VERY COOL! Pics only too. I like everything on the 32 except the EL84 power section. But, that'll keep the original a classic I guess. I just think the cathode biased EL34s give the Rocker a lot of its character.

IT HAS BEEN REBORN! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

Honestly, I'm not into either haha. A head version is much more intriguing to me, and I'm sure they will be here. Always been a fan of EL84's. Not at all interested in a 110, or 210 combo.

Now if it was a single channel amp @ 15 watts, based on the original R30 dirt channel, I would be all over it. Doubt the 15 watt natural channel will have much headroom.

VOTW speakers aswell :(

Fantastic Rocker 32....a new product I can get excited about!....

Still has a natural channel, but with power switching and an effects loop. Wonder how the tone compares with the dual terror??? .......I'm assuming it's voiced for classic rock.....

Stereo or mono setting and the blurb states it's an excellent pedal platform....yes interesting!

It a Rocker, Jim, but not as we know it!
A stereo Rocker? Intriguing.
I wonder just how similar this is to the Tiny Terror circuitry x 2.

I still prefer my 2xEL34, 1x12", no effects loop, no bells, no whistles, just plenty of wallop Rocker.

I second that. Simplicity is why I love the R30 so much. It will never get replaced.

Exciting!!!!!

The only thing I'm not particularly keen on paper is the 10" speaker, but I'm sure they will have tried both 10 and 12" at design stage?

In any case, pretty exciting! I hope I get to try one soon!

I'm sure the Rocker 30 fans are going to have doubts, but I'd like to hear some clips of those things. They look pretty intriguing to me.

Can't wait to try it out, the 2x10 design intrigues me!

oh crap.... well NOW I have to try one of these :D

Interesting design... 10" speakers... EL84s... I wonder if this will be quieter overall than the R30?

I'm wondering if the EL84 will smooth out the overall feel of the dirty channel too. I certainly hope the the fuzzy character of the original R30 will remain.

I don't mind the 2x10. I ran my Rocker through a open back 2x10 (Celestion Vintage and G10 Greenback). Thought it was one of the best sounds I've had.

Those links are gone. I thought somebody jumped the gun. I guess we'll have to wait until NAMM for the real unveiling.

I'm not surprised, I couldn't find any details of it anywhere else.....and that's definitely happened before.... intentional ? Clever marketing? ....who knows .....
