    This popped up on YouTube recently. It's "We're Ready", a Boston Cover on a Rockman Soloist:

    As did I. I played one in a music store a few years back and it didn't bowl me over the way it did years ago. I found the GK to be lacking balls and bottom. I wanted so bad to like it, it was priced very nice. It just didn't do it for me the way it did when I first heared it.

    I have created a monster. This is now tied for the most replied-to thread in the amp room of all time… and its about Rockman products. When I made it, I expected fewer than ten responses.

    Taylor Rhodes is at it again, covering "Walkin' At Night". He does a nice job of demonstrating the auto-clean circuit on his Sustainor 200:

    Here's another recent Rockman video. It's an XPR mixed with some other lineups. Watch the onscreen notes for the details:

    I tried running my Sustainor double IC 200 into my Lexicon PCM70 last night. Mind blown!!!

    Any thoughts on the XPR? I've actually seen one for a fair price in Europe (!). I assume it will need refurbishing; is this something that the knowers-that-be have looked into?

    Getting a refurb for a XPR is probably going to be tricky. Rockman-Repair.com and B5 Amplification don't work on them that I'm aware of. I heard of one being worked on lately, but that was a really unique situation involving a former SR&D employee.

    I saw that. There is, however, a seller who claims that he has refurbished his XP100. A one-off? A lie? I don't know.

    Turns out that the patch cable was bad. Using a new cable, it actually sounds pretty good for such an old compressor. If I were to keep it, I'd use it for acoustic (feedback prevention) vs electric play. Degrades pick attack and dynamics to a point, though not as badly as it did with the failed patch cable. For electric, the original Barber Tone Press is the best I've found.

    I still have my soloist from the 80's.
    Great sounding box!

    If anyone has a schematic to the Rockman Sustainor, I'd love to see it. More specifically, the tone stack.
