so a buddy of mine has a fender roc pro 1000
which is ****ING LOUD!!
but for some reason he is using a digitech death metal pedal through it (as if it couldnt get loouder or more annoying)

from what i can tell by reading reviews, this amp is very giggable hybrid amp

im curious if anyone knows what the distortion is like on it though
my buddy never uses it without that godawful pedal (it is definitely worse than some opinions i have heard of the boss MT 2)

anyone have any experience with this amp
i know solid states can suck when played at high volumes, but i saw this being used at a show a couple days ago, with a quite crisp distortion

If you already know what the distortion sounds like from the gig, why are ou asking what the distortion sounds like? Maybe I'm not understanding.
Fender '72 Telecaster Deluxe Reissue -> Korg Pitchblack Tuner -> Boss PS-5 -> EHX Big Muff -> MXR EVH Phase 90 -> Menatone Pleasure Trem 5000 -> Line 6 Verbzilla -> MXR Carbon Copy -> Boss RC-2 -> Peavey Classic 50

the pedal says "death metal" so it HAS to be good.. no?

i think certain pedals with words like "metal" or signature gear is just a gimmick.

the "METAL muff" "death METAL distortion" "METAL zone" are all not too great as well as the zakk wylde overdrive, slash wah, avril telecaster, ect...

i think he probably thinks it sounds better because it SAYS metal on it, and just doesn't have an ear for tone yet.. or he needs to have a footswitch for his amp but is making do with a pedal.. or he just like the feeling of having a pedal.. all bad reasons to use a death metal pedal.

i haven't heard the amp, but you should ask him to switch the channel at a practice

It's decent, but not for the M3T@L.
I'm putting my GAS on hold
for a couple months in order to pimp my ride.


Don't judge me.

^The Metal Muff is actually pretty good.

The Roc Pro is very high wattage, and a pretty decent amp. I don't know about the distortion, though, but tell him to stop using that DM pedal, at least.

I'd buy a DM pedal for 10 bucks. You can use it as a wall of noise type of thing.

TS your wasting your time. To your friend its the perfect tone. I know someone who uses the same sort of set up a digitech death metal into a hartke hybrid half stack. He fights with the amp constantly. Im not sure which is worse the feedback or the tone. I showed him 1 night how to adjust the pedal and amp for almost no feedback and to get somewhat decent heavy tone out of it. He says "wow thats awesome the feedback is gone and I can hear my chords and its still heavy". 5 minutes later everything was back to the original settings with the horrible feedback and a mash of noise. I just go get a beer out of the fridge and go outside to keep my hearing and wait for him to be done.
