not bad

Arnaud123, 20.10.2014
I do not like the brand Rocktron, which only expensive products (well priced) sounded pretty close. This new entry-level preamp is a good surprise: it does little (really little, 2 channels, one input instrument, one output, one input for the footswitch), but the sound is credible, Much more than on the gainiac. The equalization is effective, its clear as saturated, with a nice analog grain. Only flat for my taste, the race of the gain is too fast: it sounds already very saturated even the gain to zero. It is a pity that the preamp is so marked for the "extreme" music, while it was possible to spare a bit the intermediate saturations.
It still remains good for the price and for a style of music rather limited (widowmaker, it is on that is by for funk). For hard rock or heavy base, I think this is not the best choice.

Widowmaker

LarsGuitar82, 07.01.2017
I bought Widowmaker to my little guitar rack and I use it with Rocktron Velocity 100 LTD final stage.

Widowmaker sounds best with the base at. Twelve increase it to around three o'clock, it becomes muddy and midrange disappear. I boosts instead of Velocitys "Resonance" to gain more ground and "presence" at. Twelve.

I sat and screw one full day back and forth and shoot a lot of cutting and Widowmaker actually sounds good but you have to take their time with it. Clean channel is a good basis for the pedals and sounds satisfactory.

What you should consider when putting together your own rack / rigging loudspeakers are of great importance for the final sound. Wrong speakers and you may feel that something is missing. I use Eminence Swamp Thang, among other things, and it contributes to a sound with a proper drive.

In the wrong hands, and poorly matched speaker / poweramp can Widowmaker let rubbish but in the right hands, it is a preamp with heavy distortion where modern sound changes drastically with small adjustments.
