    USE

    Very simple, easy regl very sensitive and qua ... the clearest sound at the saturated .... no manual because bought Cygnus .... may be a lack of rglage presence in qualisation especially for clean sounds ...

    SONORITS

    Well, I read that this preamp is made for those who write mtalleux ..... cel must be blind or deaf COULD BE ... (no hard feelings eh ?? !!) Let distortion, it there is a vintage fashion ideal for blues or rock !! .. Sounds fat and round, not too aggresif adapted .... all styles but not Mtal ... !!! For solis well saturs and metal riff, there is the distortion fashion Modern ... the ok..a can do it ... but beware, for dchirent pm which is not great either !!! ... Much less effective than a Chameleon (which I own) or a Progap (idem) .... For heavier things very well, is the fact ..... Otherwise, Pramp of this !!! ... The grain, a is the sudden !!! .... Hotter than the Vodoo exemple..surtout by high volume or voodoo is perfectible .... Otherwise, clear, contrairemnt what I've read can be totally clear !! ... On with a SH8 duncan, no obvious !!! But with doubles in intermediate positions, even with no worries the input 3/4 as I used! .. Its very clear round, warm ....

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I use it for a month, good machine, differente other Rocktron products, homogeneous product, silencieux..je have bought secondhand 400th, I am satisfied ... I eventually will change for Prophecy ... !!dropoff window

    Preamp "made in USA" lamps (2 12AX7, one per channel). It provides three types of sound ... a clean, a saturation and distortion if you can say (we will come back later!)
    It is programmable (99 presets), controllable via MIDI.
    The 4-band EQ, gain and level are adjustable via dials endless with great precision.
    I states that "input" is also back and avoid being forced to "plugger" in front ... this is a detail that may be important!

    UTILIZATION

    I states that "input" is also back and avoid being forced to "plugger" in front ... this is a detail that may be important!

    UTILIZATION

    Everything was very well explained in previous reviews ... I will summarize my way!
    If the use is relatively simple when al "used to this kind of gear fiddling, the configuration is quite complicated by the possibility of adjustments to the millimeter! 2 knobs for mediums, including one parametric ... this limit is too!
    You just take time to find what we seek.

    SOUNDS

    On three types of sounds, there is a clean, distortion and 2 sharing the same button. The biggest distortion is flashing at the loupiote button! This is to make the settings manually, of course ... then when everything is set and store MIDI control everything!

    I used it in several ways:
    Return-in amplifier (HT5, Ultra + V3M), and it was not terrible on the HT5 and the other good way ... as a lack of body, what power!
    In a 120-velocity and rockit, it was already better, more accurate, in that previously returned!
    -But then, in ENGL E840/50 a potato hell, even the metal most straight forward, the palm mute bad ... really big sound!
    Like what, the notice said that the Piranha should be used on a Power lamp is perfectly justified!

    I said that these were examples of using saturation and distortion ...
    I am not an expert in clean to make palaver. Certainly, it is not crystalline but good Fender, then to say it is not good, no ... it gets the job done much ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I tried JMP1 the Rockmaster, and the E530 it.
    The Piranha is the one that convinced me the most (and yet I have more!) Thanks to its multitude of programmable presets, and distos very powerful.
    Advantages: can be several different channels for each scraper that I have, all of which have different configs micro, wood key (or body), etc ...
    Least for me, are the loop and sounds for solos difficult to find (when we find one, we "store"!)

    I think that one day I would resume if the price is low ... just to the side of "nostalgia"!

    UTILIZATION

    Setup is super simple but super effective, the parametric EQ is great in medium end so you can have a very large palette of sounds, but also to refine your settings or the other can not.

    We get good quickly, so on we know what you are doing .......
    Go in 3 minutes it took her a good fare !!!!! It took me 3 minutes if you want to take the time to look a little dee.
    The manual is very clear, as the unit is purified, it works, all that we can love.
    I put as much as I do not see how we could do to have sth more practical.

