Cool. And pretty rare, these days. Some of the Rockman modules bring big bucks and there are a few specialists who charge handsomely to repair and rebuild those modules.

I really never cared much for the Rockman standard EQ curve. To me it sounds way better when the bass and treble that were pushed down are pulled back up, adding thump and clarity. But otherwise, yeah, I like the classic Rockman sounds pretty well.

Everything he has up top i had in the 80s. Ran that into a clean but loud JCM800 full stack. Sounded great for the time.

Oh yeah, when I used the Distortion Generator, I had upped the highs and the lows and tweaked those mids- Scholz' sound was really a cocked wah Marshall (even further emphasized with the Super Distortions he and Barry used). Still was a fun little box, and I used my Boss GE-7 with it too, IIRC. I also had the Delay/Chorus half rack.


And yes, worth some $ these days. I almost bought the XP100 (?) combo BITD, but I had bad luck with the Power Soak (it caught on fire!), and I was pretty leery of buying a full fledged amp from SR&D.

Come to think of it, I could get very similar sounds out of my old Line 6 Vetta stack.
