    Great playing and tone! Your new clips are my favorite, actually the best HG clips I've heard period! To echo my reply on HC, very JUICY sounding while still having that tight, articulate cutting Rocca tone coming through. Great job! Whatever you're doing, stick with it. :AOK

    Good GRIEF!!!!

    Nailed it. abso-freaking-lutely NAILED the old EVH tone. The only thing missing is the Ted Templemen production skills to wrap it up in a bow. I don't say that lightly.

    It seems the HG100 is a VERY versatile amp. That is the first example of a Rocca that has really REALLY impressed me. I've heard other Rocca clips before that didn't 'do it' for me. This does. EVH aside, that's the goods, bro.

    Great playing and tone. How did you record differently? What were your settings and effects? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the info. I have a few of Doug's amps, can't say anything but great things. Doug is a great guy, got my eye on a new amp he's developing. Could be on my X- Mass list!

    Looks like I'll be writing that letter to Santa real soon. Doug are you going to offer the same mod I had done to my HG 100(watt selection)?

    It comes factory with a half power (wus-man) switch. It actually says that on the back!
