yoTrakkz's review"rampage!"

Rocktron Rampage Distortion
The Rocktron Rampage pedal is both a treble and full range booster/overdrive pedal that is designed for use with electric guitar. Hence the name, this is supposed to emulate that vintage British sort of drive sound. The pedal has pretty standard characteristics in the fact that is requires power from a 9 volt power supply and has 1/4" connections for input and output. The pedal isn't rack mountable in any form.


There isn't anything strange about the make up of the Rampage , making it extremely easy to use no matter what sort of level you're on when it comes to pedals. The main parameters that it has to work with are for volume, tone, and gain, which are ubiquitous parameters for drive and boosting pedals. The Rampage also has foot switches for engaging the effect and for choosing between using the pedal as either a treble booster or as a full range booster, the latter of which is essentially using the pedal as an overdrive pedal. A manual won't be necessary unless you're having some sort of technical issue.


What's not to like about the sound of the Rampage ? It really has it all as it is very flexible in what it can do. You can use the pedal subtly as a treble booster or use it has a full on overdrive pedal as well. I've used the pedal on a recording session where I was the engineer and not the player. The guitarist was using the pedal along with a few other effects, with a Gibson Les Paul Studio and the studio's standard '65 Fender Deluxe Reverb. He was using it as both a treble booster and an overdrive, but for the most part it was being used in full on drive mode. The pedal has true bypass, which is awesome especially in the studio as it won't kill any tone or give any unwanted buzz.


While this isn't the cheapest booster/drive pedal on the market, those interested need to keep in mind that you're getting a whole more with the Rampage . It isn't your typical overdrive or treble booster, as it's got the ability to be both in one. I'd only recommend the pedal for experienced players who are willing to spend a bit more for high quality gear, but those who anti up the extra dough will sure be happy that they did in the long run...

Rocktron Rampage Distortion
Rocktron is really well known for their midi foot controllers that allow you to select rack unit effects or pedals without having to do a dance on your pedal board. They are also well known for their preamps and effects processors much like TC Eletronics processors. They're not as well-known for their foot pedals but they should be because they make good quality foot pedals at reasonable budget friendly prices.



Designed to give you 75dB of raging gain
A scoop control lets you cut mids up to 30dB
Amazingly little noise
Sustain knob for feedback effects


The RT rampage distortion pedal is a nice high gain distortion pedal with quite a few features for the high gain guitar player in mind. You have a bass control knob a scoop, trebel, level, and sustain control knob. This is pretty much everything you would want any high gain distortion pedal. So many pedals lack girth or depth or sustain, but this pedal really tackles all of those issues that you would find in many boss distortion pedals or any other competitor. One cool thing is the scoop control knob which allows you to scoop the mid section to really give you that new modern metal sound. You have a trebel control which is nice too because the more you increase trebel the more you increase the distortion. In addition you have a sustained control knob which anyone is ever played the distortion pedal or distortion/ distorted amplifier knows how much sustain is important in your overall sound.


At new you can find these pedals for right around $70 which is a great price for this very versatile pedal. You will get everything you want and it's extremely friendly to a novice or a beginner. I recommend this to anyone looking for a good solid pedal for under $100.

Rocktron Rampage Distortion
Analog distortion pedal


editing sounds obvious after 10 minutes.


I have the fatal tube and ss 20 AMT, the tube area in MI. I bought it out of curiosity and I do not regret the contrary.
I place just before the amp Hughes and Kettner 36w TubeMeister crunch channel with a little gain and it sounds fabulously.


since today. I know the Boss distortion, AMT, I fx-axis, the vg 88 vg 99 and 55 gr. it is this combination that I'll tweak (the rocktron rampage in the pedalboard after compressor, auto wah and before then torpedo tube amp VB 101. a good noise gate is essential. decimator I am.

Rocktron Rampage Distortion
Of distortion pedals simple:
- Trs solid aluminum housing a beautiful blue
- Input / output jack 6.35
- 9V

- Bass + / - 15 dB
- Scoop: attnuer for up to 30 dB to 800 Hz
- Treble: + / - 15 dB
- Level: output gain
- Sustain: gain distortion (up to 75 dB depending on manufacturer)


Use could not be more simple.


The rglages are effective and trs trs active (eg see anything with the legalization Marshall Valvestate, which I think is ineffective).
What is the scoop? This distortion is fat trs, thus produces a lot of medium frequencies. The scoop can therefore dgraisser sound (lol).


I use it for 6 years. In the era it was part of the distortion pedals (without lamp) Chres most: in the 1500 f (225)!

- The solidity of the case, the connections and switches, the knobs that are being protected.
- Ffective of the rglages, which allows a wide range of sounds (while keeping the sound rocktron)
- The sound the hottest I heard a transistor pedals! Almost the same sound as the Rocktron rack lamp gainiac!
- The quality of the switch

I like least:
- The level of distortion that is too low lev position, which does not provide a lightweight crunch (m'enfin good, it's not a crunch of pedals).

If you arrive to find 55, you take it!
