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.


UTILIZATION

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.


SOUND QUALITY

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.


OVERALL OPINION

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...

iamqman's review"Rock out Tron"

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.

UTILIZATION


Features

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



SOUND QUALITY


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.

OVERALL OPINION


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

UTILIZATION

editing sounds obvious after 10 minutes.

SOUND QUALITY

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.

OVERALL OPINION

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.

SOUND QUALITY

Well I stop to answer questions trivial and I mean basics. Then the grain is nice, it responds very well to guitar volume, which for a distortion pedal is not so widespread.

But one wonders if it really planned to be plugged into a guitar amp:
- To have an output level compatible with the guitar input must not push the adjustment level beyond 2 / 10
- The only way to take advantage of it to a flat EQ on the bass and treble amp A0, and mid-bottom, where it responds correctly, and it sounds very pretty well. But if you set the amp on a more standard Equalizer then you end up with a shrill treble shit that tore the ears.
In short if I want to use this pedal for anything other than make mumuse I can not. Finally what I can not reasonably be expected to touch all the equalization of the amplifier when I turn the pedal?

As for the lack of a real level of distortion that I've never particularly disturbing, after all when I chose to use this pedal is not for playing Frank Sinatra.

Brief sound interesting but totally unsuitable for use on stage or if used to add a small strokes disto.

Damage the grain is nice, the color too, and the sound is warm enough.

OVERALL OPINION

I've long since I've never used too, I would not take it on stage and if you tell me I was flying too bad.
Too bad she still has undeniable qualities, but when you add it as adding a second before the preamp of the amp blows it leaves peanut. As to consider tweaking this thing is not even worth thinking about, it is a typed complex with components (for shots from a DS1 is clear that one has to money), and as components are in CMS, they can not change anything.

Rocktron Rampage Distortion
Low, medium, treble, level and sustain (distortion), conventional input and output jack what ... nothing exceptional multi c no effect ...

UTILIZATION

The config is simple, need not be a sound engineer for use
we clicked on the Distorted tamping we rained ... need I say more lol

SOUND QUALITY

First of all, I respect all opinions are donns, all tastes are in nature ...
But what the dception! I play in a group of Death mlo the dark tranquility .. etc., guitarist for over 15 years, I say, well, make a small investment in a new distortion pedals in, I have read and heard full of positive advice even for my style ... well I tell you the same distortion knob donf has not ben ca DGIG the disto mtal many ways my rgl my korg AX3000 provides better and less messy, c for a no pedals, heavy, rock, but for which mtal dcap such death, black trash bin not see fishing, no grain, and if you want a precision in sharp riffs and furious solos, well not give the same c ... Not to mention the terrible blows constantly, you have to turn the knob to scoop donf to limit the noise, a positive c true that for a lamp without pedals, the sound is warm enough, and playing on the set you can have a beautiful palette of sounds, but not my style DEFINITIONS!

OVERALL OPINION

I just have to receive j boss pedals on the pdalier amp and am all over to find something that sounds, well, not.
it has a pretty face, rugged, you can play with any of the heavy rock. for more extreme drop.
very good report quality price 57 euros on an online instead of 100
I will not go this choice of c ca not my kind of music.

cladamousse's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Rocktron Rampage Distortion
This is an analog distortion pedal compact oriented rock sound big (big big win) with an input and an output jack 6.35mm with an on / off button on top.
Input power supply 9VDC standard barrel (power supplies and ibanez boss ok) on the side of my model, extremely impractical pedal board. Covered parking for 9V battery. Very solid metal shell, blue or gray metalized finish.

UTILIZATION

There are five buttons:
Bass, Scoop, Treble, Level, and sustain. Bass and treble can choose the level of these, the scoop is used to select (like the line6 uber metal from home) the level of filtering mediums in order to dig more or less equalizing.
The pedal has a default gain enormously high level button is there to limit the increase in volume when activating the pedal. The sustain ... I heard almost no difference between mini and maxi.
The configuration is simple because easily audible on the record.

SOUND QUALITY

That's the problem, sound quality, the distortion is very nice because no crunch and no drooling like Synthetism MT-2 or über metal, for against the gain is so huge that the pedal snores like a toad, and it is mandatory to add to it a noise gate (and even in the loop of ns-2, we can not find effective control between noise and choking sound ...). At the level of distortion itself, we regret one knob adjustment, because whatever the EQ settings, the grain of the pedal is the same, it's a pity. The distortion is strong enough to officiate in the rock but not enough to the metal for my taste. I use the clean channel of a tube amp ashdown, put it before the canal lead to suicide is seen the noise it generates.
The punk garage / grunge / rock filthy can find happiness but fans of precision, go your way.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it about two weeks ago and I sold it today, probably in favor of a metal muff, I could keep it if it were not for the noise problem (yet j 'I tried several power supply and battery to try to correct the problem without success). His rock sound is pretty cool and it's a pity. The look and finish are also very good. For the price, I would rather a good old DS-1 family or go see other brands.

Rocktron Rampage Distortion
See below

UTILIZATION

Very simple.

2 knobs for equalizer (bass-treble). a LEVEL knob that lets you adjust the volume of the distortion, a button that colors sccop very nice and the distortion to sustain a button .... yeah .. for the sustain ...

The manual is a bit bizzare on the other hand (it's just a page ..). It définise the button SCOOP as a Mid control but it's not really ca .. it is clear what will give the color distortion. It also defines the button as Sustain the gain of the distortion but it's not exactly it either ... M'enfin, do not read the manual for this pedal to go .. I put eight to the user manual not always realistic ..

SOUND QUALITY

So, I said yes .. October 1 ..

That's exactly what I wanted .. to the base metal is typed and filled his role well but the RAMPAGE, is not that ca .. Scoop button allows a range of distortion that can hit the same rock and blues. the range of sound is very interesting. Unlike the silver dragon whose sound bite is enough ... the sound of the Rampage going very well for solos .. very smooth and precise at a time. The button is ausi sustain its effect or legato sweep .. it's a real treat ..

on the other hand, if you want a distortion that allows you to approach an overdrive booster does not have much gain, that's not what you need .. impossible to approach an overdrive with ca ... (But hey, it's a distortion pedal as an overdrive .. no ..

OVERALL OPINION

Very good advice .. for € 85 for a pedal this size with a quality ROCKTRON. this choice I would do again in a single second ...
And yet, I have had an effect, I went through all brands .. the metal area to AX3000G .. but no, it's the Rampage, who won the match ..

Aesthetics and strength really good too ...

jbg's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

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

Rglages:
- 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)

UTILIZATION

Use could not be more simple.

SOUND QUALITY

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).

OVERALL OPINION

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)!

Likes:
- 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!
