yea. i REALLY wish i had need for a 50W amp. there's a RVMk1 at the L&M by my house that's been there practically forever. everytime i go in, i play it, love it, and then go home to my TT, which i also love.

Yes, that's the joke....it translates directly to, "I don't know what". :lol: Thanks Mike Myers for that one. Ich weiss es nicht.

I can't agree more. :D


That clean channel is really amazing, and I love the tones of the dirty channel, from almost clean to cataclysmic gain, it's all golden. :P
And I really don't know why they changed that reverb - it's crazy, yeah, but it's fantastic crazy!!!!!


I will admit to not having used the effects loop yet - I've had it 2 years now and I'm very much plug and play type person.

I'm guessing that the amp was too dark for this guy, considering the knob positions. Ohh, and Clean volume on 3 oclock and dirty Volume on 730 with gain maxed??? My guess is a bedroom player who never used the clean channel.

I agree to all the above! I searched for over ten years and countless amps and when I plugged into the Rockerverb 50 MK1 I knew that was the one I had been looking for. I haven't tried the MK2 yet so I can't comment, I also have a Retro 50 but that is a different animal.

I got one you can have for less than that :D
i'm interested in hearing more! currently on the market for an orange head. i'm testing out the dual terror right now which is great but i have a feeling i'll be returning it to L&M to get a rockerverb instead.
