Is the Two Rock Thing Just Hype

I'm gonna' pull the trigger on a two rock 2x12 in teal/turqouise suede w/ "special" grill (sent in by me) all because of you. Now all I'll need is a Kimock head in that colour. :( You really did get me GASsing for that thing, just so you know, and I know I keep saying it, but it's true. I wonder how the UG-30 will sound thru the TR 2x12...

who me?
i could bring my signature 2-12 cab over and U could find out...

and, just to stay on topic, as regards two-rock and hype.
i talked to quite a few folks about what cab to run w/ a d-style amp and got a lot of T-R sig. 2-12 answers. i wondered about the birch ply cab and was told that a pine cab would probably overload and sound muddy w/ those quad EL34s running at +500 volts. i took a gamble and trusted folks that i had gotten good advice from and placed the order.

great cab and also sounds really good w/ the komet and my marshall 1987. was it 'too much money'? it really wasn't all that much more than my other fave 2-12 cab the THD and it wasn't as much as the vox fawn tolex cab w/ celestion blues. i'd say it's just about right.

the speakers aren't fully broken in yet, but already the cab is very big sounding and i think that the T-R guys might be doing something to control resonances because it's got quite the lovely, blooming type type of sound that makes reverb sort of redundant.

so, IMO, the two rock signature 2-12 cab is not hype.
but that's only one in their product line.

Actually, I heard that Behringer is coming out with a new amp that will give Two-Rock a run for the money.

Yes, that is a joke! :p. Two-Rock amps sound incredible, and the company is great to work with -- fabulous folks there!

Here's a link to our in-depth review of their Custom Reverb Signature. Our reviewer LOVED this amp.

We also love the tone from Fuchs. And Mesa/Boogie. And Fender. That's the great thing about amplifiers... everyone builds them differently and as such, they all have their own character and sound. And the other great thing about amps is that you don't have to only own just one!

My wife thinks I should have at least five or six good amps to choose from at home. OK, that's my second joke. :)

there's no defense like being overly defensive.
Overly defensive is offensive IMO.

BTW, $10,000 could buy a couple of high $$$ escorts, or a couple hundred hookers.

Just like (apparently) with amps, you have no taste in hookers. :D I mean, c'mon, that's $50 bucks a pop.... you're in Pignose territory!

Wow, looks lively in here.

After playing a couple of 2-Rock's, my answer to the original question is...YES.

Not a bad amp, but too much Vasili.

You... Sir.... took that entirely out of context. Your focus should have been on "pig nose". Big discounts to be had there....
i think our marko might have been confusing 'pignose' w/ 'pigfoot'.
'pigfoot' was a euphumism that had it's origins from the 'jazz' age.
within the context of the discussion involving hookers and such, a 'pigfoot' could 'bring home the bacon'...

Ok guys, I deleted that last message. I read Joe's message quickly and unfortunately it rubbed me the wrong way (specifically that I had interviewed for a job, not the part that I had met Joe or gone to their shop) and I regret that I quickly fired off a response which should have been more considered. So to you, Joe, I apologize for my strange response.... and thanks to those who let me know I was out of line!

Hey, no problem, Jackie. I thought perhaps you were one of the many locals who have stopped by to chat. I wasn't implying anything. Of course, I do know a littel more about you now, and that's good!
Thanks for playing!:RoCkIn
