Rocktron Utopia G100 Mutlieffects Pedal Review

August 4, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 



Rocktron Utopia G100Floor-mounted guitar multiteffect units are unrivaled when it comes to stow-and-go convenience, but too often that convenience comes at a price. Most pro-quality units with rugged construction and versatile performance capabilities can cost as much as a good amp, while many affordably priced units have severely limited parameters and tones that aren’t quite good enough for stage use. For many guitarists, dreams of a compact, rugged multieffect unit with an affordable price tag and a reasonable selection of professional-quality “meat-and-potatoes” tones seemed as unattainable as a perfect society.

With the Utopia G100 Professional Guitar System, Rocktron hopes to prove that dreams can become reality. This compact multieffect floor unit is built like a tank, packed with an impressive selection of versatile effects and priced less than what you’d pay for a boutique stomp box. Unlike many other low-priced multieffect units, which seem to suffer from a “jack of all trades, master of none” design, the Utopia G100 is designed to deliver the tones, effects and features that matter most to guitarists and operate in a streamlined and straightforward fashion.

Rocktron Black Rose Octaver Stomp Box Guitar Pedal

Nothing sounds quite like an Octaver, and Rocktron makes that point with the introduction of the Black Rose!

Part of the Rocktron Boutique Series of stomp boxes, the Black Rose comes in a rugged metal chassis with retro-custom designed, laser-etched artwork. The Black Rose Octaver is a true bypass pedal: when turned of it is out of the signal path.

Controls for the Black Rose Octaver include: Thorns, Merge, and Fragrance. Thorns determines the intensity and tracking (-12 steps) of the Octave below Effect. Merge controls the Mix between the original input and the Octave effect. Fragrance controls the overall tonal color of the effect.

A special switch called Roots allows you to go from Thick (heavy crunch) to Thin (smoother). Read more
