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.
