I suggest you start with a X100 or maybe a sustainor

you should be able to get one in europe just look around on Ebay. also it's not that hard to convert it to 240 (thats what you guys run on right?) i'll send you a schem if you like.


overall I suggest the rockman over the DBX if you are looking to EQ a guitar. if you want to eq more than that it's not going to do much because it focus's on the guitar freq range. the DBX will be better at doing whole mixes.


How is the rockman more dirty? I was under the impression EQ's were supposed to be as transparent as possible. I will be using the EQ only for my guitar, as I have more elaborate VST plugins to run over my overall mix. However, the DBX is considerably cheaper so I'm trying to weigh the pros and cons. The DBX 2x15 band is only 145 euro for example, yet the rockman would have more useable mid frequency sliders.

By dirty I mean it sounds a bit more dirty. and that is because it's 20 years old. like I said send it in and for 80 bucks they'll recap it and everything. I know what you mean though. The DBX is going to be a great EQ for overall things and maybe more versatile but the Rockman will own it for guitar frequency's

Bump for the heck of it

EDIT: Nightraven I know this a bit old. but I'll respond anyways. if you want great analog echo buy one now. I've seen 2 or 3 in studio's before, they're that good.

it's not very practical for a pedalboard but maybe if a cheap one crops up some day and i have cash lying around i may try to pounce on it to give it a shot, and for the flip factor

ok Boston, let me get this strait. You want all of us to be playing through headphones, so music does not spread to everyone across the world, one apartment at a time. That would be killing free music, because the neighbors love to hear me play scales I'm sure!

On a more serious note, I have never heard of Rockman. I think I will have to look into this X100 deal you talk so much about. Really, most headphone outs sound like crap, but this sounds promising.

Yep. NO FREE MUSIC!!!!

if you want good rock'n'Roll tone for night time you can't go wrong with a X100 it'll sound great through nice headphones and even better through your stereo.

Question

I have a question, I have an old ultralight ( model IIp ), and was wondering if I could use an insert cable from the combo aux in/low level out jack to connect a Behringer Virtualizer Pro for recording? I would just try it, but don't want to fry anything. Has anyone tried this?

At 4:00, what model is that?

Also, I love that video...though it frightens me to see his enormous hands on a regular scale guitar. >_>

TD: *GASP*

If it is what i think it is. there are less than 10 in existance. It's the rockman "superhead". it's nothing more than an XPRa in head format with 2x 50w power amp/PA. Basically you'll never get one....

it also may be just a XP100 with one of the sides taken off. in that case you can get one for about 500-700

also just keep and eye out for an XPR (Not to be confused with the XPRa which had a better noise gate and some extra features. very rare) it'll run you about 600.

You really like to get bumping, don't you?

It does look like nice equipment though, I've always considered the Boston-tone as one of the best sounds from the 70's.
