Electroplex Amplifiers Announces TR Series

The new series will include the Rocket 22/TR, Rocket 35/TR, and Rocket 35-EL/TR and will be available in both combo and head versions.

Fullerton, CA (January 9, 2014) -- Electroplex Amplifiers will debut the TR Series of tuberectified Rocket Amplifiers at the 2014 Winter NAMM Show, January 23-26, in Anaheim, California.

The TR Series consists of three tube-rectified Rockets:

The Rocket 22/TR features a pair of 6V6 power tubes and a GZ34 rectifier for a warm, compressed “old-school” chime and dynamic touch response. Operable at 22 watts or 12 watts, the Rocket 22/TR delivers tasty “tweed” tone and expanded expressiveness.

The Rocket 35/TR uses a pair of 5881 power tubes along with a GZ34 rectifier to deliver 35 watts of classic “American” power for both clean headroom and creamy crunch tones. The Rocket 35/TR also operates at 22 watts for extra dynamic compression and enhanced touch sensitivity.

The Rocket 35-EL/TR lashes a pair of EL34 power tubes to the GZ34 for uniquely “British” Rocket flavorings. Clean tones with “bite” and classic UK overdrive chime sounds are all here in this 35-watt tone machine. And operating at 22 watts, the Rocket 35-EL/TR delivers that bright EL34 chime and sting at almost any volume.

The Electroplex TR Series will be available in combo and head/cab configurations, and are available for orders now.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
