dynamic range with 18 dB of cut/boost at 50 Hz, 160 Hz, 630 Hz, 2.5 kHz, and 12 kHz - the key frequencies for proper voicing of any Bass instrument. At center detent positions these Controls offer a perfectly flat response and have absolutely no affect on an instrument’s inherent tone.
The Bass Liner runs on a single 9 Volt battery or it can be run from a 9-18 volt (tip-negative polarity) DC adaptor such as the PA-9 Power-All. Higher voltages offer a wider dynamic range and add more punch and clarity to the low-strings of extended-range instruments.
True Bypass switching offers clean, uncluttered bypassed sound while the Mute switch allows for silent tuning via the secondary Direct Output jack.
The HAO Bass Liner is a must-have for the discerning bassist looking to improve their tone without complicating their rig or over-taxing their wallet. Simple, portable, powerful – the HAO Bass Liner covers all the basses! FREE SHIPPING!