    SOUNDS

    So the I'm not agree with the first view, it is FALSE, it is not a preamp for metalheads!
    This preamp Rocktron is the exception to the rule, it does not sound like Rocktron in general, not like the preamp rack from the same period, and it is not that to make Metal !!!!!!
    It's good for it has not had the success it deserves.
    This preamp sound more "Vintage" so to speak, more grain than vodoo (2 lamps), a little less fishing. The grain is the first thing that jumps the mouth with this preamp. Its the blues, rock, hard rock, metal can be accessed with the piranha. certtain but, if n is a vodoo background is larger than the piranha, compress etc. .. more
    In fact, this preamp, I think is one of the few who rack to suit those who do not like :-) racks and should be very well CEUs who love like me :-).

    For Epetion story, a friend came once to try it at home, knowing that a guy who loves more stacks etc. .., he was pleasantly surprised by the sound.

    I use a parametric equalizer with the output of the preamp, which allows me to have also sounds great when I want big, cool sounds crystal clear, the equalizer allows me to further refine the sound for sound example of the 80 or more the mesa ....

    I often use the single channel distortion, gain at 3 / 4, the grain is great, and I can add a compressor at start of string, top! For those who want to funk, a compressor before the golden rule and it is top Moumoune :-)

    No, the noise level I think it's great stuff especially in prices or we find it ....

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is qq years I have and I'm really happy, the addition of a compressor and an equalizer is perfect to finish my chain. Attention is always my compmresseur branch masi not equalizer that is often bypassed, it is present to bring me more functionality but not to fix my sound!
    To convince you, listen Mustaine and Pain of Salvation, is typically the grain can be obtained with the piranha.

    ct so again, no problem, but maybe I will prophesy that brings the Piranha, Voodoo, and multi-effects, such as love rocktron ... :-)

    The modern hard distortion while it's true, but the sound is not got my prcis trs, in any case has nothing do with voodu valve. The Pirahna has a particular grain trs who approaches the mesa's correct, but less well when even. The grain should especially swinging big greasy riffs, as the speed mtal and palm mutes are not trs imprcis and "clean" with this pramp.
    Note: the bass and treble are very effective when they are pushed back (above 12 db), the mediums paramtriques offer a range of sounds INTERESTED, but between 550 MHz and 1 kHz and between -10 dB and 0 dB we get the best feedback, if you choose other frquences or hollow sound too, this one sounds fast "transistor" in short, it's not pretty pretty

    OVERALL OPINION

    This will be especially happy prampli followers of heavy mtal looking for a large grain. Those who prfrent mtal the coldest its "surgical" (including me), and those looking for a good clear sound will turn to the valve or other voodu pramp.
    Nanmoins pramp this is trs good, you just have the useful because it is rather special use Reserved

    Otherwise, with respect to the obtension a good sound, easily obtained basic sounds like Metal, Rock, Blues, Clean "clean". The qualisation is active and mdium paramtriques which provides sound trs trs Varis easily.
    So easy to use.
    For cons, I do not know if it's the grain of the particular amp (or lack of habit of using the active EQ), but it's not empty to find "tons of sounds DIFFERENT "usable. I think, in the words of the remaining users, need to spend time there, but I thought that a prampli so "simple" could be so minute rgler: mean really prev noticeable differences in sound when turning the knobs up a notch.
    The HUSH operates the hair! I was the dj Intellifex, but the it seems to work even more effectively!

    SOUNDS

    The grain is very special and not everyone will like aps. I usually play on the Peavey and it compltement Different. (But hey, it also has that I bought it!)
    Standard style is used for everything: pop, blues, rock, metal, ...

    The clean sounds are beautiful trs, "peace" or crystalline depending on rglages. on the other hand, if you have high output pickups (EMG 81, 85 or otherwise), prvoyez to gain a (0-70) or lower the level of (in the Input knob faade).
    The distortion channel "vintage" is fun for even the Hard Rock FM. The more, the sound is peace and quite warm.
    The distortion channel sends a little more modern gain levels and especially the grain appears more Submitted on other channels. I thought there would be more gain available but only when the metal even for fairly straight forward (unless the same when Peavey!)

    Compared to the Peavey (DSOL is my only REFERENCE!) Is more peace, more "fat", a bit less prcis and when I think even less gain (on my Tubefex I feel to reach the piranha max gain when I'm half the knob!).

    But even when the grain is very nice, trs typ. It is his strong point.

