Before_'s review"Very good clean and distortion sounds"

Fender Roc Pro 1000
Solid-state amp BUT it has a tube for the distortion/drive, your choice.
Line out (8Ohms mini), send return, loop volume control, footswitch input (3 buttons on the pedalboard, to enable the distortion and choose the distortion (there are two), plus activating the reverb).
Spring reverb.
Not bad already.

USE

Easy to dial in, it features bass, mid and treble controls for the clean channel and the distortion channels, a reverb control and a VERY sensitive volume control.
The sound is five times as loud when you go from 1 to 2 on the volume control!
It will rock you off your feet.

SOUND

It's fine for my music style.
I have a 50W all-tube ENGL amp (screamer) that I keep in my rehearsal room.
I wanted an amp to play mainly clean sounds, at home.
I'm satisfied, the clean channel faithfully reproduces the sound of the guitar. It doesn't have that hi-fi sound often associated with solid-state amps.
It's deep, crystal-clear, the reverb is quite all right.
As I already mentioned above, be careful with the volume control or you can end up deaf, it's über-sensitive. 100W that won't make you blush. The speaker is an original Fender. The amp is made in the USA.
I play Fenders (Mustang and a Tele Aerodyne) and it sounds awesome, not as warm as a tube amp, true, but very satisfying.
The distortion sounds are also up to the job, not muddled, rather aggressive, you only need to work the EQ a bit and you can get convincing sounds.
The two distortions: One is a tad more nervous than the other, which is more "acid," while the other is more of a "fat overdrive."
Independent distortion and clean volume controls.
As for the loop, it does the job.
I play with some delays (dd20, Memory boy and VS h2O) and a chorus, the sound is well respected and not puffed up.

OVERALL OPINION

Yeah, okay, I've had it only for a couple of hours...
I also have an all-tube amp (ENGL), a small Epiphone combo (Valve junior) and I wanted a not-too-expensive amp to play clean guitar..
I'm very satisfied with the clean sound, it's a real treat. It's solid-state amp in the age of hybrids and modeling amps, of the multiplying of tube watts (as Jesus did with the loaves of bread).
The distortions aren't icky at all, they are usable.,
I'll do a test with my band to see how the sound comes through in a mix.
For me it's a very good tool, a good Fender, made in the US and, for the price, it would've been a shame to have missed it.

MGR/Demian kaus's review"Fender Roc Pro 1000"

Fender Roc Pro 1000
I bought it for $ 400 used in buenos aires.
I needed a big rock valve amp to use whit my tele.

The clean channel is more than clean, its fender!! it sounds like an old twin reverb and works great with strats and teles.
The double dry valve channel has 2 different overdrives that sounds like a big marshall, very hard!!!
You can also recreate vintage dist sounds with the second overdrive.
It´s perffect for hard rock and heavy metal.


it hasn´t got headphone output and you can´t play low because of it´s valves.
the volume pots for both channels are so sensible that you´ve got to be very carefully using them.


It is perfectly assembled and the speaker(eminence) it´s so great.
it has metal corners and a upper handle.


Roc Pro is the fenders line for heavy rock and but don´t forget the incredible clean sound and the spring reverb.

MGR/Anonymous's review"Fender Roc Pro 1000"

Fender Roc Pro 1000
I payed £180 S/H from a delear in Derby, GB


Sounds great, the clean sound is sweet and vaigly gangaly, an yet both the distrsions are in your face with out being nasty. On top of all souinds graet at volume 1 or 10, though the people in the next twon might complin if you use 10.



Very expancive foot switch and replacment of the pre-amp valuve is a VERY VERY bif job. You to take how amp to bits.



It's built like a rock, very solid, oftren used a seet, when not as an amp.



Really good allreound amp, any one giging should be useing one

yoTrakkz's review"Made for beginners"

Fender Roc Pro 1000
The Fender Rock Pro 1000 is a solid-state amp designed to replicate the sound of a tube. It's mostly a practice amp and has low wattage. There is a simple 1/4" input as well as a foot switch input. There are two channels, clean and boost, and there are no effects. There is simply one EQ knob, labeled contour.


UTILIZATION

Getting a good sound for practicing is about all you can hope for with this amp. I'd say that the best thing you can do is get a decent clean and dirty tone so that you can work on techniques appropriate for these sounds. The manual will explain the amp well, but there's not exactly a whole lot to explain really. There's just the volume for each channel, gain knob for the boost channel, 3-band EQ and Master Volume.


SOUNDS

The amp basically requires a lot of work to get good sounds. With a Fender Strat, I think that the only way to get a decent blues tone was to crank it to ten. That is pretty loud, and dangerous for the amp. The distortion was decent for metal, but not great for lighter styles of rock that required more character out of their amps. I would say that for beginners this is going to sound fine, mainly because they won't really know any better. Most seasoned players would be dissatisfied, even for practice.


OVERALL OPINION

I think this is ok for beginners, but I'd advise most advanced players to avoid it, unless you are a metal player in need of a practice amp, in which case it's probably a good idea. The price is pretty reasonable for the most part, which I think is good because I wouldn't want to pay more for this. But if you are a beginner than this is for you, this would be a great first amp to get you up and running and learning out to understand amps.
