HEAVY HACKJOB RIFFER
Pros and cons, anyone has experience with both?
The thing is, I already have a rack set-up, so none of that really applies to my situation as I find rack gear more practical anyways! Just wondering if anyone owned both.Wirelessly posted (Wondernuts)
Rack setups are heavy and unless you're going full midi integration (which the rockmaster fails at dismally) with a range of other effects and devices, keep it simple with a head. Also a 5150II/6505+ give you full eq on both channels as well as the resonance and presence controls actually being in the power section itself for far better tailoring of the power amp response.
I know, I just wanted to start a fire hahaha. Thanks for your advice though, I believe you. It just seems weirdly divided, some people have had good experiences with the Rockmaster cool for them I guess. For the price they go I might just buy one ($150) and try it, worse case I'd keep it for recording, I heard outstanding results of the Rockmaster into a cabsim, seriously.I told you in your other Rockmaster thread :squint:
If you go into a live show with the rockmaster be prepared to be disappointed. You have been warned :lol:
Thanks!I actually have both here in the house. I own a 5150 and rack rig with a marshall tube poweramp and my brother used to use his rockmaster through one channel of that. Both sounded pretty good! Rack stuff is heavy and the rockmaster is a bit light on features but if you just want a good sounding distortion channel either will do nicely. It's been a while since we used the rockmaster though so I can't remember how good it sounded but it never let him down when we used it in our band and it cut through fine when eq'd with the mids up.
