Solid, workhorse of an amp, rugged built, lots of power

Comments about Roland GA-212 2X12 200W Guitar Combo Amplifier:

This combo amp is just what I was looking for. I wanted a combo amp that is simple and straight forward to use. It has power to spare at 200 watts. The cabinet is built to take the abuse of the road. The back of the amp has all the patching abilities needed. I use the Boss GT100 and patch into the amp both from the front and the back. With the push of one (1) button I can switch form the pre-amp of the amp to all the different pre-amps of the GT100. When recording, I run two lines to the console to achieve that big guitar sound. With the patching abilities of this amp, I can achieve the same sound when in the studio. This amp is a stereo amp, giving me a solid 100 watts per side. The tube amp that is in the GT100 is always the same every night. I program the GT100 to accommodate the entire night's song list. Bottom line, this amp delivers, you have to use all the features it offers to really get the most out of it. I have other players come and check out my rig, commenting my sound was solid. I would recommend this amp to anyone. Simple to use, rugged, power, stereo and can be stacked two high and linked together.

Hardy, simplified rig, but needs an EQ to come alive.

Comments about Roland GA-212 2X12 200W Guitar Combo Amplifier:

This is a solid practice/backup combo amp. I use a Marshall 210C tube combo for gigs, but needed a decent combo for practice and a backup should something go wrong with the Marshall. This has a nice footswitch, easy to use controls, 4 channels, and is built very solid. It is a modeler of sorts, but with it's own sound signature. To my ears, it is a bit too muffled with more than enough low end and not enough mids. You can get fairly close to a good tone by dropping the lows almost all the way out and kicking the mids way up. But, it still lacks something. The presence knob is helpful, but I found that using an eq on the front end gets it to a reasonably useful state. I'm not complaining so much as just giving you some knowledge. If you're like me, you can't really get to play on one of these unless you have it shipped to your door. I will keep it and use the eq. This solid state rig allows me to set it up similar to the way my footswitch is for the Marshall. That allows me to practice with the same movements and not wear down my tubes. Overall - good solid state rig. Got rid of my Peavey Vypyr tube hybrid which sounded better but I didn't care for the noise gate and struggled to get a clean sound that I really liked. Also the foot controller for the Vypyr is just to "toy" like for my taste. I could get passed that if everything else was acceptable, but the combination of the noise gate, clean sound issue, and foot controller was too much for me to keep it. I know there are a lot of fans out there of the Vypyr and there should be. But for me, this just filled the need I had better.
