    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.

                    It's alright.

                      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.

                              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.
