Small and powerful, this model blends the classic tones from Marshall®'s JCM 800 series with the trademark clarity and richness of Soldano®'s overdrive. It's the ideal choice for those seeking a light and straightforward amp that is both loud and clear. Lots of dynamics and character, and surprising all-around versatility from a single-channel amp of such compact dimensions.
In Hi Gain mode it's possible to run the gamut from clean to classic metal tones – and the Rocket is a pedal-friendly design that will accept your fave effect boxes and boost pedals for even heavier sounds. The Low Gain mode will turn the amp into a blues machine, with perfect saturation. The Rocket also sports an active, tube-driven effects loop with hard bypass – everything your delay, chorus and other time/modulation-based effects need to unleash their full power.
We supply the Alien Rocket in 5 versions:
• Head 18W (2 x EL84)
• Head 30W (4 x EL84)
• Combo 1x12" 18W (Alien Ace speaker)
• Combo 1x12" 30W (Alien Ace speaker)
• Combo 2x12" 30W (Alien Ace speaker)
We envisioned the Rocket strictly as a single-channel design. Even though it has two gain modes, we do not offer a footswitch option due to the shared, single master volume control.