    I did that for three days so I'll post one when I complment matriserai more bte!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I am being tested with it. The grain is cool but I find the need to test before buying. It is trs polvalent priori and easy to use. Prvoyez even when long hours to find a palette of sounds Varis and best use of the EQ parameter.
    Notice the effects loop: I plug my Inteelifex in, there's no major problem except a priori its bizar with 10ms time limit but confirm. (That I was put at 8 and 9 no rating)

    Added: After a few weeks of use, I conquered! The sound is really good even if it takes the Entran and ear for rgler. Since then I have a test Recto Recording (with same cabinet and HP) and I find that saturated fats are also the other one! on the other hand, lightweight advantage on the front for clean sounds (but especially the switches to the widget). Finally, for the price, I prfre the Piranha!

    Rocktron PiranhaPublished on 09/14/11 at 13:46
    Rocktron has put out some very affordable and unique music equipment. This is one of their preamps that they decided to make that on the outside looks very cool and on the inside had some great tones as well. This is basically a three channel preamp consisting of a clean, to mild overdrive, any new modern high gain channel. You also get a consistent EQ parameters consisting of bass, maids, treble, and then of course your gain and level. You also have a couple knobs for the output level input level which is consistent with other preamp designs.

    UTILIZATION


    This is a pretty easy preamp to dial-in a decent tone with. It's pretty self explanatory and the options and features that has are pretty basic it's overall construction. You also have some outputs for going to a power amp as well as inputs. Also a PA system or board bypassing any other power amps or speaker cabs. This is a fun little preamp and he get some great tones if you have enough time to really digging in tailor the EQ to your liking.

    SOUNDS


    The tone of this is very high again in modern sounding compared to a lot of other preamps. I would say that this is a better sounding preamp then add some Marshall preamps . This is about half the price of some other preamps as well. So this is a good buy for someone looking to get a three channel preamp with a great deal of versatility and it's small sleek one space rack unit.

    OVERALL OPINION


    I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good rock tone and doesn't want shell out a lot of money for Marshall or some other preamp that cost a lot more than this one. Get a good enough sound if you couple it with a good solid power amp and your to get the tones and power that you really need for gigging or recording with if you get it mic-ed up to a speaker cabinet.

    - Missing a SETTING THE prsence, o sounds a bit shrill at times lead (it has to be corrected with an external eq).

    Otherwise, the rest is very well: two 12AX7 REALLY food (hot!), MIDI controls with 99 presets, mids Settings, two distos (a distortion "marshallesque" and a more distal nag more "greenhouse", "V" to boost the bass & treble), reliable construction "made in US" (it will be aperoit when you open the machine to switch lamps).

    UTILIZATION

    Using very easy, as a head amp with the mids paramtriques more. aa t a real pleasure for me APRS m'tre shit for two years on rglages monstrously complex Voodu Valve (which changes every time you play depending on the mood of days ...).

    10/10 So, this impeccable ct l.

    Note: the "mids paramtriques" can be as utiliss:
    - As a rglage supplmentaire low (they go down until 250Hz, so convenient to boost the bass on the clean sounds or distos fat);
    - SETTING THE prsence as in the rglant frquence above 5kHz; ct practice to remove a bit "showy" in the modern distortion, especially for leads, but suddenly we can not act on the mids.
    -> So much more than SETTING THE mids!

    For use with Poweramp LAMPS for the Piranha can be expressed.

    SOUNDS

    So a little update on the piranha lamps: it is the only home prampli Rocktron be really quip lamp power (the Voodu & Prophesy have a 12AX7 9V supplies only, and before the DSP, and it therefore has no rle in distortion but only on the sound compression):
    - Gre a 12AX7 that the signal before distortion (say, clear sound for short)-that 's the second when looking at the face of Piranha.
    - 12AX7 one who "participates" distortion (but empty, to reach such levels of gain with a single lamp, there are some clipping diodes)-that 's the 1st preamp when looking at the front .

