Anyone own Rockerverb mki and mkii heads?

Post by M37a11 » Fri Sep 06, 2019 11:38 pm

Hello! I own a 2010 Rockerverb 100 mkii and it's been a great amp for me. I originally was looking for a mki but never could find one cheap enough. Today, I found a Rockerverb 50 mki online for a great price so I pulled the trigger and bought it.

Just curious if these two amps are different enough to justify keeping both? I'll find out soon enough but thought I would throw the question out there to see if any one else has both and what the pros and cons of each are. Mostly interested in the high gain differences between the two amps.

Thanks!

You may find the 50w less will mean it has much less bass and might actually cut better through a mix. The clean channel will break up much earlier too, and the 6V6 do lend it a special character.

I love my RV50 MKI. And it's reverb is absolutely insane. Love it!!!!

Very exciting!!!

Bear I mind that if it's been used much, you may need a new set of 6V6s to make it sound it's best!!!

Let us know hobbit compares.

I love my RV50 very dearly!!!!
