Little dissapointed...
beaverHausen, 05.02.2017
After trying the original Rock man back in the 80's this is a bit of a letdown!

The clean sound is just that. You can tell there is compression working and it does a decent job however, turn up the volume more than half way and the sound quality begins to break up.

Crunch or semi distortion is quiet compared to full distortion or clean and again the device seems to struggle with volume.

Distortion sound is the best. Plenty of sustain, sounds good whichever pickup you're on and you can find those 'tweaked' harmonics although, there is an evident mains hum on the dirty settings. This could possibly be due to testing with a 60's strat reissue?

The sockets and buttons seem more robust than they did in the 80's but the headphones are cheap.

Haven't plugged into an amp yet and am concerned about the noise but will have to wait and see.

I feel that this is overpriced - 50 euros would be a better price point but as a practice device you can't really complain. I don't doubt there are better ones on the market but nostalgia, regrettably, took a hold of me...

Ein Stück Nostalgie
Helmut9367, 04.02.2015
Als der Rockman Guitar Ace Anfang der 80er Jahre rauskam, konnte ich ihn mir leider nicht leisten. Da hat man sich halt mit einem etwas umgebauten, alten Kofferradio begnügt - na ja.
Damals hatte ein Freund von mir, dieses Teil geschenkt bekommen und mir mal ausgeliehen. Das waren natürlich Welten im Gegensatz zu meinem Kofferradio. Das will ich auch irgendwann mal haben. Vor kurzem entdeckte ich dann beim Stöbern im Internet, den guten alten Rockman. Sofort bin ich dann auf die Seite von Thomann gewechselt - und jetzt war es soweit, ohne zu zögern habe ich mir sofort das Kultgerät bestellt. Wie gewohnt lieferte Thomann wieder mal sehr schnell. Als ich das Teil dann in meinen Händen hielt, wurden wieder alte Erinnerungen wach, typisches 80er Jahre Design. Auch der Klang hat sich nicht verändert - genau wie früher. Natürlich gibt es für den Preis heute bessere Qualität,
aber es hat eben den Kultstatus. Ich habe es auf jeden Fall nicht bereut, mir den Rockman gekauft zu haben und jedem Nostalgiefan kann ich dieses Teil nur empfehlen.

Back to Low Fi

Juste pour s'offrir un petit frisson passéiste : pour le même prix, aujourd'hui, on a 100 fois plus de possibilités et des sons à ne plus savoir qu'en faire.
Ou mais.
Si vous louchez quand vous voyez une 2CV ou si vous aimez écouter des galettes en vinyle qui craquent, vous serez sensible à cette grosse boîte avec 3 boutons et des écouteurs en fil de fer (il y a probablement des fêlés qui dépensent des fortunes pour se procurer les premières éditions du Rockman).

Trois sons bien définis et plutôt utilisables :
Un son clair qui fera sonner toutes vos guitares comme une Telecaster, un peu comme les amplis Fender à transistors des années 80/90
Un son disto de type Marshall revu par une pédale Boss
Un son très disto façon fuzz, bien compressé et bourré de sustain
Pas besoin de réverb, les sons ne sont pas trop secs.

En revanche si c'est pour jouer du Boston (ben oui, Tom Scholz) il y a mieux...
