Sure, tube amps are the way to go but try and find one that's stereo... there aren't any. That's where this amp comes in for me. I use it as a practice amp in the living room kind of thing and I also use it for recording. The clean channel sounds great and it can be overdriven to get a decent blues type distortion. The distortion channel starts off where the clean channel gain soak ends. The sound of the distortion is good, not great, but kick in the chorus effect and then it sounds great. Reverb is very good too.

I generally use this amplifier as a last resort practice amp. The response for more technical playing just isn't there. I spent some time trying to dial in a passable sound via a plethora of different pedals, either building on top of a totally blank, clean sound, as well as with blending the effects from the pedals and the onboard effects. The result was always the same...the top end just can't keep up. I tried different guitars and both passive and active pickups. Nothing gets it to where I want it (that isn't to say someone else with differing tastes wouldn't be able to).

To be more specific, I will play a moderately distorted, rather fast scale-based lick on a combination of the G, B, and high E strings and an unresponsive, strained and struggling, sound comes out of the amp. It is everything that I remembered that I didn't like about the older solid-state amps. A lot of more modern, solid state and modeling amps don't have this problem. Other solid-state and modeling amp brands that I have played through which have been able to defeat this problem are Fender, Peavey, Crate, Line 6, Ibanez, and probably a few others that I can't remember at the moment, so I can't understand why the Rocktron Rampage wouldn't be able to follow suit.

On the positive side, the stereo chorus is very nice. Clean tones are great, but again, getting too technical on the top end is like Lucy pulling the football away from Charlie Brown..."it's not happening block-head." The best sound I've been able to coax out of this amp is an Alex Lifeson-like imitation, but Alex is very technical at times so when it comes time to play the solo from Spirit of Radio for instance, Alex leaves the room and the Lucy and Charlie Brown duo replace him.

not good

By SHREDMAN81-Mu8EH

from Duvall, WA

This amp's tone is incredibly thin and tinny, maybe I?m just used to the warm, full sound of quality amps

Buy it!

By Mayday24

from Suffern, NY

My dad and I went to a guitar store and he saw this amp. We took it home. My dad loves it! but i play diffrent music than he does. I like it through my guitar a little more than his. He plays a squier 51, I play a stagg h300. The features are the best. I have never seen a chorus on an amp! But this is a crazy good amp!

Great little amp for 2 beans -

By Petey-9fZ_j

from Chicago

I have had a couple of Rocktron products in the past. These were good products, as is this Rampage 50. Price aside, the sound is very nice. The effects are acceptable and the distortion is pretty nice as well. A worthwhile amp for the money. It can be quite loud, although at high volumes it gets a bit edgy. I have connected an external 2X12 cab, and it sounds great. If you are looking for a decent amp, I recommend the Rampage 50.

ok for a new player

By sg-freak

from TEXAS

Over all its an ok amp. The distortion is great and the clean channel is awesome, but its just not loud enough. Once you get into the higher volume the tone gets bad and fuzzy. Its good if your a new player but if your serious about music spend the extra money and but a higher quality amp.

Lives up to the name

By Goat019

from GP Texas

I bought one and ran it into my Behringer 4x12 stereo A cabinet and it blew me away. It's a great little practice amp or a full blown gigging amp ran into a 4x12 cab, I couldn't have asked for a better rig. Also, both my Ibanez's have SDs in them and I also use a DigiTech RP200A - all in all, an unbeatable combo.

Review

By Plague

from McAllen, TX

This is simply one of the best amps out there. The people at Rocktron really know what they're doing. I use it mainly for recording, and it gets the job done. It's even loud enough for full band rehearsal. Hook this baby up to a 2x12 and you've got a beast. BUY IT.

Great chorus, sounds like a stack, very versatile,

By white trash wednesday

I've played my Rocktron for 15 minutes, the chorus is worth the price, very loud, very adjustable, can't believe this amp's sound! Buy it, a no brainer.