    The sound comes from the Piranha so true of those two lights, at least in part (I would say 10-15%) was then cleans out these "hot" (I love the cleans Piranha!) And these distortions crpitent that, as the amp lights. You can feel the diffrence trs significantly with Voodu for example, which sounds more "numrique" (especially when you push the input lvl) while having the same grain: the grain "Rocktron" (this lightweight "DZZZ" in the treble, like the Mesa Recto). I had fun improvising with Voodu while a friend played a rhythm on the Piranha (with pedals chorus / delay H2O), the heat is amazing diffrence! Piranha is the hottest, most Voodu numrique & artificial (but hey, the effects Intgr can make up for everything, including lead).

    Now, note that even when the Piranha is not a 100% TRUE preamp as lamps or Peavey RockMaster Triaxis (which are far more lamps and a well suprieure impdance output: 150 ohms for the Piranha, 20kohm for Peavey, 47kohm for TriAxis). This includes the distortion "modern" (flashing LED): a sounds much less "tubes" that THE FIRST, with a somewhat garish ct and its "square corners" (as if its silent concentrated in the center of the spectrum, and ... well ... hh square corners. THE FIRST distortion, however, sounds more "tube" and is similar this can be achieved with a Marshall JCM hormones to boost TS9 (thanks to the INPUT LEVEL faade of Piranha acts as a boost).

    Please note: sounds much better high-volume (output level at least half) and a high level of (input level between 2 and 3h). Prcisons: I read in other reviews here that the Piranha was not a large reserve of gain ... Warning: you must see that there are two gains in the Piranha!
    - A "pre-gain" in between (the knob "Input level" in faade, which acts as a boost, as if they used a TS9 on the channel distortion of a tube amp full);
    - A "gain" in the normal menu (the knob "gain").
    This dpend output level of your guitar pickups, but I like to get the personal input level until 2-3am, you win the normment in gain & fat (and compression also ...).
    Sound clear: 9 / 10 (nobody's perfect!)
    Disto 1: 8.5/10
    Disto 2: 7 / 10 (APRS I use may be the wrong track ... rglages)
    ______________________________
    Average rating: 8 / 10
    ** EDIT: I put 9 / 10 as I found out how to get excellent distos with Piranha, including distortion with modern pedals to need a external eq. Take a 10-band pedals (as plutt 7) to act on the low (80-300Hz) & treble (around 2-3kHz). And The sound is yours! **

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had a month to I t dboussol dpart by ct a bit "dry" & dynamics, but I left two years with the Voodu Valve (the preamp had accustomed me a groooose compression and lots of effects), but in the end, it comes back to basics: a good basic sound, with dynamics, like a head amp. For it is in fact: The Piranha is and sounds like a kind of "mini-head hybrid".

    A little Drout therefore beginners, I am increasingly won over by this preamp is not as "plug & play" it looks (well more than the dj Voodu!). It takes a little time to find what works, especially on the mids frquence: for large rhythmic lgrement I cut the mids (yes, unlike what you read here or on the the net distortion in the mids must be cut from the Piranha, between 500 and 800Hz I would say).

    Report quality price: I got about 300, it's okay, I think such a device should be around 250 now (the sounds are a little older, including two disto and then the effects loop unusable ...).
    ** EDIT 03/03/2009: I finally found what was missing ... the Piranha is a external EQ pedals! PDAL With 10 bands (I took a MXR KRK) and some rglages purposes (especially on the presence and sub-bass), sounds pramp become more subtle, more polished pros & more. L I can say with suitable hardware prampli this is a killer !!!!**

    PS = and do not forget: this needs a Piranha amplification lamps. No transos.

    Does any adjacent words, and stone has laforge rsum the overall situation of piranha in my opinion (problem of the effects loop, almost a requirement to use Eq.paramtrique ... )

    What is the power dlivre?
    What connection?
    What rglages the effects? ...

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration is it simple?

    So no, the configuration is not so simple what in the air, it takes a lot to play on the mids, while mounting the input and output for the dynamic IT CAN BE USED the "global" because the unlike the first view, I find it strangely useful because it adds a boost non ngligable I find
    I also put a lamp in EH v1 and v2 tung floor, which adds an incredible warmth and a lot of gain!
    we must also put in SERIES, forget immediately the effects loop!
    Do you get a good sound easy?
    the piranha is not plug and play, no ... I almost sell it before finding my sound: I RPET, a legalization is supplmentaire ncessaire rvle and the real sound of the bte! <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt="mrgreen" />

    The manual is clear and sufficient? ... Bahh, not really <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt="wink" /> they say not all the talk on AudioFanzine and it is 2 or 3 have searched how to do this spitting piranha!

