It''s Two-Rock''s 10th Anniversary. To commemorate the event they have released a new amp.

Rohnert Park, CA (February 12, 2009) - Two-Rock Guitar Amplification is celebrating their 10th Anniversary with a brand new amp. Combining features from several of their previous models, the 10th Anniversary Amplifier providers a clean channel with good range and plenty of gain on tap.  When it comes to soloing, the amp features a new lead channel design appealing to players of all styles, ranging from slightly driven, to mid- gain, soft or aggressive.    

The 10th Anniversary 50-watt tube rectified version offers Class A or Class AB operation.  The 100-watt version has power settings of 50 and 100 watts. They've used their PAF (Patent Applied For) Reverb circuit for the first time in a production amp. They've cut the tone loss and clean signal loading found in most other tube reverb circuit in use today. There are also independent reverb send and return controls for each channel.

The 10th Anniversary Amp also features separate contour controls for both the clean and lead channels. At the twelve o’clock position, the amp’s frequency response is flat.  Rotating the knob counter-clockwise, will decrease the highs and increase the lows. This allows switching between single coils and humbuckers without touching other controls or compensating for different speaker cabinets. This can also compensate for room acoustics without changing your entire preamp EQ.

A deep dive into faux amps, futuristic setups, and how to use modern technology’s powers for good.

The jump between analog and digital gear has never been more manageable. It no longer takes a rack full of outboard gear with a six-figure price tag to help realize not only the tone you have in your head, but the expansive workflows that started to pop up in the early ’80s. We’re now about a decade into the modern era of digital modelers and profilers and it seems like the technology has finally come into its own. “This is really the first time in a while where you can have bar bands playing the exactsame gear as stadium acts,” says Cooper Carter, a Fractal Audio Systems production consultant who has done sound design and rig building for Neal Schon, James Valentine, John Petrucci, and others.
