scored a Rocktron Velocity amp.....

Cool!  :thumb-up:   Is it the older 2U Velocity 300?  I had one of those....highly recommended as an SS rack poweramp.  The newer 1U Velocity poweramps I've heard not-so-good things about but never tried one of those myself.

No it's the newer one that is 1U.  It's funny as I have heard the opposite in regards to the older 2U version.  What have you heard is bad about the new one?  I'm now concerned.

I heard the new one can blow fuses, however it can be avoided if you power the unit on in one swift flick of the switch.  Not sure how that will be affected when I have everything turned on by my Furman.

I heard the sound in the new one is good, the reactance control apparrently is more than just a lo end control accoridng to a guy I quizzed who has reviewed the amp on youtube quite thorughly.  He is the one who also told me about the fuse blowing.  He said it adds an almost slight compression style feel to it.

I hope I haven't bought a  :poop:

well, fun story.

i asked my kids what they wanted to play. my daughter said, violin. so we got her a little 1/8 violin.

my son is a fan of Queen and i let him hear some guitar amps. he actually picked out the ac30 without knowing what an ac30 is. i asked him if he wanted an ac30. he has a guitar already. he said no, i want to play the violin instead.

so we got him a violin. i have quite a bit of different instruments at home. drums, guitars, keyboards, flute. they don't like any of them. now we have 2 violin.

since i want to play with my kids and help them with their instruments, i went to get myself a violin. being born different, i had to find a left handed violin. note that i am ambidextrous. i can write with either hand and etc. but i am 100% a lefty on string string instruments. i remember coming across an old left handed 80 year old strad copy at long and mcquade store in a different province. i called and they said it has been sitting there for a year. looked like a pretty decent quality instrument. its being shipped. they said i can rent it for awhile and return it if i feel it's a piece of crap. they did promise me that it is a quality instrument. so after doing tons of research on violins, it turns out to be a pretty good one I THINK and anything new at that price point will buy me a piece of crap.

so now i have 3 violins in the house all of a sudden.

funny thing is i actually enjoy playing the violin.  :headbanger:

Well, I don't recall anything specific....just hearsay I suppose.  I can tell you that if it sounds as good as the older 2U unit did it's a winner.  :thumb-up:

What was good about the old one?  They've stopped making the 300 now and only make the 100LTD.  MAINLINE is the new Velocity 300.

Got the velocity.  Excited to try it.  It's the heaviest 1U rack module I have ever come across.  So heavy.  Heavier than the last 1U I thought was heavy which was my Kitty Hawk quattro and Yamamha PG-1.  It's a beast and nearly 9kg.

I#m assuming there is a lot under the hood hence condensing this model down from a 2U to a 1U.  Hopefully I like it.

Kim is this you?

   I heard a demo of one on youtube, sounded crap. It sounds like an amplifier trying to imitate an amplifier, if that makes any sense.
