Super Head

Postby webb137 » Thu Jun 08, 2017 5:52 pm

Greetings all!

Just wanted to post a couple of photos of my Super Head. I've had it since '93 or '94 (can't remember exactly...). It doesn't have a date of manufacture- don't know why there wasn't one printed. I've never seen another. It sounds great, and if I'm not mistaken, when the distortion section is in either of the distortion/clean mix modes the compressor is disabled. The longest delay time (220ms) MAY actually be 340ms as I can synch the Super Head and an XPR and get identical delay repeats. Go figure...

Years ago (maybe 20...) I posted a couple of photos but they're long gone. Thanks for keeping the Rockman spirit alive!

That's a very nice system. I'd love to see it in action.

Nice! Looks like it's in great shape still. Is this an original or one of Jark's creations? If original, it could be one of only two or three known in existence.

Yes. It's an original. Not an XP100 repurposed-although those are very cool, too!

I'm planning on duplicating a dovetailed case for it out of a ridiculously quilted piece of maple (don't know when I'll get around to doing that). Sort of a "Mesa-Boogie" Rockman with the cane grille in place of the black grille cloth.

51noname- I'll contact you as soon as I get time.

I have to say, David's Marshall style XP100 is pretty sweet looking.
