    they're ok for what they are... not as good as tube amp but better than most SS/hybrids.

      Definitely one of the best SS heads out there IMO, and a steal at the price. It's got a relatively warm clean, very nice sounding although a bit trebly so watch what speakers you're using. Great gain, can get pretty br00tal; at least as much as I'd need to. Not insanely loud for 100 watts but good enough for practice if you don't have a super hard-hitting drummer or you're not trying to compete with a really loud tube head.

      Naturally it's not the greatest amp ever but for the cost it's awesome. Also they are very light and portable.

        I have the 112 combo and I like it. It has a Marshally overdrive, but the tone leans more toward the upper middle frequencies than a Marshall amp.

        One gain channel is louder than the other, and the gain controls can be set independently. I set the gain lower on the quieter channel for rhythm and the gain higher on the louder channel for lead.

          A friend had the combo, and from what I can remember it had good cleans and a surprisingly nice overdrive. Since you can get them dirt cheap they are a good buy.

            This.



            And they make excellent back up heads due to the cost and reliablilty...
            I just got rid of one Id had for almost ten years...
            Sold it for $100 to a friend.
            Im sure Ill be missing that thing down the line..

              I have 2 Roc Pro heads and I love them to death.

              Just don't pair them with the Fender Special Design speakers. They suck ass.

                  They also respond like a tube amp in that the dirty side cleans up nicely when you roll off your guitar's volume knob. They don't respond like a tube amp in that they don't compress at higher volumes, which is why I ultimately sold mine.

                    I had the 1 12 combo for awhile. The clean is pretty nice, and the overdrive side has a lot of gain. Not the best sound quality though. Good and cheap, not a long term solution though. This thing will give you mega gas in that you will love it at first, and grow to hate to it and want to upgrade it.

                      I don't know about that. I just bought a second one because I dig them so much. Did you ever try yours without the stock Fender speaker? V30s really make the amp shine.

                        Never through V30's, I tried it through my Basson cab though and I remember thinking it sounded under powered and kinda wierd.

                          Hmmm. Thanks for the info! I have a friend who has one for sale for $200 so I may go ahead and grab it. No foot switch but I can work around that.
                          I've read that it's incredibly loud...Is this for true?

                            If it's the head, thats a bit much. $150 would be more like it, especially without the footswitch.

You have to admire his ambition and determination , but at some point , he will realize he is retarded and there isnt a pro pogo stick league. I just dont wanna be the guy to tell him . Wait...............</div>

                              Matt-

                              Thanks. I found out the reverb does not work as well so maybe I will make a counter offer.
                              I'll have unlimited time to try it out either way.
