Re: Limited Rocker30.

Welp I sold the 2 Rocker 30's today to Guitar center in Manchester if anyone wants them that is where they are. One limited white tolex and the other is orange. Both are pretty much brand new as I never really played them... I moved on to Matrix amps... The VB800 is killer, has a jcm 2203 preamp wit...

Re: Rocker 30 "Cathode Resistor" mod.

I put KT88s in my R30 a couple years back and love it. I'm sure there's an older post with photos somewhere on the forum. I went with 10W cathode resistors which were tricky to fit onto the board but I had the amp disassembled to install a 50W output transformer anyway. While more dynamic and clear...

Re: Rocker 30 "Cathode Resistor" mod.

6CA7s have a bit more lows and highs or less mids, rounder/fuller. Not like a 6L6 though, still in the EL34 range.The KT77s I tried once, didn't use very much. I don't recall much of the detail other than thinking they were kind of neutral sounding. Ade Emsley mentions that the 6ca7 is a military g...

This is true. How was the tonal difference in your words?

Re: Rocker 30 "Cathode Resistor" mod.

Thanks Nick for the valuable information. I'm not afraid to tinker around but as you put it, its not as easy as just unsoldering a couple resistors and soldering them back in. I guess they will sit in the boxes unless someone wants them?

Re: Rocker 30 "Cathode Resistor" mod.

Nick, your making a whole lotta sense buddy :) I don't even know what I should sell them for? I bought them both as I said from Humbucker music, the white limited 2009 was $1450 and the straight up orange tolex one was $1250. They have never left my house and pretty much have been in their original ...

Re: Rocker 30 "Cathode Resistor" mod.

"ps you are in the enviable position of being able to modify one Rocker and compare it to the other, unmodded one!" I suppose. I guess I should mod the "non" limited edition one for the sake of originality. They are both in brand new condition bought by me from Humbucker music years back. Funny thin...

Re: Rocker 30 "Cathode Resistor" mod.

Ade Emsley suggests 6watts "KT88`s will work in a Rocker 30 head but they wont fit in a combo as they will hit the speaker! You will also need to change the cathode resistors from 330ohm and 270ohm 4W to 470ohm and 470ohm 6W! The Rocker 30 head will then run on KT88/KT66/6L6/5881/6550 with slightly ...

Rocker 30 "Cathode Resistor" mod.

I have 2 rocker 30 heads and have been thinking about swapping out the cathode resistors to (470ohm/6watts) but can't seem to locate these resistors in 6watts? Also, has anyone done this and if so have you tried using 6550's? My old jcm800 2210 came stock with 7025's and 6550's (GT) and the sound wa...

Re: Love the Rocker, will I like a Rockerverb mk II?

Cool man! I can't imagine the R30 not being loud enough for any application at all. I used a 100watt JCM 800 for years and the R30 is on par with it. Stage volume at 1000 plus venues is only loud enough for you. Anything under 1000 seats, even unmiced should be more than enough for even playing Napa...

Re: Love the Rocker, will I like a Rockerverb mk II?

OK lets try again- If you want more volume add more speakers (2-16 ohm 4/12's) good speakers like these- http://www.electrovoice.com/product.php?id=410" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; . The China made v30's are junk! Hows that? Scott Grove, love him or hate him knows exactly what he i...

Re: Love the Rocker, will I like a Rockerverb mk II?

Lose the V30's and get more efficient speakers if you want more clarity and volume. V30 are 100db try finding over 100db. Comparing watts is somewhat meaningless in terms of volume.
