Rockman Sustainor
A transistor preamp dating from 80

there are an input jack for a guitar to the front
et al 3 rear connection for footswitch and 3 for an effects loop

This preamp is separated into four "modules": the compressor, gate, the preamp has two channels and can have a choice of 4 different sounds changed to some extent) and finally a volume control that contains a "treble booster "assimilated presence of a knob


The config is very simple, just get used to the gear (the four parties are not totally independent) was not used to see what types of controls in a preamp (fader, knob, pousoirs.).

atention to the use of treble boost it really adds treble

Despite these drawbacks, but the sound is good at hand: At first we hack and then you get used to the setting

the black dot: the channel change, the choice of two volumes and the bypass are only accessible by footswitch: you should necessarily acquire (at least for a channel change)


This is the highlight of the preamp
4 proposed the sounds are very good.
the clean (notably the clean true type 2) are really not bad
a semi clean button apel allows for a slight crunch
distortions in the register it is not doing too badly notament through self clean that alters the rate of distortion depending on the volume of the guitar.
a fader treble trimmer adjusts the treble distortion therefore to have a more harsh or more shrill
the compresa doing its job (in spite of the unique adjustable sustain longer)
generally are obtained in crystal-clear clean sound really a distortion which operates more acute in the midrange
(D eqaliser V fan you would not be happy)
Of course this is not a real versatile lacks equalizer to really give the bass (although the loop is for that)
but everything in it is really good.


I have since qq days so I really do not toured the machine (I would change that opinion in a few months)
I really want to stand out from other preamp out of the usual config
It's a system that I find really different. that it is not versatile vriament does not bother me I prefer it to do only one thing well rather than any means.
in price is really cheap.
it cost a bit more expensive That a distortion pedal in but its actually more.

No I have not too much experience with the first aproach but we feel that it is a device that will not disappoint.

Edit 24/02/08
I like this preamp always the same. compulsively bought it ended up replacing my old stuff
I must say that my preamp was a precedend GT8. I sold and plans to invest in a chain effect 100/100 analog.

Rockman Sustainor
Pramp analogue to 1 / 2 rack, jack connection only ... 6.35 in the 80's produced from 1986 until 1992 (later bought by Dunlop brand ... do not rely on the service-APRS sale, and more ... y'en dunlop monster is a time when there a. .. Repair Tool)
good, the car look like the 80's, must love me .... drang has not, and in addition there are plenty of pretty LED lol


Trs simple. The rglages DIFFERENT:

1) - pramp gain (level pramp)
- Sustain along (compression level)

2) - smart gate (bypass function)

3) - distortion / filter
can select the type of sound (clean / distortion) then the level of distortion rgler, also two types of noise gate Intgr ...

4) output
- TREB boost
- Rhythm volume
- Volume 1 / 2 (for stereo)

otherwise, a link trs cool: (with much better explanations)


For fans of 80's sounds!! I am a fan ... so I love the clean sounds are amazing, and 2 types cln CLN2 (DPOS by Rockman), crystalline and clear ... really try this quality is impressive!! arpges the sounds of funky, bluesy ... it's really good with the trs intgre compression is a pure rgal.
Sounds ... 2 types saturated edge and dist ... super typs, trs accentus at the mediums you imagine ... even not the number of sounds that I scratch up with this toy ... all the guitarists in the 80's had this pramp, groups of hard, through the "pop", funk etc.. So to make mtal is not at all a, albeit with a qualiseur worthy of the name, I get the trs trs trs big sound!! but it's more on the (big) rock, heavy ... see the harmonics are fabulous ... I love playing with feedback, and with this pramp is an r gal: you get it very easy, and even a small amount excellent feedback!
Edge: the well well pchu rock, heavy rock rhythms!
Dist: rockman with distortion typically is duly!


I use it for six months, but it's a sound I wanted for ages. I am fortunate to have the pdalier, which is standard, and allows her to move from one another (one clean one distortion) and also to initiate the bypass. It is the only point that I found ngatif, the failure ACCS that two sounds (instead of 4).
For it is against the great stuff, a quality production that is more solid and it trs!!
Only found in time, if your fans of 80's sounds, go ahead, this is a killer pramp!!
Obviously I do it again this choice with his eyes closed. Associated with the stereo chorus of the same brand, you enter a sublime sound dimension. That top, but trs typ!
