RH1 custom series signature guitars coming up – 2021!

Over the past year, I have been working closely together with Dutch custom guitar builder Haar Guitars on a Richard Hallebeek signature model. After a lot of finetuning and prototype testing, we’re approaching the last phase and starting production on a limited edition custom run of Richard Hallebeek RH-1 signature guitars end of 2020!

This guitar has all the specs I have accumulated over the past 41 years of playing that suit my style of playing and sound and I think work great for everybody in this style of music.  I can’t wait to get the guitar out there and in your hands, so you know what I’m talking about! We ship worldwide – detailed specs and pics coming soon!

New cd BUMERANG available for preorder!

Our new cd BUMERANG is now available for preorder! The cd has been a couple of years in the making and It has been an interesting collaboration with bassist Lorenzo Feliciati who gives this band a four wheel drive with his 5 string headless low-end. I’ve been playing and recording with drummer Niels Voskuil for a couple of years now and he is a real animal on de drumkit but also a great composer and producer. We co-composed all tracks together, some live in the studio and some ideas were bounced back and forth through the internet. Which is a different way of working then I am normally used to, but it took me out of my safety zone for sure. There are also a couple of new sound clips on the website and there is a chicken picks deal available. The digital download for this cd will be later, around 2021. Thanks all for you support as always in getting the music out there! ???www.richardhallebeek.com/release/bumerang/

Fractal Audio Preset Pack released!

I’ve designed a Fractal Audio Presets Pack featuring 168 different scenes, divided over 21 presets in collaboration with Thibault de Robillard (aka ‘Fremen’). The pack contains 21 preset with 8 different scenes each. Bursting with effects, alternate cab choices, Richard’s very own modeled HOOK Captain head with his personal settings and multiple delay choices. Presets inspired by the classic UD stomp settings are also included, as well as  presets with no amp modeling, that can  be used in the loop of a head or preamp when you are playing live with an amp. Also, 4CM (4 cable method) presets are included!

This package comes with a detailed full color booklet with text and photos, explaining every different scene and how the sound was designed.

All sounds are actual live and studio sounds that are used by Richard Hallebeek and can be used right out of the box and will surely inspire your playing and compositions!
