Hey everyone, I just got one of these for cheap on eBay. It should be in by the end of next week. I’m hoping it’s a good one because parts are likely to be hard to come by.

I checked mine about a month ago for the pure fun of it, and I couldn't believe it, but it appeared to be working perfectly apart from one dodgey switch.  Now going from completely dead to this is quit a turn around.  I didn't play with it long enough to get to use it properly.  It's complicated enough unit.  I still have my doubts as to whether or not it has enough distortion for me but I really hope so as I always loved the rockman tones.  Dunno why any of the stuff I've bought to get these tones has always disappointed.  Sounds heavy on records.  Feels weak in reality.

Keen to hear how you get on with your SST

Hey rabidgerry, it came in today. I have the same impressions that you have of this unit. I definitely will have to use an outboard EQ in conjunction with it to get the best out of it. For that matter I saw a video of some guy comparing the rockman x100 pocket amp with the Nobels SST-1 equivalent and even he mentions that a graphic equalizer helped the Nobels units get there

Update from today: Finally had a chance to dial in some tones with this thing with my Kawai Aquarius and modifies Kawai F-3 guitars. I will say that the 4th EQ band does nothing but make my instruments sound honky. Given, there are tones to be found in this thing, but an outboard EQ in the effects loop and a hot set of pickups will get close to early thrash.

So far my favorite sound has been on clean 2 with a medium but slow chorus. Somehow I managed to replicate Ernie Isley’s rhythm tones on late 70s Isley Brothers records with these settings.

The one big downfall, to my knowledge, is no digital parameters to save as everything is knob based.