    SOUNDS

    Is it your style of music?
    I play hard until the most mtal nag, trs, and the piranha does a good job for the big fat rhythm well, I use a voodu for leads because I find too little on prcis gnral solos ....

    washburn pro st ...

    What kind of sound you get and with what rglages ("crystalline", "bold ",....)?

    piranha with the grain of the famous "dzzzzz" suits me perfectly for all parties mtal rhythmic, multi couplsa good, he did a good job, he is able to dlivrer all types of saturated and dbrouille is all the styles I think, with a warmth that few know pramp dlivrer it really a sound guy, I love ....
    What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest?
    I play trs little plain, but I guess with good rglages, ilse dbrouille as well as on other channels ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    How long have you use it? 2 years, I have only recently discovering their potential, and it changed my life <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt="wink" />
    What is the particular feature you like best and least?
    sound brutal, bold, vibrant, warm, I waited a long time ca! but is not in my opinion for Steve Vai and Satriani budding too imprcis ds it gets too much speed ....
    Have you tried many other models before acqurir? I think we just say ...
    pod xt pro, peavey RockMaster has little prs all other Rocktron ...
    The piranha is really a pramp hand, and even if the lights in it are not "real" food, it's dlivre trs trs still a big ... time, condition of being good company and be a good big religious power amp lamps ... (in my case, a peavey classic 50/50, but that's the case dja ...)
    How do you report qualitprix? Correct, I see too that there may be others with such a grain in this price range ..... the ENGL E530 can be?
    Exprience with, you will do again this choice? ... I do it again without any hsitation this choice, unless you can buy the Mesa, because the sound on the channels that dlivre distortion should trs well Rhythmic my games. (Especially in the bass, I expect to test on a 7-string ...) I do not advise can be those that want a pramp ultra versatile, it is not enough "clean" for a ... But for those who want to do the heavy, less than 300, go for it!

    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Preamp MIDI-lamps, 3 types of sounds: clean, drive, distortion.

    A lot of tuning very much effective and influential on the sound, which does not make this preamp easy to adjust, but once you get the sound just save it in the bank and it does not touch anything!

    UTILIZATION

    The setup is fairly simple, it has all the usual range of settings with the exception of 2 wheels for mediums: a general parametric + 1, thereby sculpt the sound with diabolical precision.

    Special mention for the mini wheel "input drive" to adjust the overall gain so that they do not have to modify the presets that you play on the tube gear or a combo, useful if one uses this preamp as a solution "nomad."

    SOUNDS

    This preamp excels in his big fat rock well to metal, without reaching the extreme metal as it gets a bit too rough, but the saturation range is perfectly sufficient for 95% of guitarists, for now I n 'I found nothing that sounds better than this preamp and even by getting into the gear costing 2 or 3 times its price (ADA, Marshall, Soldano, etc. ...).

    I plug it into the loop of a Peavey Triple X head, accompanied by a multi Boss, which I Parmet enjoy MIDI and programmable capabilities of the set, the sound is huge! guitars: Washburn N4, Ty Tabor RGX Yamaha, Lag Roxanne Bédarieux Strat, Tele ...

    3 tones: clean crunch that I do that because I think it sounds a bit flat, I prefer to use a simulator on my Fender Twin multi crystalline cleans to get this channel for me is the weak point preamp,
    Drive 1 (distortion) for drives and solid singing, a little vintage but with a good definition, we get sounds ranging from AC / DC Maiden to give a token,
    Drive 2 which adds a boost to Drive, there is a big pat on the spot that Maiden, Metallica, Megadeth are at your fingertips, always with that little old school super nice side, ie a lot of fat and heat in sound and good definition provided they do not put all the knobs to max (the famous drive input in particular)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 3 years and it will remain my big config for many years.

    The value for money on occasion in my opinion is unbeatable for such quality.

    I do it again this election 20 times if necessary, also a glitch if I happened on this preamp, I'll buy another for sure.
