The best amps tend to come from builders who are musicians themselves, and that certainly applies to Rocktron. Its founders, Bob Waller and Jim Chowning, stepped back from the stage to start up the company in 1983, introducing a range of signal processors, amplifiers, effects and other hardware. The results were the foundation of Rocktron as we know it today. Musicians couldn't wait to get their hands on the new gear, and their success encouraged Rocktron to forge ahead. Today they're still going strong, and you're looking at the evidence of that right here.
Naturally, the right Rocktron amp for you is going to depend on what you're looking for. If you're a guitarist, you might want to start by checking out the V50D Velocity 50W Guitar Combo Amp. Or, for bassists, take a look at the Rampage Bass 60. Since both of these are combo amps, they couldn't be any easier to use: just plug them in, connect your instrument, and you're ready to go. Are you searching for a super-compact amp that you can use anywhere? The Rocktron Velocity Series VG05 Guitar Combo Amp is a fantastic little performer - it can run on battery power, so you'll always be ready to jam, even if there's no outlet around.
When straightforward performance is what you're after, this lineup of Rocktron amplifiers is the right place to look. Designed to be played hard on and off the stage, they're fantastic pieces of kit for any bassist or guitarist. Amplifiers may only be one part of Rocktron's catalog, but they're definitely one of the highlights.
