I just read some very positive reviews for the new Rocktron Velocity 300 power amp.

http://www.rocktron.com/products/amplifiers/rackmountguitar_amps/velocity300/

MSR is $370 USD.

After hearing clips of it myself, I'd have to say that it's definitely one of the best amp bargains on the market atm.

I'd love to get a single channel AD30 at some point!!

Has anyone here had much experience with Matamp? I know they sound amazing but I've heard they're not that reliable on the road, just wondering if anyone can clear that up. I'd love to get one but it's a lot of money to spend on something that's going to pack up all the time.

Following the signal from the bass: Boss tuner TU2 which acts as a signal splitter, the 'bass' side goes to the blue box, which is a extra bassy rat type distortion, and a filter, that adds more bass the harder you hit the strings (this gives awesome dynamic feedback, instant SunnO))), which was what I ordered from Mammothsounds), then the bass Big muff, this gives me my standard bassy fuzz for actually playing through. The other 'treble' side goes to the big silver Blackstar HT dual, basically a guitar preamp in a box, with an upgraded valve, and a marshall reflector reverb, this gives me guitar type top end, really bitey crunchyness, and some definition for chords, as I am pretty much filling space of a guitarist whilst pretending to be Om, and also can give me high wailing feedback. Both of these go to the black box which is a mixer, which isn't ideal for the purpose, when playing proper, I use two rigs, but everything is a bit early stages with my current project.

Reckon you should carefully pull that Hayden logo off, fairly classy looking cab aside from the massive bling. You might find if the cab has not been ragged with that much power before it might sound a little brittle, and lacking lows, the speakers take a bit to free up. Fairly glad you bought that head before I added it to my pile.

Well, if you use the different combinations allowed by the amp (eq mode/bright/rectifier mode/50-100W mode/lo & hi gain input), you'll see you have a huge amount of sounds available using simple tweaks. Be also warned (it is true for any guitar head) that it is very reactive to the type of cabinet / speakers you will use with it.

Most of the time, the matching cabinets for metal guitar amp heads are 4x12 with Celestion V30, but you can try other combinations (Celestion Greenbacks are among my favourites). Recently, I discovered that new brand of amplifier designed by Soldano, Jet City Amplification, which make especially good cabinets, loaded with custom Eminence speakers. I tried the 1x12, 2x12 and 4x12 closed back, the best result I have is by using a pair of 1x12, a sort of mini stack that is far lighter than a regular 4x12 but still sounds huge.

Here is what I've been worshipping these last time... JCA20H, 20W all tube head, single channel, that I use with a germanium boost for "almost 2 channels" ability.

Heard a sound clip someone did with a Mesa Boogie F-50 that sounded really good.

http://www.mesaboogie.com/Product_Info/Out_of%20_Production/F-Series/F-50/F-50.html

Anyone ever try one of these out for themselves?

Sorry for the big pic

This amp is great. So versatile.

Eventually though, I want to get a GREEN power amp [to slave with the Carvin] or 7 knob master volume unit.... better start saving now lol.

Well I'm currently using an engl standard cab with celestion V 60 but in the long run I'm looking to change to V30's. The sound is good with the V 60 but V 30 will give that more blasting sound I'm looking for...
