They are like 3k, so I wouldnt even bother touching one, lest the knob break off and im down 700 bucks for a new knob.

im looking to get the stack... i hear good things. what did you think?


yea ive played the head version. its pretty badass. the reverb soudns great, and if youve ever played a dual rec, the 3rd channel is basically the same as the orange channel, and the 4th is the red. 1st is the clean. the 2nd is basically another clean thats voiced a bit different, you can get a more british sound out of channel 2 imo. its a great amp so long as you have patience to twist the knobs a bit. go for it.

its good for about anything you can through at it. ive actually been thinking of selling my dual rec and saving up for one.

i have a question about these, too.
would this footswitch (including the tuner mute) work for the combo version?

I almost bought the head version, before I tried out the Triple Rectifier and fell in love. The Road King was very impressive. I'd recommend it.

edit: Shit, I thought it was the Road King, not the Roadster. No idea about that one. My apologies.

If you can afford the amp, it's one of the best ones you an buy. You'd be suprised at how many bands use a dual rectifier. But they are a tad more than the average guitarist can afford. But if you can afford one, get one they are amazing.
