Hey RG, that's a long time for a SS amp (it's along time for a tube amp), how old is it, my (out there) guess is the power caps need replacing. Now the dangerously loud for my hearing  >:D , cool, good amp then  :whoohoo!: :headbanger:

I think it's 4-5 years old.

As I mentioned, it could have been my preamp, but it didn't sound like the way the rockmaster normall kicks in.  This to me sounded like the amp.

I will know when I turn it on in a few days time and use my FX pedal rather than external preamp for tone (just as a test).

Is it good?  Yes it sounded and felt fantastic.  Really added something else to the sound.  If this is bust I am immediately on the hunt for a new one.

Ok guy's, went to the rehearsal room,

turned it all on via furman but left the amp off.  Found a preset patch on my GT5 using the amp modelling preamp so no (preamp in the loop), walked over to the amp turned it on, raised the volume slowly..................................................hey presto sound right away!!!

Jammed with that for a while, made the onboard stuff sound better for sure did the amp!

Then I switched back to my normal patches that incorporate an external pre in the loop..................hey presto..........................no sound!!!

So the Rockmaster was the culprit most likely the other two times!

Then what?  I started inserting a patch cable in all the loop returns at the back, still nothing.  Just by chance I rammed it into the foot switch controller socket, BAM!  Sound!

Then I was good to go  :thumb-up:

Jammed for an hour or so, f**king love the Velocity.  Best SS amp I have ever used.  Softens everything and like makes the strings feel silky to play, really hard to fathom what the hell it's doing.  Also seems to add a nice depth to everything and lets the notes jump out when playing lead.  I feel I can play a lot softer now as well and get great touch sensitivity.  Not exaggerating guy's but I get all this from the amp.  Also there is undoubtedly warmth.

I will record some over the next week for you hopefully.

These are GREAT amps, a lot better then the newer ones.

Love the fulltone you have there, which I could get my hands on one.

agreed, sounds really good and the power section saturates really easily at 25 watts.

same seller also had an ADA Ampulator for $500 cdn..

tempted to get it, but I have no use for it.

it's either the tc 1210 or terc. price on the 1210 is getting ridiculous here locally if i see one.

1500 euro for a chorus is a bit too much for me.

Since I recently just got the Roctron Intellipitch, why not bag mysewlf an Digitech IPS33B!!

This one is a UK model so no step up required.  I really like the IPS, I think they sound awesome.

Hey RG, I always liked mine, not that I use it much anymore.  What is the difference with the 'B' from the original?

I had a IPS 33B. It was great until it wasn't. It stopped saving presets so I got rid of it... did they have a battery  backup? If it did, I didn't know...

I assume they have a battery to keep presets  :dunno: .  I haven't used mine in quite a while, I pulled it from my live rack and was going to include it in my studio rig but haven't got around to it..

Oh please don't tell me it had a battery backup. I got rid of mine a few years ago because I thought it was broke. I can be an idiot sometimes... OK, more than sometimes.
