    Rocktron re-released the VooDu Valve preamp

    VooDu Valve LTD Guitar Preamp - Rocktron - Technology for Guitarists



    Kinda interesting they re-released it, but it's a re-release of 1995 technology with no real updates other than the red face. I loved my Rocktron Chameleon for over a decade, but it's been over a decade since I played it, so I'm not 100% sure what Rocktron is trying to accomplish here.

    It's kinda nice to know the company is still around though. I've seen nothing from them in a long time, especially since I thought all of the guys behind their early success, I believe, are now at ISP.

    Kinda like Randall.. They have a few things trickling out here & there but at times it almost seems like they've given up.

    I remember a few years ago, Rocktron had announced the Black Widow and a couple other rackmountable pre-amps but have no idea if they ever made it to market. They used to have a bunch of pedals that weren't too bad for the price but they've all but disappeared except for the 2nd hand market.

    Good to see; kudos to them for doing it. It's a neat preamp IMHO.
    Haven't yet checked its price level, so..

    If they'd reissue the Piranha i'd be throwing money at my screen.

    Doesn't the Voodu use the Pirhana drive tones, or am I thinking of something else?

    This would be pretty sweet if these didn't sound like shit to begin with.

    Didn't MegaDave use a Rocktron preamp for the longest time?

    A Prophesy between 1999 - 2006 I think.
