My little desk rig with Rockman Eq +

Post by squatch » Sun Jul 17, 2016 6:36 am

Newbie here!
I've started collecting Rockmodules. I had a Sustainor in the 80's and miss it. So far, I've found an EQ, but I want more!

Office desk rig (from top):
Sony TD-5 Pro cassette deck
Zoom 9050 multieffects
Rockman Instrument Equalizer
Aiwa C30 & P30 preamp and power amp

Hi Squatch,

That's a neat little rig. Thanks for the post and joining us!

Best,

Thanks Bruce! Nice to be here!
Just an oldtimer getting nostalgic for some nice old gear heh
Not many Rockmodules on this side of the planet but I keep my eyes peeled
My first Sholz was the Power Soak when they came out, my Princeton Reverb chewed through a lot of valves though!
I did gig with a Sustainor in the late 80's, can't remember which model...prolly a 100
here's more pics of my bunch o' stuff

Way to go!

The Sustainor is best with 2 EQs, one in the Clean and one in the Distortion loop. After that I suggest a MIDI Octopus and MIDI pedal to start controlling the beast.

Thanks guitarbuilder! hopefully another eq turns up over here in Oz
I lucked out with the other one because it was listed as a Rocktron and nobody noticed it heh
I've got an Empress ParaEq pedal I can use with the Sustainor but I'd like another Instrument Equaliser

Cheers, squatch

Having fun with my Big Sky reverb that arrived this week, sounds great with the Sustainor!
