    Got this recently on a whim and while it sounds killer, don't see myself using much distortion beyond what I get from my amp. This pedal is extremely versatile, even with just the one knob as the three settings are very distinct. You can hear sound samples here: J.E.S. International, Inc. (the "Bright" sample nails Les Claypool's old slap tone). This pedal is handbuilt and costs around $159+ new. Has a few tiny paint nicks and one replaced screw on the bottom. Works perfectly, power adapter included.

    Selling for $90 shipped in the US; International shipping is no problem, just PM me for quote.

    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.
