I bought a Dunlop Rockman Guitar Ace to complement my old SR&D Guitar Ace. The only significant physical changes are the Dunlop sticker on the back and the choice of input jack hardware on the control panel. The Dunlop Rockman lacks the SR&D logo on the front of the body.

To me, the SR&D and Dunlop products sound alike, in clean and distorted modes. It appears that Dunlop has succeeded in continuing the tradition that Tom Scholz started. The settings are limited, but I think the Guitar Ace still has a great sound when used with decent headphones.

It would be nice to see Dunlop re-release some of the more sophisticated Rockman products, such as the X100 or the Soloist.

I was unfortunate enough to buy this online after reading a decent review of it. It sucks. The backing of the battery case has to be opened with "a large coin". I had to use a butter knife because no American coin would work to open a poorly designed battery holder on the bottom. The overdrive and treb functions do nothing more than boost the white noise that the machine produces. It makes a good bass sound like crap. The machine itself is made of cheap plastic that broke after 1 weeks use. The average battery life was 4 hours at the most. It sucks up to much juice from a 9v. The headphones is comes with looks like they were stolen from an airline. All in all, it's not worth the money. Save your $ and buy something better!

Guitar Ace

By Savage-cGoLb

from OR

Comments about Rockman Guitar Ace Headphone Amp:

Just purchased the Guitar Ace. Bottom line: Very poor peace of equipment. Heres why: Very low volume, no chorus or reverb. Now, I knew there were no effects which is "ok" but the volume, especially for the distortion, is a real big negative here, when you're trying to play to a CD. The old Rockman X100 is still the best and I'm waiting to here back from the company, after complaining to them about the Guitar Ace. We'll see if there are plans to revamp this thing.

It just have the name

By Frankyblues

from Montreal

Comments about Rockman Guitar Ace Headphone Amp:

This Dunlop version has really nothing to do with the originals from the 80s. It's ok for practice, but it's not the real thing, find an original if you want that ''Bostone''. I returned mine to the store after one day. They should not used that name for a product that can't match the original.

Use it direct

Comments about Rockman Guitar Ace Headphone Amp:

Even the original blew used through a guitar amplifier. For direct recording, a different story. The clean setting was a bit thin, but the distortion settings were excellent, with chorus.

JUNK! - Don't buy it!!!

Comments about Rockman Guitar Ace Headphone Amp:

Cheap plastic case that will break in 5 minutes. NOISY hissing weak output, cheesy sounding AM-radio quality tones.

Very good for the price...

By Wish_I_could_play_my_strat_man

from Florida

Comments about Rockman Guitar Ace Headphone Amp:

I bought the guitar ace for practice purposes and it is quite good. I replaced the headphones with a set that I already owned which enhanced the product's performance. There is a little bit of noise and the distortion selection does not mimick the Boston sound any longer but the product is a great little practice amp!

More Than a Feel'n

By Stitch-x8ne4

from Georgia

Comments about Rockman Guitar Ace Headphone Amp:

OK, this unit is pretty good. I received this as a gift but also have the original Rockman from the 80's. I think the original is much better if you can ever find a used one since it has more options. One thing I have noticed from both models is it sounds much better when you run the output cable through the 1/8 inch headphone jack instead of the 1/4 inch instrument out into your Amp. The sound is much cleaner. I use a Fender stage 185 for my main amp with a Dean Markley Overlord and with this Rockman it sounds just like the classic Boston sound.

Road Warrior Practice Amp for Civilians

By Mark-482jW

from Warren, OH

Comments about Rockman Guitar Ace Headphone Amp:

Great little personal amp that lets you take your favorite guitar on the road for practice. My job requires regular travel and this solves the problem of getting an overdriven electric sound without disturbing anyone in the hotel. It gives you great range from clean to heavy distortion. You might want to upgrade the headphones. Battery life is longer than you would expect.

Boston tone in a box - nothing more or less

By Someone who digs that Boston sound

from Southern CT

See all my reviews

Comments about Rockman Guitar Ace Headphone Amp:

The folks who loved the old Scholz branded models and hate this must be hearing something I don't. I've used just about every version of this thing since it came out, and FOR THE MONEY and FOR THE PURPOSE this Dunlop version delivers. Take a quality single coil/P90 guitar, run it into this, run that into an amp with a cabinet back (i.e. some natural compression) and you have almost the exact tone of the first three Boston album rhythm and lead gtrs. THAT is one of the most influential gtr tones of the whole rock era, and versions of it appear on every digital box out there. Scholz is anti digital, so you get hiss. You can get rid of a lot of the hiss with tone controls (on gtr or amp or board or all three) or add a noise gate. If the goal's "I want to plug in and sound like late 70s arena rock" this thing kills. Otherwise, I suppose it is just cheap plastic junk...understand what you're buying guys!
